“SUMMER OF MANTAS” AND “WINTER OF WONDERS” WITH FOUR SEASONS EXPLORER
From July to October, brand new Summer of Mantas cruises offer all-inclusive 3, 4, or 7 night itineraries that follow the world’s largest known population of "oceanic ballerinas" – and their whale shark friends – through the Baa Atoll UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and into the plankton-rich waters of Rasdhoo, North and South Ari Atolls. Join experts from The Manta Trust (recently featured on CNN), for thrilling mid-ocean encounters, diving and snorkelling remote reefs, prime sunrise and night sites, and untouched coral-rich thilas.
From November to May 2022, experience a different extraordinary every day with Winter of Wonders cruises: endless bucket-list encounters across five atolls, from coral-ceilinged caves to camera-happy sharks, swim-through tunnels to a fish-filled wreck. Unlike Summer of Mantas cruises that depart from and arrive back to Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru, Winter of Wonders cruises follow 3, 4 and 7 night itineraries between Landaa Giraavaru and Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Kuda Huraa.
Tropicsurf Surf Cruises and private charters – for groups of up to 22 – extend the boat’s year-round appeal. Sandbank spa treatments, gourmet dining, water sports, cooking classes, yoga and island visits further heighten the luxury cruise appeal.
A floating 5-Star PADI Dive Centre, Four Seasons Explorer includes the latest Scubapro dive gear, Cressi snorkelling gear and Olympus cameras alongside a team of multi-lingual instructors ready to share the full spectrum of PADI courses at a bespoke pace.
Each of the 10 air-conditioned staterooms and expansive Explorer Suite offer blue-hued views through large windows, along with spacious ensuite bathrooms, refrigerated private bars, stunning artwork, and flat-screen LCD TVs.
Add the sleek, chic interiors of an artfully-designed liveaboard – including sun decks, a lounge, a library, a restaurant and two bars – plus Four Seasons signature service standards for an oceanic odyssey unlike any other.
With the health and safety of its guests and staff a top priority, Four Seasons Explorer provides the ultimate care, confidence, trust and comfort through its Lead With Care program – heightened health and safety protocols led by global experts that include enhanced cleanliness, physical distancing measures in shared spaces, and empowering staff training grounded in emotional intelligence.
