Sidemount

 

"Once we tried it, we had to share it with you," says Luke Atkinson, Emperor Divers' Red Sea General Manager. "The freedom of diving with Sidemount is an experience for all divers."

Sidemount diving is growing fast and becoming a popular choice because of the ease with which you can kit up and dive. We asked many of our guests who dived with Sidemount if they would ever go back to the back plate and the majority reply was 'never!'

You can add a second tank for more gas, more balance and more redundancy; either way Sidemount is a winner with one tank or two.

We have the full range of options for divers, whether you're Sidemount trained or not:

  • PADI Sidemount Specialty with our professional instructors to learn and certify in the new gear
  • Gear rental for further Sidemount exploration
  • An awesome deal exclusive to Emperor guests - 15% off any X-Deep gear you want to buy
  • Sidemount/extra tank rental if you have your own gear

"This is a great chance to try something new. We tried it, we loved it, you will too!" concludes Luke.

Emperor Raja Laut sails Komodo - time to plan ahead

| No TrackBacks

                                  Laut in Komodo

 

The Komodo National Park is world renowned for the excellent quality and variety of diving.

Water temperatures change between the north and south of the Park and provide varied encounters. In the north we have the black sands of the Sangeang Volcano with its critters and bubble flows and the reefs around Gili Banta.

The south provides cooler temperatures with manta action and nutrient rich reefs with ocean flow from the Indian Ocean. The central section provides reefs and small islands teeming with life fed by the currents running between the islands of Komodo and Rinca.

Add to this the chance to see the famous Komodo Dragon in its natural habitat, beautiful beaches, look-outs to climb and you have a paradise both below and above the water.

 

And you can get started right here!
