All Star Liveaboards

The best way to dive the Bahamas, British Virgin Islands & Indonesia!


Our company has offered scuba diving liveaboards for over 38 years and we’ve grown along the way.  From our one star “camping at sea” adventure cruises on Blackbeard’s Cruises,  to our 5 star luxury scuba diving liveaboard, Aqua Cat (Bahamas).  Recently we have added 2 new luxury liveboards the Cuan Law (BVI) and Aurora (Indonesia – Raja Ampat, Komodo and the Forgotten Islands). We also have the 3 star 12 passenger crewed dive charter catamaran Cat Ppalu in the Bahamas.  It offers private charters for families and friends who want to go diving and exploring the remote islands of the Exumas.  With very different experiences offered on each of our vessels, folks didn’t make the connection.

All Star Liveaboards was created to tie them all together with a brand new look!  We still have the same owners Bruce & Peggy Purdy and office staff Beth, Judy, Barbara & Kevin.

While the mission of each crew is to provide unrivaled customer service, each liveaboard offers a unique experience. Much like dining and hotel ratings, we use the stars to rate the accommodations. From 1 star camping to 5 star luxury, we have something for everyone!  You just choose how you live while you dive the most pristine waters of the Caribbean or Indonesia!
