We did a liveaboard with Sea Hunter to Cocos island early Dec.
We booked 2 years in advance with a group from Thailand ... basically chartered the boat.
The services and support before our arrival has been great ... providing us info from recommended hotels in Costa Rica, visa information, land travel and even other tours. They have been superb.
Our group stayed at one hotel where they picked us up late morning the day we depart. The land travel from San Jose to Puntarenas pier is about 1.5hrs. However, they break up the journey with a lunch stop and provide some historical information of Costa Rica and places along the way.
Upon boarding the boat ... the dive director gave a very nice and informal introduction to the boat and crew and about the trip.
All the staff were very professional, helpful, friendly ... throughout the whole 10days trip. They always there when you needed something and always have a smile on their face. I have been to many liveaboards and I have to say the service and professionalism of this crew is definitely up there amongst the very best. This makes the trip much more pleasant and enjoyable.
The boat itself was decent but not one of the top range of liveaboards we have experienced. However, the room and bathroom, all in working order and kept clean and tidy all throughout the trip. The saloon is equipped with tv and media system which contains countless movies/series ... to help occupy the travel time from the pier to Cocos island.
The diving deck is well organised and spacious and dive operation was again well planned/organised and professional.
We really did have a great trip and the trip was made special by the crew (of course diving was awesome as expected).
