Emperor Divers has wrapped up its rather lovely Covid Diver Hero promotion by awarding a liveaboard trip to the eighth and final lucky winner.

In February Emperor Divers launched the Covid Diver Heroes initiative, aiming to recognise eight people who have stepped up during the pandemic – and rewarding them with free liveaboard trips in the Maldives and the Red Sea.

Hundreds of nominations were received and weighed up by a varied panel of loyal staff – many of whom were brought to tears. Emperor says: “What is clear is that divers are awesome, and it came as no surprise that within the international underwater community there were so many selfless, empathetic heroes.”

The eighth and final winner is KK Tan, a 38 year-old doctor from Kuala Lumpur who was nominated by his cousin Alex. He wins a dream trip to the Maldives.

The full list of winners in Emperor’s Covid Diver Heroes Hall of Fame:

  • Deboraha Brabham, UK
  • Noam Har-Tzvi, Israel
  • Megumi Gotada, Germany
  • Phuong Cao, USA
  • Ingrid Stubelius, Sweden
  • Lily Lancaster, UK
  • Susana Garcia, Spain
  • KK Tan, Malaysia

Susana Garcia has been lucky enough to take her liveaboard trip in the Red Sea already, giving Emperor Divers the opportunity to present her trophy face-to-face. Congratulations to all the winners!
