Explorer Ventures Liveaboard Fleet Announces Year of Savings Event



Explorer Ventures Liveaboard Fleet began operations in June 1987 with the introduction of the original Caribbean Explorer in the Northeastern Caribbean. Almost 28 years later, EV remains true to its roots and continues to offer outstanding dive experiences at an exceptional value. The company now boasts 5 liveaboard destinations across the world, including Saba, St. Kitts and St. Maarten in the Northeastern Caribbean, plus the Turks & Caicos Islands, Galapagos Islands, Maldives and the Dominican Republic.

To celebrate the New Year, Explorer Ventures is offering the Year of Savings Specials on its first and still-running Northeastern Caribbean itinerary as well as savings on other destinations within the fleet. These weeks often sell out quickly and there’s an extra incentive to book early: a $500 discount per person on select Caribbean departures if reserved and the deposit is made by the 31st January.

NUPG Lockdown Best of…



Usually the January NUPG meeting involves a guest judge coming to Manchester to talk through the very best images members had taken in the previous 12 months. However, this year, due to COVID19 restriction many of the members had not had the chance to dive. The NUPG committee decided to change the rules a little. So this year members judged a series of Best of the Century images online and were also invited to take part in a lockdown underwater bath tub category.

There were five categories for members to enter. Here are the winners of each…

British and Irish Close Up

Octopus in St Abbs Marine Reserve by Mike Clark

British and Irish Wide Angle

A Basking Shark off the coast of Cornwall by Nick Robertson-Brown

Overseas Close Up

A squid at night in the Lembeh Strait in Indonesia by Ken Byrne

The next NUPG meeting will be held on Monday 8th February and the guest speaker is John Bantin.
