Comments This is our third trip to Cocos and the third with the Undersea Hunter Group. This time we opted for their luxury vessel, the Argo. It's a nice boat with good sized cabins, comfortable lounge, and pretty good food. But what keeps us going back is the comfort of the dive tenders, the top notch crew and of course the diving. All of these have remained consistent since our first visit to Cocos aboard the Sea Hunter in 2009. They continue to be the premier operator in Cocos. The Argo has the added distinction of having a submersible on board. A definite must on the bucket list!

Hammerheads on every dive, tiger sharks, eagle rays, whale sharks, hunting white tips at night....what more can we say? It's worth the 36 hour crossing!

Feel free to contact us if you have any specific questions.
