Emperor Echo

Andrew Clarke on Emperor Echo had this to say, "Fantastic dive operation, amazing boat and great staff! Amazing trip with Emperor Divers. We were extremely well looked after from meeting a staff member to arrange our visa, transport to the boat, the crew for helping us get our gear on board and of course our entire time on the boat.
On the boat the staff were brilliant. Our room was cleaned several times a day, it seemed like every time we went diving the entire boat was cleaned from top to bottom - bathrooms, bedrooms, living areas and decks. The dive guides and deck hands were fantastic. All our equipment needs were catered for and staff were really helpful kitting up and getting us into the water."

Hammerhead video at Emperor Laamu

| No TrackBacks


Whoohoo! Hammerhead! Watch this fabulous short video taken at Fushi Kandu aka fish soup.

Completely out of nowhere, and unexpected, this was shot in very shallow water. The hammerhead was around 8-10m depth cruising over the top of guides and divers measuring approx 3m in length.

Emperor Divers Laamu rescues Hawksbill turtle

| No TrackBacks


Whilst taking guests out for a dolphin excursion, Sandeep, our Divemaster Trainee at Emperor Divers Laamu, rescued a hawksbill turtle which had become entangled in a hessian grain sack.

Fortunately Adam, Centre Manager, was coming back from a dive on the dhoni and took the turtle from Sandeep to continue the rescue. With careful attention they freed it and contacted the Olive Ridley Turtle Project for help and advice.

They advised it was OK to release, the turtle but to check to make sure it could descend. "It tried but kept bobbing back up so we retrieved it from the water and placed it in our rinse tank (filled with salt water) where it had a sleep," explained Adam. It was then flown to Marine Savers where it will get all the help it needs to get back to the ocean.

You can see the update of the turtle, they named Acorn, below in the video by Marine Savers. Good luck Acorn!
