Seafari Explorer Liveaboard, Maldives


The Explorer is the newest ship of the French Seafari Fleet. She had her maiden trip in 2017. The 37-meter wooden vessel is a clean and modern delight in the Maldivian waters, specially built for discovering these astonishing atolls. Accompanied by a custom designed dive dhoni, the Explorer reaches all the best diving grounds and islands in the Northern, Central and Southern Maldives. Our scheduled cruises have a duration of 8 to11 days.


The 8 spacious and fully airconditioned cabins sleep up to a maximum of 20 guests. The quarters are spread over 3 decks. All cabins have large en-suite bathrooms with shower, toilet and hand basin. They offer plenty of storage space and all the amenities one would expect on a luxury yacht. There is a choice of double, twin and double plus single cabins. The maximum occupancy is 3 persons per cabin, perfect for families.


Our friendly and helpful crew speaks English and French. On the main deck is a modern and intimate salon. This is the vibrant living room and heart of the ship. Also on the main deck is the dining room with an adjacent terrace. Outdoor are several chilling zones, shaded and sunny. There is a large sundeck with comfortable chaises longues and a jacuzzi on the top deck. If you’re looking for some privacy, a quiet corner is never far away. You will find all modern conveniences as charging points, multimedia entertainment and Wi-Fi internet on board.


The chef prepares both international and local dishes, and once every week a traditional Maldivian night is organized. A barbecue on the beach is also part of the gastronomic pleasures. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served as convivial buffets with healthy and tasty plates for all likings, vegetarians, meat lovers and seafood fanatics. If you have special alimentary requests, please inform us at the time of your booking. There is a bar onboard to unwind at when the day’s diving is completed.


Seafari Explorer’s diving activities take place from a special dhoni. All diving gear, tanks and compressors stay on this vessel to keep noises and cluttering away from the main ship. There is a possibility to fill tanks with nitrox for divers who are certified. Courses are available on request. Weights, weight belts and aluminium tanks with standard yoke and DIN valves are included. Special gear can be rented at a surcharge. All dives are guided by professionals.
