There’s no need to repeat how unprecedented the Covid 19 pandemic is. The effects are everywhere. We’d like to thank those guests who have been affected by the travel chaos for their understanding and patience and to our many friends who have sent their best wishes.
We will get through this. The Emperor family have all stepped up to ensure we’ll be there to provide you with some great diving in the future. We’re all uncertain about when “normal” will return but we all know it will. So, we understand there is no way anyone wants to pay a deposit for a holiday when they can’t be sure it’ll happen as planned.
Our solution is to let you hold spaces on our boats for FREE – no deposit, just an agreement to be fair with each other.
Contact us either at or via your favourite dive travel operator and we’ll hold any date from 01 July 2020 onwards – no deposit required. Once the travel bans are lifted and “normal“ service returns, we’ll ask you to pay our low deposit of EUR 200 / GBP 180 / USD 250 per person and then the final balance at the normal time. Should you decide you can’t travel as planned, then no harm done, we’ll just cancel your place and hope to be of service to you at some other time.
Because our lives have been “paused” by Covid 19, many 2020 bookings have re-booked for late 2020 and into 2021: we hope this offer helps you plan ahead and hold your place with no risk.
We're aware that travel restrictions imposed by governments to contain COVID 19 are making it difficult for our guests to plan their trips. We have therefore decided to temporarily amend our cancellation conditions. For all new bookings, the following applies with immediate effect:
If travel restrictions are implemented by your local, Egyptian, Maldivian or Indonesian governments due to COVID 19 (Corona virus) causing you to be unable to travel then the following will apply:
  1. Any new booking that is made for travel between 10 March and 30 April is affected you will be allowed to cancel and get a full refund.
  2. Any new booking that is made for travel between 01 May and 30 June is affected you will be allowed to cancel or be rebooked free of charge up to 14 days before arrival.

Top Tip: Flight Match Option
January is the cheapest time of the year for flights and dive sites are at their quietest. Take advantage of one of these two sailings and get yourself some winter diving and sun. Daytime air temperature is in the mid-twenties; water temperature is still around 22 degrees and there's a good chance we will have many of the dive sites all to ourselves.

'Safari to the southern Red Sea aboard Emperor Elite'
Have just returned from a fantastic trip aboard the Emperor Elite sailing from Port Ghalib down south to St. Johns, taking in Fury Shoals before returning via Elphinstone Reef. Dived with Oceanic White Tipped Reef shark at Elphinstone. The crew and the boat were excellent. Our grateful thanks to Hanni a superb dive guide and to his colleague Rami.

'5 stars is not enough!'
From arrival on Emperor Superior, we were welcomed and we felt right at home! The boat is wonderful, the dive guides (Sonia, Tracy and Boody) were the best, the crew is super service oriented! Good briefings, amazing extra info session by Sonia, oh and I haven't even mentioned the food. Sooooo yummie! Thank guys (and girls), you are the best! We will certainly be back!

'Wow exceeded my expectations take me back'
My 2nd trip with Emperor the first was last year on the northern reefs and wrecks and this year South and St Johns. Two different boats the Elite and the Echo both well kitted out. All the Emperor crew and staff can't do enough for you from the dive guides to the cabin boys. My room must have been tidied after nearly every dive.
The food was better than any all-inclusive I have been on.
The dive guides knowledge is second to none (special mention to Amr what a guy).
The administration with booking and the payment for your trip was easy and smooth.
Doubt I would use anybody else for the Red Sea.
Safety is advised and enforced if necessary but you are still allowed to dive within your limits and qualifications My last trip fulfilled lots of bucket list items.
Dived with the Oceanic white tip numerous times dolphins turtles Napoleon Wrasse Spanish dancers and more hard and soft corals than you can imagine.
Hope to see you soon.

The curious Longimanus shark video

| No TrackBacks


Longimanus are such inquisitive sharks, which means divers often get the closest natural shark encounter they will ever have.

It's shark season in the Red Sea and guest Wayne on Emperor Echo took this sharktastic video of a classic encounter.

Not so little whale shark at Little Brother

| No TrackBacks


Whale shark, Brothers


Whale shark!

Red Sea safari guide Saad told us, "There were actually two of them at Little Brother. One big one, maybe 7 metres long, and this one a bit smaller. Most guests got to see one or the other on the North plateau as they were so shallow, less than 10 metres deep!"

There's an unwritten rule, no photo, no shark, so big thanks to guest Jeanne for delivering proof with this great image of an amazing encounter last week!
