Comments Like most divers we met on Ocean Hunter III, we rate the crew one of the best anywhere. We have been on the Naia in Fiji, Ocean Rover in Thailand, Pindito in Indonesia, and Aggressor in Galapogos plus several other liveaboards. This is the best overall liveaboard. The food is very healthy and refined. Bread and soup are always hot.You can have European coffee shop quality coffee, Japanese restaurant quality sashimi, and the list goes on. The cabins are very clean and comfortable. AC works and is not noisy. The diving is like the food: varied and sophiscated. Overall the trip is like lisening to a masterpiece of music: well played with many variations. All elements come together: the owners run their business with true effort, the crew works really hard with sincerity, Palau is beatuiful above water, the diving in Palau is "rich" from both natural and human worlds. Last, not the least, based on our experience, Ocean Hunter III is among the best liveaboards in any water: we only dive with reputable operations. If you would like to have a trip leaving Palau with a big smile on your face and poetry in your heart, then choose Fish n Fins and Ocean Hunter III.
