Daily Diving Schedule
Divers can usually expect two dives in the morning and one in the afternoon, with the option of additional sunrise, night and wreck excursions. From May to November, the currents move large quantities of plankton through the atolls, attracting manta rays and whale sharks to the eastern side of the country. From December to April, the wind reverses, resulting in 30 to 40 metres (100 to 130 feet) of incredible visibility and consistent, near-perfect conditions. Dive itineraries adapt to currents and conditions, seasonal marine visitors and the diving requirements of those on-board. Every cruise aboard Four Seasons Explorer is unique.
