Ocean Hunter III

Ocean Hunter III

Ocean Hunter III is a 96 foot liveaboard that offers 7 and 10 night trips around Palau

Each of the 8 cabins has a private bath and air conditioning and the boat can accommodate up to 16 guests. Ocean Hunter III features a comfortable salon equipped with a television, entertainment system and a spacious dining area. There are two Jacuzzis available on the sun deck for guests to relax in. State of the art facilities for the professional underwater photographer including a large work area and over 60 electrical outlets are available onboard. 

The dives will explore Palau’s unspoiled reefs, caves, and wrecks teeming with impressive marine life. Because of the small guest capacity, Ocean Hunter III works with divers to develop custom dive itineraries and offers personal attention.
