As the flagship, Emperor Explorer will offer up to four dives a day and, as with all Emperor liveaboards, NITROX is free of charge. A complimentary glass of wine is served with dinner; with Emperor's transparent pricing policy there are no hidden extras on board.

Prices start from / £1759 / €1979 / $2295.

This happy addition to the Emperor family takes our Maldives fleet to six liveaboards.

And if Dyson wasn't enough - how about some shark action? It wasn't just Elphinstone getting in on the act. This is Shouni Soraya and a baby shark playing in the blue. Thank you to Sanne for the video.

When is the best time to dive the seven itineraries we offer for the Maldives - and why?
Read on and sprinkle a little sparkle in 2019.

Best of the Maldives
When? All year round
This is the Best of the Maldives and it delivers exactly that. This is where you dive the best and most famous dive sites of the Maldives in a week of wonderful liveaboard diving across Male and Ari atolls.

Deep South & Southern Sharks
When? February & March
These months are the best times to sail to the southerly Maldivian atolls and dive into the shark action in these out-of-the-way southern dive sites between Huvadhoo and Addu (Seenu) Atolls.

Hanifaru & North
When? July - October
This runs around the New Moon phase when tidal ranges give a greater flow of plankton into the world famous Hanifaru Bay, where the massive majestic mantas venture in for a feeding frenzy each year.

Pelagic Magic
When? April - July
Pelagic Magic gets you face to face with the famous whale sharks of Ari Atoll. As this itinerary devotes more time here, you are certain to get your whaleshark fix at Maamagili.

Sharktastic
When? January - April
Channel dives of the eastern coast of the Maldives are the main order of the day. These Kandus attract grey reef sharks, dog tooth tuna and eagle rays as standard but look out into the blue and you never know what surprises await.

South Central Atolls
When? January - March
Looking for action? Speedy drift dives, mantas, sharks and diving several atolls? Our guides and crew make it their business to make sure you see mantas and sharks as well as potential magical creatures coming out from the depths of the blue.

Central Explorer
When? May - October
Escape the crowds of the northern atolls and hang out in some of the least developed atolls in the Maldives. Laamu, Thaa and Meemu have just 4 resorts between them and lots of uninhabited islands. What does this mean? Reduced competition for pristine dive sites (and there's lots to choose from) and less crowded.

| No TrackBacks

0416 Emperor Atoll moored with dhoni 1 (Medium) (2).jpg

Divers simply love Emperor Atoll because, with a maximum of 12 guests, our two guides make sure you get the most from your trip. A comfortable boat, she measures 26 metres, has 6 twin/double ensuite cabins, each with a full-size double bed with a single bunk bed above, air-con and fan.

AT A GLANCE
The Maldives 'Divers' boat with no more than 12 guests on board
With only one deck, she is more stable with less 'roll'
Two guides to help with divers gaining experience
Dive centres and small groups can charter the boat exclusively for themselves
If you are a group of experienced divers then our guides can arrange more challenging dives for you. Please contact us for 'full charter rates'
FREE Nitrox

"Emperor Atoll is different as she's small and much more personal than the bigger boats. With a maximum of only 12 divers, it's also a lot more fun in the water."
