The newest addition to the Explorer Ventures liveaboard fleet is The "MV Carpe Novo Explorer", will be cruising the incredible Maldives beginning service in March 2016! This new modern vessel, sister ship of Carpe Vita Explorer and Carpe Diem, will expand the Maldives itinerary offerings to include longer trips to more remote areas. This new 22-passenger, 140-foot wooden-hull safari yacht, along with her 65-foot custom matching dhoni (dive tender), was built by one of the Maldives most accomplished boat builders.

The "MV Carpe Vita Explorer", is a gorgeous 125 ft. custom built motor yacht began operating in the must-dive republic of the Maldives in February 2011. This deluxe liveaboard dive boat comes complete with a matching 61 ft. dhoni dive tender and accommodates up to 20 divers in 10 large hotel style staterooms. The Carpe Vita Explorer operates year round and offers 7 and 10 night itineraries based on the seasons, currents and pelagic migration patterns.

Dive the Galapagos in comfort on the "MV Humboldt Explorer", built in Ecuador in 2009 specifically for diving Galapagos. She is a 106 foot, 2 level steel mono-hull vessel that was built for stability on the long crossings to Darwin and Wolf Islands. The vessel offers 6 lower and 2 upper staterooms, each with large windows, private baths and full-size twin beds that can be converted to queen beds. The enchanted islands of the Galapagos provide high-voltage diving in an area visited by a lucky few. The diving is challenging, but the rewards are great – schooling hammerheads, Galapagos sharks, whale sharks, mantas and much much more.

The "Caribbean Explorer II" carries 18 passengers in nine air-conditioned double staterooms. Each room has a private, lavatory, shower and toilet. 7 day itineraries include up to 5 dives a day, 3 meals/day plus snacks, and all drinks. Departing every other week from St. Kitts or St. Maarten, this “forts to frog fish” itinerary combines pristine diving and wonderful optional island tours. Dive the pinnacles of Saba, and the finger reefs and drop offs of St. Kitts.
