Aquariums & Caves or Sharks & Shipwreck? Our cruise routes make exploring the name of the game
When you’ve got an 11-cabin floating Five Star PADI Dive Centre at your disposal – Four Seasons Explorer – it would be rude not to show off the spoils of four Maldivian atolls across seven different days of diving!
But which cruise to choose? Opt for the 3-night ‘Northward Aquariums & Caves’ cruise to journey from Kuda Huraa to Landaa, via the coral ceilings of Fares Caves, stingray haven of Eboodhoo Cove, and colourful Muthaafushi Thila. Go for the 4-night ‘Southward Sharks & Shipwreck’ cruise to travel from Landaa to Kuda Huraa via the camera-happy sharks of Rasdhoo Madivaru, whale shark haven of Maamigili Beyru, and Machafushi Wreck. Or choose the 7-night ‘See-it-all Circuit’ cruise to combine the two and much more.
Schedules are fluid to capture the best of the Maldives at any moment. What marine adventurer wouldn’t abort a schedule to swim with a mid-ocean group of pilot whales or snorkel with a passing whale shark?
And the land-based activities are just as enticing: sandbank BBQs spent sunbathing or star-gazing; spa sessions; water sports; cooking classes; yoga; Maldivian afternoon tea with remote local communities… the list goes on.
