Scheduled, private charter available
The Bahamas is both the spiritual and physical home of All Star Liveaboards, having started operating out of Bimini over 40 years ago with a single vessel. All Star Liveaboards’ all-star team believe strongly that scuba diving travel needs to be within reach of the next generation of divers, and their fleet now features four vessels, covering three distinct price-points, from budget to luxury. They even offer a crewed charter catamaran option that can be customised to accommodate divers and non-divers. Throughout the years of growth, one constant has always remained. Every member of the All Star Liveaboards’ dive management family is a passionate scuba diver and understands the unique needs of the industry and its customers.
Aqua Cat offers up to 26 dives on each seven-night all-inclusive trip exploring the Exuma Cays - and weather permitting, Eleuthera too! Itineraries are designed to give guests the greatest variety of Caribbean diving possible, from reefs, wrecks, and walls, to blue holes and passive shark feeding dives. The vessel’s expansive dive deck and accompanying tender provide maximum comfort during each day of diving, and are guaranteed to satisfy even the most discerning of guests. And, the award-winning crew will go above and beyond to help accommodate your needs, be it a little extra attention underwater, or extra space for sidemount set-ups or oxygen cylinders for rebreathers.
Onboard All Star Aqua Cat
The 31-metre Aqua Cat was specifically designed with scuba divers and adventure travellers in mind, boasting 11 comfortable main deck cabins with a range of sleeping configurations. Each all-inclusive voyage aboard Aqua Cat includes three freshly-prepared meals a day, featuring a mix of both American and Bahamian cuisine. The onboard bar opens with a happy-hour in the afternoon, for those who aren’t doing a night dive, and serves wine, cocktails, rum drinks and local craft beer on tap. On the main deck, you’ll find a spacious dining and lounge area, complete with cushioned sofas, and an expansive alfresco desk. From the main deck, guests can head upstairs to the sun deck which comes furnished with loungers for maximum relaxation.
Diving from All Star Aqua Cat

Aqua Cat’s 900-sq. ft. dive deck provides plenty of individual space for every diver, while a convenient camera table, charging station, and showers ensure hassle-free diving for all.
