Thanks to a recent guest for this rave review (yes, another one) for the team and crew at Emperor Marsa Alam. 

SERVICE Excellent
"Emperor Divers are the best dive company in the Red Sea. They are a safe, professional outfit whose boat crews are unsurpassed. We have returned multiple times to dive with Emperor Divers in Marsa Alam and haven't yet found anyone who compares.

The dive guides will do their utmost to find whatever rocks your boat whether it's Dyson the Dugong, Dolphins, Turtles or the Macro Photographers favourites like Shrimps and Nudibranch.

You'll come, you'll dive and you'll leave with fantastic memories and some new friends for life. Don't dive with anyone else until you've tried them.

We've been visiting for 7 years and have just had the best trip yet."

SERVICE Excellent

"I thought the service was better than outstanding. I can't find fault from the minute we started the holiday with Emperor Divers to the minute it all sadly came to an end.

My partner and I have never experienced first class service like we did on the immaculate Emperor Superior. The crew are passionate about what they do and was clearly seen throughout the trip.

My partner and I desperately needed the holiday after the recent death of my Father. As a result I am unemployed and suffering from minor depression. The crew, but the dive guide in particular, has inspired me to return back to work and find a company as good as Emperor Divers. The crew made me realise I am only 24 and life is too short to not be happy!

We will be using the service again and hope to book a trip to Maldives for 2018...with Emperor Divers of course!! 10/10!"

NEW | Emperor Indonesia has arrived

| No TrackBacks

RL_ sailing1 crop.jpg

We are so excited to announce the birth of Emperor Indonesia and the launch of MY Emperor Raja Laut in September 2017.

Raja Laut, which means King of the Sea in Bahasa Indonesian, is a beautiful traditional Dutch Schooner-style sailing yacht built in south Sulawesi in 2005. She has spent much of the last 12 years sailing around Southeast Asia for private charter; Emperor Divers is honoured to have her as their introductory boat in the magical Indonesian archipelago.

With 12 berths, the attention to detail and the level of service expected from the seven crew and three dive guides will leave guests wanting to return time and time again.

MY Emperor Raja Laut will be sailing the world-renowned diving areas of Raja Ampat, the Banda Sea and Komodo National Park. Expect to play with mantas, hammerhead sharks, whale sharks and pygmy seahorses as well as Komodo Dragons on land. Indonesia offers riches for all and is a truly magical place.

A strong team will see Emperor teaming up with Andrew Laughlin, who has spent the last 10 years building and managing Indonesian liveaboards and has over 30 years' experience in the diving and yachting industry. He is also a PADI Master Instructor and Yacht Master.

With an exciting mix of itineraries varying from between 7 and 12 nights, Emperor Indonesia brings unprecedented value and something for everyone to one of the world's top diving destinations.

We have been a major dive centre and liveaboard operator in the Red Sea since 1992 and in the Maldives since 2017.
