Amazing tripVerified review

Overlooking several inconveniences but small and a bit larger it was an amazing experience. The boat was broken down when we got there and they didn’t say anything until the day we were supposed to travel to different areas. Some of the guides would rather just drop in and swim as fast as they can to get to the end point of the dive, but once things were communicated everything worked out. If booking and you have the choice of cabins, try to get a higher number. Low numbers are by the engine room and the constant droning of the engine and occasional Whif of exhaust is not fun to sleep too.

Best of Maldives trip 11-18.09.2021 on Emperor LeoVerified review

This was my first time in the Maldives and with the Emperor Fleet. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised by this trip. First of all, the dive guides Jules, Imane, Shafiga and Fish made sure the dives were great. The boat is very spacious and well maintained, with lots of space on the sun deck and main deck for relaxing, briefings and meals, and there is also a working jacuzzi for the hot days. There is a second boat alongside Emperor Leo, the diveboat Sirina. All the gear and cylinders are stored on it and it is quite spacious. About the dives I can say that already from the first check dive we saw five manta rays and on the second and third dives plenty of white tip, black tip and nurse sharks. There was also a nightdive with a manta ray flipping over the flashlights to feed on plankton, while a black tip shark passed by. One evening dinner barbecue was held on Dhigurah island and it was very pleasant. There is another small boat used to go to the island, a donnie. On the other dives we saw plenty of marine life: giant mantas, stingrays, turtles, octopi, many kinds of moray eels on the last dive at Landuoy Giri, but also lots of small marine life perfect for macro. After the end of the diving days, those that wish can serve drinks at the bar, with plenty of happy hour times. For those that have cameras, there is lots of room to rinse and store them, as well as plenty of space to charge batteries. Therefore, I strongly recommend this liveaboard and would go again any time.
