Boat specifications

A groundbreaking catamaran

The Four Seasons Explorer is a motorized catamaran, an unconventional but practical vessel. Structurally, its broad width provides an ample base for apartment-sized cabins, superb common areas, and modern furnishings. Thanks to its double-hull, the Explorer is more stable and has a lower draft, allowing it to sail to secluded islands, reefs, and sandy banks so that guests can enjoy the most authentic Maldivian seascapes.

The Staterooms

These 20m2 mini-apartments located on the Explorer's main deck feature all the comfort and elegance you would expect from a state-of-the-art luxury resort. The staterooms are luminous, fresh, and integrated for connectivity with various technological devices. Each stateroom features individual air conditioning and a flatscreen TV, a full-size bathroom with bathtub and shower, large windows, comfortable beds with down duvets and pillows, and a private refrigerated bar.

The Explorer Suite

The Explorer Suite is a picture-perfect example of the ultimate liveaboard diving cabin. The 45m2 Suite, located right at the front of the second upper deck, boasts teak furniture, a stunning panoramic window wall to admire the Maldivian atolls, and the Four Seasons’ signature ultra-comfortable bed – this is in addition to all the comforts of the standard staterooms.

Culinary experience

The Explorer’s onboard chefs masterfully combine the freshest locally sourced ingredients to deliver a unique, top-level culinary experience personalized to your specific tastes. Delicious a-la-carte and buffet specialties are served in the elegant restaurant or al fresco on the upper deck, or on an enchanted beach accompanied by an excellent selection of refreshing beverages. Snacks and fresh fruits delivered right to the room are complimentary in the cruise package.

Extra activities

The Explorer proposes a selection of complimentary outdoor activities to spend entertaining times in between dives. Visit secluded islands, ride the waves on a wakeboard or a windsurf, go kayaking and fishing, then relax on a white-sand beach or get a massage by one of the skilled onboard therapists.

Diving with Four Seasons Explorer

Split itinerary in the central atolls

The Four Seasons Explorer cruises around the central atolls, home to some of the Maldives’ most famous dive sites. Set sail to Ari, Baa, and Rasdhoo from Malé for a diving adventure with whale sharks, manta rays, and many other endemic species with the seven-night itinerary, or combine your cruise with a stay in one of Four Seasons’ exclusive island resorts by embarking on a split-itinerary of three or four nights.

PADI 5-star diving school

The Explorer is a PADI 5-star diving facility, a status granted only to the professional operations respecting the highest standards of diving education and safety. Diving takes place in small groups of six guests and one guide. In addition, all of the top-of-the-line equipment and compressors are in perfect condition and the instructors are highly qualified and capable of teaching a variety of courses - from the fundamental AOWD to many engaging specialties, such as Nitrox and Peak-Performance buoyancy.

Resident marine biologist

The Maldivian reefs are one of nature’s best displays of beauty, complexity, and balance of the marine ecosystems. Here, corals have grown throughout the ages into massive formations, called atolls, and became home of thousands of different marine species, from the tiny nudibranchs to the gigantic whale sharks. Explorer cruises feature talks and activities conducted by a resident marine biologist; a great way to increase your knowledge of the life that lives below the surface of the ocean.

Diving equipment included

Travel light thanks to the Four Seasons Explorer’s “equipment-included” formula. Not only you can keep your luggage weight under control and have more space for your personal belongings by bringing only minimal diving gear, the Explorer provides divers with high-quality diving gear manufactured by the best brands, such as Scubapro BCDs and regulators, and Cressi fins.
