Meet our NEW Maldives flagship - Emperor Explorer

| No TrackBacks


Emperor Explorer, Maldives


From this August, our new flagship liveaboard, Emperor Explorer, will be offering contemporary and spacious accommodation where our top-notch service is standard.

At 42 metres, she effortlessly accommodates 26 guests in 13 well-appointed ensuite cabins all with air-con. Add to that her Spa, spacious diving and relaxation areas and you are set to be captivated with her high standards in liveaboard Maldives holidays.

Emperor Explorer will operate 7-day itineraries chosen specifically to suit the best seasons in the Maldives with longer 10-day trips focussing on dive sites further afield. All diving is done from her large dhoni (tender), giving more living space on board and getting you to the best dive spot every time.

As the flagship, Emperor Explorer will offer up to four dives a day and, as with all Emperor liveaboards, NITROX is free of charge. A complimentary glass of wine is served with dinner; with Emperor's transparent pricing policy there are no hidden extras on board.

Prices start from / £1759 / €1979 / $2295.

This happy addition to the Emperor family takes our Maldives fleet to six liveaboards.

The brand new Emperor-managed dive centre at You & Me in Raa Atoll brings the number of resort-based diving centres to two, along with Emperor Divers Laamu, Gan (Laamu Atoll).

You & Me in Raa Atoll is for adults only and perfectly set up for all things diving. We are also managing the state-of-the-art Water Sports Centre with a range of activities for divers and non-divers alike.

This brand new 5-star resort is opening early 2019 and is just 20 minutes by speedboat from Ifuru domestic airport or a 45 minute seaplane ride from Male’s international airport.

Divers can enjoy channel, tila and wall diving for all levels, colourful soft and hard corals, sharks, rays and large schools of reef fish, mantas and feeding stations.

Our Dive Centre is right on the arrival jetty with direct access to the lagoon. This is also where the dive dhonis (boats) leave for an exciting range of dive sites, which suit all levels of experience. For the more skilled there is wall and current diving with eagle rays, grey reef sharks, tunas, snappers, mantas and more.

You can opt for 2-tank and full day trips as well as a full range of PADI courses from beginner to professional level. You will find brand new Scuba Pro rental equipment, aluminium cylinders, equipment room, rinse facilities and a teaching area.

Emperor Maldives consistently offers value, variety, quality, service, professionalism, easy booking, local knowledge, flexibility and fast response to guest requests, as seen in the numerous 5 Star Feefo guest reviews.

You can also choose from five, soon to be six, Maldives liveaboards for ‘further afield’ diving where Emperor’s policy promises no hidden extras on board.

We've said it before, we'll say it again; there's no greater recommendation than those directly from our guests.
Thanks to Amanda and David for these super words...
Amanda Chandler on Emperor Superior
"HIGHLY recommended- brilliant trip. Another brilliant trip with EMPEROR, this time in the Red Sea on Emperor Superior. Lovely modern spacious comfortable boat, fab food, and great service from the whole team on the boat. And the Duxy photography itinerary was the icing on the cake. HIGHLY recommended all round."
David Creighton on Emperor Superior
"Open deck good for experienced divers. Enjoyed the photography cruise with Duxy and the moorings where ‘open deck’ in effect gave flexibility for experienced divers to dive when and how they wanted. Was well monitored by the dive crew onboard. Fantastic kitchen staff also appreciated."
