Test your sea legs on the newly launched Island Explorer at the Four Seasons’ 12-acre private island resort.

The unique cruise experience—limited to 22 passengers—presents a rare opportunity for water enthusiasts, nature lovers, and adventurers to visit remote shores, view spectacular scenery, and discover rarely visited dive and snorkeling sites while enjoying Four Seasons service, comfort, and style.

Billed as the world’s most luxurious live-aboard cruise vessel, the sleek three-deck, 11-cabin catamaran features spacious staterooms and a beautifully appointed Explorer Suite, two sundecks with Jacuzzi, restaurant with indoor-outdoor dining, bar, lounge, library, and PADI dive center.

Along the journey, you can participate in sunrise, shipwreck, night, or educational dives. You may also snorkel, kayak, windsurf, and play in the turquoise waters teeming with neon sea creatures; have a massage; indulge in amazing lunch breaks or dinner celebrations on the private shores of tropical white-sand beaches; or relax under the shade of a coconut palm.
