Palau liveaboard Ocean Hunter I in Micronesia

This 20m steel-hulled motor vessel is small enough for direct access to most of the sites meaning easy diving from the dive platform. Ideal for a group or couples, the Ocean Hunter I has 3 cabins all with ensuite bathrooms: 2 with twin bunks and 1 with a King size bed and another single bed. The social focal point of the liveaboard boat is the air-conditioned saloon/dining area with TV, DVD and music system where you can enjoy movies, consult fish ID books and have a drink at the bar. It is more compact and cosy, than grand and expansive.

Photographers will love this boat since it aims to cater to their needs: There is a large working area with over 60 sockets, E-6 processing and extra storage space for equipment. Ocean Hunter I liveaboard charters are all about intimacy and service, when you exit the water staff will be on hand to help you out of your gear and give you a warm towel. There are also daily fresh fruit smoothies in the afternoon.

So if you are looking for an experience of Palau where your main focus is time underwater, scuba diving in small groups, photography, or personal attention, let the experienced crew of Ocean Hunter I look after you.
