MV Eco Explorer dive boat review

The MV Eco Explorer is a 46 meters liveaboard cruising around the Philippines Islands. Built in 1982, this steel hulled vessel has been upgraded since and still offers comfortable accommodations for an unforgettable adventure!

Boat Cabins & Layout

The large vessel welcomes a large number of guests, maximum 40, in 20 comfortable cabins. Indeed, the spacious cabins come complete with air-conditioning and en-suite bathroom. Plus, the shower has both cold and hot water running!

Eco Explorer’s on-board facilities

Just like it’s expected to be on such a large vessel, the Eco Explorer offers more than enough space to enjoy some privacy during a busy week! Indeed, inside and out, the dive vessel features spacious rooms and areas where you will be comfortable and feel a little like home.

Moreover, the very top deck is home to a restaurant-like covered dining area. Also, as you can see on the picture below, there is a central bar where you can get refreshments and drinks.

First, you should know that the indoor areas are fully air-conditioned. Now, you will find a sizable salon with a full entertainment system and media library to enjoy, located on the main deck. Furthermore, if you head to the upper deck (what they call the A deck) you will be pleased to find a jacuzzi! Plus, this is the main sundeck, featuring plenty of cushioned loungers.
