"The Exumas just give you so much opportunity on each dive to see different creatures and get very creative with your shots." - Lior Berman

All Star Liveaboards' 102-foot luxury catamaran was a clear winner when we wanted to take Ikelite customers, Ambassadors, and employees for a week of shooting underwater photos and video. When we go, we go big and bring a lot of gear with us. Very few dive liveaboards in the world offer this kind of comfort to spread out with housings, strobes, laptops, and even drones. 

Aqua Cat cruises the Exumas - 365 cays of paradise strewn across the waters between Nassau and Turks & Caicos. Aqua Cat installed a majority of the moorings throughout the Exumas. They know the healthiest reefs and they work hard to maintain them. 

Macro life is abundant with juvenile fish of all varieties. But we really love wide angle photography and the Exumas is full of beautiful coral formations and shallow walls populated with many types of sharks (Caribbean reef, tiger, hammerhead, silky, whitetip), rays (great southern, yellow, spotted eagle), and turtles (hawksbill, green, loggerhead).
