Watch this super video taken at Mundhoo Kandu of a whale shark that the team at Emperor Divers Laamu might just get to name! Thanks to Adam and all for sharing. Adam explains:

"What an amazing dive looking for white tip and grey reef sharks, and instead we came across this graceful beauty! Sooooo lucky! We are currently waiting feedback from Maldives Whale Shark Research Project for details of this amazing creature. Their initial response is that as this has been a new encounter we get to name it!"

You & Me Resort, Raa Atoll

 

Our brand new Emperor-managed dive centre at You & Me in Raa Atoll is open and brings our 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 also manage the state-of-the-art Water Sports Centre with a range of activities for divers and non-divers alike offering everything you need for those water sports thrills from snorkelling to jet skis, there is a complete range of water sports equipment and activities.

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

Come and 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. For the more skilled there is wall and current diving with eagle rays, grey reef sharks, tunas, snappers, mantas and more.

How about opting 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.

And to give you a little taster of the diving here, watch this video taken by guest, Nino Faranda.

Sidemount

 

"Once we tried it, we had to share it with you," says Luke Atkinson, Emperor Divers' Red Sea General Manager. "The freedom of diving with Sidemount is an experience for all divers."

Sidemount diving is growing fast and becoming a popular choice because of the ease with which you can kit up and dive. We asked many of our guests who dived with Sidemount if they would ever go back to the back plate and the majority reply was 'never!'

You can add a second tank for more gas, more balance and more redundancy; either way Sidemount is a winner with one tank or two.

We have the full range of options for divers, whether you're Sidemount trained or not:

  • PADI Sidemount Specialty with our professional instructors to learn and certify in the new gear
  • Gear rental for further Sidemount exploration
  • An awesome deal exclusive to Emperor guests - 15% off any X-Deep gear you want to buy
  • Sidemount/extra tank rental if you have your own gear

"This is a great chance to try something new. We tried it, we loved it, you will too!" concludes Luke.

To dive or not to dive? Indonesia has it all

0918 Raja Laut side on sail spray2 (Medium).jpg

Whilst Indonesia is renowned for its magnificent diving it's not all about what's under the water. Land excursions are also available on our liveaboard holidays on Emperor Raja Laut.

Join us as we visit beaches that are perfect for a little cocktail party at the end of the day. Depending on the route, trip duration and weather conditions, we usually offer 2 - 3 land-based excursions for each of our trips.

Examples can include:

·         Komodo: Early morning visit by speed boat to either Komodo or Rinca Island for a 1 - 2 hour walk with a park ranger to see the Komodo dragons.

·         Raja Ampat: North: visit Aljui Bay Pearl Farm and climb Mt Pindito for picturesque and panoramic views of Wayag lagoon. An optional early morning visit to the 'Birds of Paradise'. Penemu look out and various lagoon tours by speedboat.

South: the caves on Misool.

·         Banda Sea: Half day visit to Banda Neira to see the nutmeg plantation, historic forts and small Maritime Museum.

·         Raja Ampat & Banda Islands: The Ambon to Sorong cruise is special because it takes in two magnificent regions in the one cruise. Beginning in Ambon we head to the Banda Islands (original Spice Islands) before rounding the east coast of Seram and rejoining the south and central sections of Raja Ampat. The Banda Islands offer the opportunity for some pelagic action, hopefully hammerheads too, before diving arguably one of the best dive locations worldwide, South Raja Ampat. This cruise will take in the Banda Islands plus the Southern and Central sections of Raja Ampat.

- New hangers for suits over the diving platform, so those are out of your way when setting up your gear.


- More space on the dive deck by removing hatches and storage boxes, plus 4 new spaces for diver and gear.


- Enlarged sundeck for better relaxing between dives & snorkel excursions.

​But a picture paints a thousand words, so see for yourself! Lots more photos on our El Gouna Facebook page too
