'Gentle Giants Expeditions' with the Manta Trust aboard Four Seasons Explorer
This year, Four Seasons Explorer is offering guests a rare opportunity to join one of two all-inclusive seven-day expeditions studying the Maldives’ most exciting residents: manta rays and whale sharks!
Conceived in conjunction with The Manta Trust – the world’s leading manta ray charity – and escorted by its founder and world-renowned manta expert, Guy Stevens, each expedition is tailored to maximise chances of ‘gentle giant’ encounters while immersing participants in every aspect of the research experience.
Join Guy and his team on August 21 – 28 or September 11 – 18 onboard Four Seasons Explorer – the Maldives’ most luxurious and fastest cruising liveaboard – for an unforgettable odyssey to renowned aggregation sites in the Baa and Ari Atolls during 2014’s peak sighting dates (as identified by the Manta Trust experts).
Improve your free-diving technique; learn how to take ID photos; help record critical environmental information; and participate in presentations and workshops on a host of topics designed to enrich your knowledge of, and appreciation for, the marine life of the Maldives. And because mantas and whale sharks feed at the surface, you don’t need to be a diver to join in!
Complemented by the superlative water sports, leisure and diving facilities of the world’s only floating Four Seasons ‘resort’, this is a once-in-a-lifetime unique opportunity to engage in the little-known world of manta rays and whale sharks alongside some of the world’s leading experts. Book early to avoid disappointment!
