The Sea Hunter is a modern, dedicated dive cruiser specifically built for long-range dive expeditions to destinations like the world renowned Cocos Island.

The MV Sea Hunter operates 10 and 12 day liveaboard trips to the remote Cocos Island throughout the year. The custom built boat is completely air-conditioned with modern facilities featuring ten en-suite cabins accommodating a total of 20 passengers (six double and two triple occupancy). Photographers are well catered for and the study provides a quiet area to edit images and videos during your trip. Dive facilities are extremely well designed with individual gear storage, private camera/strobe storage shelves including individual charge points (110 & 220 volt AC power). A superbly comfortable, and spacious vessel with everything a serious diver could wish for. She is a rare hybrid that combines the large working platform and powerful machinery of a functional work boat, with the comfortable and functional interior of a modern luxury yacht – an extremely robust and stable boat.

Up to four dives operate daily, all from the custom built skiffs. Due to the remoteness and difficulty of some sites, divers are required to be deep and night diver trained with a minimum of 25 hours of logged dives. The boat is equipped with 12 litre tanks (Yoke) and Nitrox is complimentary for qualified divers.

Consistently voted for in the top ten 'must dive' destinations, Cocos Island is on most experienced diver's wish list. Water temperature is 26 – 29C year round and most of the action is found from 18-40 metres. The biodiversity of the marine life here is mesmerising. Expect white-tip reef sharks, schooling hammerheads, dolphin, mantas, marbled rays, sailfish, large schools of pelagic fish, turtles and the occasional whale shark. The water is home to at least 27 endemic fish species and the small rocky outcrop of land mass is home to numerous bird and plant species, some of which are endemic.
