The Ocean Hunter III has eight cabins for 16 passengers. Guests choose between two standard cabins, four deluxe cabins and two master suites on the upper deck. All cabins have their own bathroom facilities and are air-conditioned.

The superb meals are served in the dining area which includes an expresso machine and a minibar. Owner and skilled cook Tova lays great emphasis on high quality, versatile cuisine and creates tasty tidbits and delicacies in the European and Japanese traditions as well as local dishes in Palau style. After dinner feel free to relax in the cosy lounge with flatscreen TV, DVDs, and a small library.

The Ocean Hunter III perfectly meets the needs of divers. The diving platform provides spacious areas for your diving equipment and camera accessories. Between dives guests enjoy sunbathing on the shaded sun deck or a bath in one of the two Jacuzzis to relax stiff muscles.
