Description

Scuba divers aboard Caribbean Explorer II plunge into warm, turquoise waters teeming with marine life

The Northeastern Caribbean is an intriguing area offering a blend of Dutch, British, French and Native cultures on some of the most scenic islands of the Caribbean. Saba Marine Park, St. Kitts and Nevis offer some of the most dramatic and breathtaking scuba diving experiences in the Caribbean.

The roomy and comfortable Caribbean Explorer II carries Dive Safari Adventurers in style to the 'off the beaten path' dive sites of the Caribbean. Saba, St. Kitts and St. Maarten have jaw dropping topography and are renowned for submerged offshore pinnacles, and a 5 square mile top of a dormant volcano towering 3,000 feet above the surface, surrounded by volcanic sand. The abundance and biodiversity of the marine life attests to the development of the Saba Marine Park in 1987, ensuring the Dive Safari of a lifetime.

(32m) aluminum built Caribbean Explorer II can comfortably accommodate 18 guests, in 9 en-suite cabins. The 8 English speaking, experienced and delightful crew members attend to the every need of guests on this dive vacation.

Take a drink with your buddy at the Wet Bar as you discuss the day’s diving. Shop at the onboard boutique or work on your photos at the photo/video lab below deck.
