Concierge Review of All Star Liveaboard’s Aqua Cat Dive Boat

Quality of the Aqua Cat Liveaboard

The 102-foot Aqua Cat catamaran offers eleven cabins with private bathrooms and showers. All but cabin 11 provide ocean views, but we’ll go deeper into this in the berths section. What sets the Aqua Cat apart is all the extra room a catamaran provides over a monohull, especially with the three-level design. Not only is the Aqua Cat spacious, it has enough muscle to cruise at 14-knots for the overnight crossing from Nassau or to the next dive site.

The first level has the dive deck and guest cabins. I’ve been on liveaboards that feel like a dive gear flea market exploded on the deck after the first dive. Having a dedicated dive deck with plenty of room for all your gear was fabulous for enjoying the liveaboard part of the adventure. Even if you’re diving all five dives a day, you’re going to spend more time topside than you will underwater.

The second level houses the Al Fresca Deck for dive briefings and the main salon for dining and socializing. These two separate areas allowed guests who wanted to social distance to dine outside at their own private table. Our trip was during a cold snap in February, so we loved staying inside in the main salon and making new friends.

The third level held the sundeck and bridge. Given the weather, there wasn’t a lot of sunning going on, but there were a couple of cocktail parties. Plus, this large deck gave everybody enough space to get their gear completely dry before packing it up for home at the end of the trip.
