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.

Diving the Maldives is year-round, with its hot tropical climate. The Maldives lies in the monsoon belt of the Indian Ocean and has quite a varied weather pattern although the temperature remains fairly constant. There are two monsoons, the southwest from May to October and the northeast from November to April. Generally, the southwest brings more wind and rain in June and July, and a plankton bloom in early May can cause lower visibility but attracts whale sharks and manta rays. The peak time to visit is generally November to March.

The Maldives is renowned for the large pelagics that visit the area and the reefs that form channels and lagoons, along with encounters with some of our ocean favourites such as whale sharks, mantas, eagle rays, reef sharks, nurse sharks, and hammerheads. There are also some stunning channels with beautiful soft corals, along with amazing pinnacles to be explored.

Average temperatures in Summer (May-November) Air 25-30°c / Sea 28-30°c

Average temperatures in Winter (December-April) Air 26-32°c / Sea 28-30°c
