Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Explorer Ventures Fleet® is excited to announce its new group travel specials for DEMA 2023, offering dive shops the chance to keep more cash in their pockets, with free liveaboard berth spaces and low deposit terms.

This year’s 2023 DEMA specials provide dive shops with the flexibility of selecting cash savings and deposit amounts based on group size, while also allowing them to choose when and where they would like to travel into 2026. This is perfect for groups wanting to dive the Caribbean, Turks and Caicos, Red Sea, Maldives, and Galapagos Islands, on the following vessels: Caribbean Explorer II, Turks & Caicos Explorer II, Grand Sea Explorer, Emperor Explorer, Humboldt Explorer, and Tiburon Explorer. With standard free berth spaces also included (one complimentary space for as few as five booked, up to two per charter), dive shops can save even more money while offering their clients an unforgettable liveaboard experience. Plus, the lowered deposit terms allow dive shops to start with an initial small investment allowing for additional time to promote and sell the trip. 

Sea to Sky

According to Clay McCardell, Explorer Ventures Fleet’s CEO, “We know how important it is for dive shops to have flexibility when planning group trips, particularly in light of the current conditions. Our new specials offer the opportunity for dive shops to save money, while also enjoying the freedom to customize each group’s size according to the shop’s unique needs.”

These new 2023 DEMA specials are perfect for dive shops looking to book an inclusive liveaboard dive trip with friends or clients. The promotion offers versatility and affordability, while also delivering a memorable experience on one of Explorer Ventures Fleet’s superior liveaboards.
