Carpe Vita

Carpe Vita: what better way to explore the beautiful Maldives!

This beautiful 38-meter long safari yacht Carpe Vita, an upgraded version of Carpe Diem and second addition to the Explorer Ventures Fleet, took to the water in 2011. Carpe Vita liveaboard trips depart from Male to wonderful diving locations in the central atolls including North Male, South Male and Ari Atoll. Occasionally, the Carpe Vita will take you on an exploration trip to the Northern and Southern Atolls. The Carpe Vita liveaboard offers cruises of either 7 or 10 nights with four dives per day, instead of the usual three offered by other liveaboards: the ultimate trip for the super-keen diver
