5 star service! Recent guests on Emperor Asmaa sent us some wonderful feedback and we'd like to share it with you...

"Fabulous! Boat great, food THE BEST (and I've done 30 liveaboards in the last 17 years)...those desserts, to die for. Dive guide Mustafa excellent, diving very good - I even did some sites new to me. A GREAT, GREAT trip. Planning Asmaa for next October. I'll talk to you after New Year." (Anonymous)

Emperor Divers has teamed up with Paul ‘Duxy’ Duxfield for 2018 to bring you some relaxing trips suited to divers who like flexibility and, of course, photographers and videographers.

Duxy has been at the forefront of underwater photography and travel for many years and brings with him a light-hearted take on the diving world and how it has changed the way we now take underwater photographs and video.

A regular speaker at dive shows and dive clubs, Duxy loves nothing more than to share his knowledge and enviable experience with divers of all abilities.

“Getting beginners started on the route to rewarding pictures and sharing advice with anyone who wants to learn is such a great feeling,” says Duxy.

He now combines his time helping people to choose and use cameras, housings, strobes and lenses, escorting trips and running workshops around the world.

His own pictures have illustrated blogs and advertising campaigns and he is currently contributing to Scuba Diver magazine with a regular monthly column.

With more than 40 escorted trips under his belt to the Red Sea and further afield, Duxy continues to develop new ways to pass on knowledge and share his love of diving and underwater photography to divers.

We have two trips planned on two of our magnificent Red Sea liveaboards with at least three ‘open deck’ days a week. Open deck diving means you are free to dive with your buddy between 6am to 6pm at times that suit you. Flexibility is the key so you can capture that killer shot or simply enjoy a lie in! On both itineraries there will be three guided ‘excursion dives’, even when open deck is in place, from either the two Emperor guides and/or with Duxy himself. Photo, video, processing and production advice will be delivered by Duxy.

Sample itineraries - if the weather plays ball – are below.

Wow! A huge round of applause for the team at Emperor Divers El Gouna for this glowing feedback from a recent guest, Yath.
"My fiancé and I recently dived with your company in mid-November and wanted to thank you for the great experience we had. 
I had booked a skills refresher and 5 dives with Emperor Divers as a gift for my fiance's birthday. We were both quite rusty from having only dived on one holiday before, and I, in particular, was nervous as I didn't feel confident even after qualifying. 
With Emperor Divers, I could not have dreamed of a more patient and supportive environment for us. We experienced 3 different dive guides (Tiger, Tamer & David), and all 3 were fantastic! Tiger sorted us out with a camera to get some great shots underwater. As I was only qualified up to Scuba Diver level, we had booked a private guide, David, and I would say that he was probably the best investment of our trip. He was patient, gave me specific goals to focus on during each dive and by the end of the trip I felt ready to take on the Open Water course. We had such a great time that we booked onto snorkelling with dolphins with Emperor on the morning before we flew back and Tamer worked hard to make sure we found those dolphins! All in all - a 5 star dive resort."
