Diving better than my dreams

From the arrival at the airport to the moment we stepped foot back at Male the crew was fantastically helpful. Voyager is kept exceptionally clean and is very well maintained. The dive guides were incredibly, very knowledgeable and engaged, adjusting the schedule to the groups interests and desires, and even went out of their way to find sites where diving and snorkeling were possible after I had a severe reverse block and couldn't dive. The food was absolutely incredible, with a good variety of cuisines. I can't wait to come back and spend another week with Chris and the Voyager!

I have been to liveaboard last year with Emperor Leo, but Voyager still suprised me! The night dive with Manta and sunset dive with nurse shark was fantastic! The crew was so sweet and hardworking, all of them are very nice. I'm looking forward the next trip with Emperor.

A perfect week, thrilling dives, great people on board and lots of memories made

From pick up to take off, everything was well organised. Food was amazing and individualised, Eventhough the Maldives lack coral in some spots, the pelagics are still there and there is nothing better than starting the morning in a cloud of grey reef sharks :)

My BEST liveaboard experience till date

This trip was not just another dive trip where we see the fish and corals and come back. The dive instructors on board - Chris, Daniella and Stina, are all extremely experienced and passionate divers. We learnt not only diving discipline from them, but also a sense of responsibility towards the underwater life. Dive briefings have never been so much fun before as they were on this trip, thanks to Chris. Needless to say, Maldives offers an amazing view of the fish and corals. The staff on board was excellent to say the least. Food was fabulous. Me being an Indian vegetarian, they ensured my friends and I got enough choice of food, unlike other liveaboards where we normally get just one vegetarian dish. Overall a 5 out of 5 experience on Emperor Voyager. Kudos to the entire team for giving us an amazing week and teachings for life.

Amazing

It was an excellent experience to do a trip with the Emperor Voyager. The diving was great and it was supported by excellent service levels. We spotted 3 spieces of sharks, mantas, eagle rays, sting rays, turtles and many many other interesting fish. The guides took personal interest in educating about the environment, fish life and improvement of diving skills. One notable focus area for the dive guides was sustainable diving with minimum impact to coral and sea life which was very good. We had less than 20 dives at the start of the trip and the dive guides helped us improve our diving skills considerably. We will definitely recommend a dive trip with the emperor group liveaboard specifically the Emperor voyager for all diving enthusiasts

Diving with guides with indepth local dive site knowledge makes all the difference!

Vessel with soul (feels like a proper boat!) and unparalelled local dives site knowledge from guides with 15 + years of diving in Maldives made this one of the best liveaboard trips thus far (after 20+). also really good prize compared to other operators. food some of the freshest and well cooked on any trip thus far, and the local knowledge made this a real 'diving for serious divers' trip. Also smiling and atentive crew that made it all a joy!

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!

Overall, i had a great trip despite not seeing any of main draw cards (Mantas & Whalesharks) but i went in the low season and with the wrong type of moon. I was also lucky to have a boat that wasn't full and a great group. All the staff were excellent from the dive guides to the chef. I want to go back already!

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.
