Luxury dive travel specialists Original Diving will host the inaugural voyage of the Four Seasons Explorer to the uncharted wonders of the deep south of the Maldives: Laamu, Huvadhoo and Fuvahmulah atolls. Exclusively arranged by Original Diving and the team at Four Seasons, the luxury liveaboard will, for the first time, travel to the remote southern atolls, island-hopping across the Maldives most secluded islands and exploring some of the least visited dive sites.

The itinerary will include: 

  • Shark encounters at one of the most southerly atolls in the Maldives, including the possibility of thresher, hammerhead and tiger sharks
  • Incredible and remote diving throughout the trip, with the likelihood of having most dive sites to yourself
  • Excellent snorkelling throughout, suitable for those that don't dive
  • Night snorkelling with whale sharks
  • Diving the deep south of the Maldives in true luxury


The Four Seasons Explorer is a spacious 128-ft, three-deck catamaran and considered to be one the best liveaboards in the world. With 11 cabins hosting a maximum of 22 guests, the intimate, floating-resort allows guests the freedom to explore a greater number and variety of sites than being land-based – but with all the luxurious amenities of a Four Seasons hotel

The well-organised cruise allows for signature Four Seasons relaxation, with a masseuse as part of the crew. Dive sites and land visits to explore the islands are always just a moment away, and to ensure divers get the most out of the trip, guests will be joined on board by a marine biologist. Above water marine sports are also possible –the boat is equipped with fishing gear, kayaks, water skis and windsurf boards.

Prices start around £12,200 per person, including flights, but each experience is tailor-made for the guest by Original Diving. For more information, visit, or give the team a call on +44 (0)20 7978 0505
