Dives are done from the vessel itself, taking advantage of the easy-access dive platform or from the side gates, which are about 1.5 metres above the sea.

Aboard the Caribbean Explorer II, evening meals usually consist of lots of fresh vegetables, rice, pasta, chicken, beef, turkey, pork and fish. Breakfast is the usual fare of eggs, bacon, pancakes, French toast, muffins and fresh fruits. Lunches vary from soup and sandwiches to burgers, pasta, assorted salads and quiche. Homemade baked breads, cookies and brownies are offered between dives. Almost everyone who travels on Caribbean Explorer II agrees that the food is some of the best to be found on any liveaboard!
