The M/V Emperor Voyager is the flagship of the renowned Emperor liveaboard fleet in the Maldives. This 30m long mono-hulled boat takes up to 20 divers on tours around some of the best dive sites of Maldives central atolls.

You can choose between relaxation spaces, both outdoors and in air-conditioned comfort. On the main deck is a large open-air sofa area with bar. The Upper deck has a comfortable indoor saloon/home theatre as well as an outdoor dining area which doubles as a relaxation spot or camera charging area between meals. You can also go up to the sundeck to relax in a sun lounger or hammock. Wherever you are on the boat you can access the Wi-Fi on your device when in range, at additional cost.

Emperor Voyager's dive credentials are strong with free nitrox, rebreather friendliness, a 20m dive dhoni, 12 and 15 litre scuba tanks, a camera station with air gun, and compulsory use of surface markers and dive computers. Emperor Divers have a great reputation for liveaboard diving in the Red Sea and now bring some of their trademark professionalism and hospitality to the Maldives, and this is best sampled upon the impressive MV Emperor Voyager.
