Explore the beautiful Maldives in excellent comfort on board Carpe Vita!

The beautiful 38 meters long safari yacht Carpe Vita entered the water for the first time in the year 2011 and is an upgraded version of Carpe Diem and the newest addition to the Explorer Ventures Fleet. Carpe Vita liveaboard trips of either 7 or 10 nights depart from Male and take you to the best sites of the central atolls including North Male, South Male and Ari Atoll and an occasional exploration cruise to the Northern and Southern Atolls. This liveaboard is made with divers in mind and schedules four dives a day to the standard three dives that most liveaboards offer.


Carpe Vita has ten guest cabins divided into three categories (2 suites, two superior and six standards) over three decks and can cater to a maximum of 20 guests. All the cabins have air-conditioning, en-suite bathrooms, HD entertainment system and personal safe. The suites have California size king-size bed, two wardrobes, a small desk and a bath. The superior cabins have king size beds, and the standard cabins have one queen size bed and a single bed.


The main deck features an air-conditioned lounge area that has a library, a flat screen TV, DVD/MP3 player, sound system, sitting area, a buffet table and a refrigerator. There is also an outdoor shaded sitting area complete with comfortable cushioned seats where you can sip your afternoon tea and enjoy the stunning view of the Indian Ocean.

On the top floor, there is the beautiful sun deck, partly shaded where you can take in the rays by lying down on the sun beds or take a relaxing soak in the Jacuzzi.


The restaurant offers Asian and Western cuisine in buffet style. With dinner, you can enjoy two free glasses of wine or beer.


Carpe Vita, accompanied by a custom built 20 meters long diving Dhoni and all dives take place from here. The dive equipment storage area is on the main deck, and the dive platform is at the back of the main deck with two fresh water showers. Nitrox is available for certified divers.

There are dive courses available on Carpe Vita for those who like to do something in between and during the dives.
