Schedule MV Undersea Hunter - Cocos Island / Costa Rica

MV Undersea Hunter

Research Vessel

The research vessel Undersea Hunter was built in Florida in 1968 for Perry Oceanographic and was used for twenty years as a submarine support vessel. Working primarily in the Bahamas and the Caribbean, she completed hundreds of research and photographic missions including the Deep Rover Project with Dr. Sylvia Earle. Undersea Hunter`s closest brush with fame - so far - was her participation as support vessel for the James Bond movie "License to Kill." The actual owner bought the Undersea Hunter in June, 1990, and spent five months refurbishing her from stem to stern. Already a capable and well-proven research vessel, she was modified to include six new cabins, built with conveniences that surpass all expectations, to accommodate 14 passengers. With fuel capacity of 40 tons and water tankage of 26 tons, her blue water capability is almost unlimited.

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.
