Aboard the Cat Ppalu


Where we are diving

Dive through tunnels, caverns, and shipwrecks, with the chance to encounter Caribbean reef sharks on almost every dive. Explore the ocean floor that is bursting with colorful coral and sponges. The crystal-clear waters and calm currents offer a crisp view of the underwater world around you.

Diving in the Bahamas is unlike any other diving you’ll experience. The diverse marine life and variety of narrow passages and tunnels give divers the chance to be completely surrounded by its beauty. Marine life that has been spotted includes Nassau groupers, porcupine fish, and snappers. The Bahamas is also known for its amazing shark-feeding dives. Grab your camera and get ready to be amazed.

The Cat Ppalu is the ultimate charter yacht. Sailing with an experienced captain and crew, the Cat Ppalu takes you through the Exuma Cays to remote walls, wrecks, and high-speed drift dives. Because visitors to this part of the Bahamas are limited to dive liveaboards, you’ll find pristine waters and abundant marine life. The variety of dive sites is unmatched in the Caribbean.

Trip Leader

Angie Fuller

Dan Stalder, Store Manager and Instructor Trainer

Born and raised in Nebraska, I had no thoughts, dreams, or bucket lists that included scuba diving or the underwater world. I became a certified Open Water Scuba Diver in August 2006. My only regret is that I did not start much earlier in my life! I instantly had a new passion in life, and now I am blessed to have the privilege of introducing others to the incredible world of diving.

I have been a scuba Store Manager since February of 2012, and am currently an SSI Instructor Trainer with the Platinum Pro 1000 recognition. When I am not diving, there is still a good chance you will find me outdoors.  I enjoy motorcycles, forestry, hunting, horses, campfires, antiques, cooking, and working on my acreage.

Yacht Details

Where we are staying

The 65-foot crewed sailing charter yacht serves as your home. The Cat Ppalu is a schooner-rigged sailing catamaran with space for 12 passengers in 6 cabins. Its low draft enables it to anchor close to uninhabited islands for further exploring. While onboard you can also enjoy many water sports like fishing, snorkeling, and kayaking, and stand-up paddleboarding. Since this is your charter, you can choose what you want to do. There are no crowds and no set itineraries. You can sit back, relax, and choose your own adventure.
