The Sea Hunter

Many have crowned the Sea Hunter as the paramount, purpose-built live aboard vessel, the gold standard for all other dive boats. She is a superbly stable and robust craft, formerly a commercial dive-support vessel, built to serve the oil industry in the Gulf of Mexico. Now redesigned and configured as a consummate hybrid, Sea Hunter combines the large platform, functionality and powerful machinery of a workboat with the comfortable and relaxed interior of a modern yacht. She is 115 feet of flexible capacity and convenience, a dedicated dive cruiser with a global reach, specifically designed and built for long-range expeditions to destinations like Cocos.
This spacious boat is everything that a serious diver or photographer could wish for - individual gear storage, private camera/strobe storage shelves with 110 & 220-volt AC power, zero-speed stabilizers and even a private washer & dryer for client's towels and bathing suits. Her roominess and user-friendliness has introduced adventure divers, as well as professional photographers and cinematographers, to an entirely new level of live-aboard facility.

Diving Facilities


Diver facilities are extremely well designed: private camera/strobe storage shelves with individual 110 volts AC power, individual gear storage, a private dryer for clients towels and bathing suits, etc.
The chase boats are superb, two 24' fiberglass cruisers. SEA HUNTER puts 9 or less divers in each chase boat.
This is a superbly comfortable, stable and spacious vessel, with everything a serious diver/photographer could wish for. While on board the Sea Hunter, you can also take advantage of the opportunity to become a certified nitrox and rebreather diver, which will both extend your bottom time, and allow you to get even closer to the marine life.

The Bridge


The bridge of the Sea Hunter is a fully equipped modern navigation and communication center. It hosts all the latest marine electronics to ensure a safe ocean voyage. It also includes a Satellite Telephone System. Our guests are welcome to visit the bridge at any time. Sit a while and chat with the captain and crew, see the sights or place international telephone calls.

Sun Deck


This 1000 square foot area is truly multi-use. Make yourself at home reading in a lounge chair, catching some rays or watching a sunset. Our chefs use this area for sumptuous BBQs with dancing under the stars. Its large open area has actually been designed specifically for landing a helicopter during special expeditions.

Study


This room has comfortable seating and a library that provides a relaxed and private ambience. The study has a TV, VCR, DVD and personal computer to allow guests to view and edit their video and digital photography. It also serves as an intimate classroom for our theoretical instructional courses.

The Dining Room


The dining room consists of five, 4-person booths arranged in two rows, cozy enough even to allow conversation between booths. The menu aboard is a soulful combination of American and local Costa Rican cuisine. Meals are varied, abundant and nutritionally well-balanced. There are fresh tropical fruits, salads, fish, chicken, beef, and much more, all prepared in a wide variety of ways. Our guests continually laud our chefs' creativity in turning out delicious and memorable meals at sea. Please let us know if you have any special dietary needs or requests.

The Lounge


The lounge is ample and comfortable with chairs and long, padded seating areas for sitting, reclining and even dozing off. Aside from the always fascinating socializing with your fellow adventurers, there is also a variety of nightly entertainment available aboard. This includes slide shows, DVDs, videos, games and more. Please feel free to bring along your own favorites. The refrigerator is constantly refreshed and brimming with soft drinks, beer and ice for your pleasure and something to munch on is always within reach.
