Comments Caribbean Explorer II is a comfortable boat and has all the amenities needed to make diving as easy as possible. The boat itself is not 5-star, but the rooms are clean, bunks comfortable (we had queen stateroom #1) and everything was in good working condition. What made the experience while on-board truly outstanding was the crew. They approached everything with a mind for safety, while ensuring that every customer was delighted every step of the way.

We flew in to St. Martin on US Air via Charlotte and departed back home from St. Kitts via American through Miami - which was a nightmare!!!

Diving was really good for caribbean diving. The reefs were healthy, many dive sites had alot of fish. There was something for everyone from macro to several sharks and turtles. Diving can be relatively deep. There were few opportunities to do a safety stop on top of the reef. Most sites, the top of the reef was 40ft. While not alot of walls, you could go as deep as you wanted. We found the best diving at 60-75 ft.

Would definitely do this trip again. A great value for a live aboard, Under $2000 all in. Alcohol included and amazing meals prepared by Chef Tuna!

I've done this trip 3 times, and will do my 4th in August (my FREE trip). Glad everything is still up to the level I experienced before.
