Just why is the Red Sea so amazing?

Dive into this fantastic video taken by Behind the Mask whilst on Emperor Superior and you'll find out why.

It's refreshingly passionate. The team loves to discover new things, be honest in their story telling and to show Nature in her natural light.

Prepare for extreme happiness, hammerheads, reefs, Longimanus (oceanic white tip), pods of dolphins, inquisitive turtle and smiles and smiles and smiles.

Emperor Superior, Red Sea
'Great Variety of Diving'
Service was great, airport transfer to the boat on time. Hotel to airport (after the trip) 10 minutes early. On Emperor Asmaa: great crew, great food, very laid back and chilled out. The diving nice and varied a good balance between reefs and wrecks with great conditions. Overall a great week. Love Emperor Divers as a company.
Lovely guest

'Had an excellent time'
Had an excellent time on board of Emperor Superior. Amazing staff, clean rooms and good food! Lovely guest

Emperor Superior, Red Sea
'Outstanding thoughtful Company'
I have dived with Emperor for about 20 years and the service is fantastic. I have had back surgery in the past 18 months and your team were outstanding looking after me. Sonia is wonderful lady and understood that i needed assistance but not too much to make me feel helpless in any way. Top of the class I say. Thank you so much.

We thought you might like an update on little Acorn, the rescue Hawksbill turtle.

Back in March we told you about our then Dive Master Trainee, Sandeep, at Emperor Laamu rescuing a small Hawksbill turtle that had become entangled in nets floating in the sea. Acorn was flown to Marine Savers Maldives to be cared for and is back to full health.

 

Acorn the turtle

 

We have recently received this video showing Acorn's release into the wild. Thank you to the helpful staff at Olive Ridley Project for their assistance and this update. A special mention goes to the amazing staff at Marine Savers for doing such a great job bringing Acorn back to full health.

Another sharing of some wonderful reviews from our recent guests. Thank you for the glowing feedback.

Emperor Superior, Red Sea
"The crew was amazing and the captain lead a team of experienced seaman. We always felt safe as the conditions were not the best. He was able to always find a safe bay and all dives were awesome. The food was very good, tasty and good variety. The service was also great. The dive guides were nothing less than awesome. They clearly enjoyed what they were doing and shared their passion with the divers."
Anne-Marie Lacasse

Emperor Superior, Red Sea

Lovely guest

Emperor Superior, Red Sea
"We have spent a great week of diving with the emperor crew on the wreck tour. Very experienced and friendly staff, excellent service and a variety of different dive spots. 100% recommendation."
Alexander Krueger

Emperor Virgo, Maldives
"The cruise was fantastic! The room was nice and clean and the crew...awesome! Special big up to the cooks and Chandana. The dives were terrific and I had a lot of pleasure discovering everyday different nice spots."
Lovely guest

Emperor Virgo, Maldives
"The boat was very well organised with up to 4 dives a day if needed. Hire equipment was new and worked well. Although there are 24 ish divers on the boat there are 4 dive leaders who each lead a small group. Our leader was Jules who was excellent. Many of the dive sites can be busy and he always found a unique spot for our small group of 7 divers. The crew of the boat were excellent and I was well catered for as a vegan."
Steve Williams

Maldives You & Me Resort and magical mantas

| No TrackBacks

 

Mantas, Maldives

 

The season might be winding down but we are still seeing mantas at the cleaning station getting cleaned. Just so wonderful to watch.

Our Dive Centre is right on the arrival jetty with direct access to the lagoon. This is also where our dive dhonis (boats) leave for an exciting range of dive sites, which suit all levels of experience. For the more experienced, we offer wall and current diving where we are also able to spot bigger fish such as eagle rays, grey reef sharks, tunas, snappers, mantas and more.
