The Maldives Explorer is a luxury dive liveaboard offering trips in the Maldivian Islands.
The Maldives Explorer is a luxury yacht that started operations in 2016. This yacht is very spacious with its 33.5 meters long and 10.5 meters wide.
The Maldives Explorer has 4 decks and can accommodate 16 people in 7 spacious guest rooms with comfort.
On the main deck, you will find a bar, a kitchen, both indoor and outdoor dinning areas, and a lounge area with a TV, music and WiFi.
On the upper deck is the bridge, the captain’s cabin and an outdoor deck with lounge chairs.
Finally, you will find a large sundeck (with and without shade) with comfortable sun loungers at the top deck. If you are looking for a little bit of privacy, a quiet corner to relax is never far away.
The Maldives Explorer is always accompanied by a spacious dive dhoni. This is the boat where all diving equipment, compressors and tanks are stored. During the filling of the tanks, the dhoni will move away from the mother ship, so people are not disturbed by the noise. The Maldives Explorer is just perfect for divers: space, comfort, experienced dive guides, good food and a pleasant service!
Please note that divers should be able to dive without help of an instructor. Our dive guides are there to guide, and for cases of emergency. Diving in the Maldives can be challenging due to strong currents. Therefore we advise a minimum dive experience of 40 logged dives and a minimum certification level CMAS, Padi Advanced or similar.
