"We started in North Malé to South Malé then further south to Vaavu and Meemu and back to Malé.
 
In Alimatha we had our first shark encounters on the first day. We saw many very big nurse sharks, huge sting rays and some black tip sharks. A spectacular dive.
 
In Meemu Atoll we had quite good current with big schools of jacks, eagle rays and many young grey reef sharks. Using a reef hook made this dive quite comfortable and drifiting into the channel was just fun! No wonder why the call Vanhuravalhi Kandu 'Happy corner'. In the channels we spotted some turtles and saw plenty of colourful anemones with their clown fish.
 
After sharks sightings on almost every dive we dove Kurali and watched some manta rays getting cleaned.
 
In Vaavu we had gorgeous soft corals in Fotteyo and Golden Wall. We were accompanied by some curious batfish, barracudas and turtles. On a night dive we had tons of small stuff like nudibranches, ghost-pipe fish, cleaning shrimps, mating octopus and a Spanish dancer!
 
Emperor Atoll is the smallest Emperor Liveaboard in the Maldives. I really love the salon that looks like a british library and with only 12 guests it was a very both friendly and familiar. The Crew is just lovely and made this trip unforgettable! High recommended company."

Emperor Voyager video | Best of Maldives

| No TrackBacks

Andreas Schumacher took this fabulous video from the air, from the boat and from below the water whilst on Emperor Voyager and wrote this trip report …

 

0618 voyager video.jpg

 

“We started in North Malé the to South Malé and further south to Vaavu and Meemu with some cruising west to South Ari, North Ari and back to Malé. In Vaavu Atoll we had gorgeous soft corals and lots of fish. We saw schools of jacks, batfish, barracudas and turtles.

The dive guides pointed out small stuff like nudibranchs, ghost-pipe fish, leaf fish, some octopus and, of course, plenty of colourful anemones. We had great shark and eagle ray encounters. In South Ari Atoll we watched out for whale sharks first cruising with the dhoni and then during the dive.

After an interesting seminar about manta rays we dove Rangali and saw plenty of in one spot. Almost impossible to count. In Ari Atoll we did the Kudhimaa Wreck, which is also known as Machafushi Wreck. A really nice wreck, which is easy to dive and with a bit of luck you can find sleeping nurse sharks.

At the end of the trip we did Fish Head in North Ari Atoll, which has huge schools of yellow snappers; maybe the biggest population in the world.

Emperor Voyager is a really comfortable liveaboard with a massive yet cosy salon and open bar area. All meals are served outside, which gives a perfect feeling of a holiday on the Maldives. Highlight was a breath-taking sunset on the barbecue island.

The week on Emperor Voyager was just stunning! Great dive guides and crew! Excellent company.”

Thanks Andreas!
