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.

Cousteau named the Red Sea ‘The Corridor of Miracles’ and it does indeed live up to its name. Its soft coral walls and hard coral gardens covered in myriads of colourful fish, many of them endemic, its crystal clear visibility for most of the year and the intense light, make the Red Sea a truly miraculous place. And then there is the big fish and mammals department.

We may snorkel and dive with dolphins all year around. Bottlenose dolphins are very friendly and very playfully interactive with divers at Gubal, Abu Nuhas and Shaab el Erg; and we may snorkel with Spinner dolphins in southern lagoons like Sataya and Samadai. Swift underwater encounters with dolphins can happen in any reef though, for example at the Brother Islands, Elphinstone, Daedalus, Rocky and Zabargad, the Thistlegorm, the Rosalie Moller to name but a few.

Snorkelling and diving with the spectacular dugong is also possible, mainly in bays north and south of Marsa Galeb Port, where its main meal, sea grass, grows.

And then there are the sharks. White tip reef sharks can be seen all year round on most reefs.

Grey reef sharks are also a permanent feature of the off shore islands, aswell as most walls, even those that are close to shore.

The shy thresher sharks can be seen mainly at the Brother Islands and at Daedalus Reef, mostly in deeper water, and all year around. They tend to be off-shore sharks but they do come to the reefs to make use of the cleaning stations and to feed.

Individual hammerheads visit the Brothers but can also be found at reefs closer to shore like Tiran Straits, Ras Mohamed, outer Safaga Reefs, Shaab Sharm, outer Fury Shoal Reefs, St Johns, Rocky and Zabargad, all year round really. Some tend even to be resident to a spot, like the one we often see off the wreck of the Numidia at the Big Brother Island.

The north side of Jackson Reef at Tiran is famous for schooling hammerheads but Daedalus is definitely our schooling hammerhead hot spot, especially because they have been known to be quite interactive with humans, circling divers for long intervals of time. At Tiran the best time to see them is the summer months, while at Daedalus they are typically shallow from May to June and then get progressively deeper during the summer and autumn months and less visible during the winter. Due to strange current patterns, along with possible other reasons, the sightings of interactive large schools have been less frequent for about a year now.

Oceanic white tip sharks are common in the colder months, September through to June, at the off shore islands of Elphinstone and at St Johns Reefs but have also been spotted on many other walls, for example, around Sharm El Sheikh, or even at coral gardens close to deep water areas.

We also get whale shark and manta sightings that can happen all year around, especially frequently in the Sharm El Sheikh area and the offshore islands but can happen on any reef; I saw my first whale shark in the Red Sea on the shallow coral garden of Samadai Reef.

There are also occasional black tip oceanic sharks at Ras Mohamed, as well as tiger sharks on many different reefs like Elphinstone, Rocky, Panorama Reef, Carless Reef, among others. Silky sharks used to make frequent appearances at the Brothers and Daedalus but have been mostly replaced by Oceanic white tips.

So wherever you dive in this 'Corridor of Marvels' the chances are highthat you will make a memory that will last a lifetime.
