Goodbye Undersea Hunter, Hello Nautilus Undersea

from the August, 2016 issue of Undercurrent   Subscribe Now

After 26 years of active service in Costa Rica, the Undersea Hunter is joining the Nautilus fleet to run diving expeditions to Socorro and the Mexican Revillagigedos. She's been renamed Nautilus Undersea.

The Undersea Hunter was the first vessel in a fleet that includes Seahunter and Argo. She was purchased by Avi Kapfler and his business partner, Yosi, in 1990 and became a firm favorite with professional filmmakers like Howard and Michelle Hall, Marty Snyderman and the IMAX crew, as well as with many loyal return customers.

She made around 450 trips to Cocos alone, along with many special expeditions to French Polynesia, and passed through the Panama Canal in the Caribbean. The Undersea Hunter was a huge upgrade in liveaboard specifications at the time and was ideally suited to the sometimes arduous 350-mile journey out to Cocos from Punta Arenas on the Costa Rican mainland. Before she was brought to Costa Rica, she'd taken an active part in a James Bond movie and provided submersible support to some of Dr. Sylvia Earle's deep-sea missions.
