Maldives Explorer (Island Cruise)

Getting Here

North Male Atoll, Maldives

Let us take you on an unforgettable expedition to the unexplored reefs of the Baa, Raa, Ari and North Male atolls, which each provides its own unique thrills during sunrise, day and night dives. When you’re not discovering the wonders of the deep, lounge on deserted beaches, snorkel in crystalline waters, visit remote-island communities and relax with an al-fresco massage or gourmet fine dining, either on board or on a postcard-worthy secluded shoreline.

Let us take care of your transport arrangements. +(960) 66 00 888 Contact

Passports and Visas
All visitors to the Maldives must possess a valid passport and return air ticket. A complimentary, 30-day tourist visa will be issued upon arrival. If guests are arriving from Yellow Fever-infected areas, they must produce a vaccination certificate. Guests may not bring alcohol, pork products, pornography or weapons into the Maldives. These items will be confiscated at the airport, and disposed of, by the airport authorities.
We’ll Meet You There
Upon arrival at Male International Airport, you’ll be greeted by Four Seasons representatives and escorted to either a waiting speedboat for the 25-minute ride to Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Kuda Huraa, or to our Four Seasons seaplane lounge prior to the 35- to 45-minute flight to Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru. Kuda Huraa is the point of embarkation for Four Seasons Explorer three- and seven-night cruises, while four-night cruises embark from Landaa Giraavaru. If you’d like to include a stay at one of these sister properties, please contact our Concierge for more details.
Early Arrivals
If your arrival at Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Kuda Huraa or Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Landaa Giraavaru is early in the day, in advance of your scheduled cruise, and you prefer immediate access to your room, we recommend reserving for the prior night to guarantee immediate access. Similarly, for late departures, reserving an additional night will guarantee access until you leave the Resort. If you choose not to reserve, we will be glad to store your bags and make our changing-room facilities available for you to freshen up.
