Sea Hunter description

Sea Hunter basic informations

Our goal is to introduce you to varied and exciting dives. Generally, we have two dives scheduled for the morning, 8 AM and 11 AM and another dive after lunch, around 2.30 PM. During the trip it will also be possible to do at least three night dives.

This schedule can vary depending on events, circumstances and opportunities that may present themselves. Our motto is never turn your back on a magnificent bait-ball, which can appear at almost anytime.

Once a thorough briefing from our dive-masters has been given onboard the mothership, our guests jump onto their respective skiffs and zip out to the chosen sites. Each support boat accommodates up to nine divers plus driver and dive-master, who always dives with the group.

After a short ride, each of the skiffs will reach a different dive site that is alternated on the following dive, allowing the two groups to dive the same areas but at different times of the day.

On the way to or from the planned dive sites it is very common for our skiff drivers to seek out the best spots for memorable surface experiences. To watch dolphins, mantas, whales, a promising bait-ball or just cruse up to some of the islands most beautiful attractions, which are only reachable by small skiff.

Between dives or when time permits, guests are welcome use the sea kayaks, go for a swim, snorkel around the boat, or just chill-out and watch movies.

For over two decades our commitment has been to make your dive expedition or underwater project one of the most successful, unique and rewarding experiences of your life.

Many have crowned our sea hunter as the paramount, purpose-built live aboard vessel, the gold standard for all other dive boats. she is a superbly stable and robust craft, formerly a commercial dive-support vessel, built to serve the oil industry in the gulf of mexico.

Now redesigned and configured as a consummate hybrid, sea hunter combines the large platform, functionality and powerful machinery of a workboat with the comfortable and relaxed interior of a modern yacht. she is 115 feet of flexible capacity and convenience, a dedicated dive cruiser with a global reach, specifically designed and built for long-range expeditions to destinations like cocos and malpalo islands.

we purchased the sea hunter in 1994 and through eight months of extensive redesign and renovation, turned the boat into the striking vessel she is today. sea hunter has 10 guest cabins with private baths, furnishing live-aboard comfort for up to 20 passengers.

this spacious boat is everything that a serious diver or photographer could wish for - individual gear storage, private camera/strobe storage shelves with 110 & 220-volt ac power, zero-speed stabilizers and even a private washer & dryer for client’s towels and bathing suits. her roominess and user-friendliness has introduced adventure divers, as well as professional photographers and cinematographers, to an entirely new level of live-aboard facility.

    Also known as "The Reef", this is the part of the island where the walls exhibit the least amount of vertical descent. For that reason corals have been able to take advantage of the area creating large, regular terraces. This is due to the fact that here the coral receives a greater amount of light, which is so crucial for their growth. Numerous species of reef fish are thus called to pray at this altar. Snappers, sea bass, surgeons, king angels, damselfish, Moorish idols, eels, trumpet fish and goatfish can all be found here. Schools of barracudas and jacks are also common with hammerheads seen on occasion.

    This phenomenon occurs when the little bait fish, upon being hunted, seek protection by forming a furiously spinning silvery ball. This is an attempt of a small species to intimidate and confuse a predator. In a bait ball you can find different bait fish and different hunters. Sometimes the bait fish will be trapped between the surface and the hunters below. This is when the boobies and frigate birds will join the feast. These special events can happen anywhere and at anytime.
