Dive Marsa Alam and get these dive trips included

| No TrackBacks
1010 ma web photo.jpgThe location just couldn't be better and the facilities at Emperor's Marsa Alam dive centre are second-to-none.

Based in the Marina Lodge at Port Ghalib, you are literally just a few metres away from our boats moored on the hotel jetty and the airport is just a 10-minute drive away.

When you book your week's diving, the following trips are included free of charge:
  • Torfet Ali
  • Marsa Mubarak
  • Ras el Torfa
  • Halg Salmaan

Or pay a bit extra and visit Elphinstone Overnight for just 99 Euros or Dolphin House Reef for 45 Euros. So much choice!

The diving schedule is arranged on a day to day basis locally with the centre. Special trips run subject to availability, minimum numbers and weather conditions and can be booked and paid for directly with the centre.

Why Nick Smith LOVES Emperor Sharm

| No TrackBacks

I never, in a million years, thought that I'd have enjoyed learning to dive so much. From the first day checking in at Sharm I instantly felt at ease and very welcome. The atmosphere created by everyone in the whole team was amazing. From the bus in the morning to having a beer at the end of the day. This helped a great deal as I had real anxieties about the whole course.

I must mention the incredibly patient and calming way Mariann was throughout the course. From the paperwork to the final dive, she made sure every last detail was explained in advance and that I understood everything before we undertook any activities. I was most impressed at how clear and calming she was under the surface.

I had a FEAR of removing my mask in the sea. Just the simplicity of her demonstration and her relaxed nature made me able to complete this no problem.

I'm already planning to return next year and will definitely be taking another course with Emperor!

Budding young diver impresses team

| No TrackBacks

Young Joran Buwalda from the Netherlands was diving at Emperor Divers, Hurghada, for the second time recently with Mattijn Buwalda - his dad and dive buddy.

0910 Joran & Ghiannis D.JPGAt just 13 years old Joran is already an accomplished diver. He has 50 dives and has completed his Junior Rescue Diver training.

Dive guide Keith Provins was very impressed with Joran's underwater skills and it seems he was quite a dab hand at steering the boat too!

But much to Keith's delight Joran also enjoys drawing, and was happy to help out with sketching the dive site maps.

Joran is pictured here holding up his excellent drawing of the Ghiannis D.
