Maldives Explorer (Island Cruise)

Services & Amenities

On-Board Amenities

  • A four seasons guest receives a massage under a blue tent on the beach in Maldives
    Floating Spa

    Meet our resident spa therapist on the upper deck’s private-treatment area for a restorative and deeply relaxing, Indian-herbal-oil massage, or indulge in a refreshing, sun-soothing body wrap on the shores of a secluded beach.

  • Man on surfboard surfs along large waves in remote Outer Atolls

    Visit rarely surfed breaks in the Outer Atolls, accompanied by two expert guides on one of our 7- or 10-day Tropicsurf Surfaris, which set sail during July and August when surf conditions are at their peak.

  • Man, woman ride in tubes pulled by boat on ocean
    Water Sports

    Looking for an adrenaline rush? Take to the waves with waterskiing, wakeboarding, windsurfing, fun tubes, kayaking and a variety of non-diving activities, all available on request.

  • Two men reel in fishing lines on side of yacht

    Venture out on our dhoni (a traditional Maldivian fishing boat) for some bottom-line fishing, or meet us at the back of the Explorer for handline fishing off the vessel as the sun begins to sink below the horizon each evening.

  • Woman serves volleyball over net as group of friends play on white sand beach
    Local Island Excursions

    Visit remote villages to immerse yourself in unique cultures, spend the day cast away on a secluded sandbank, set out on snorkelling tour with our marine biologist, or play a rousing game of football or rugby on an uninhabited island – when you travel with us, the Baa Atoll is your playground.

Even though we don’t know each other when you board, after we snorkel, dive and visit the islands, we become close friends – it’s my favourite thing about the Four Seasons Explorer experience.
