The tale of the eagle ray ... with no tail

| No TrackBacks

by Frank Gaona, Dive Centre Manager at Emperor Divers You & Me

Eagle ray video

 

"The 'tail' of the eagle ray - or not in this case! A few days ago in one of my favourite spots that we named Broken Rock, we were super lucky to find a beautiful and amazing eagle ray that was very curious as you can see in the video.

Eagle rays are a group of cartilaginous fishes in the family Myliobatidae, consisting mostly of large species living in the open ocean rather than on the sea bottom. They feed on molluscs and crustaceans, crushing their shells with their flattened teeth. Devil and manta rays filter plankton from the water.

They are excellent swimmers and are able to breach the water up to several metres above the surface. Compared with other rays, they have long tails and well-defined, rhomboidal bodies. They are ovoviviparous, giving birth to up to six young at a time.

Did you notice that it's missing it's tail? Come and dive with us in Broken Rock and let's see if you can get as lucky too!"

Find out why Berk Celebi loves Emperor Asmaa

| No TrackBacks

 

Manta, St John's Reef

 

Berk Celebi was so impressed with Emperor Asmaa, the team and the diving. Here's what he said.

"Simply the best. This is by far the best team I've ever met in the Red Sea. If anything goes wrong, they do their best to make it right. They make you feel like all their staff are working individually for you to make your holiday the best one ever. Food is awesome, hospitality is on the top level. Meet them once and you'll never look for another."

Thanks Berk! And a little reminder that we have some super offers on Emperor Asmaa right here.

 

 

 

Did someone say dugongs and dolphins?

| No TrackBacks

 

Emperor Divers Marsa Alam

 

Emperor Amy is back from dry dock and looking rather good at Emperor Divers Marsa Alam.

What's more, her lucky guests got to snorkel with a dugong and dolphins on their surface interval at Trombi earlier this week. Thanks to Joyce for the photos.

 

White tip sharks video

 

This is why we use reef hooks; in strong currents or surging water the marine life becomes accustomed to divers being in their environment.

By us staying in one place maybe then they do not perceive us as a threat, becoming more bold, like these two white tip reef sharks coming within two metres of us.

We are always thankful for amazing close encounters like these and being able to share them with you. Every day of every week should be just like this.

 

 

 

New Red Sea itinerary: North & Easy

 

North & Easy
(from Hurghada | May to September)
Sha'ab El Erg - Ras Mohamed - Straits of Tiran - Dunraven - SS Thistlegorm - Straits of Gubal

Discount for non-divers: €150 per person.

Designed to showcase some of the highlights of the Northern Red Sea at a relaxed pace whether diving or snorkelling, it's ideal for both divers and non-divers. It's also the best time of year for dolphin spotting and the world class fish schooling event at Ras Mohamed.

We spend more time moored at each location and less time travelling from dive site to dive site; perfectly designed for the divers who like to take things easy, the photo enthusiasts looking for more dive time to capture that perfect photo opportunity or for non-divers looking to soak up the scenery, both below and above the water.
