NEW Emperor Indonesia set to launch

| No TrackBacks

Emperor Raja Laut, Indonesia

Emperor Divers is excited to announce the birth of Emperor Indonesia and the launch of MY Emperor Raja Laut in September 2017. 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.

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; we are honoured to have her as our introductory boat in the magical Indonesian archipelago.

With 12 berths, the attention to detail and the level of service expected from our 7 crew and 3 dive guides will leave guests wanting to return time and time again.

MY Emperor Raja Laut will be taking us to the world-renowned diving areas of Raja Ampat, Triton Bay, 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.

Itineraries will vary from 7 to 12 nights and start from USD 390 per person per night.

Keep your eyes peeled for more details in the coming weeks as spaces are expected to sell fast.

Manta at night from back of boat fb.jpg

 

So far this year, Emperor Maldives has reported a large number of sightings of whale sharks making their casual, gentle, relaxed way to the back of the boats as they moor for night-time. Not unusual, but certainly gratifying for the guests aboard these spacious liveaboards. And the manta have been around in abundance for both divers and snorkellers.

The 2017/18 season is already shaping up to be a memorable one. We have exciting dive trips sailing a range of routes from ‘Best of the Maldives’ to the ‘Deep South and Southern Sharks’ that, while not guaranteeing to see whalesharks, certainly know how to get the best chance thanks to the intimate local knowledge of their dive guides.

The Maldives certainly has its seasons but when diving, the need for blue skies and constant sunshine diminishes in the face of scoring that bucket-list dive destination. With its gentle climate and year-round temperatures between 26 degrees C-30 degrees C, there is an itinerary to suit divers of all levels and, this is good too, for those who don’t dive.

Our liveaboards are spacious with sun decks, some with jacuzzis, private patios and lend themselves perfectly to snorkelling, swimming and just letting the world go by. Indeed, non-divers are so welcome they get free snorkelling equipment and a $50 voucher to spend on board.

All six Emperor Maldives liveaboards offer fine accommodation and service. Included is full board, free nitrox and local transfers.

Seven-night trips start from £1,091 per person sharing a standard twin berth cabin. Ten-night trips are also available. Prices do not include international flights. Up to four free places are on offer for group bookings.
