Ocean Hunter III

dive Palau liveaboardsOcean Hunter III is the latest and most luxurious addition to the Ocean Hunter fleet in Palau. The boat represents 25 years of knowledge in the liveaboard industry and like all of Ocean Hunter liveaboards was designed by divers, for divers. Originally built and launched in 1978 as a research vessel by the Australian Institute of Maritime Science (AIMS), this 29 metre steel vessel underwent a complete refit and renovation and moved to her new home of Palau in 2008. Furthermore, Ocean Hunter III has been designed for professional underwater photography, TV and film production.

Ocean Hunter III dives the reefs of Palau year round offering 7 and 10 night departures, with the option for special charters to places such as Yap.
