[None]The Undersea Hunter is a well run operation from sched, trip planning
to the actual diving.  The trip out was better then expected, used scop
patch, the dive conditions ranged from calm and clear to 3-4 foot swells
when a storm blew in.  The crew is first class.  Cabins adequate, small
salon but not an issue.  The diving was fantastic.  Schools of hundreds of
scalloped hammerheads, many within 1 foot of us, plenty of Silky sharks,
especially liked to circle us on the safety stop, hundreds of reef sharks
and an exciting night dive with reef sharks and 5 very large silvertips and
a few white tips..  The other panga saw a whale shark but we did not.  One
bait ball.  Plenty of dolphin but swan away when we entered the water. 
Captain, dive masters, panga drivers all excellent.  Not a trip for the
inexperienced.  Go early and enjoy Costa Rica, we went white water rafting
and had a blast.  Stayed at the Marriott which was nice and close to the
airport.  Will definently return
