Caribbean Explorer

The new 110ft Caribbean Explorer used to be Peter Hughes’ first live-aboard, Sea Dancer, which is now operated by Explorer Ventures, owners of the Turks & Caicos Explorer in Providenciales (which used to be the old Caribbean Explorer). Confused? You should be!

Her main deck features the dive deck with individual tank racks, camera tables and rinse tanks, freshwater showers and dive platform. Forward of the dive deck are four of Caribbean Explorer’s nine cabins - three Master Staterooms and a Deluxe Twin. The Master Staterooms (1 - 3) each have a double bed and basin within the cabin, en suite bathroom and large picture window. The Deluxe Twin (4) has single bunks above & below and basin within the cabin and en suite bathroom, plus large picture window. For people who would prefer to tumble out of bed and straight into the sea, rather than have breakfast first, these are the cabins to go for!

From the main deck companionway you can make your way below decks to the other five cabins on Caribbean Explorer, two Owner’s Suites and three Deluxe Staterooms. The Owner’s Suites (5 & 6) at the front of the ship, have two single beds that can be made into double beds for couples, basin within the cabin and large en suite bathrooms. The Deluxe Staterooms (7 - 9) have double beds and single bunks above, basins within the cabin, and en suite bathrooms. These cabins have portholes for natural light. All the cabins on Caribbean Explorer have air-conditioning.

A stairway from the dive deck takes you to the upper deck, where the dining area is located. This area has panoramic views as it is open to the sides and back; when it is windy or raining, special clear screens are lowered and secured, to the deck – this makes the dining area wind & watertight, but still allows you to have a great view! The dining area has optional air-conditioning if it is particularly still & hot, but usually the commanding position of on the upper deck allows a gentle breeze to keep things pleasantly cool. Beyond the dining area is an open sun deck with loungers. The Caribbean Explorer does not have a saloon – all "communal" relaxation time is taken either on the sun deck or in the dining area.

Caribbean Explorer runs 7-night cruises Saturday-Saturday, either starting in St Maarten and finishing in St Kitts or vice versa. This allows her to maximise your dive time without having to back track through previsouly dived areas.
