Aboard the Aqua Cat


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 include Nassau groupers, porcupine fish, snappers, and bottlenose dolphins. The Bahamas is also known for its amazing shark-feeding dives. Grab your camera and get ready to be amazed.

All activities start from the Aqua Cat. Its spacious dive deck is equipped with showers, rinse tanks, diver ladders, camera storage, and set-up area. This liveaboard allows you access to dive spots that cannot be reached otherwise. That means the waters around it are pristine and crawling with marine life.
