MV Sea Hunter
Spacious and built for long distance diving expeditions, the MV Sea Hunter liveaboard journeys the crystal clear turquoise waters off of Cocos Island in Costa Rica. While diving in Cocos Island, scuba divers and snorkelers will experience some of the most remarkable dive sites on one of the area’s premier liveaboards.
The MV Sea Hunter is a luxurious 115-foot liveaboard that exudes leisure and style. The liveaboard vessel and crew specialize in providing guests with the very best in service, food, underwater adventure and wildlife encounters. Outfitted with eight cabins for a total capacity of 18 passengers, there are three double-bed staterooms, two triple-bed rooms and three doubles—all rooms accompanied with a private bath.
A damp climate coupled with an unspoiled oceanic topography gives Cocos Island an environment unique to anywhere else. On the MV Sea Hunter, you will adventure the vibrant hard coral reef gardens of Manuelita Inside, while parrotfish and white tip sharks dart around you. Another MV Sea Hunter excursion takes you to Dirty Rock, a formation of volcanic boulders and striking rock pinnacles. This site is renowned for hammerhead sharks, barberfish, hawksbill turtles and bottlenose dolphins.
Other sites include looming underwater arches, barren volcanic slopes, and an unforgettable deep dive in a submersible craft.
A favorite among scuba diving enthusiasts, Cocos Island has been declared a marine national park by the Costa Rican government, leaving the area mostly untouched and rich in local wildlife. While cruising with the MV Sea Hunter, you will explore the island’s 20 dive sites. Swim next to a swarm of fish, or encounter a friendly pair of dolphins or white tip sharks out on a dive, also many mobula rays.
Cocos Island is home to a diverse population of large marine species, including several shark and ray species, moray eels, squid and octopi.
Situated in the Pacific Ocean, Cocos Island lies off the coast of Costa Rica within the Golden Triangle. These remote islands have been declared a marine national park by the Costa Rica government and have been left primarily untouched.
