Brand new in August 2019, Explorer Ventures, in partnership with Emperor Maldives, launched the state-of-the-art liveaboard MV Emperor Explorer in the Maldives. Offering contemporary and spacious accommodation, she wows with the excellent service for which both Fleets are known. At 42m (138 feet), she has four decks with three levels easily accommodating 26 guests in 13 well-appointed ensuite cabins, all with air-conditioning. The upper deck has two suites with a king bed and two cabins with 2 twin beds. The main deck carries two suites with king & twin beds. The lower deck contains five cabins with queen & twin beds and two cabins with a queen bed.

In addition, MV Emperor Explorer provides a spacious dive deck, many relaxation areas, on-deck massage services, and complimentary glass of wine with dinner – she’s the model of lavish liveaboards.

The MV Emperor Explorer will offer up to 22 dives a week (maximum 4 dives a day) from a large dhoni (tender). Four experienced dive guides will provide premium and intimate service, and all certified divers will receive FREE Nitrox!

Scuba diving in the Maldives is among the world’s best – hard and soft corals, swim-throughs, and myriad pelagics. Particularly, the Maldives’ waters support the world’s largest known population of reef manta rays, and whale sharks are also seen year-round. Making it a dream destination for divers from all over the world.

The Maldives is also known for unique underwater topography encompassing outer and inner reefs, small coral pinnacles known as thilas, caverns and walls. Divers will experience many awe-inspiring moments with life underwater ranging from the largest living fish species, the whale shark, to beautifully colored flatworms, anemones, turtles and copious amounts of reef fish.

With hundreds of dive sites spread over numerous atolls, liveaboard diving in the Maldives has something to please even the most discerning and well-traveled divers. Abundant, vibrant, and prolific sites make for stunning photographs and videographers. In addition to the bucket-list central atoll itineraries, this large, comfortable vessel offers specialty itineraries that feature remote atolls, exhilarating channel diving and the chance to see elusive thresher sharks!

Scuba diving in the Maldives is outstanding year-round, and temperatures vary only slightly. Being located on the the equatorial belt, severe storms are rare, however, there are two distinct monsoon seasons. Our specially designed central atoll itineraries cruise between the East and West sides of the islands during the Southwest monsoon season (May-October), and the Northeast monsoon season (November-April). Both timeframes possess uniquely different characteristics that can greatly influence what you see, and how you dive. Regardless of which itinerary you choose, both, and the four daily dives, will convince you that the Maldives’ reputation as a premier diving destination is well merited. It is little wonder why divers return home basking in amazement from the beauty in the Maldives.
