About Caribbean Explorer 2

Discover the diving of Saba and St Kitts on board Caribbean Explorer 2. St Kitts is well known as being one of the most picturesque Caribbean islands and has incredibly varied diving to boot. Saba Island is home to exhilarating wall dives with pelagics and swirling fish balls. Virgin reef systems and coral gardens as well as shark dives and drifts await. And with up to 5 dives a day, your Caribbean liveaboard delivers one diving thrill after another.

Caribbean Explorer II sleeps up to 18 divers and is 35m. There are 4 cabins on the same level as the dive deck with a mix of queen double or twin beds. In the lower deck you find twin cabins, some of which have a double bed with bunk above. Please do let your consultant know at the time of booking if you have a specific cabin preference. All cabins have en suite and a centrally controlled air conditioning system.

The saloon is located on the upper deck with entertainment centre, comfy chairs and the bar. Meals are served here and your package includes free alcoholic drinks after the day's diving is done. Or head towards the sun deck to work on your tan, enjoy a read or just soak in the glorious view. The boat will stop at islands for a beach excursion during the trip. Down on the dive deck your kit is stowed safely away in your personal locker. Cameras can be set up in peace with the dedicated facilities on board. And everyone has easy access to the water. Giant stride off the deck and let the real adventure unfold.

Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed my trip to St Kitts and Saba onboard the CE2. So much so that I have already booked my return trip in September. The boat although an old boat is as comfortable as any I've been on, I particularly like the top deck lounge dining room area. It is nice to have the fresh air while your having your meals. Some of the best home cooking I have had on a liveaboard! A fantastic achievement as I have done 60 plus liveaboards! Top quality food served buffet style, you can have as much or little as you want, few meals cooked on the bbq, local fisherman brings his catch on board once a week and cooks for all the guests. Another nice touch is all the alcohol is free, includes spirits, wines, bubbles and beer. The rooms are comfortable each with private shower, particularly enjoyed my chocolate left during the turn down service. The 6 crew worked well as a team and ensured all guests were given excellent customer service.

Hi Georgie, we are back, tired but still elated at such a brilliant week's liveaboard! Our group have been on newer, bigger, more luxurious liveaboards but this was our best trip ever. The team on board are absolutely excellent, they focus 100% on their guests comfort, enjoyment and safety, whilst obviously enjoying what they do. The food is first class, better than many top notch hotels and the diving amazing - we saw the biggest range of sea life ever - from seahorses to whales! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, helped by the range of FREE wines and spirits (!!!) available in the evenings.
