From recent guest, Erick Miralbell Estepa, in Barcelona...

"Thanks to Emperor Serenity Crew for an incredible week! (16/04- 22/04 2018).

We have spent some unforgettable days with friends (the ones we took and the ones we have made there) in the Emperor Serenity.

A fabulous crew, they have gone out of their way to make the trip to our liking, they have done everything possible to make us enjoy the wonders of the Maldives: sharks (white tips, black tips, grey, nurse, whale shark), mantas, eagles, turtles, Napoleon, etc.

Special mention for Nuria and Yaqui, great professionals, and amazing people! Thank you both for your patience and dedication!

If luck ever brings us back to Maldives, it will surely be accompanied by Emperor Divers!"

Seriously stunning images from one of our amazing guests Johan Amerijckx. Look at the vivid colours and fabulous marine life here in the Red Sea right at this very minute. Just the place to be for a helping of happiness.

PS Johan used a Canon G16 in a Nauticam housing, 2 INON D-2000 strobes and a INON (UWL-S100) wide-angle lens for these images. Nice work Johan!

Come and dive the Komodo National Park; world renowned for its excellent quality and variety of diving.

In the north we have the black sands of the Sangeang Volcano with its critters and bubble flows and the reefs around Gili Banta. The south provides cooler temperatures with manta action and nutrient rich reefs with ocean flow from the Indian Ocean. The central section has reefs and small islands teeming with life fed by currents running between the islands of Komodo and Rinca.

Add to this the chance to see the famous Komodo Dragon in its natural habitat, beautiful beaches, look-outs to climb and you have a paradise both below and above the water.

Dive Komodo from the romance and comfort of Emperor Raja Laut – just 12 guests in all!

Dolphins Red
                                  Sea video

 

It's everyone's bucket list encounter; swimming with wild dolphins. And it happens more often than you might think with Emperor Divers Red Sea.

Most weeks our safari boats in the North and South manage to see these beautiful animals in their natural environment. Just the other week on Emperor Superior guest Aofie talked to our guide, Roberto, what it was like for her - and we have a few dolphins to show you too!

» This way for the dolphins!

Amanda Cullen joined Emperor Raja Laut for our Raja Ampat, 14-21 March 2018, trip and this is what she said...
 
"I had an amazing week on the boat. Being a girl traveling on my own I could not have felt more comfortable. Everyone working on the boat was absolutely amazing and could not do enough for us. They really went above and beyond. 
 
The boat was immaculate and the food was delicious. Being a vegetarian the chef made sure to make me such delicious alternatives to meat. The rooms were cleaned every morning.
 
I had an absolutely wonderful experience and everyone working on the boat really contributed to that!
 
Really looking forward to doing my next liveaboard. Also divebooker were brilliant to book from. They were very prompt and helpful."
 
 
 

Emperor Maldives helps identify whale shark!

| No TrackBacks

0318 whale shark video.jpg

 

Recently we told you about the sighting from Emperor Orion in Huvadhoo Atoll of a ‘new’ whale shark and have been working with the Maldives Whale Shark Project team to get the identity of her and to give her a name.

Result! She is now called Dhahi, meaning ‘glutton’. This is the fourth time she has been sighted; the first in 2015 then 2016, 2017 and from Emperor Orion this year. The interesting thing is that every time, she has been sighted in the same spot at Huvadhoo Atoll in February or March.

Emperor boats, especially Emperor Orion and Emperor Serenity, help Maldives Whale Shark Project a lot with their research to help identify them. Some whale sharks have been sighted more than 100 times.

Thanks to Emperor dive guide, Gabriel, for the fabulous video.

Emperor Sharm El Sheikh - OPEN for business

| No TrackBacks

 

0318 sharm collage 2 (Large).jpg

 

We have great news!
Our dive centre has reopened in the iconic Red Sea dive
capital of Sharm El Sheikh.

Located directly in Naama Bay, we’re close to the jetty and ready to take you to dive incredible sites such as Tiran and Ras Mohamed.

“Sharm diving is at its absolute best for decades as dive sites have had a few years to recover from the crowds. Stunning hard and soft corals and amazing marine life encounters abound in some of the clearest waters the Red Sea has to offer,” says General Manager, Luke Atkinson. “The fish schooling event of Ras Mohamed in summer is truly world class and the chance to experience it with diver numbers similar to the 1990s should not be missed.”

As we are sharing with the Werner Lau/Sinai Divers centre in Helnan Marina Hotel, our guests will have access to a great house reef in Naama Bay and top class facilities as well as being close to a range of hotels for convenience. Divers’ favourite boats, Emperor Shorouk and Emperor Marcus, will be running regularly to the amazing local sites and, of course, to Ras Mohamed and Tiran. Our small instructor team will be headed up by the familiar face of Elise, an Emperor Sharm legend.

Direct flights to Sharm come from Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Switzerland and Austria with carriers such as TUIfly, FTI and Germania. Indirect flights via Istanbul with Pegasus and Turkish airlines are excellent for divers due to a generous baggage allowance, which is also the case with Egyptair via Cairo.

Make 2018 the year for you to come and dive in Sharm with Emperor; trust us, it will be the best decision you make!
