Emperor AtollEmperor AtollEmperor Atoll

Emperor Atoll is a traditional Maldives liveaboard. If you are looking for an affordable way to access the full range of dive sites in this world class destination, then look no further. She might be smaller than some of her sister ships, but her charm lies in her open, airy layout and warm welcome.

Emperor Atolls sleeps only 12 divers across 6 cabins. Every cabin has the same lay out with a double bed below and bunk above. All are en suite with individual air con and a fan. Her small size makes her more stable than some larger wooden boats and the group size means she never feels crowded.

On the main deck is large saloon - grab a beer from the fully stocked bar or pull up a chair to view the day's photos on the big flat screen TV. Breakfast is typically served in the saloon, but we love the open air lunches and dinners around bow table. Soak up the tropical views as you tuck into the tasty, freshly prepared meals. Head to the sun deck to top up your tan upstairs or find a shady corner to snooze between dives. All diving takes place from the 14m dhoni tender, which has bags of room for both recreational and technical divers. On Emperor Atoll itself, there is a large swim deck with fresh water showers and rinse tanks.
