The Northeast Caribbean is an intriguing area offering a blend of Dutch, British, French and Native cultures on some of the most scenic islands of the Caribbean.
Departing each Saturday on her 8 day/7 night diving expeditions, this charter boards in St. Kitts and disembarks in St. Maarten. Itineraries including 5-1/2 days of diving, including 3 days of diving within the Saba Marine Park and 2-1/2 days of diving the St. Kitts dive sites. 5 dives daily are offered, including night dives. The schedule also provides for an optional land tour of Saba (miss 1 dive) if you wish to explore the rainforest there. Once disembarking in St. Maarten, you'll have Friday afternoon free to explore either the Dutch or the French sides of the island or even see both!
The CEX II's combination of diving and optional island access has always been unique within the Caribbean Liveaboard diving industry. As a dedicated dive Liveaboard, all diving is done directly off of the vessel, using the expansive dive deck covering the aft third of the main deck. Each diver has his or her own dive gear bin; a large camera table as well as rinse tanks, wetsuit drying racks, charging stations are available for all to use.
NITROX is available for those certified in its use; tanks are filled in place in between each dive so there is never any need to disassemble your gear. If you are interested in touring the island, other guests can continue diving. Explorer Ventures onboard crew can also arrange additional time ashore to hike the rainforest, horseback ride on the beach or even play golf….check with the crew when you board.
CEX II features private ensuite bathrooms in each of the nine air-conditioned double staterooms. A crew of seven, including 4 dive instructors, caters to the needs of the 18 guests each week. Each stateroom has a private lavatory, toilet and shower; most have queen beds with a twin bed option, as well.
A large semi-enclosed salon serves as the main gathering place for meals, slide shows and movies. Aft of the salon, the sundeck features a large area and lounge chairs to relax and read or soak up the sun's rays in between dives.
