My second trip to Marsa diving with Emperor. I have found the Emperor staff to be friendly, helpful and very competent in general and in diving matters particularly so. Daily dive operations were well run with excellent pre-dive briefings and fully experienced instructor level dive guides - so I always felt well looked after in and out of the water. The dive-boat crews were also very helpful and friendly and did a great job in looking after divers. The assitance available from the boat staff with 'kitting up' and 'de-kitting' was about as close to a luxury experience as you can get when diving! The cooked lunches provided on the day boats were some of the tastiest food I ate on holiday!
So I am going back to Marsa in 2013 and will stay with Emperor because I know that my needs as a diver will be met and that they will make every effort to make sure I have a good time.

Hi and thanks very much for your top rating and very nice review. I’m glad you had a great trip with us here and that you found the guides and crew to be helpful and friendly, and that you enjoyed the food on the boat (I love it too and find it hard to ration myself with the afternoon dive in mind…). I’m happy that you’ve already decided to book for next year, and I look forward to welcoming you back then. All the best,
Luke, Manager

This was the third trip to Marsa for me with Emperor. As usual the guys where fantastic. We where part of a group from Divecrew in the UK out for a week, spending the first day on one of the day boats (Amy) and then 3 days on Pegesus. The crew and dive guides where great and went out of their way to accommodate us during our training courses. We stayed in the Marina Lodge where the day boats are moored. Al financials where taken care of on the boat, making it really easy.

I have just returned from Port Galib with a large group of divers of all levels, we did 6 days diving using Emperor. Their service is first class, from the boat crew to Luke the Manager. Every dive the briefing was full and informative, given with lots of enthusiasm and plenty of pointers of what to look out for. Our main guide was Tarken, who was perfect in every way; often accompanied by Katherine and sometimes Haitem (sorry if I have the spelling wrong!) who were equally as wonderful.
The crew of Amy could not have made us feel more welcome, assisting us when needed and just being generally friendly making the trip so enjoyable.
I would not hesitate to recommend Emperor at Marsa Alam for any level diver. If it was possible I would give SIX stars not 5 they were that good!
Great dive sites to add to the enjoyment of the trip............a Hammerhead on my 100th dive, what more could I have asked for?

Thank you very much for the detailed review and your generous offer to try and give us 6 out of 5 stars! I’m glad you had a great week, I know that the guides Tarkan, Kathrin and Haisem were very happy to have dived with your group for the week too. As for the hammerhead on your 100th dive, does this mean you saw a hammerhead shark while you were diving ‘au naturel’ or did you break from a longstanding tradition ;) Once again, thanks for the review and rating and we’ll see you out here again soon,
Luke, Manager.

Having used Emperor Divers before my expectations were set high again and they did not disappoint.
They are one of the most professional dive outfits I have experienced and I have been diving for a few years.
Our group used there day boats, which are very spacious and well maintained, but more importantly they have amazing crews particularly the boat called Amy. The boat team are friendly, helpful, and fun, and the chef is excellent, he conjured a birthday cake up out of thin air from one of our group.

The instructors who accompanied us on the day boats, were extremely passionate, professional well organised and helpful. They were only too happy to answer any question no matter what.

I could not recommend Emperor Divers more highly. If you are thinking of diving in Egypt then use them.

Hi and thanks for the fantastic review and top rating. I’m glad the group had a great trip, and thank you for identifying the guides and the crew as professional and excellent. With regards to the cake, I’m always surprised at how the chefs manage to make a fantastic lunch every day in the galleys, let alone a cake the size of a small car! Thanks for your recommendation, and I hope to see you back out here again soon. Best regards,
Luke, Manager.

Having just returned from Marsa Alam I can truthfully say that Emperor laid on some of the best diving I have ever done. thanks to their efforts I was able to fulfil a forty Year ambition to dive with Hammerheads.

The dive guides and boat crews were all excellent at what they had to do. Luke had made sure once again that the experience we received was to an excellent standard with all diving conducted safely and in a totally stress free manner. The guides went out of their way to ensure that all divers were comfortable and they also kept a watchful eye on those who were not at first quite so comfortable in their surroundings.

I would have not hesitation in signing up for another trip with Emperor and will recommend them to any one who wishes to experience the best that can be offered in the Red Sea. Many thanks guys.

What can I say? I’m so pleased that we managed to get you diving with hammerheads at long last, and I hope it’s not the last time, as they are such mesmerizing creatures. I could happily dive with them every day. Thanks for taking the time to write such a fantastic review and for giving us a top rating. We had a great week with you guys out here and we look forward to your next trip. Maybe I’ll see you at the Dive Show before that, best regards,
