Talk about value for money. Not only will you reap the benefits of sharing photo tips with Paul 'Duxy' Duxfield, but now the legendary Lawson Wood is on the same trip!

Lawson has made his passion his career and you can tap into some of the passion this November. He has published over 50 books including the Underwater Guide to the Red Sea, so he knows a thing or two. He is also a co-founder of the Marine Conservation Society, found of the first Marine Reserve at St Abbs and Eyemouth in Scotland and made history in becoming the first person to be a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society - and there's a whole lot more but we'll leave that to Lawson to share with you on the trip.

One last thing, Lawson has lived and worked in the Red Sea for many years so you can imagine the depth of knowledge and tales he has to tell. Join Duxy and Lawson on this unique trip - who knows when you'll get another chance!

Read why this part of the world holds such an appeal
with words straight from a recent guest - thanks Sherry!

The Komodo National Park is world renowned for the excellent quality and variety of diving. In the north we have the black sands of the Sangeang Volcano with its critters and bubble flows and the reefs around Gili Banta. The south provides cooler temperatures with manta action and nutrient rich reefs with ocean flow from the Indian Ocean. The central section give you reefs and small islands teeming with life fed by the currents running between the islands of Komodo and Rinca.

Add to this the chance to see the famous Komodo Dragon in its natural habitat, beautiful beaches, look-outs to climb and you have a paradise both below and above the water.

Komodo

 

Our recent guest, Sherry Wright, loved her diving holiday in Komodo from Emperor Raja Laut...here's what she had to say:

"The Emperor Raja Laut is newly renovated and is in beautiful shape. The day-to-day operations including dives were run smoothly. The crew were all really helpful and friendly.

All the crew took turns helping with entering and exiting the dinghies, handling the equipment, and making our dives great. Sophie and Flo were superb hosts and divemasters. I loved that they sat with us for meals and hung around chatting with us when they didn't have tasks to do. I felt like they became friends.

My luggage including dive gear all got left behind in Bali and I was supplied with very new rental gear. I felt very supported as people chipped in to lend me things that I normally would have had. As for the diving, the sites were great! The reefs were some of the healthiest I've seen. Flo, Sophie, and Downey were very clear and specific about dive plans, entries, dealing with currents, etc. I was in Sophie's group, and I was amazed and grateful for her ability to spot the smallest little macro creatures and still keep an eye on the blue.

I had a fabulous week and highly recommend the boat and the Komodo itinerary."

Sharks of the Red Sea

 

Recently on Emperor Echo there were some pretty special encounters, showing why the Red Sea is just outperforming itself right now - and that takes some doing!

Thanks to guest, Dora, for these great images.

Where was this, we hear you cry? It was the Red Sea Sharks itinerary, which is flexible in location so we go where the recent shark action has been. All these images were from The Brothers.
