Luxury adventures can explore the untouched reaches of the Maldives’ exotic atolls aboard Four Seasons’ new 39 meter/128 foot catamaran by selecting from three, four and seven day cruise options. The Four Seasons Island Explorer allows avid divers, water enthusiasts, nature lovers and 21st century explorers to discover remote shores and rarely visited dive/snorkelling sites enjoying the same service, comfort, and style offered at the Four Seasons Resort.

Built to the highest standards, the sleek three-deck catamaran built in Perth, Australia by Image Marine features ten (10) spacious state rooms and one (1) beautifully-appointed Explorer Suite, two sun decks with Jacuzzi, restaurant with indoor and outdoor dining, bar, lounge and library. This 39 meter/128 foot catamaran with a beam of 12 meters and a draft of 1.90 meters cruises at 14 knots with twin MTU diesels and fixed pitch propellers. A Sea State Motion Control System further enhances the innate stability of the vessel.

Ensuring guests view the most spectacular scenery and sites in the remote waters, the Four Seasons Island Explorer will stop at pre-selected sites daily. Along the journey guests can select to partake in dives to remote regions seldom seen by locals or tourists; snorkel and play in the turquoise waters teeming with neon-coloured sea life; indulge in amazing Four Seasons lunch breaks or dinner celebrations on the private shores of tropical white sandy beaches; or relax in solitude under the shade of a coconut palm like Robinson Cruise. Limited to 22 passengers, this unique cruise experience is for people who enjoy their privacy and are seeking a holiday that takes them beyond the normal beach escape.
