Comments Ocean Hunter III is a fantastic boat. Every aspect of it expresses the owners' and crew's strive for perfection. The crew is friendly, professional and extremely safety oriented. Kenneth the captain runs a tight ship and always witha smile and a joke!
Food, as prepared and served by Arlee and Roy, is unparalleled. Always fresh and tasty, served beautifully (usually buffet style breakfast, lunch and dinner) and with a broad smile. Snacks are abundant and abundantly available. It is near impossible to not gain a few...
The cabin are beautiful, maintained in perfect shape and kept extremely clean and fresh throughout the 7 days trip.
As for diving... This was our 3rd trip to Palau. While the weather wasn't perfect the diving was! Eddie is a great dive leader, who clearly loves what he does, and backed up by Malsol and Kenneth they led some wonderful dives for us. We didn't remember the coral as rich and diverse as they actually are, which was a lovely "surprise". In general, the diversity, the colors, the ... ocean, were all very welcoming.
We'll return to Palau and will happily dive the OHIII anytime!
