Beyond your room, you’ll have several places to relax after dives! All of the diving is done from the Emperor Explorer’s large dhoni (tender). This not only allows you to get to the best dive spots but gives the boat even more living space. This includes open-air dining rooms, air-conditioned lounging spaces, a covered upper deck, and a beautiful sundeck for between dive naps.
A message from the Emperor Explorer
Most dives will involve going to depth and diving in channels with strong currents, which can be challenging, therefore this itinerary is not for inexperienced divers. We recommend you have 100 logged dives to join this trip and require that you are Deep Diver/Advanced Open Water or equivalent. Divers may find some dives challenging and may be asked by the Cruise Director to skip dives that are not suitable for their diving experience. All diving is made from dhonis to give precise entry and exit points.Emperor Maldives – Deep South & Southern Sharks
