Travel specialists Emperor Divers have been preparing to welcome back guests on their liveaboards and in resorts.

The company’s boats and centres have now been certified to begin operations in Egypt and the Maldives again, following the easing of strict regulations laid down by the local authorities and WHO.

Emperor have met all the requirements

“We’re pleased to have met all the requirements needed to operate and passed the Egyptian Health Authority’s thorough inspections,” said Luke Atkinson, Emperor’s General Manager in Egypt.

“To ensure we’ve got it right we decided to go one step further by running a trial trip for a few lucky guests who managed to fly in from Switzerland. It gave our crews the opportunity to train and learn best practice with a limited number of guests which we feel has been very useful.”

“With flights returning to the Maldives on 15 July and foreign offices easing restrictions, we’re able to announce that we will run a trip on 9 August and ramp up after that. Our guests can be confident our teams have been working hard to ensure best practice is being adhered to when they dive with Emperor,” said Alex Bryant, Area Manager for the Maldives.

The four-month pause has given the reef a good break and means divers can expect to experience some wonderful diving in the coming months.

“Our ‘Fish out of Water’ social media posts have been popular,” said Luke, “but now our guides can’t wait to welcome their guests back into the water again for the real thing!“
