"Fabulous! Boat great, food THE BEST (and I've done 30 liveaboards in the last 17 years)...those desserts, to die for. Dive guide Mustafa excellent, diving very good - I even did some sites new to me. A GREAT, GREAT trip. Planning Asmaa for next October. I'll talk to you after New Year." (Anonymous)

Join Duxy and Emperor for 2018 Red Sea trips

| No TrackBacks

Duxy Profile Pic High Res-6260164.jpeg

Emperor Divers has teamed up with Paul ‘Duxy’ Duxfield for 2018 to bring you some relaxing trips suited to divers who like flexibility and, of course, photographers and videographers.

Duxy has been at the forefront of underwater photography and travel for many years and brings with him a light-hearted take on the diving world and how it has changed the way we now take underwater photographs and video.

A regular speaker at dive shows and dive clubs, Duxy loves nothing more than to share his knowledge and enviable experience with divers of all abilities.

“Getting beginners started on the route to rewarding pictures and sharing advice with anyone who wants to learn is such a great feeling,” says Duxy.

He now combines his time helping people to choose and use cameras, housings, strobes and lenses, escorting trips and running workshops around the world.

His own pictures have illustrated blogs and advertising campaigns and he is currently contributing to Scuba Diver magazine with a regular monthly column.

With more than 40 escorted trips under his belt to the Red Sea and further afield, Duxy continues to develop new ways to pass on knowledge and share his love of diving and underwater photography to divers.

We have two trips planned on two of our magnificent Red Sea liveaboards with at least three ‘open deck’ days a week. Open deck diving means you are free to dive with your buddy between 6am to 6pm at times that suit you. Flexibility is the key so you can capture that killer shot or simply enjoy a lie in! On both itineraries there will be three guided ‘excursion dives’, even when open deck is in place, from either the two Emperor guides and/or with Duxy himself. Photo, video, processing and production advice will be delivered by Duxy.

Sample itineraries - if the weather plays ball – are below.

Emperor Serenity

 

Emperor Serenity, Maldives
"A wonderful experience. The boat and staff were absolutely brilliant. Our cabin was so spacious it's the first time that I have come home and found our large shower to feel small! As my wife was a none diver the staff went out of their way to make sure her time on board was up to her expectations even making sure she had a guide while snorkeling. I must say a great thanks to Yakie and Nudia both run a very welcoming ship, in fact all your staff were exceptional. If we come back to the Maldives in the future we know which ship we will be on!"
Martyn Demers

Marsa Alam, Red Sea
"Everything was spot on. Nothing is a problem. Thanks for a great time."
Peter Smith

Emperor Voyager, Maldives
"Very good value for money. Brilliant guides (Chris,& Andrea,Messi). Lovely boat. Great staff. Caring staff. Very good dhoni and crew. Good food. Comfortable beds. Fair alcohol prices."
David Flanders

Marsa Alam, Red Sea
"Staff, dive guides, food, service, atmosphere. Everything was perfect!"

Luke Hammond is our NEC Dive Show winner

| No TrackBacks

Luke Hammond

 

Luke Hammond won our NEC Dive Show competition by answering "What's the name of the new Emperor Indonesia liveaboard?" Answer: Emperor Raja Laut. Luke has won two five-day dive packs for an Emperor Red Sea resort of his choice worth up to £425.

Says Luke, "I'm a 23 year old outdoor pursuits instructor and graduate of Outdoor Education from the University of Cumbria. It was while studying for my degree that I took up diving; while sitting in a lecture theatre on an average Tuesday afternoon we were given a presentation on the university's upcoming Red Sea dive trip. My best friend Lewis (already a diver) and I looked at each other in an 'are you thinking what I'm thinking' way and from that moment on I was hooked.

Since then I've completed all my training in the UK with the wonderful people at Fins Scuba in Preston, rising to the level of PADI Master Scuba Diver, and yes- I did that Red Sea university trip!"

Enjoy your prize Luke! And thanks to everyone who entered; you're all still very welcome to join us.
