Greatest Show on Earth - Ras Mo, Right Now!

| No TrackBacks

By Emperor's Regional Manager, Luke Atkinson

The phrase ‘world class’ gets overused, and it’s true I’ve seen people turn their noses up when I say the Red Sea can offer true ‘world class’ diving. I suppose it’s comforting to think that unless you make 2 or more flight connections and spend at least a full day travelling then yeah sure, you can have great diving, but not ‘world class’.

I’m lucky enough to be able to travel around all the Emperor Red Sea centres and meet divers in every location. What surprises me is that not everybody knows about what is for me (and many, many others) one of the greatest spectacles you can see under the water anywhere in the world, and it’s just a 5 hour flight from Europe.

Diving in Sharm

Sharm El Sheikh offers great diving year round, but from mid-May-ish to mid-July-ish (hey – this is nature we’re talking about), the tip of the Sinai Peninsula where the 2 gulfs collide becomes the meeting place for huge schools of fish concentrated on one or two dive sites, and it is so good you run out of superlatives. The Egyptians have known about this for years, and fortunately made Ras Mohamed area a marine reserve in 1983. For more than 30 years, divers have been able to witness enormous schools of snapper, batfish, barracuda, tuna and unicornfish among others. True world class.

Dive the Maldives - great value!

The Maldives is one of the most appealing dive destinations in the world with its relaxed atmosphere, year-round warm water and sightings of great pelagics, like this magnificent manta.

Its rich marine life teems around the coral reefs where you will find schools of fish, sharks, mantas and rays with regular appearances by playful dolphins.

There are plenty of trips throughout the year starting at just £744.79/€1049.00.

“Great Dive sites, First Class Service. High repeat business”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2015 NEW

Emperor are a first class outfit with an emphasis on safety, whilst still being able to get the most out of the diving experience. A highly professional company who will always try and go that "extra mile"  

Everyone at the company play their part in trying to provide you a first class trip. From the receptionists, to the guides, to the boat crew and skipper.

Sharm El Sheikh is a pleasure to dive and never gets boring. By the end of a weeks diving you will feel at home, and know most of the guides names as they will know yours, its like being around family and friends.

This is definitely another customer who will repeat visit again, next time will be our fourth.

Thanks to Pete, Saad, Elise, Alex, Chris, Gunn, Ali, Naasa and the Shorouk crew, see you all again soon.

Emperor El Gouna 'Excellent Again'

“Excellent Again”

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2015 NEW

Spent nine days diving with Emperor on a 10 day holiday from 15th May 2015. This was our second trip to El Gouna and as before Emperor was fantastic. It was really nice that the guides and crew remembered us from last year and welcomed us back.

Great boats and crew (Safaga and Darwish), free nitrox, good dive sites including excellent 3 dive day on Abu Nahas wrecks, comprehensive briefings, first class safety and great dive guides. Managed to meet up with dolphins this time.

During the trip we were guided by the excellent Terry, Ehab or Tiger and on occasions dived independently. Tiger was especially brilliant and great fun. My partner Rosh did her PADI Deep Speciality with Tiger and she loved it as he is a great instructor.

Been to a number of Emperor centres over the years and they have always of a very high standard. Look forward to returning again soon.

Frogfish, who travelled with UK tour operator, Diverse Travel, know a thing or two about underwater photography and have just returned from a wonderful week in the Maldives, taking pictures for their new book, on board Emperor Atoll.  
 
Seems a good time was had, "We loved Emperor Atoll because it only takes 12 divers. With 10 staff you get great service and you see more of the dive site rather than just the bubbles of the other divers. 
 
The crew, certainly, go out of their way to make sure you are happy and the chef made us tasty meals - his Sri Lankan curries were truly stupendous. 
 
Our favourite dives were 2 of the 3 night dives, with feeding mantas off the back of the boat, and then being surrounded by nurse sharks on another. Brilliant."
