Emperor Maldives has reported a large number of sightings of whalesharks making their casual, gentle, relaxed way to the back of the boats as they moor for night-time. Not unusual, but certainly gratifying for the guests aboard these spacious liveaboards. And the manta have been around in abundance for both divers and snorkellers.

The 2017/18 season is already shaping up to be a memorable one. Emperor Maldives has exciting dive trips sailing a range of routes from ‘Best of the Maldives’ to the ‘Deep South and Southern Sharks’ that, while not guaranteeing to see whalesharks, certainly know how to get the best chance thanks to the intimate local knowledge of their dive guides.

The Maldives certainly has its seasons but when diving, the need for blue skies and constant sunshine diminishes in the face of scoring that bucket-list dive destination. With its gentle climate and year-round temperatures between 26 degrees C-30 degrees C, there is an itinerary to suit divers of all levels and, this is good too, for those who don’t dive. Emperor’s liveaboards are spacious with sun decks, some with jacuzzis, private patios and lend themselves perfectly to snorkelling, swimming and just letting the world go by. Indeed, non-divers are so welcome they get free snorkelling equipment and a $50 voucher to spend on board.

All six Emperor Maldives liveaboards offer fine accommodation and service. Included is full board, free nitrox and local transfers.

Seven-night trips start from £1,091 per person sharing a standard twin berth cabin. Ten-night trips are also available. Prices do not include international flights. Up to four free places are on offer for group bookings.

Emperor Maldives consistently offers value, variety, quality, service, professionalism, easy booking, handy local knowledge, flexibility and fast response to guest requests.
