Schedule MV Sea Hunter - Cocos Island / Costa Rica

MV Sea Hunter

Comfort and convenience

The MV Sea Hunter is 115 feet of liveaboard comfort and convenience. It is a dedicated modern safari yacht that has been specifically built for long-range liveaboard cruises to destinations like Cocos Island and Malpelo. A former commercial dive support vessel, she was robustly built in 1980 to serve the oil industry in the Gulf of Mexico. In 1994 the actual owners purchased the MV Sea Hunter and through eight months of extensive renovation and refurbishing, turned the boat into the striking vessel she is today. A superbly comfortable, stable and spacious liveaboard vessel with everything a serious diver/photographer could wish. The MV Sea Hunter is now a rare hybrid that combines the large working platform and powerful machinery of a functional workboat, with the comfortable and functional interior of a modern luxury yacht. The boat and her crew specialize in providing excellence in service, food, and underwater excitement. She has eight cabins for a total capacity of 18 passengers, all with private bath. Dive facilities are extremely well designed with individual gear storage, private camera/strobe storage shelves including individual 110-volt AC power, and a private dryer for clients` towels and bathing suits. Her spacious layout and user friendliness has introduced divers, as well as underwater professionals (photographers & cinematographers) to an entirely new concept in liveaboards.

Due to the possible increase in the cost of oil, based on events in the past few years, the Undersea Hunter Group reserves the right to charge a US$200.00 per person Fuel Surcharge. This fee will be effective in the event that the diesel price published by Costa Rica's state owned refinery, RECOPE, reaches US$3.80 per gallon (US$1.00 per liter). We will verify the fuel index table 75 days prior to the departure date and if it is necessary to collect a fuel surcharge then we will inform the participants of the trip. The surcharge will be collected onboard. Please note: the national park fees are subject to change.
