M/V Sea Hunter is a stable and robust vessel previously used to serve the oil industry in Mexico. The redesigned boat combines powerful and functional machinery of a workboat with the comfort and modern interior of a liveaboard. She is a 36 metre boat built for long range expeditions to destinations like the Cocos Islands on 10 day itineraries. The 10 double cabins have en-suite bathrooms, drawers, shelves, circular porthole and air conditioning units offering space and comfort for 20 guests per charter. The 12 crew members aboard are friendly and experienced and will help with any questions or queries you may have.

The dining room has 5 booths allowing 4 guests to be sat in each making it a cozy and enjoyable area to enjoy the range of American and local cuisine that is served up every day. The large lounge has tables, chairs and long padded seating areas for you to relax, doze or catch up with your fellow guests. There is a variety of nightly entertainment including slide shows, DVD’s and games which also takes place in the lounge area. The study area has comfortable seating and a library that provides guests with a relaxed and private ambience and a personal computer is located here to allow you to view and edit your videos and photos.

The dive deck is large and well-designed offering individual gear storage, large cubbyhole with electric outlets and protected areas for cameras and lights. The huge extended dive platform is often used as a swim deck or launching platform for the kayaks between dives, it is also a popular gathering place for sightings of large fish including shark activity. The sun deck is furnished with loungers, tables and chairs and is the perfect place to catch some sun rays or watch the sunset. The chefs use this area to host their BBQ’s along with dancing under the stars; the large open area was actually designed specifically for landing a helicopter. The DeepSee is a custom built submarine carrying 1 pilot and 2 passengers to 450 metres offering a unique experience at dives sites like The Wall and Everest.
