Description

Experience your next diving adventure in the Maldives with MV Carpe Vita Explorer

The M/V Carpe Vita Explorer, began service in February 2011 as a very luxurious addition to the Explorer Ventures Fleet. This 20-passenger, 125-foot wooden-hull safari yacht, along with her 60-foot custom matching dhoni (dive tender), was built by one of the Maldives most accomplished boat builders. It provides guests with an exceptional and luxurious yachting experience, large, hotel-style Staterooms, Jacuzzi and unmatched open-air comfort!

To ensure your Dive Safari Holiday becomes a memorable experience, every aspect of MV Carpe Vita Explorer's design, itinerary and menu have received detailed attention. The diving, the leisure activities, the luxury and comfort found aboard the MV Carpe Vita Explorer easily compare to those of any hotel on land.

What you can expect

The MV Carpe Vita Explorer is a beautiful Yacht, set to discover the fascinating Underwater World of the Maldives. The MV Carpe Vita Explorer's itineraries were arranged so the dive sites can be visited at the perfect time. Moreover, it differentiates itself from other liveaboards by providing the best in personalized accommodation, services and facilities.

The MV Carpe Vita Explorer has 3 types of cabins. VIP Suites on the Upper Deck, and 2 types of Stateroom on the Main and Lower Decks. The boat is equipped with air-conditioning. For entertainment and activities as well as great diving, the MV Carpe Vita Explorer offers karaoke, movies, audio-video entertainment and fish identification sessions.

Part of its philosophy is also that even when sailing the hidden corners of the Maldives, good food must not be forgotten

On the MV Carpe Vita Explorer evening meals and lunches usually consist of vegetables, rice, pasta, soup, chicken, beef or fish with occasional local specialties offered as additional options. Breakfast is the usual fare of eggs, beef bacon, pancakes, French toast, potatoes, cereal and fruits. If you have any dietary restrictions or requests, please indicate them on your application form.

Please note that specific brands of drinks, dressings and foods are often unavailable in the Maldives and that it can be very difficult for us to find low-fat, gluten-free or soy products, fresh fruit, shellfish and other items common elsewhere. Pork and pork products are not served aboard.

While we will do our best to accommodate your requests, please be realistic and consider bringing some of your own foods if the lack thereof may constitute a health risk. All soft drinks, packaged juices, filter coffee, tea and water are included.

Two glasses of beer or wine during the evening meal are included in your package price. Due to the difficulty of importing alcohol into the Maldives, additional beer or wine or freshly made juices or any hard liquor will be added to your onboard bill.

HOW TO GET THERE

  • Please refer to logistics section of each itinerary to find detailed info on how to get there.
