UW Photo Comments The boat is a small boat, but they are totally geared to the underwater photographer. There base staff is very proffesional and helpful with some of there staff having worked with numerous trips with National Geographic on the boat. I called ahead and told the owner Tova that my camera was jammed. She was able to have someone meet me within a half hour. This gentleman took my camera away and had it back to me the next day with my film in tact

Comments My wife and I and two other couples that are our close friends were able to book the Ocean Hunter for one week. I have to say this was absolutely one of the best trips we have ever been on. From the incredible high octane diving to our superb hosts. This trip exceeded all our expectations. Having booked this trip many months before and it being so far away, we were justifiably anxious as to what to expect. Our crew and the ownners of the boat could not have been more hospitable. Even though the boat was smaller than most, no attention to detail was spared. From our warm showers and warm towels after every dive, to the great meals and snacks that came from the galley. They were even able to prepare a great birthday cake for my wife. The ability to have this boat with just my close friends and be able to get into dive sites where the larger boats neede to shuttle ther people into was just fantastic. The diving itself was superb, we all saw many species of fish we had never seen before. Each dive was exciting with the discovery of new species of fish to the adrenaline filled shark action to the many dancing Mantas in "German Channel"
