A glowing review for the Emperor Marsa Alam team from guest,
Gill Horton.
 
"Every single member of the Emperor team greets you with a smile and a friendly word, professional and accommodating to requests (where feasible). Catering for all levels a service second to none, knowledgeable guides, amazingly on the ball boat crews, clean well managed boats, excellent lunches and shore based services to equal this, the office staff are brilliant too, can not fault Emperor Divers and would never hesitate to recommend them to others!"

Emperor Echo - new to our Red Sea liveaboards

Emperor Echo, Red Sea

 

She's already proving popular in the Red Sea. Beautifully decorated and welcoming 20 guests in 10 roomy cabins.

Emperor Echo is new to the Emperor fleet. New Saturday sailings and value for money makes her a wise choice, especially for groups where 8 pay and 2 go free.

"Incredible boat, awesome crew, amazing diving sites!" 
I have no words to describe how good this trip on the Emperor Serenity was! THe crew was awesome, the boat impeccable and spotless and the diving was from another world. I cannot wait to do it again.
A huge thank you to Nuria, who is an extremely well-prepared diving instructor and guide. I did my AOW with her and I couldn't be happier.
And Yaqui, the boat manage, is an awesome diving guide with super GoPro rescue skills!

"Back home from your liveaboard on Asmaa, 18-25 August, we would like to let you know how pleased we are with it.

Although smaller than Emperor Superior (we knew from previous liveaboards) Emperor Asmaa was a very good surprise on every aspect! Comfort, cleanness and a very kind and professional crew led by his captain Hamada. I'm so thankful he made possible my most anticipated dive, Salem Express, even under a bit rough conditions!! I know this is an emotional dive spot for the crews and, therefore, I double my thankfulness!

Food was delicious and always creative! Congrats to kitchen staff as well!

Saloon man, Waleed (?), was tireless; cabin and saloon were spotless! He was always very kind and good mood!

Simone was always kind, funny and very professional.

Last words go to my dear Amr. A lovely human being, always attentive and kind to everyone, even to my husband who is a non-diver; Amr gave him the most wonderful experience by proposing snorkelling on Salem Express! We won't forget it!

Congratulations to Emperor! Please, let know everyone how pleased we are! We'll be back!"

Maria Tello & Gabriel Hermida.jpg

Hi and Hola
 
We are Gabriel and Maria, the new dive guides for Emperor Maldives.

We are from Argentina, started our dive careers 17 years ago and soon became PADI Instructors, opening a dive centre in Buenos Aires, Argentina; however, our aim was always to work on liveaboards.
 
Having been managers in large corporations, I (Maria) have a Bachelor of Marketing and I (Gabriel) am a Systems Engineer. When we started our diving courses we discovered our passion for scuba diving and decided to leave everything behind to follow our dream.
 
We have dived in Argentina, Brazil, Cayman Islands, Cuba, Thailand, Sipadan, Egypt, Sudan and Maldives. We moved to Egypt in 2006 and have been working on the Egyptian and Sudanese Red Sea for eight years.
 
With a huge experience on liveaboards, we have done more than 300 trips with more than 5000 dives logged and worked on well-known Red Sea fleet companies such as Emperor Divers, Sea Serpent, Blu Sudan and Blue o Two Maldives. We are PADI, SDI and TDI Technical Instructors and I (Gabriel) love to dive with my Kiss rebreather whilst surrounded by sharks.
 
We love our job, taking care of the marine life and sharing our knowledge with guests. We use every dive to clean a bit the reef, if it is possible, to help the environment.
 
Whilst working in Sudan, we promoted laws against shark fishing and reef awareness. As a result, the Sudanese government opened new marine protected parks and created a law against shark finning.
 
We love guiding and spotting the small and big stuff. Dive guiding is not our job, it's our passion. We are happy to come back to the Emperor family and to meet our friends in the Maldives again whilst looking forward to making new ones with our guests.
 
Come an discover the delights of civing the Maldives with us just as soon as you can.

Thanks to a recent guest for this rave review (yes, another one) for the team and crew at Emperor Marsa Alam. 

SERVICE Excellent
"Emperor Divers are the best dive company in the Red Sea. They are a safe, professional outfit whose boat crews are unsurpassed. We have returned multiple times to dive with Emperor Divers in Marsa Alam and haven't yet found anyone who compares.

The dive guides will do their utmost to find whatever rocks your boat whether it's Dyson the Dugong, Dolphins, Turtles or the Macro Photographers favourites like Shrimps and Nudibranch.

You'll come, you'll dive and you'll leave with fantastic memories and some new friends for life. Don't dive with anyone else until you've tried them.

We've been visiting for 7 years and have just had the best trip yet."
