Ocean Hunter III is a long-established, steel-hulled Palau liveaboard operating 7 and 10 night cruises around the islands of Palau, which include a night dive every night. Ideal for photographers, technical scuba divers and pure pleasure-seekers alike, this well-equipped liveaboard is a popular choice.

Up to 16 divers can be accommodated in 8 ensuite cabins on this 29 m motor vessel. The main deck is where the principal relaxation zones are. There is an air-conditioned restaurant and lounge area where you can enjoy the internet, TV, DVD and music system while sipping a coffee from the espresso machine. If you prefer to spend your time in the fresh air, you can relax on the sun deck either in the shade or under the sun or even while soaking in the Jacuzzi.

The facilities on board are what makes the Ocean Hunter III liveaboard stand out from the crowd. In addition to nitrox there is also trimix and rebreather support. There is a large working area for photographers with various electrical outlets and extra storage space. There is also an enclosed lab for film production, 3 camera tables on the dive deck and powerful computers for editing and CD burning.

Added quality comes from the long-established crew of the Ocean Hunter III who have a reputation for a high level of personal service and safety. The dive guides know the sites very well and insist on all divers using a safety sausage. They also allow you the freedom to enjoy your bottom time for as long as you wish. Ocean Hunter III is that rare type of boat, suitable for everyone from beginners to hardcore photographers, indeed for anyone seeking an unforgettable Palau liveaboard experience.
