0416 Emperor Atoll moored with dhoni 1 (Medium) (2).jpg

The Emperor Atoll is a fine boat - we knew what to expect as we'd been on it last year. It's small and basic, but the food is lovely and the crew are great, which suits us fine.

Twelve divers means that there's less faff kitting up and fewer divers in the water. We get the impression that over the last few years operators have been moving towards bigger/more luxurious boats. To be honest, that's not what we're really looking for.

The small, basic end of things is good for us - and who actually needs a Jacuzzi after four hours in the water? We dived with Arif, who we'd also dived with last year, and he's one of my favourite dive guides - really nice and slow. Overall good diving with a couple of excellent manta encounters. 

So, overall, very satisfied! We'll probably be looking for something for Easter next year, so will be in touch shortly about that..."

Maldives spotlight on Emperor Leo

| No TrackBacks

1115 Leo collage.jpg

Sailing into her fourth season, Emperor Leo has undergone some sweeping changes over the summer months.

With a modernised look and the use of light and bright colours, Emperor Leo will stand out in the Emperor Fleet as another ‘flagship’ liveaboard.

A newly added upper deck cabin offers outstanding ocean views, with a total of three superior cabins on the upper deck, each with direct access to the open patio area.

All cabins have undergone a transformation and offer guests a stylish and comfortable haven. With compact, modern bathrooms, the accommodation is of hotel standard and service.

Whilst features in the lounge and dining area have been updated, they reflect her traditional décor and returning guests will enjoy the fine level of improvements. Utilising the wood design of bar and dining area, the whole space welcomes the Maldivian sunlight, mirrored in the colourful accessories and luxuriously large sofas.

Not only has the boat undergone changes but in order to stay abreast of culinary expectation, Emperor’s professional chefs are interchanged across the Fleet in order to provide contemporary and innovative international cuisine.

Emperor Leo lays claim to having one of the most experienced dive guides leading the choice of trips in the Maldives; Chris Trickey. For over 15 years, Chris has headed diving trips here and he truly knows where to dive, how to dive and how to make the best out of your trip. He is renowned throughout the diving industry and guests return trip after trip specifically to dive under his guidance.

Experience and knowledge continues with the years of Maldivian maritime experience and familiarity from Captain Ahmed. Having taken command of Emperor Leo several years ago, he carries a calm and reassuring presence, sailing the boat through the Atolls whilst running the team of professional chefs, housekeepers, barmen and crew with unflappable skill.

To ensure memorable diving, it is essential to have an exceptional dhoni captain. MV Sirina accompanies Emperor Leo, acting as the diving platform from which to enjoy the magical waters and giving more room on the ‘mother ship’. Captain Niyaz, a man who hails from the southern Atolls, has navigated the Maldivian waters both north and south. His unsurpassable knowledge of the dive sites needs to be seen to be believed – his promise to direct the boat to the best possible drops is legendary.

Emperor Leo sails Best of Maldives, South Central 7 Atolls, Deep South & Southern Sharks and offers group discounts up to 20 pay and four go free.
