Itineraries

In the Northeastern Caribbean Caribbean Explorer II offers 2 itineraries, depending on the week you choose to dive.

Due to the necessity of readying the vessel for our next cruise, Both itineraries must strictly enforce the 9am departure deadline. Should you be leaving on an afternoon flight, feel free to leave your luggage aboard (or on the dock alongside) until you depart.

Daily Itineraries
Days aboard the vessel generally involve breakfast from 7 to 8 am (cold breakfasts are available for late risers), followed by two morning dives, lunch at 12:30 pm, two afternoon dives, dinner at 6:30 pm, and a night dive.
