Comments This is our 3rd trip aboard the Ocean Hunter. Can't say enough good things as the core crew of Ken (Captain), Arlee (Chef) and Eddie (Dive Guide) have been on all cruises. The dive staff have changed some but talent aboard the boat is bar none the best.
Great meals, great dives, and great accommodations.
We planned our "trip of a lifetime" in 2007 and who would have thought we are planning our 4th trip.
The wildlife is amazing - sharks become just another fish after the first day. The German Channel dive was a hit more than once as we spent a 30 minute safety stop with 4 mantas that continuously played with us.
If you are new to liveaboards and want to try a smaller one - go for it. Tova and Navot the owners have a great land based set of diving as well as 2 boats to live on. you choose
