MV Carpe Vita Explorer

A dream built of wood

The M/V Carpe Vita Explorer is the new upgraded sistership of the M/V Carpe Diem. She was scheduled for her first trip on Feb. 27, 2011. The Carpe Vita Explorer is a completely newly built vessel and will be accompanied by a specially designed new 61 foot diving dhoni (diving tender) to meet the needs and comfort of the divers today. Both liveaboardss are made out of wood and built by the same people that built the Carpe Diem. The Carpe Vita Explorer will be a more luxurious version of the Carpe Diem, mainly focussing on the dive industry by offering safari cruises with standard up to 4 dives a day. As the Carpe Diem, the Carpe Vita Explorer has 10 guest cabins divided in 3 categories over 3 decks and can cater for a maximum of 20 divers. The diving is good throughout the year. The vessel`s itineraries are designed to take advantage of the changing conditions and to take divers to the best diving areas for the different seasons. The visibility is usually at its peak in December/January (sometimes well over 100 feet!). Mantas can be seen throughout the year with the best feeding-station encounters typically during the May-November time frame. Whale sharks are also seen most every month of the year, with the highest concentration seen in the monsoon transition months of April-May and October-November. The water temperatures remain a toasty 80-85º throughout the year. Most divers are comfortable with a 3mm wetsuit.
