New dive liveaboard MV Emperor Explorer sets sail in Maldives
A new liveaboard dive boat, the MV Emperor Explorer, has made its debut in Maldives.
The ship completed its maiden charter from August 11-18, with a stunning itinerary featuring some of the best dive sites of the Maldives, including North and South Ari, North and South Male, Rasdhoo, and Vaavu.
The vessel, built over an eight-month period, is a partnership between Explorer Ventures and Emperor Divers. This 42-metre boat easily accommodates 26 guests in 13 well-appointed ensuite cabins all with air-conditioning.
Divers can enjoy open-air dining area at the stern of the main deck. Several sofas and tables await you inside the air-conditioned saloon for relaxing or watching TV. A complimentary glass of wine is served with dinner.
The upper deck boasts a covered, open area ideal for watching photos and footage from your diving or just relaxing, star gazing and soaking up the wonderful Maldivian ambience. The sundeck is perfect for catching those sun-rays or taking a nap.
All diving is done from Emperor Explorer’s large dhoni (tender), giving you more living space on board and getting you to the perfect dive spot every time. She offers free NITROX, all diving and safety equipment, as well as four dive guides.
The MV Emperor Explorer is set to be one of the premier liveaboards in the Maldives, exploring the best dive sites in the area.
