The M/V Carpe Novo Explorer, began service in March 2016!
This new modern vessel, sister ship of Carpe Vita Explorer and Carpe Diem, is the newest member of the Explorer Ventures Fleet expanding our itinerary offerings to include longer trips to more remote areas in the Maldives. This new 22-passenger, 140-foot wooden-hull safari yacht, along with her 60-foot custom matching dhoni (dive tender), was built by one of the Maldives most accomplished boat builders. It provides guests with an exceptional yachting experience, hotel-style staterooms and unmatched open-air comfort!
The Carpe Novo Explorer offers 11/10-night, 7-night and specialty itineraries which change depending on the season. Each offers a unique dive itinerary based on the seasons, current and pelagic migration patterns.
Staffed by a crew of 13, the Carpe Novo Explorer is ideally sized and equipped for divers. Three dives are conducted daily directly from a 60-foot dhoni, which is fully equipped with a bathroom, hot-water showers and air and nitrox compressors. The vessel is well-stocked with quality diving gear for those who choose not to bring all or some of their own. The crew, one of the most experience and qualified in the Maldives, is ready to take you on an adventure to one of the most amazing diving destinations in the world, whether you are a first-time or repeat visitor!
