Comments Everything was perfect on the entire trip, thanks to Onno @ www.scubadiveasia.com and the wonderful crew (and boat)of the Sea Hunter.

Spent a week on land before the dive trip with a company www.valledoradotours.cr owned by Jorge Montero. Be sure to ask for his best guide/driver Edwin Brenes. It was truly a week in paradise, zip lines included!

Onno set up everything for us (we always use his services) and everything went off without a hitch!

The crew, the boat, the unbelievable amount of sharks and other critters blew everyone's mind! Perfection.

BTW: We encountered tons of hammerheads, Galapagos sharks, white tips, tigers, black tips.....never saw so many sharks--and up close and personal!

My wife and I have done around 20 liveaboards...this one RULES!!
