From its earliest days in 1992 based in Hurghada, Emperor has grown into one of the stalwart and most respected dive operations in the Red Sea and recently has expanded into the Maldives.

General manager Luke Atkinson said: 'We don’t claim to be perfect, but we always do our utmost to provide the best diving experience we can. And that’s what sees guests return to us time and time again.'

To celebrate, Emperor is getting the party started to mark its 25th year. The first new 25 bookings received will enjoy vouchers and money off.

The first 24 will each receive a €25 voucher to spend on board an Emperor liveaboard or an Emperor Red Sea resort.

The 25th booking will receive €250 against their next Red Sea or Maldives liveaboard. Book online or send your booking request to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to receive your gift.
