If you’re thinking about scuba diving the Caribbean, but you’d prefer a Caribbean catamaran liveaboard this article lists all these dive boats. The following four liveaboards are stable catamaran dive boats, in fact one is a trimaran too.

Caribbean catamaran scuba diving liveaboards:

  1. Aqua Cat Liveaboard: Bahamas motorboat catamaran.
  2. Cat Ppalu Liveaboard – Bahamas sailing catamaran.
  3. Cuan Law Trimaran: Virgin Islands dive Liveaboard.
  4. Phoenix Liveaboard – Bahamas sailing catamaran.

The top advantage of a catamaran or trimaran over a monohulled dive boat is stability. This is ideal if you don’t have the best sea legs and suffer a bit from sea sickness.

4. Phoenix Liveaboard – Bahamas sailing catamaran

The Phoenix catamaran liveaboard is a sailing catamaran for up to 30 divers wanting to explore the Bahamas. With space for up to eight guests across four cabins with aircon and private bathrooms.

Incredible experience. There was a good mix of dive sites (reefs, sharks, wrecks), with flexibility to see different ones, depending on weather conditions. The crew was very good at their job. The dive masters were clearly well trained, and knew the dive sites and local sea life in-and-out. The captain is also an excellent cook. We never had the same dish twice, and the food was all creative, and just what you need after a day of multiple dives. The crew were quite friendly, and made us feel at home during the whole trip. The catamaran is a great boat to dive from. It is spacious, provides a stable platform, and offers easy entry and exit from the water.” Recommended for: Very skilled and knowledgeable crew, world class dive sites, comfortable boat.
