MV Emperor Elite Diving

On the northern scuba diving routes, they visit some of the 30 ship wrecks including the famous WWII Thistlegorm. When exploring the eastern routes they venture out to the Brother Islands. Out here you can view spectacular soft coral colored walls, hammerheads, silver tips, oceanic white tips, and thresher sharks. During the Islands of the Stream excursions, you might visit St Johns, Rocky Island, the famous Elphinstone walls, coral caves, Dolphin Reef, and/or Marsa Alam where the Dugongs (cousins of Manatees) hang out. The ship departs from Port Hurghada in the north or Port Ghalib in the south; depending on your itinerary. They use two RIB inflatable tenders with 25hp engines to take you out to many of the dive sites. While onboard the MV Emperor Elite plan on doing 3-4 dives each day. You can only do 2 dives the day before you return to port. Also, some destinations unfortunately do not allow night dives. They also recommend 20-30 logged dives before you start the trip.
