Emperor Divers have been running scuba trips throughout the Red Sea for many years. Now they bring their rich knowledge and wealth of experience to the MV Emperor Asmaa, the smallest and most affordable of their Hurghada liveaboard diving fleet, refitted in 2015.

The 30m Emperor Asmaa can accommodate 20 divers in roomy and bright air-conditioned twin en-suite cabins. You can enjoy the family atmosphere onboard, either in the chilled air-conditioned saloon on the main deck, the shaded lounging area on the upper deck, or up on the sundeck where you'll find plenty of mattresses for lazing about.

Keeping in touch with family and friends is simple and free on the Emperor Asmaa. You can either use one of the boat's mobile internet USB sticks with your own laptop or make use of the onboard computer. The computer also proves popular with underwater photographers since you can edit your pictures and burn them to CD.

For Red Sea liveaboard divers eager to extend their bottom time and decrease rest-stops, nitrox is available and free of charge. Scuba diving courses can also be arranged and dive computers are available for purchase onboard at discounted prices. As with the other boats in the Emperor fleet, the Asmaa too guarantees a minimum of 2 dive guides per trip and 2 motorised dinghies to shuttle you to the sites with the minimum of delay.

One wonderful bonus of booking the Emperor Asmaa is that they have a transparent 'no hidden extras' policy. This means that, along with the free nitrox, you will not find any extras such as marine park fees, fuel surcharges, boat transfers added to the price - they are all included!
