It's like diving in the OLD days – but it's NEW and Untouched!

0813 green nemo ma new trip.jpg

Come and experience three dives on our new ‘Dive down South’ 3-Dive Day Trip from Marsa Alam. This is where your diving takes a trip back in time and the clock rewinds to those wonderful days of when Marsa Alam was the most virgin diving destination in the Red Sea.

Luke Atkinson, Emperor Marsa Alam Area Manager, explains more:

"This year we put one of our own boats, Empress Isa, in Marsa Alam marina (not to be confused with Port Ghalib marina where we have had a fleet for nearly 10 years) as we were getting frustrated with the quality of daily charter boats available for trips such as Sha'ab Samadai (Dolphin House).

We realised that all the boats leaving Marsa Alam were either going to Sha'ab Marsa Alam, Sha'ab Samadai or on an offshore safari, meaning the local marsas (bays) have remained untouched for boat diving. We just had to find a way for Emperor guests, who were some of the first to ever boat dive the region, to be able to day dive these sites for the first time, taking advantage of the deeper moorings to explore parts of the reef that shore divers will never see.

Think immaculate corals, abundant fish life and nobody else except your own dive group - exactly what Marsa diving grew up on. The ‘Dive down South’ 3-Dive Day Trip takes in three different dives visiting at least two different marsas and is great for Marsa Alam old-timers and newcomers alike."

Be amongst the first to boat dive these areas! The day trip costs only 20 Euros extra, which includes your return transfer to Marsa Alam marina and three dives in at least two different pristine locations.

Emperor Hurghada 'TripAdvisor recommended'

| No TrackBacks

Thanks to a recent guest for this honest review from TipAdvisor...some good advise and a happy ending...

“Should have been my first choice!”

Reviewed August 13, 2013 NEW

Unfortunately, I tried a one day dive package at my hotel resort with another company and was left very disappointed and wasted a day! so a quick review of Trip Advisor, a chat with our Thomson rep and a dive package was booked with Emperor Divers.

Hurghada aerial view centre boats.jpgThe next morning I was collected exactly at the time stated from my hotel in Magawish and driven to the dive center in Hurghada in a clean, air-conditioned minibus. I was greeted as if the staff all knew me and after completing all the mandatory paperwork directed onto their newly refurbished boat 'Orchid'. Ehab was the guide for the day and he gave an informative briefing of all the boat facilities including first aid, oxygen, etc. Excellent dive briefings were held for both of the days dives and a real emphasis was placed on safety and buddy checks. The dives were fantastic and Ehab made them relaxed and interesting.

I was so pleased, I booked a further 5 days and arranged for my daughter to take her Junior Advanced Open Water course as well as some daily dives.

Hannah was my daughter's instructor for the course, I have to say a huge thank you to Hannah as my daughter thoroughly enjoyed the course and told me that she felt comfortable at all times and didn't feel any pressure. Each of the five dives required for the JAOW included some 'sightseeing' time which made it even more rewarding.

Amongst all the normal aquatic life we saw dolphins twice, turtles, octopus and an eagle ray (just).

I could not fault the friendliness and helpfulness of the captain and his crew. The lunches provided were excellent and I liked the fact that you could choose on a daily basis whether to have lunch and drinks, just drinks or nothing. The dive center facilities were excellent and the kit that I hired for my daughter was clean and in good condition.

I would agree with a few of the reviews that Emperor Divers are not the cheapest BUT the difference really is just a few pounds and for what I got out of it was really good value for money!
