Location and transfer
Cruises depart from Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Kuda Huraa or the Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru
Gourmet meals can be taken in the dining room, the outdoor deck area, or on an uninhabited island. Beachfront barbecues and sunset cocktails are often arranged.
Guests who are qualified divers have everything they need on Four Seasosn Explorer with two morning dives and an afternoon dive usually available, plus the option for sunrise, nighttime and wreck dives. Between May and November, the ocean currents move large quantities of plankton through the atolls attracting marinelife including manta rays and whale sharks, while from December to April, the wind reverses, resulting in thirty to forty metres of visibility. As a result dive itineraries are structured around the conditions during your trip.
For those wishing to improve their diving confidence and skills, a number of development courses, including Advanced Open Water Diving, are available. In addition, underwater photography and videography services are available, at an additional cost.
Health & Fitness
Four Seasons Explorer has a resident spa therapist who can be booked for relaxing therapies that can be enjoyed in the privacy of the private treatment area on the upper deck, or at one of the secluded beaches along the way.
