Boat Description

Built in 2019, the 42 metre MV Emperor Explorer is a contemporary and spacious liveaboard perfect for exploring the Maldivian waters. Comfortably holding 26 guests there are 13 luxury cabins to choose from, including 2 king-size doubles, 2 doubles, 2 twin, and 7 double cabins with an additional single bed. Enjoy open-air dining on the main deck while onboard chefs serve up western and local cuisine and a free glass of wine before heading to the onboard spa. After diving, a beach bbq is held one evening where guests can dig their toes into the sand and gaze up at the stars. During 7 or 10 nights, divers can experience 'The Best of Maldives' while sailing across the Male and Ari atolls. Awaiting are channels, drifts, pinnacles, mantas and whale shark! In January to March experience drift dives and hammerheads on 'South Central' while 'Northern Hi-Lights' offers abundant macro life at the Northern atolls. Cave diving, drifts, and incredible pinnacles can be expected.
