Emperor Divers

The Emperor Divers fleet of 12 liveaboards, based in Indonesia, Egypt and the Maldives, won 20 Readers Choice awards for categories including Quality of the Liveaboard, Level of Luxury and Best Overall.

Five yachts sail the Maldives, including the flagship 148-foot Emperor Explorer floating hotel catering to 26 guests. The more intimate Emperor Voyager, on the other hand, hosts just 20 guests.

In the Red Sea, several itineraries are offered, delivering northern safaris as well as “best of” trips. On the Red Sea yachts, sidemount and rebreather diving are available by request.

In Indonesia, Emperor operates two yachts, the 102- foot 12-passenger sailing schooner Emperor Raja and the 24-guest Emperor Harmoni. Choose from a wealth of destinations, including Komodo, Raja Ampat, Banda, Flores and Alor.

Emperor yachts are known for the quality and friendliness of their service and also "No Hidden Extras." On board, a glass of wine with dinner is included, Nitrox is free to nitrox-certified guests, and all port, park and fuel surcharges are also covered. Wi-Fi packages are available on board and most yachts have a barista machine for espresso.

Solo travelers are guaranteed a same-sex roommate, or they will have the cabin to themselves, and divers who book six months in advance can take advantage of helpful payment plans.

Moreover, Emperor offers exceptional value for money and the promise of no hidden fees makes sure all the surprises are found underwater where they’re much welcomed.
