This was the first live aboard experience I've had, and it was a fantastic introduction to the concept. I met the Caribbean Explorer II at Port Zante in St. Kitts, and we were off for six days of world-class diving. We bounced around St. Kitts, Nevis, and Saba before landing in St. Marten for the last day of on-shore activities.... More

I've been on the Humboldt Explorer in January and had an amazing time. Not only was the diving at Galapagos wonderful (that was to be expected since it is one of the best dive sites in the world), but the crew on the boat made it an unforgettable trip as well. Everybody was very nice and helpful. Experienced (local) dive... More

This was my fourth trip with Explorer Ventures -- I love the Turks and Caicos CB II. The cabins on the main deck offer two lower beds rather than the bunk bed style of some of the other boats. CB II has a wonderful sun deck and upper lounge bar area with the coldest beverages on the boat. The nice... More

I have been on several liveaboards over the last couple of years and was extremely pleased with my experience on the Caribbean Explorer II on its Saba/St Kitts/St Maarten itinerary. While this boat has a few hours on the clock, it is comfortable and very seaworthy. The captain and crew are attentive and safety comes first 24/7. The diving was... More

I've done the Saba/St Kitts cruise aboard the Caribbean Explorer II in Dec'13, Maldives aboard the Carpe Vita in March'14 and the Galapagos Islands aboard the Humboldt Explorer in Dec'14. All of my experiences have been beyond my expectations. What they have in common, is a great parent company with great staff. All three boats had impeccable staffs that were... More

This live aboard dive trip is for divers with experience. The seas/currents are changing all the time. The staff is helpful but not as knowledgeable as I have encountered in the past. Or maybe they just didn't want to go the extra mile.

Our local dive shop recently spent a week aboard the CEXII on the St.Martin to St. Kitts path. It was the first LOB for most of us and everyone enjoyed the trip. The boat was older but comfortable and functional. The arrangement was basically that you set up your gear the way you like it and never touch it again... More

In November of 2014, we took the Caribbean Explorer II live aboard dive boat from St. Maarten to St. Kitts. Although it is not a high-end boat, it is very practical for simply diving. The cabins are a tad small with very little room to store clothes and the boat is too small for an indoor saloon. But the dive... More
