Veronique Geerts, Marsa Alam
"I would like to say that this company is more than professional. My instructor is very good, I really trust him and look where I am now...I really didn't expect that I could do this. In the beginning I was afraid, but my first teacher taught me the right way...After the first day, I was happy that we have found your diving centre.
Second day, also the instructor very professional. At my first dive the sea was hard and I wanted to give up but he made me feel safety with him and so we started our dives. It was amazing, wow. I am very happy."

Sjoerd van Tuijl, Marsa Alam
"We came back to this dive center for the fifth time...I think that says enough! Great service! Great people!"

Jason Marley, Marsa Alam
"We had a fantastic week diving with Emperor in Marsa Alam. The staff were friendly and attentive and the diving was great. The crew on the boats were also great, incredibly helpful and the food was amazing. A great bunch of people and a fun week's diving. Can't wait to return."

Kohly Kohlmeyer, Marsa Alam
"Wir waren rundum zufrieden. Ich werde euch weiterempfehlen."

Yvette Li Hanney
"Emperor Divers 5 Star! Have been diving with Emperor Divers for over 20 years, wouldn't choose another company. Service, safety, dive masters and of course the dive sites all 5 star."

Emperor Divers El Gouna has won this for the four times whilst Emperor Divers Marsa Alam has won the award for the FIFTH year in a row.

To qualify, a business must maintain an overall TripAdvisor bubble rating of at least four out of five, have a minimum number of reviews and must have been listed on TripAdvisor for at least 12 months.
 
 “We’re very proud of the teams at Marsa Alam and El Gouna for winning the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence. Many thanks to all our guests who took the time to complete a review,” said Luke Atkinson, General Manager for Emperor Divers Red Sea. “Being recognised like this always creates a feel-good factor, especially when it comes from those very people who enjoyed the diving and service with us.”

PEGASUS 'RELOADED'!

| No TrackBacks

Freshly back from dry dock our Emperor Pegasus is shiny and new. On top of that there have been some improvements to enhance your comfort:


- New storage system for 100 tanks without the need to have them standing around on the floor of the dive deck.


- New hangers for suits over the diving platform, so those are out of your way when setting up your gear.


- More space on the dive deck by removing hatches and storage boxes, plus 4 new spaces for diver and gear.


- Enlarged sundeck for better relaxing between dives & snorkel excursions.

​But a picture paints a thousand words, so see for yourself! Lots more photos on our El Gouna Facebook page too

Located in the beautiful Abu Tig Marina and next to the 4* adults-only Ocean View Hotel, our popular dive centre is operated as a joint venture with partners, Blue Brothers Diving.

Amidst the yachts of the marina our boat moors up each day just 50m from our centre and the hotel.

Most of our diving takes place on our day boat, Pegasus, where we offer 2-3 dives a day with third dives on request. Our Instructor-team (Moni, Mahmoud, Tiger and Elliot) are happy to show you around and on board we take care of all your diving needs. All speak English, German, and some other languages. If you so prefer, Tiger will even chat with you in Nubian!

Requests or questions? Daniela (administration) and Tobi (operations manager) are always happy to help and advise.

On board Pegasus, our eager-to-help boat crew, under Captain Waleed, takes the best care of you. Enjoy the varied, tasty lunch on board and each morning you will receive a fresh bottle of water with unlimited refills from a cooling tank; primarily to encourage drinking enough while diving but also to reduce plastic waste. This new systems saves about 20,000 plastic bottles a year!

Around El Gouna you find more than 50 beautiful diving spots ranging from aquarium-style sandy shallows to steep, richly overgrown drop offs. Rich in coral and marine life, especially the northern spots which are unavailable from busy Hurghada, these are in fabulous shape.

Our weekly schedule rotates taking into account weather conditions but some spots are cherished more than others such as the Siyul reef, a richly overgrown frame reef to the north; El Gilwa with its shallow bays and pinnacles, or Poseidon Garden, a huge stone-coral garden close to the reef Shab El Erg with its famous dolphin groups. Without exaggeration we easily have 2-3 chance dolphin encounters every week.

Apart from the beautiful reefs and coral gardens quite a number of famous wrecks are close by; Abu Nuhas even has four wrecks, mere metres from each other: Carnatic, Crisoula K, Giannis D and Kimon M.  This is diving for divers! Do 3 out of 4 in just a day; perfect to get your wreck specialty as well.

If you like it deep and dark, Rosalie Moller is your wreck of choice and even her famous sister-ship SS Thistlegorm is available for ‘early birds’. (Please remember that all special trips are weather dependent and charged extra on your diving days).

On top of all that, we also offer half-day snorkelling, diving and dolphin spotting trips from our comfortable speedboat. You name it, we might have it; just ask!

Finally, if you stay in El Gouna then we offer free transfers from and to your hotel included in your booking. For those staying in Hurghada, we have some great value private transfer options to get you from hotel to dive centre and back without delay.

Happy El Gouna diving!

Wow! A huge round of applause for the team at Emperor Divers El Gouna for this glowing feedback from a recent guest, Yath.
"My fiancé and I recently dived with your company in mid-November and wanted to thank you for the great experience we had. 
I had booked a skills refresher and 5 dives with Emperor Divers as a gift for my fiance's birthday. We were both quite rusty from having only dived on one holiday before, and I, in particular, was nervous as I didn't feel confident even after qualifying. 
With Emperor Divers, I could not have dreamed of a more patient and supportive environment for us. We experienced 3 different dive guides (Tiger, Tamer & David), and all 3 were fantastic! Tiger sorted us out with a camera to get some great shots underwater. As I was only qualified up to Scuba Diver level, we had booked a private guide, David, and I would say that he was probably the best investment of our trip. He was patient, gave me specific goals to focus on during each dive and by the end of the trip I felt ready to take on the Open Water course. We had such a great time that we booked onto snorkelling with dolphins with Emperor on the morning before we flew back and Tamer worked hard to make sure we found those dolphins! All in all - a 5 star dive resort."
