There’s no need to repeat how unprecedented the Covid 19 pandemic is. The effects are everywhere. We’d like to thank those guests who have been affected by the travel chaos for their understanding and patience and to our many friends who have sent their best wishes.
 
We will get through this. The Emperor family have all stepped up to ensure we’ll be there to provide you with some great diving in the future. We’re all uncertain about when “normal” will return but we all know it will. So, we understand there is no way anyone wants to pay a deposit for a holiday when they can’t be sure it’ll happen as planned.
 
Our solution is to let you hold spaces on our boats for FREE – no deposit, just an agreement to be fair with each other.
 
Contact us either at reservations@emperordivers.com or via your favourite dive travel operator and we’ll hold any date from 01 July 2020 onwards – no deposit required. Once the travel bans are lifted and “normal“ service returns, we’ll ask you to pay our low deposit of EUR 200 / GBP 180 / USD 250 per person and then the final balance at the normal time. Should you decide you can’t travel as planned, then no harm done, we’ll just cancel your place and hope to be of service to you at some other time.
 
Because our lives have been “paused” by Covid 19, many 2020 bookings have re-booked for late 2020 and into 2021: we hope this offer helps you plan ahead and hold your place with no risk.
We're aware that travel restrictions imposed by governments to contain COVID 19 are making it difficult for our guests to plan their trips. We have therefore decided to temporarily amend our cancellation conditions. For all new bookings, the following applies with immediate effect:
 
If travel restrictions are implemented by your local, Egyptian, Maldivian or Indonesian governments due to COVID 19 (Corona virus) causing you to be unable to travel then the following will apply:
 
  1. Any new booking that is made for travel between 10 March and 30 April is affected you will be allowed to cancel and get a full refund.
     
  2. Any new booking that is made for travel between 01 May and 30 June is affected you will be allowed to cancel or be rebooked free of charge up to 14 days before arrival.

Komodo - So much more than great diving

| No TrackBacks

By Florent Delente

Around Komodo, Sangeang Volcano with its Hot Rocks dive site is a must see. As Emperor Raja Laut sails nearby you can admire this almost 2,000 metre-high smoking volcano. The village of Bonto is located in a stunning bay with the black sand area being one of the best spots for a world-class night dive. Many critters inhabit these rich waters; cuttlefish, octopus, bobtail squid, tiny frogfish as well as many different types of nudibranch and other invertebrates.
