Comments Third trip to Coco's Island on the Undersea Hunter. A very good boat with a crew to match. All divers must be Nitrox certified, if not must take class on the way out from the Mainland. Most dives are 100 feet or more and Nitro is a safety precaution. All dives are from hard hulled pang's, your BC and tank stay on the small boat and the tanks are filled on the small boats, with easy access once the dive is done. Safety is most important, all dives were required to carry a sausage, mirror and a electronic beacon. The dive briefing are detailed and the dive masters know the territory. I have been on many live boards all over the world and I have not been on a better boat. A great preview is to watch a short film "Shark Island" shot at Coco's Island with the Undersea Hunter as their base. I plan to return in 2017.
