Four Seasons Explorer – Fours Seasons Hotels & Resorts’ only floating resort – is offering two seasonal cruise itineraries in the Maldives in 2022.
Available to a maximum of 22 guests at a time, the 39-metre, three-deck vessel takes divers, snorkellers and adventurers on all-inclusive three-, four- or seven-night odysseys into some of the Indian Ocean’s most abundant waters, complete with gourmet dining, spa therapies, water sports, island visits and Four Seasons’ extraordinary service standards.
From now until 29 May 2022 (and again from 31 October to 18 December 2022), guests can 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. Winter of Wonders cruises sail between Four Seasons’ two sister Maldivian Resorts, departing from Kuda Huraa on Mondays and Landaa Giraavaru on Thursdays.
From 27 June to 31 October 2022, itineraries change to Summer of Mantas, in line with the huge seasonal aggregations of manta rays and whale sharks that come to the region to feed. Guests will get up close and personal with the world’s largest known population of manta rays alongside The Manta Trust team dedicated to studying them during an epic gentle giants odyssey through the Baa Atoll UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and into Rasdhoo, North and South Ari Atolls. Summer of Mantas cruises depart and return to Four Seasons Landaa Giraavaru, also on either a three-, four- and seven-night itinerary.
Each of the 10 air-conditioned staterooms offers blue-hued views through large windows, along with spacious ensuite bathrooms, refrigerated private bars, and flat-screen LCD TVs. For the ultimate luxury, the expansive Explorer Suite boasts an abundance of interior space, a wall of windows, and its own sunbathing deck.
A floating 5-Star PADI Dive Centre, Four Seasons Explorer features the latest Scubapro dive gear, Cressi snorkelling gear and Olympus cameras, while a team of multi-lingual instructors share the full spectrum of PADI courses at a bespoke pace with highly individualised attention.
Sandbank spa treatments, gourmet dining, and water sports take the Four Seasons experience to sea within sleek, chic interiors that include a new sun deck, a lounge, a library, a restaurant and two bars.
The vessel is also available for private dive, surf or leisure charters for groups of up to 22.
