Cat Ppalu


Escape aboard on your private sailing liveaboard diving the Bahamas. Up to 19 dives in the week, explore the islands and swim with pigs. Cat Ppalu offers a full intimate experience for all 12 passengers.

The sailing Liveaboard charter catamaran Cat Ppalu, offers scuba diving, snorkeling, sailing and adventure cruises. It accommodates 12 passengers in 6 cabins. Each week we set sail from Nassau, Bahamas to the Northern Exumas on the 65' sailing dive charter catamaran, Cat Ppalu. This is the ultimate vacation escape aboard your own private sailing dive liveaboard. It is your charter so you choose what you want to do. You can make up to 19 dives during the week or choose to just explore the islands, visiting the swimming pigs, Staniel Cay or the Exumas Land & Sea Park.

No crowds, no set itineraries, nothing to do but sit back, relax and choose from an incredible variety of activities: scuba diving, sailing, cruising, snorkeling, kayaking, bird watching and of course, island exploring. Consider the Cat Ppalu a floating bed and breakfast; your private floating hotel, with captain and crew at your service. Our crewed charters handle all of the details. With an open bar and all beverages, meals, water sports and diving included in the price, it’s comparable to a luxury cruise or resort vacation, only the service is much more personal on our charter liveaboard sailboat, the Cat Ppalu.

The Cat Ppalu can take you to scuba dive remote walls, wrecks, high speed drift dives like the Washing Machine, coral reefs and dive with sharks. You can snorkel most of the sites in the Exumas as well and enjoy the gin clear waters of the Central Bahamas.

A large part of the Northern Exumas is a part of the Exumas Land & Sea Park where everything is protected, so you will see abundant sea life including many large groupers. You can visit the Exumas Land & Sea Park headquarters at Warderick Wells and hike the nature trails.

Kayak the cays and inlets, explore the many uninhabited beaches, and even big game fish from our sailboat, the Cat Ppalu! Cat Ppalu is also available as a liveaboard vacation for special interest groups: ecotourism groups, adventurers, kayakers, and corporate incentive travelers as well as educational tours, scouts and research trips.
