Meet our NEW Maldives flagship - Emperor Explorer

| No TrackBacks

 

Emperor Explorer, Maldives

 

From this August, our new flagship liveaboard, Emperor Explorer, will be offering contemporary and spacious accommodation where our top-notch service is standard.

At 42 metres, she effortlessly accommodates 26 guests in 13 well-appointed ensuite cabins all with air-con. Add to that her Spa, spacious diving and relaxation areas and you are set to be captivated with her high standards in liveaboard Maldives holidays.

Emperor Explorer will operate 7-day itineraries chosen specifically to suit the best seasons in the Maldives with longer 10-day trips focussing on dive sites further afield. All diving is done from her large dhoni (tender), giving more living space on board and getting you to the best dive spot every time.

As the flagship, Emperor Explorer will offer up to four dives a day and, as with all Emperor liveaboards, NITROX is free of charge. A complimentary glass of wine is served with dinner; with Emperor's transparent pricing policy there are no hidden extras on board.

Prices start from / £1759 / €1979 / $2295.

This happy addition to the Emperor family takes our Maldives fleet to six liveaboards.

The brand new Emperor-managed dive centre at You & Me in Raa Atoll brings the number of resort-based diving centres to two, along with Emperor Divers Laamu, Gan (Laamu Atoll).

You & Me in Raa Atoll is for adults only and perfectly set up for all things diving. We are also managing the state-of-the-art Water Sports Centre with a range of activities for divers and non-divers alike.

This brand new 5-star resort is opening early 2019 and is just 20 minutes by speedboat from Ifuru domestic airport or a 45 minute seaplane ride from Male’s international airport.

Divers can enjoy channel, tila and wall diving for all levels, colourful soft and hard corals, sharks, rays and large schools of reef fish, mantas and feeding stations.

Our Dive Centre is right on the arrival jetty with direct access to the lagoon. This is also where the dive dhonis (boats) leave for an exciting range of dive sites, which suit all levels of experience. For the more skilled there is wall and current diving with eagle rays, grey reef sharks, tunas, snappers, mantas and more.

You can opt for 2-tank and full day trips as well as a full range of PADI courses from beginner to professional level. You will find brand new Scuba Pro rental equipment, aluminium cylinders, equipment room, rinse facilities and a teaching area.

Emperor Maldives consistently offers value, variety, quality, service, professionalism, easy booking, local knowledge, flexibility and fast response to guest requests, as seen in the numerous 5 Star Feefo guest reviews.

You can also choose from five, soon to be six, Maldives liveaboards for ‘further afield’ diving where Emperor’s policy promises no hidden extras on board.

And if Dyson wasn't enough - how about some shark action? It wasn't just Elphinstone getting in on the act. This is Shouni Soraya and a baby shark playing in the blue. Thank you to Sanne for the video.

Best of the Maldives
When? All year round
This is the Best of the Maldives and it delivers exactly that. This is where you dive the best and most famous dive sites of the Maldives in a week of wonderful liveaboard diving across Male and Ari atolls.

Deep South & Southern Sharks
When? February & March
These months are the best times to sail to the southerly Maldivian atolls and dive into the shark action in these out-of-the-way southern dive sites between Huvadhoo and Addu (Seenu) Atolls.

Hanifaru & North
When? July - October
This runs around the New Moon phase when tidal ranges give a greater flow of plankton into the world famous Hanifaru Bay, where the massive majestic mantas venture in for a feeding frenzy each year.

Pelagic Magic
When? April - July
Pelagic Magic gets you face to face with the famous whale sharks of Ari Atoll. As this itinerary devotes more time here, you are certain to get your whaleshark fix at Maamagili.

Sharktastic
When? January - April
Channel dives of the eastern coast of the Maldives are the main order of the day. These Kandus attract grey reef sharks, dog tooth tuna and eagle rays as standard but look out into the blue and you never know what surprises await.

South Central Atolls
When? January - March
Looking for action? Speedy drift dives, mantas, sharks and diving several atolls? Our guides and crew make it their business to make sure you see mantas and sharks as well as potential magical creatures coming out from the depths of the blue.

Central Explorer
When? May - October
Escape the crowds of the northern atolls and hang out in some of the least developed atolls in the Maldives. Laamu, Thaa and Meemu have just 4 resorts between them and lots of uninhabited islands. What does this mean? Reduced competition for pristine dive sites (and there's lots to choose from) and less crowded.

Emperor Atoll | Small yet perfectly formed

0416 Emperor Atoll moored with dhoni 1 (Medium) (2).jpg

Divers simply love Emperor Atoll because, with a maximum of 12 guests, our two guides make sure you get the most from your trip. A comfortable boat, she measures 26 metres, has 6 twin/double ensuite cabins, each with a full-size double bed with a single bunk bed above, air-con and fan.

AT A GLANCE
The Maldives 'Divers' boat with no more than 12 guests on board
With only one deck, she is more stable with less 'roll'
Two guides to help with divers gaining experience
Dive centres and small groups can charter the boat exclusively for themselves
If you are a group of experienced divers then our guides can arrange more challenging dives for you. Please contact us for 'full charter rates'
FREE Nitrox

"Emperor Atoll is different as she's small and much more personal than the bigger boats. With a maximum of only 12 divers, it's also a lot more fun in the water."

to share guests' words with you

0817 Serenity sunset.jpg

Thanks to our guests who take the time to feedback their Emperor experience! It means a great deal to be able to pass these on to all the team and crew.

These are for Emperor Maldives liveaboards but there are so many more for our Emperor family at Feefo.

Robert Brown | Emperor Voyager
I was very pleased with all aspects or my liveaboard tour of the Maldives. The crew, guides, food and accommodation were all excellent. I wouldn't hesitate to book another liveaboard with Emperor in the future.

Trusted Customer | Emperor Serenity
Utterly outstanding trip! The boat, Serenity, was impeccable, the staff on the boat were fantastic, attentive, polite and lovely characters. The dive guides were impeccable, Gabriel is incredibly experienced and so much fun to talk to and to learn from. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone.

Ashley Sutherland | Emperor Serenity
Highly, highly recommended!! Couldn't fault anything, amazing service from all of the team!

Norman Donachie | Emperor Serenity
The best liveaboard. I could not find a fault in anything. Boat, cabin, bathroom, meals spot on. Guides and crew so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Excellent service.

Trusted Customer | Emperor Voyager
A brilliant trip. Everything about this trip went well. The organisation was efficient. The dive masters and instructors were experienced and friendly in their approach, coping brilliantly with a group of divers ranging from very experienced to the relatively new to the sport. Particular praise to Chris for his leadership. And we saw everything - whale sharks, manta rays, nursing sharks. Just brilliant.
