One of the Maldives premier liveaboards, the Carpe Vita is the newest edition to the Explorer Ventures ever expanding fleet. Step aboard and you will see the attention to detail that has gone into the making of this great and modern boat. Built in 2010, the Carpe Vita is a 38 metre wooden hull purpose built liveaboard along with her 20 metre custom built matching diving “dhoni”. Meals on board the Carpe Vita are served in a semi buffet style and prepared by the fine dining chef. The large main deck is where the air conditioned lounge, restaurant area and buffet table is located along with the library, camera table and business centre. There is a comfortable sitting area with plug points for laptops as well as a music system, TV/DVD and MP3 player for entertainment.

The platform at the back with 2 freshwater showers is located near an outdoor sitting area with comfortable cushions where you can take in the beautiful colours of the Indian Ocean. On the upper deck you will find the 2 spacious suites along with the main open air dining area and bar. The outside sofa seating area in front of the bridge also offers fabulous views of the clear blue seas. The sundeck chairs and hot tub are perfect for a relaxing evening after a hard day’s diving.

The Carpe Vita comfortably accommodates 20 passengers in its 10 large cabins. All 6 standard cabins have a queen size bed and a single bed, individually controlled air conditioning, safety boxes, en-suites, TV/DVD players, closet and a port window. The cabin doors have sea creature names rather than a number. The 2 superior cabins come with a king size bed which can be separated into 2 single beds, a large window and the same amenities as the standard cabin. The 2 spacious suites have a Californian king size bed which can be separated into 2 super single beds, windows throughout the side of the cabin, dual sink in bathroom, bath tub and separate shower, two closets and modern amenities.
