Emperor Asmaa offers genuine value for money for divers looking to explore some of the best sites the Red Sea has to offer, from Red Sea Sharks itineraries that take you to the centre of the action, to the beautiful reefs of the Fury Shoals, and not forgetting those Northern itineraries for all you wreck lovers out there.

This popular liveaboard is designed with the diver in mind, comfortably accommodating 20 guests in 10 twin-berth cabins, with 4 being on the upper deck. All offer ensuite facilities, individual air conditioning, and two towels for each guest. There is a large dive deck, and a sun deck where you can lay back and enjoy the warm Egyptian sunshine. The air-conditioned salon has a bar and TV with DVD, CD and video.

NITROX and Wi-Fi are free, as is red wine with dinner! There are two professional dive guides on hand to ensure everyone gets the best out of every dive, and the whole crew welcome guests with open arms.
