Ocean Hunter III

Welcome to Ocean Hunter III, the latest and most luxurious addition to the Ocean Hunter Fleet in Palau. The boat represents 25 years of knowledge in the liveaboard industry and like most liveaboards was designed by divers, for divers. Ocean Hunter III sails the reefs of Palau, plus special trips to places such as Yap. As with all Ocean Hunter boats, you also have the knowledge and hospitality of a very experienced local crew.

Ocean Hunter III has 3 standard cabins, 3 deluxe cabins and 2 master staterooms all with private bath and a/c, and accommodates up to 16 guests with personal attention and plenty of space.

Ocean Hunter III offers powerful PC’s for movie and video editing with download, email and cd burning services.

Ocean Hunter owner and renowned chef and cookery writer Tova Harel has developed a delicious gourmet menu. She has not only had extensive experience as a chef, but specifically as a liveaboard chef! She cooked on the first Palau liveaboard for more than a year and went out on the Ocean Hunter for the first six months in Palau, closely analyzing the tastes of hungry divers after exiting the water and learning to cater to their every taste whim. As a dedicated diver herself who knows the importance of low-fat, fiber rich meals, Tova designed the menu with international cuisines such as Palauan, Italian, Mediterranean, French and Japanese (with fresh sashimi and sushi), and with a bit of her own style as well. She has worked extensively with the now cook, Arlee.

Ocean Hunter III will be travelling to all the usual spots and more!  Not only will you be diving all the world-famous spots of Palau such as the fabled Blue Corner, she'll take you further afield too. At the moment trips are planned to the Southwest Islands of Palau / Northern Papua New Guinea, Yap and the Outer Islands of Yap, The Northern Marianas and more.  These virtually undived reefs are in pristine condition and represent a once-in-a-lifetime diving experience.
