“Great diving & great people”

5 of 5 starsReviewed 24 June 2014 

My husband and I just came back from a 6 day diving experience with Emperor Divers Marsa Alam, where we also did our AOW certification. The wonderful experience that we had with Emperors in Scharm El Sheik back in February convinced us to book the next diving trip also with ED.  We were not disappointed.  

We met some wonderful, fully dedicated to their job people, who although diving daily, still are as enthusiastic about every dive as a newcomer.  The pickups were always on time, equipment in good to very good condition. The briefings and the maps were detailed and thorough. The safety of the divers and (luckily) of the reef were always stressed upon.  

The crew on the boat was extremly helpful and a pleasure to be around to. We really enjoyed the lunches on the boat - there was a great variety of food.  The diving sites are among the best I have ever seen - full of life and color. Unfortunatly the weather did not allow us to do Elphinstone - but that is just one more reason to go back to Egypt. :)  Our next diving trip in Egypt will be surely be booked with Emperors.

| No TrackBacks

Emperor Voyager3.jpg


Welcome to one of the most appealing dive destinations in the world. With its relaxed atmosphere, year-round warm water and sightings of great pelagics, the Maldives is a ‘must dive’ location. Its rich marine life teems around the coral reefs where you’ll find schools of fish, sharks, mantas and rays with regular appearances by playful dolphins.

Our liveaboard MV Emperor Voyager (formally known as Atoll Cruiser) sails from Male and she’s a rather splendid modern, spacious boat built to a high standard. She takes 20 guests in real comfort offering magical trips such as 'The Best of the Maldives' and 'Manta Madness'.

Emperor Voyager offers FREE NITROX as standard and great value. A week's diving on a full board basis including 17 dives and Nitrox costs from just £987.70pp / € 1,190.00 (excluding flights).

NOW is the time to dive the Red Sea says guest

Read this insightful feedback, via TripAdvisor, from a recent guest with Emperor Sharm. Good reasons to come and dive the Red Sea now - keep the industry going and see some of the best conditions!

“Still the Best.”

5 of 5 starsReviewed 16 June 2014 

Dolphins of the Red Sea

I have recently returned from yet another scuba diving holiday in Sharm-El-Sheikh, diving with Emperor Divers based at the Bay View Hotel.   

Unfortunately with the on-going political situation in Egypt, like all of the tourist businesses and hotels, Emperor Divers, while doing better than most, are not immune from the vast reduction in tourist numbers.

However despite this I am happy to report that Emperor Divers have fully maintained their standards of both safety and service.

Actually, as a scuba diver now is a really good time to travel to Sharm-El-Sheikh as there is more room on the daily dive boats and far less pressure on the various dive sites both at Tiran and within the Ras Mohammed National Park. In addition currently there are some really good low-price offers on both the hotels and the various dive packages if pre-booked on-line.

Having previously dived over many years in the area of Sharm-El-Sheikh, with less pressure on the dive sites, this last trip rates as one of the best for fish life, which even included diving with Dolphins.

So despite the downturn in business, Emperor Divers have retained some of the best English speaking Dive Leaders/Instructors in the Sharm area, so I fully recommend this company if you are either a qualified scuba diver or you are a new diver interested in taking up the sport and taking a training programme.

Here's a fab review from a recent guest to Emperor Sharm via Feefo

If Carlsberg made diving in a tin then it would be made by Emperor Divers.

Sharm boat leaving sm.jpg

The staff are excellent in customer service. Claire, Cat and Alex in the reservations office are so so helpful and friendly with a lovely smile to boot. The guides are fun to be with on and off the boat especially Scott, Pete and Saad. 

I like the no nonsense approach and appreciate the seriousness when needed on briefings. I took a good friend with me on the latest trip and he was new to recreational diving. He's not stopped talking about it since. His testimonial was in his words " fantastic, loved it, can't knock the price you get great value for money" So pleased with that.

Thanks for another great nine days diving. See you all soon.

"Yet another top diving trip”

5 of 5 starsReviewed 3 June 2014 NEW

Having returned home, I'd just like to thank all at Emperor divers Sharm El Sheikh.

Sharm boat leaving sm.jpgAs always the staff were enthusiastic and polite. The assistance and help prior to arrival was second to none. I'd like to thank Claire, Alex and Cat in the reservations office for their assistance and speedy communications prior to arrival and their welcoming smiles on a daily basis. Thanks to Carol for having a great team of guides, and special thanks to Scott, Pete, Saad and Elise for your continued welcoming attitude. I had encouraged a good friend of mine to try Sharm for his diving and Emperor was his first experience of a dive center. He was full of praise and full of smiles at the end of his dive days. We were fortunate to see a lot of stuff, small and large. A portion of his smiles are thanks in part to the staff at Emperor for making him welcome.

I will continue to recommend anyone who asks me where to go and who to use for their diving. And I would have no hesitation in taking new divers there to learn and discover what we love, Great diving, Great location, Great people, Great weather, Great holidays.

PS. Sharm El Sheikh is safe!!!! Please don't be put off by the goings on in the North.

Thanks again and see you all again soon


Emperor Divers expands diving to the Maldives

| No TrackBacks
Having successfully operated dive centres in the Red Sea since 1992, Emperor Divers asked guests where else they would like to enjoy the Emperor experience. The Maldives was a resounding request and Emperor Divers Maldives is now open.
Liveaboard MV Emperor Voyager (formally known as MV Atoll Cruiser) sails from Male and is a luxury modern, spacious liveaboard built to a high standard, accommodating 20 guests in real comfort offering magical trips such as 'The Best of the Maldives' and 'Manta Madness'.
Says Mike Braun, General Manager of Emperor Divers, “Booking a Maldives liveaboard through Emperor means guests are safe in the knowledge that their team of guides, crew and chefs are trained to a high standard, offering top notch customer service. You don't have to be a seasoned diver to enjoy a Maldives liveaboard - whatever your level, Emperor has something to suit you.”
Fascinating dive briefings, fabulous meals and an impressive choice of routes with the strong chance of seeing large pelagics makes this a 'bucket list' destination.
Emperor Divers Maldives is also offering day diving from Casa Mia Resort. A boutique resort, with just 10 rooms along the beach, it’s one of the only resorts situated on a local island just a speedboat or seaplane ride from Male.
The Maldives is one of the most appealing dive destinations in the world with its relaxed atmosphere, year-round warm water and sightings of great pelagics. Its rich marine life teems around the coral reefs where you will find schools of fish, sharks, mantas and rays with regular appearances by playful dolphins.
