Fab video from Emperor Virgo in the Maldives

| No TrackBacks

Thanks to Andreas Schumacher for this super video taken from Emperor Virgo on his Maldives 'Sharktastic' trip recently.

Andreas sent us this little report too;

"Starting at North Malé and then South Malé before going further south down to Vaavu and Meemu. We cruised west to South Ari, Nord Ari and back to Malé.

We had some good shark action on almost every dive, greys reef sharks, nurse sharks, blacktip and whitetip reef sharks and a whale shark out in the blue. Schools of jacks, batfish, barracudas, eagle rays and some turtles but also lots of small stuff like ghost-pipe fish, nudibranchs, a leaf fish and of course plenty of anemones with their clownfish and its cleaner shrimps.

The week on Emperor Virgo was such fun! Great dive guides and crew! Excellent company.”

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."
