More Details: 

Let Aqua Cat be your floating resort while on your group dive trip, with captain and crew at your service. With bar, meals, scuba diving and water sports included in the price of your adventure vacation, Aqua Cat is comparably priced to a Caribbean luxury cruise or resort vacation. The difference is that the service is much more personal and it includes all activities and excursions. Divers will love the spacious main salon and will enjoy an extremely smooth ride. Her ability to cruise at a speed of 14-knots will get you to dive sites quickly while her 35-ft beam will ensure a smooth ride.  The Aqua Cat has 10 large outside cabins each with 2 large windows, en-suite baths and over sized king, queen or twin beds. There is also one inside twin cabin. Non-divers will be catered to as well! Those choosing not to dive will be able to take advantage of daily eco-adventures. 

While the Northern Exumas are only 30 miles from Nassau, there are no daily dive operators in this area. You can experience some of the greatest variety of diving found anywhere in the Caribbean. The Exumas have walls starting at 40′, as well as high speed drift dives, shallow reefs and shark feeding dives. There is a large Blue Hole between Nassau and the Exumas. For over 30 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!
Will you see sharks? Yes! Many of the dive sites are frequented by Caribbean Reef Sharks and Nurse Sharks and sometimes hammerheads! There is normally at least one shark feed offered. This is the perfect time to see sharks up close and in action!
