MV Emperor Atoll

Boat Overview

This popular liveaboard and her crew give a personalised welcome to small groups of no more than 12 guests. Built with high standard and comfort in mind, she measures 26 metres and accommodates guests in 6 air-conditioned twin/double ensuite cabins, each with a full-size double bed and a single bunk bed above. On the main deck there is a large saloon with four separate seating and table areas along with a 38” LCD flat screen TV with multi-system home theatre surround sound. There are recharging points and edit playback facilities for underwater video and photography enthusiasts. There are also camera wash tanks and freshwater showers.

The partially shaded sun deck has comfortable sun loungers for your pleasure, and a large swim platform with ladder giving easy access to the water. Emperor Atoll is rebreather-friendly and offers free NITROX. Emperor also has a Single Travellers Guarantee where they guarantee same sex cabin share on Emperor Atoll. If they can't 'room' you with someone of the same sex, and a cabin is free, then they will give you a cabin to yourself with no single supplement.

Emperor Atoll is perfect as a 'liveaboard taster' giving you the opportunity to try life onboard before moving onto larger liveaboards without compromising on dive sites or sightings, and with no more than 12 guests on-board, diving centres and small groups can charter the boat exclusively for themselves. The itineraries with Emperor Atoll have no long crossings and, with only one deck, she is more stable with less 'roll'. Dive sites are reached direct from the boat or by an accompanying dhoni.
