First time on a liveaboard - excellent experience!!!

I saw marine life that I had never seen before, the people onboard were awesome, and I got to see a very expensive destination in a unique way.

Some good dives, some quite average.

Manta ray night dive was quite an experience, and SOME of the reefs were spectacular. However, about 50% of the diving I would describe as average. Some reefs are completely overgrown with algae, many reefs are 60-80% bleached with scarce fish life. We did one night dive at a site where nurse sharks 'used to' be fed (by the resort). We saw feeding tins on the sea floor, I suspect this practise is still going on, certainly the behaviour I observed is far from natural. I would prefer not to dive such sites, as a marine biologist I know of many examples where changing animal behaviour through feeding is hugely detrimental to the animal involved and can also lead to problems with them associating divers with food. So overall, some good dives, some average.

Awesome Dive Trip in the Maldives!!

I was with Emperor Voyager for the Christmas week. From the time I arrived in Male till the time I got on to my next LOB, the process has been smooth. Emperor being a foreign-owned LOB/Dive Company, is structured, well-organized and have a team of hardworking and awesome Staff… from the Operation Manager, Dive Guides, Captain to the folks who help you up to the dhoni after each dive, the Chef & bar man to the ones who clean your room (always a clean room after your second morning dive), I would consider this a dive paradise on earth. I am not sure if I would pay a little extra for a more luxurious LOB as Emperor Voyager is itself a luxury with a very reasonable price! The itineraries were pretty standard as of any other LOBs… South/North Male, Vaavu and South/North Ari Atoll but the difference will be the dive sites. I had a number of “best” in this trip… countless of reef sharks (big fat ones!), nurse sharks, close encounter (almost face to face) with the Manta rays, beautiful overhangs and varieties of fishes. My most memorable Christmas Eve is with Emperor Voyager when we had the Mantas loitering around our boat the whole night (because the crew hung the spotlight to attract them); not to mention nurse sharks too!!! :) I would highly recommend Emperor Voyager if you are looking for an unforgettable dive trip! Well done, Bernie & his team of dedicated and customer-oriented Staff! Special mention about Liveaboard.com – I booked 2 of my dive trips with them and I applaud their customer service – from the time I pressed the button to book the trip up to prior my departure, the Staff will ensure I stay informed of the copious details. They were very prompt in their email replies and provide the specific answers to your questions (unlike most agents who enjoyed cut-and-paste answers). They are definitely my #1 booking agent for my next dive trip! Special thanks to Nicole and Debbie… Hope to be served by you again next time!

The best diving trip I have ever been on by a long way.

Fantastic diving. Collection at Male airport stressful and messy and it is not a great place to wait 12 hours for a flight. Although there were 20 divers on board, there was plenty room in the public spaces so it didn't feel overcrowded. It was a bit awkward with the crew not having any cabins of their own because if you get up early for a coffee you disturb them sleeping in the lounges. The crew were friendly and helpful. The other divers were also fun to be with.
