Went with Emperor Elite on the tour South and St. John. Very disappointed. The boat is in need of a major renovation. They also need a significant improvement in several of the crew. Our cabins were dirty and very run-down. We have been to many dive safaris earlier, both in the Red Sea and elsewhere. This was by far the... More

Hi and thanks for the review. Technically this review has been posted to the listing for the daily diving centre in Marina Lodge, tripadvisor removed our liveaboard listings as they do not want 'multi day' tours on their review engine. No matter, as you know we have been in email contact over this one. We are of course sorry you... More

It was a great pleasure, diving with Emperor Divers Marsa Alam. All the members of the staff were really friendly and willing to help with everything. I booked a five day package with two dives a day with every day another diving spots. The food was really good and the equipment worked really well.

Started from Port Ghalib and moved south in the Red Sea close to the borders with Sudan. Had some great dives over the next 6 days moving north, especially around the St John's reefs area. The caves of St. John is a MUST! We ended the trip with 2 great Elphinstone dives and plenty of oceanic white tip encounters. I... More

Just back from my 7th visit, each time diving 12 days. Must be a good reason for this! Simple answer is the high and continuous standards of safety, service delivery and friendliness. When I say "almost a member of the team" I really mean it Will continue to visit again next year.

My wife and I spent 2 weeks in Masa Alam scuba diving and couldn't have been happier with choosing to dive with Emperor Divers! They go above and beyond normal expectations to ensure you are happy above and below the water! We had started planning this trip 6 months before we arrived in October 2016, from the first email I...

We had 3 days of diving with Emperor combining dives with a course. Although the crew and the boat and in the office were great we had tuns of issues and therefore not the best experience. Meanly because they were not able to sign us in on the electronic learning platform of PADI and we lost a full day on... More

Hi and thanks for the review. Honestly we're disappointed that you chose to rate us as 1 star, despite highlighting how friendly the staff are and that the boats are 'super'. I know there were issues with the PADI digital course, but using Egyptian internet connection to download digital materials is not so easy. we do try to stress to... More

A fantastic week long dive trip aboard a superb boat to South and St. Johns. The boat has top notch cabins and the food is lavish (3-4 desserts with EACH meal and wine with dinner). The briefings are very professional and done via LCD screen. Safety procedures were perfect and the dive guide was friendly and knowledgeable. St Johns trip... More

This was our 3rd holiday with Emperor Divers Marsa Alam and as usual we have had a wonderful time. We stayed at the Marina Lodge which is perfect for the day boats, so no hanging around waiting for transfers, just a leisurely breakfast then stroll to the boats. We dived from 2 boats, Amy and Isa and both crews are... More

I've been guided by many Dive groups, companies and people and Emporer Divers comes out among the top by some way. Mustafa our guide was exceptional at maintaining humour serious aspects of each dive profile. Nothing was too much effort for the team onboard the boat.
