Nobody says it better than those who have been there and done it. "world class service'. Direct from Feefo …

"The entire staff made our stay aboard the Emperor Serenity top notch! Every minute of every day was a pleasure. They went far above and beyond their duties. Shareef, Abusy, Haleem, Dhonbe, Chef John, Abdul, Raheem, Chattu and Madu were excellent as well as were our dive guides, Yaqui, Nuria, Tuna and Muaz! The dhoni crew, Saeedh, Nasir and Ameen were very professional and courteous. I would highly recommend this trip to everyone! Thank you for your world class service!"

 


Maria Tello & Gabriel Hermida.jpg

Hi and Hola
 
We are Gabriel and Maria, the new dive guides for Emperor Maldives.

We are from Argentina, started our dive careers 17 years ago and soon became PADI Instructors, opening a dive centre in Buenos Aires, Argentina; however, our aim was always to work on liveaboards.
 
Having been managers in large corporations, I (Maria) have a Bachelor of Marketing and I (Gabriel) am a Systems Engineer. When we started our diving courses we discovered our passion for scuba diving and decided to leave everything behind to follow our dream.
 
We have dived in Argentina, Brazil, Cayman Islands, Cuba, Thailand, Sipadan, Egypt, Sudan and Maldives. We moved to Egypt in 2006 and have been working on the Egyptian and Sudanese Red Sea for eight years.
 
With a huge experience on liveaboards, we have done more than 300 trips with more than 5000 dives logged and worked on well-known Red Sea fleet companies such as Emperor Divers, Sea Serpent, Blu Sudan and Blue o Two Maldives. We are PADI, SDI and TDI Technical Instructors and I (Gabriel) love to dive with my Kiss rebreather whilst surrounded by sharks.
 
We love our job, taking care of the marine life and sharing our knowledge with guests. We use every dive to clean a bit the reef, if it is possible, to help the environment.
 
Whilst working in Sudan, we promoted laws against shark fishing and reef awareness. As a result, the Sudanese government opened new marine protected parks and created a law against shark finning.
 
We love guiding and spotting the small and big stuff. Dive guiding is not our job, it's our passion. We are happy to come back to the Emperor family and to meet our friends in the Maldives again whilst looking forward to making new ones with our guests.
 
Come an discover the delights of civing the Maldives with us just as soon as you can.

unbenannt-0233 shark (Medium).jpg

Emperor Maldives has new exciting dive trips to sail to the southerly Maldives atolls and dive into the shark action in these out-of-the-way southern dive sites between Huvadhoo and Laamu.

From February to April, spend time away from the madding crowds and dive Foammulah and Huvadhoo on the lookout for the Indian Ocean's larger residents; tiger sharks, silver tips, grey reef sharks and whale sharks.

Guests can choose to travel either from Male to Huvadhoo to join their liveaboard or from Huvadhoo to Male. Expect to meet tiger and silver tip sharks around Foamulah. At Huvadhoo, one of the deepest lagoons in the Maldives, the currents are ideal for even more shark sightings including hopefully whale sharks and silkies, hammerheads, tiger and grey sharks spotted most of the time. There are swift channel dives with several kandus; Vilingilli, Nilandhoo, Mareehaa and Kondeey, as well as reef thila dives; Gazeera and Vaadhoo.

This itinerary suits experienced divers (100+ dives) looking for 'away from it all and different' diving with quite a focus on drift diving.

Liveaboards operating these routes are Emperor Virgo and Emperor Leo, both with fine accommodation and service as standard. Included is full board, free Nitrox, local transfers.

A video showing the amazing diving on this route can be seen here. 

Non-divers are very welcome and get free snorkelling equipment + $50 voucher to spend on board.

The 7-night trip is £1978.80/€2328.00 per person sharing a standard twin berth cabin. 10-night trips are also available. Prices do not include international flights.

Emperor Maldives consistently offers value, variety, quality, service, professionalism, easy booking, handy local knowledge, flexibility and fast response to guest requests as well as popular purpose-built liveaboards.
