    Caribbean Explorer II trip report - Sept 30 - Oct 7 2017

    This weeks charter marked the first following a hurricane timeout. The last month has been a test of endurance by crew and vessel as they plied the waters between St Maarten, St Kitts, Guadeloupe and Dominica, seeking shelter and assisting those in need. As we observe each island slowly...

    Saba/St. Kitts diving report - Caribbean Explorer II

    Aaand...Caribbean Explorer II is back diving! She is now on her second charter after the passage of hurricanes Irma and Maria, and the dive site reports from both Saba and St. Kitts are in. We're excited to report very little storm effect on most of our normal sites, and a few (Brimstone and...

    Hurricanes Irma and Maria update - Caribbean operations

    Now that the weather has calmed down in our Caribbean destinations, we have a chance to finally come up for air (no pun intended - really) and get back to our regularly-scheduled programming! Caribbean Explorer II weathered the passage of Maria with no problem, and is back in St. Kitts...

    Ease of diving and relative depths in Saba StKitts and question about sharks

    Well, don't quote me on the weather, but you can generally expect mid to high 80's as far as air temp in February. Winter is generally a bit windier and seas a bit higher, but our diving is tailored to the conditions and we'll be able to find calmer sites. If the seas are a bit lumpier, the...

    Ease of diving and relative depths in Saba StKitts and question about sharks

    Certainly! Below is what Lynn summarized: "It will be easy to stay in the 40 – 70 foot range on all but a handful of dives. St. Kitts very easy for shallower depths the premier dive sites are in the 40 – 70 foot range. i.e. River Taw, M/V Corinthian, Paradise Reef (you can stay in the...

    Ease of diving and relative depths in Saba StKitts and question about sharks

    Hi Craig - I believe you already spoke to Lynn this morning and got all of the answers that you needed - she's spent several years on board on that itinerary, as well as in the Turks & Caicos, and knows the sites well! Please let us know if there's anything else that we can do for you. Best...

    St. Maarten/Saba/St. Kitts

    It really depends on the specific vessel and your degree of flexibility, as well as the number of people traveling. We often book charters up to several years in advance, and if you have a specific week that you need to travel, then booking well in advance is always a good idea. The need to...

    Going on Explorer II to Turks & Caicos on May 24th, have you went by yourself?

    I looked at the manifest for that week, and it looks as though most if not all of the guests are traveling alone - so you'll be in good company! - Clay

    Pay for 5, get 1 FREE! Grab some friends and get on a liveaboard!

    I'm very sorry, but $4.73 is the absolute highest I can go. You know, diesel price increases and all that.... ;-) - Clay

    Liveaboard, extra charges after full payments

    Sure thing, I have no problem with that! :cool2: Actually the 5 Explorer Ventures trips have to be undiscounted - and then the average price paid is taken off your 6th trip. So our Crazy Insane trips wouldn't count towards your 6th, but more than 200 people have taken a free or really...

    Hello, Carpe Diem or Sachika?

    I'm not familiar with Sachika, and am obviously not impartial when it comes to Carpe Vita Explorer (or her sister ship, the Carpe Diem), but you'll find several trip reports on both via Google, many of them on SB. Many SBers have traveled on them; you might want to try a post in the Liveaboards...

    Recommendation for liveaboard in Turks or Belize?

    Awww, thanks Janie, you're very kind! You can be sure we'll add more itineraries as time goes by, though Belize is fairly well covered already - we do several very cool itineraries aboard Turks & Caicos Explorer II above and beyond our normal Provo round-trips, including one-way trips over to...

    Recommendation for liveaboard in Turks or Belize?

    Hi Janie - Thanks again for joining us back in April! Our other Caribbean vessel, Turks & Caicos Explorer II, is based in Provo (Turks & Caicos) - you'll find plenty of trip reports online here, and can visit www.explorerventures.com for more info about the boat and itinerary. I can't...

    Which Turks and Caicos Liveaboard?

    Wow - looks like USDT's page only got a scattershot update. Turks & Caicos Explorer II replaced the original Turks & Caicos Explorer (formerly Caribbean Explorer, subsequently Caribbean Explorer I) in 2005. The second two pictures are indeed of the old boat, which many of you have gone on in...

    Welcome to the Explorer Ventures Liveaboard Fleet forum!

    Hi John - It's pretty rare that we'll cancel a departure due to lack of numbers, but our general policy is to notify people a minimum of 30 days prior to the trip if we do. That said, we understand that a trip on this scale gets planned well before 30 days, in general, so we'll keep people...
