Carte Bahamas

les iles

Jump on board for a cruise around the 350 paradisical islands of the Exumas (map here) and Eleuthera. The Exumas have been a National Park since 1958. The rich underwater areas are inhabited by sharks, rays, turtles, and nurseries of all sorts, and the underwater landscapes are made up of coral reefs, sponges, mangroves, and a few wrecks.

The spectacular waters of the Exumas  have numerous famous sites: Angelfish Blue Hole, Mystery Cave, Crab Cay Crevasse, Amberjack Reef, and Cave Rock to name but a few.

The Exumas Land and Sea Park is often called an aquarium. The exceptional clarity and the bright colours of its waters allow visitors to see abundant life: sponges, corals, Sgt Majors, jacks, groupers, yellowtail snappers, rays turtles, stingrays, and sharks. There are walls, drop-offs, passes, fast drift dives and easy coral gardens. With more than 100 sites, there is plenty to keep the diver busy. Click here to see the most popular dive sites on a map.

Within the archipelago, there are almost 70 shark species. Caribbean reef sharks and nurse sharks are seen on numerous sites, notably at Amberjack Reef and a coupleof sites near Eleuthera where passive shark feeds occur. At Cave Rock Hammerheads are often seen. Bull sharks, Lemon sharks, Whale sharks and tiger sharks are occasionally sighted.

We work with four boats that visit the Exumas, offering a large variety of dives; shark feeding dives, blue holes, high speed drift dives, walls and shallow patch reefs. Each week they cruise from Nassau, Bahamas to the remote islands of the Exumas, and especially the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park

Aqua Cat 

Your adventure vacation is on the 102' catamaran Aqua Cat. This is the ultimate escape aboard your own private luxury yacht. Imagine sinking your toes into sugar sand, snorkeling or diving among the lemon sharks and stingrays, or hiking the trails of pirates and bootleggers of years gone by. No crowds, no set itineraries, nothing to do but sit back, relax and choose from an incredible variety of activities including scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, fishing, sunbathing, and island exploring. If you aren't a certified scuba diver, the Aqua Cat offers full certification scuba diving lessons during your adventure vacation. Aqua Cat offers top of the line high-quality rental scuba gear for those who require it. Photographers have plenty of space for their kit and dedicated rinse tanks. Aqua Cat enables you to scuba dive remote walls, wrecks, and coral reefs with sharks.

The new 102 ft liveaboard catamaran, Aqua Cat, offers luxury accommodations, a spacious main salon and 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 eleven passenger cabins are some of the largest of any liveaboard in the world. Some of the cabins can accommodate a 3rd or 4th passenger, so she can carry from 22 to 30 passengers.

Cabins 1,2,3 & 4 each have two twins. Each of these cabins can accommodate one or two additional passengers in fold down berths. This is great for a family or friends that would like to reduce their costs. Cabins 5,6,7 & 8 can be configured as either two twins or one king. Cabins 9 & 10 have one queen and one twin. Cabin 11 has two twins. This cabin has a skylight instead of windows.
