Looking for some shark action? Our team and crew know the best time to have the best chance to see those Red Sea sharks in action.

Explore the majestic southern Red Sea during the warm summer months of May to August with a new Southern Sharks itinerary offering flexibility and focus for ‘action’ dives on liveaboard Emperor Asmaa from Port Ghalib/Marsa Alam.

These months are best-known for the variety of sharks visiting some of the remote offshore reefs. But be prepared to change diving plans at the last minute because Emperor goes where the action is.

The guides select the best possible action sites to visit based on their immense local knowledge and on insider-data on recent activity including a variety of Red Sea sharks, dolphins and anything else that chooses to join the party.

Some of the sites to visit are St Johns, Rocky, Daedalus and Elphinstone but Emperor Divers General Manager, Luke Atkinson explains, “Please remember that the focus of this trip is not about where we go but about what we want to see...sharks! And as always it’s subject to weather conditions.”

Emperor Maldives Marc & Marilen_English PDF final-page-001 jpg.jpg

Adding to the vast wealth of knowledge already totted up by the Emperor Maldives dive guides, two new dive experts now join the team to strengthen it even further.
Marilen Enseñat and Marc Chicano hail from Spain and have successfully run liveaboard dive holidays in every region of the Maldives, especially central and deep south atolls, since 1997.
Fluent in Spanish, French and English, the couple will share their vast knowledge of these iconic atolls having a honed instinct to know where to go for the best chance of superlative diving. With literally thousands of dives and 19 consecutive seasons on Maldivian boats, Emperor Maldives guests are sure to drink in their experience and passion.
“Having guides who know these waters and atolls like the back of their hands is so important.” explains Emperor Maldives MD, Alex Bryant, a veteran himself. “Guests will truly feel they are in the hands of connoisseurs, because that’s exactly what our dive guides are.”
From October, Marc and Marilen are dedicated to three Emperor liveaboards, Emperor Orion, Emperor Leo and Emperor Virgo, covering three itineraries, Best of Maldives, South Central 7 Atolls and Deep South & Southern Sharks. Prices for 7 nights start from 1669 Euros / £1302.
Emperor Maldives consistently offers value, variety, quality, service, professionalism, easy booking, handy local knowledge, flexibility and fast response to guest requests as well as popular purpose-built liveaboards.

Trip report by Sonia and Momo on Emperor Elite

Fins Scuba Ltd on Emperor Elite diving the Brothers, Safaga and Elphinstone

Whale shark, threshers, hammerheads, large grey reef sharks, silkies, yellowfin tuna, dogtooth tuna and a lush soft corals…perfect!

When you get to see mantas on almost every dive, you know something special is happening and when mantas are accompanied by a whale shark, slowly circling threshers getting cleaned, close up hammerheads, large grey reef sharks, silkies chasing schooling unicorns under the boat at night, yellowfin tuna, schooling dogtooth tuna, and all this with a back drop of lush soft corals, and tons of reef fish, you know there are not many seas like the Red Sea and not many dive sites like the Brothers … you know diving here is truly special.

Read the full feedback here and enjoy lots of fabulous photos.


Russ Cheetham


Russ Cheetham2.jpegRuss has been diving since 1994 and, in 2005, decided to exchange his London police uniform for a wetsuit and become a full-time dive instructor. Since then, he has worked in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and Maldives. Luckily, the Maldivian islands must have stolen his heart as he has been diving here for the last six years and has no plans to leave anytime soon.

With his years of experience, his extensive knowledge of the dive sites and his positive and friendly nature, he is the perfect person to guide you in your dream Maldives diving holiday.

For the last three years, he has been seamlessly managing Orion liveaboard and has a dedicated group of return guests who love to dive and spend time with him.

Take a choice of two directions and get the best of diving the Maldives either way. Join Emperor Maldives for 7 nights from 12 - 19 or 19 - 26 November for a Best of Maldives with a difference on the new hotel-style liveaboard, Emperor Serenity. Combining the best of iconic dive sites, this route allows guests to enjoy a bounty of diving.

On the first week, 12 - 19 November, guests can dive the North Male Atoll, including Lankan Manta Point, as Serenity makes her way to Daravandhoo Island. Here guests disembark and take a short domestic flight to Male for homeward flights.

Guests joining Serenity at Daravandhoo Island can expect to dive North Ari Atoll, famous for the Maaya Thila night diving and South Ari Atoll with the strongest chance of seeing whale sharks. Serenity then makes her way to Male where guests disembark.

For a feast of diving, guests can opt for the full 14 night trip from 12 - 26 November.

Emperor Serenity brings a class of her own with contemporary styling and plenty of space where fine accommodation and service is standard. This 40 metre boat easily accommodates 26 guests in 13 well-appointed ensuite cabins with air-con so even a two-week holiday just won’t feel long enough.

Included is full board, free Nitrox, local transfers, visit to a deserted island for a BBQ under the stars and the chance to dive with manta, whale sharks, sharks, turtles and marine life as well as a City tour with local guide.

All diving is done from Emperor Serenity's large dhoni tender, giving more living space on board and getting guests to the perfect dive spot every time. Four dive guides provide a premium service. Non-divers are very welcome and get free snorkelling equipment + $50 voucher to spend on board.

The 7-night trip is from £1699/€2179 per person sharing a lower deck standard twin berth cabin. Prices are boat only and include a one-way domestic flight to/from Male. The cost for 14 nights is for boat only at £3330/€4270 per person sharing a lower deck standard twin berth cabin and operates Male back to Male.

Emperor Maldives consistently offers value, variety, quality, service, professionalism, easy booking, handy local knowledge, flexibility and fast response to guest requests as well as popular purpose-built liveaboards.

Dolphin delights at Marsa Alam, Elphinstone

Enjoy this beautiful video of dolphins by the boat, Isa, with the Marsa Alam team on the way to Elphinstone recently.

Guests also saw a hammerhead and grey reef shark and divers taking a third dive of the day had Dyson the dugong swim past them on Farsha Sahab. It was dive guide, Boody's, really lucky day - and our guests were rather happy too!

There are many ways to get to Elphinstone with us; either privately guided, on a course such as Drift Speciality or even AOW dives.
