Emperor Voyager video | Best of Maldives

| No TrackBacks

Andreas Schumacher took this fabulous video from the air, from the boat and from below the water whilst on Emperor Voyager and wrote this trip report …

“We started in North Malé the to South Malé and further south to Vaavu and Meemu with some cruising west to South Ari, North Ari and back to Malé. In Vaavu Atoll we had gorgeous soft corals and lots of fish. We saw schools of jacks, batfish, barracudas and turtles.

The dive guides pointed out small stuff like nudibranchs, ghost-pipe fish, leaf fish, some octopus and, of course, plenty of colourful anemones. We had great shark and eagle ray encounters. In South Ari Atoll we watched out for whale sharks first cruising with the dhoni and then during the dive.

After an interesting seminar about manta rays we dove Rangali and saw plenty of in one spot. Almost impossible to count. In Ari Atoll we did the Kudhimaa Wreck, which is also known as Machafushi Wreck. A really nice wreck, which is easy to dive and with a bit of luck you can find sleeping nurse sharks.

At the end of the trip we did Fish Head in North Ari Atoll, which has huge schools of yellow snappers; maybe the biggest population in the world.

Emperor Voyager is a really comfortable liveaboard with a massive yet cosy salon and open bar area. All meals are served outside, which gives a perfect feeling of a holiday on the Maldives. Highlight was a breath-taking sunset on the barbecue island.

The week on Emperor Voyager was just stunning! Great dive guides and crew! Excellent company.”

Thanks Andreas!

Andreas sent us this little report too;

"Starting at North Malé and then South Malé before going further south down to Vaavu and Meemu. We cruised west to South Ari, Nord Ari and back to Malé.

We had some good shark action on almost every dive, greys reef sharks, nurse sharks, blacktip and whitetip reef sharks and a whale shark out in the blue. Schools of jacks, batfish, barracudas, eagle rays and some turtles but also lots of small stuff like ghost-pipe fish, nudibranchs, a leaf fish and of course plenty of anemones with their clownfish and its cleaner shrimps.

The week on Emperor Virgo was such fun! Great dive guides and crew! Excellent company.”

Tiger sharks 'keep turning up' in the Maldives

IDC course

 

They're becoming a popular sighting from lots of our liveaboards including Emperor Atoll during our Sharktastic trip.

The guides tell us they have been encountering a tiger shark for the past few weeks on the check dive! Let's hope it stays around. As we said, lots of boats have been seeing it as the check dive is close to Hulhumale. Rather a super check dive!

Enjoy this video of a tremendous tiger shark filmed recently in North Male Atoll.

Dolphins Red
                                  Sea video

 

It's everyone's bucket list encounter; swimming with wild dolphins. And it happens more often than you might think with Emperor Divers Red Sea.

Most weeks our safari boats in the North and South manage to see these beautiful animals in their natural environment. Just the other week on Emperor Superior guest Aofie talked to our guide, Roberto, what it was like for her - and we have a few dolphins to show you too!

Emperor Maldives helps identify whale shark!

| No TrackBacks

0318 whale shark video.jpg

 

Recently we told you about the sighting from Emperor Orion in Huvadhoo Atoll of a ‘new’ whale shark and have been working with the Maldives Whale Shark Project team to get the identity of her and to give her a name.

Result! She is now called Dhahi, meaning ‘glutton’. This is the fourth time she has been sighted; the first in 2015 then 2016, 2017 and from Emperor Orion this year. The interesting thing is that every time, she has been sighted in the same spot at Huvadhoo Atoll in February or March.

Emperor boats, especially Emperor Orion and Emperor Serenity, help Maldives Whale Shark Project a lot with their research to help identify them. Some whale sharks have been sighted more than 100 times.

Thanks to Emperor dive guide, Gabriel, for the fabulous video.

Join Duxy and Emperor for 2018 Red Sea trips

| No TrackBacks

Duxy Profile Pic High Res-6260164.jpeg

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.
