It's good to be on the Red Carpet! Emperor is now part of an exclusive group of service providers in the dive resort and hospitality community. Just thought you might like to know! 

Oh? What does it mean. It means you continue to get the exceptional quality of both customer service and diving experience that goes hand in hand when you're an Emperor guest.




Overweight? Team Hurghada has a few tips

| No TrackBacks
Could you do with losing a few kilos while you dive? Removing weight can improve your air consumption, reduce the amount of air going into and out of your BCD and give you a more relaxed, streamlined dive. Take some tips from the Hurghada Team on how to descend with your optimum weighting.

Superior proves she's super in 2008 Diver Awards

Superior ext people sm.jpg'Spacious Superior' - Emperor Fleet's Gold Class liveaboard has swept a place in the Diver Awards 2008.

She certainly deserves it as you can see for yourself just by clicking here

Not only is she spacious, but she also has FREE Nitrox and right now there are some serious savings to be had on imminent safaris.


Apart from celebrating the New Year in Sharm, celebrations were also underway for nine newly fledged instructors. This was the biggest Instructor Development Course for years and everyone passed with flying colours.
At last returning Marsa Alam guest, Neil Ball, finally went over to the dark side! After many visits to MA he finally had a Rebreather Try Dive to dispel all those questions and preconceptions. After a few 'chipmunk cheek' moments (try one and you will understand) he got the hang of it and loved the experience and gained a new respect for divers that use them. So the next time you're planning a trip to one of our centres and fancy trying something completely different just let us know before you arrive and we will explain all.

Sharm continues its transformation

Sharm's New Floor
So the move has been made and we are now well and truly established in the new dive centre - or are we? From an operational point of view it's a definite yes and all the staff seem to like our new home, as do our returning guests. However, Emperor Standards must be maintained and so even more upgrades have been carried out: new windows, new displays, new roof, new air-con, refurbished tables, new shading and new flooring! Enjoy the picture show...and enjoy it even more by coming to see for yourself. A warm welcome awaits you!

Nowadays there are quite a few divers using "Nitrox", and the numbers are increasing all the time. Some of them dive on a regular basis and have therefore mastered the technique used to analyse the blend correctly. Others do not dive very often and tend to forget some critical steps that will give the correct reading without damaging the oxygen analyser. So, let's revisit what you should do before you dive with Enriched Air Nitrox.

Emperor now 'premier dive centre' in Sharm

| No TrackBacks

Bay View Hotel New Dive Centre sm.JPGAlthough the facilities at the Rosetta Hotel were good, the new arrangements at the Bay View Hotel must make Emperor Divers the premier dive centre in Sharm.

A professional, efficient and attentive dive service accompanied by the lively adjacent DeBrief Bar (with some of the cheapest beer prices in town) make this an excellent set up.

Emperor Divers are in the business of delivering a great dive holiday and the bottom line is we've had a great dive holiday.

Bay View roof terrace night 181208Dsc_sm_0494.jpgEven after just a few short weeks our new centre feels like home. We now have fantastic facilities - probably the best in Sharm - with that added holiday feel about the place. The pool, classrooms, equipment and general layout is fantastic and the poolside bar offers discounted drinks...and then there are two more bars!
