Ocean 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 the Ocean Hunter fleet, OH III was designed by divers, for divers. Ocean Hunter III will be diving the reefs of Palau, plus special trips to places such as Yap. As usual with the OH fleet, you also have the knowledge and hospitality of very experienced local crew. The ship has three standard cabins, three deluxe cabins and two master staterooms all with ensuite bathrooms and air conditioning. The ship accommodates 16 guests with personal attention. There is a large dining room and a comfortable salon with sofas and an entertainment center. The salon also contains an espresso machine. The ship also features a jacuzzi on the sun deck. The ship has been designed for the professional underwater photographer, and TV and film production, with a sizeable working area, 110, 220 and 415-volt outlets and extra storage space. Powerful desktop computers for movie and video editing are also available.
The ship cruises some of the best dive sites in Palau including Blue Hole, Blue Corner, New Drop Off, Big Drop Off, German Channel, Peleliu Wall & Cut, Peleliu Expressway, Ulong Channel, Siaes Tunnel, Iro, and Chandelier Cave, all are on the “must see” list. There are at least 30 additional reef sites and 8 wrecks to dive.
The ship’s crew uses their knowledge and experience to bring you to the right dive site at the right moment. Diving off the Ocean Hunter means you get personal attention, reefs without a crowd, easy entry into the water and a maximum bottom time. Instead of waiting for 25 other divers to surface or have them wait for you, you and your buddy can stay underwater as long as you like, without any pressure. Technical dives are supported. Nitrox, TRIMIX and Rebreathers are supported; Nitrox certification available onboard.

Dive Conditions

Palau has a tropical climate year-round with rain throughout the year, although the rains are heavier in the months of July to October which reduces the visibility to an average of 15m and can cause weather conditions that may interfere with diving.
It can be difficult to get reef sharks to come close to you while you are hooked in at Blue Corner. Unhooking and swimming down into or over the lip of the reef can get you closer to sharks, but you also risk the ire of other dive groups who think your bubbles will scare away the critters. It's best not to chase sharks. Instead, find a good spot where they can swim by you in the current. Night dives are often the best time to put on a macro lens, as a wide range of reclusive creatures emerge from the reef after dark.
Water Temperature ranges between 81-84 degrees Fahrenheit. Visibility usually Ranges from 50 - 150+ feet. During the dry season, the visibility is often in excess of 100 feet.
