I chose to dive with Emperor Divers in Marsa Alam due to their reputation, I wasn't let down. I had booked a 5 day all in dive package which was exactly that. The dive centre did give me a little discount as I had all my own equipment. The dive boats and staff were all excellent with all our needs... More

The boat is very well equipped. The crew are just wonderful, can't do enough for you. They prepare all the food freshly, and it's very high standard indeed. The guides are brilliant, very helpful and considerate. We had great fun, will definitely go again, possibly again and again and again :)

Second time this year and already planning for next trip. From booking to checking out the experience was faultless. We stayed at The Marina Lodge so it was an effortless stroll from breakfast to the boats. Boats are spotlessly clean. The crew on all three boats were helpful; professional; friendly and the food excellent. The dive guides knowledgeable, helpful with... More

Perfect dive trip around Marsa Alam. Saw Dugong, oceanic white tips, dolphins, turtles, frog fish, and that was just the first few days. Great boat crew, awesome guides, top service all round. Will definitely come back asap. Thanks!

We spent a week on Emperor Divers day boats out of Marsa Alam. As is usual in Egypt, nothing was ever too much for the crew, who were helpful, informative and friendly.The dive guides were good and the sea life was plentiful, including a sighting of the elusive Dugong and so many turtles they were practically crashing in to each...

I had a great day diving on the "Rachel". The crew were very professional and the dive briefings were thorough and to the point. But what impressed me the most was the fantastic "gear rinse" that was offered when we returned at the end of the day. I had heard great things about Emperor Divers and am happy to say... More

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
