Spa-ing, water sports, sashimi-making, island visits and more: Four Seasons Explorer isn’t just for divers

Have you castaway the idea of a Four Seasons Explorer adventure because diving doesn’t appeal? Read on! Four Seasons Explorer packs more into its 39m/128ft expanse than most people can imagine – complete with the endless waters and isolated islands of up to six atolls – depending on how many nights you cruise with us.

Yes, the boat is an impressively equipped floating PADI 5 Star Dive Centre that offers up to three dives a day in remote locations. But where the boat goes, so too do its water sports experts, spa therapist, marine biologist, chefs – and in fact its complete staff of 25 adventure-seeking crew, all ready to conjure up incredible experiences and limitless activities at a moment’s notice. 

Unwind in a bijoux spa just for you – on deck or a secluded sandbank. Expand your horizons visiting a remote island community for Maldivian afternoon tea. Castaway on a virgin island for a morning of soft-ball, snorkelling, exploring and beach picnics. Kayak, wakeboard, waterski, windsurf, or have fun bouncing over the waves on fun tubes with nothing in sight for miles. Learn the local art of handline fishing from our experienced crew or try your luck with bottom-line fishing from a traditional dhoni… then make your own sushi and sashimi with the Chef.

Indulge in a gourmet barbecue on an uninhabited sandbank followed by a stargazing session beneath the endless skies. Chill-out on snuggly sofas in the large air-conditioned lounge, or make the most of your empty ocean location and turn up the volume for an onboard boat party! On top of all of that, Tropicsurf surf charters and Manta Trust manta ray research expeditions offer two further thrilling options to non-diving water lovers.

With just 10 Staterooms and the Explorer Suite – complete with a wall of windows and private sunbathing deck – guest numbers are kept purposely low for an intimate experience. And for groups seeking exclusivity, private charter cruises offer all the flexibility in the world from bespoke entertainment to tailored menus for every meal.

A Sea State Motion Control System provides an exceptional sea-faring experience, while a draft of 1.9 metres means it can access locations that larger vessels cannot reach – adding to the sense of discovery that a Four Seasons Explorer cruise brings. All in all, it’s cruising, but not as you know it!
