Live Aboard luxury -  Aqua Cat

       For those looking for a luxury dive adventure, Aqua Cat is the answer. A full-service floating resort, comes complete with accommodations for couples, singles and groups, scuba diving, dive equipment rental and storage, meals, snacks, bar, water sports, eco-adventures and port nights. Our award-winning captain and crew are at your service.

      We arrive on Saturday and will head to the dock.  There is a great beach bar there and pool where we can lounge about until boarding begins at 6pm followed by orientation and rum punch.  We depart the dock to begin our diving adventure after dinner.

      While the Northern Exuma Cays are only 30 miles from Nassau, land-based dive operators are too far away to dive this area. You can experience truly virgin diving. The Exumas have walls starting in as little as 40′, as well as drift, reef, and shark dives. There is a large blue hole located between Nassau and the Exumas. For over 40 years, much of the northern Exumas has been a National Underwater Park with no fishing, spear fishing or collecting allowed. Because of these laws, there are miles of undersea gardens in which coral, sponges and fish abound. Turtles, rays and sharks are seen regularly on most dive sites. Goliath grouper truly are gargantuan in the Exumas!

       Throughout the week there will be opportunities to go ashore for swimming, snorkeling and beach combing,

      Upon return to Nassau on Friday afternoon, the crew hosts a sunset cocktail party at 6:00 p.m. followed by dinner shore (not included). Saturday morning at 9:00 am, guests are transferred to the Nassau Airport or a local hotel.
