Boat specifications

Modern, contemporary features

The Emperor Explorer was built in 2019, condensing an incredible amount of knowledge gathered through the years on the field by Emperor Divers into one efficient, beautiful safari vessel. The yacht features four decks, spacious common areas, an elegant saloon and restaurant, as well as a shaded sundeck equipped with comfortable bean bags and sun chairs. The Emperor Explorer is outfitted with a broad aft-platform for easy-access to the ocean, and a camera station with dedicated rinsing water, an air-gun, and power-plugs.

Several accommodations to choose from

The Emperor Explorer can accommodate up to 26 guests in 13 modern cabins of different categories. Opt for the standard double/twin cabins with a double bed and a single bed located on the lower deck, or add luxury to your diving safari by choosing one of the yacht’s suites located on the main and upper decks, with large windows on the Maldivian Atolls. All of the cabins of the Explorer feature private bathrooms, individual air conditioning, a bathroom and deck towels, a media player, and regular housekeeping service during the cruise.

Spa on the main deck

Should the diving safari life become too hectic, you can always relax by taking part in some of the Emperor Explorer’s side activities. Relax on the beach while visiting an island, enjoy some freshly caught fish under a starry sky during an island barbecue, or de-stress with one of the onboard spa’s massages and treatments delivered in the cool Maldivian breeze on the main deck. Or grab your fins, mask, and snorkel and explore the shallow lagoons if you cannot live outside of the water.

Al fresco dining

One of the pleasures of cruising onboard Emperor Explorer is the fine dining. The food, prepared by chefs with the utmost care using fresh, locally sourced ingredients, is served in the restaurant for an elegant meal, or al fresco - in the exterior dining area - for more informal occasions right next to the lagoons’ breathtaking colours. The full-board package includes water, coffee, and tea. Refreshing cocktails, soft drinks, beer, and other alcoholic beverages are available at the onboard licensed bar. As a bonus, your evening’s glass of wine is on the house.

Diving with the Emperor Explorer

Nitrox-inclusive diving package

The Emperor Explorer includes free Nitrox refills in your cruise package so you can make the most of your week of diving. Nitrox - a gas blend used in recreational and technical diving - allows you to spend more time at depth and to dive several times in the same day without worrying of exceeding the non-decompression limits, and to reduce the time you have to spend on the surface in between dives. In other words, having your tanks filled with Nitrox adds value to the cruise by letting you spend more time scuba diving.

Four guides onboard

The Emperor Explorer has four diving guides on board ready to accommodate the needs of 26 guests. If you’re an experienced diver travelling to the Maldives for the first time, do not skip the detailed briefings of the dives, and follow your guide to make the most of the experience. If you are a beginner, a cruise with the Emperor Explorer allows you to sign up for training with a professional instructor. Emperor Explorer’s guides are skilled professionals with in-depth knowledge of the Maldivian reef systems and their inhabitants.

Northern, Southern, and Central Atolls

The Emperor Explorer’s itineraries cover the central Maldivian atolls, the centre-north, and the wild southern atolls, for an unforgettable safari with the sharks of the Maldives. The Emperor Explorer sails out from Malé and other selected ports of the Maldivian atolls for seven or ten days with three or more dives per day.

Snorkelers welcome

The Emperor Explorer welcomes snorkelers and non-divers, in addition to beginner and experienced divers familiar with currents and drift diving. Embark on the Emperor Explorer with nothing more than your fins, mask, snorkel, and a wetsuit for the snorkelling adventure of a lifetime as you swim with manta rays and whale sharks in the warm Maldivian waters. The Emperor Explorer rewards adventurous snorkelers joining its cruises with a $50 voucher to spend while on board on many of the yacht’s services.
