The sleek MV Emperor Echo liveaboard was refurbished with a new stylish interior in 2018. Accommodating 25 guests, this is the perfect liveaboard for ‘eat, sleep, dive repeat’ guests wishing to experience the incredible diving which the Red Sea has to offer.

Accommodation onboard Emperor Echo is tasteful and comfortable. Cabins all feature private, en-suite bathrooms and have centrally controlled air-conditioning, keeping you cool during the summer months. The social areas onboard include a lounge area with entertainment facilities and a separate dining area. The spacious open air seating on the main deck is partially shaded, providing you with the option to soak up the Egyptian sun rays or relax in the shade. The bar is conveniently located here for refreshing drinks. As with the rest of the Emperor fleet of Red Sea liveaboards, Echo has a Wi-Fi system which operates except when at sites very distant from shore. Internet usage is free of charge.

The dive deck includes dedicated storage spaces for each diving guest, separate camera rinse tanks, a dedicated camera charging station, 2 bathrooms with hot water showers, and the EANx membrane system supplies free nitrox for trained divers. 2 motorised dinghies and 2 guides per trip will accompany you on your Red Sea safari dives to Brothers, Northern wrecks, St. Johns Reef, Daedalus Reef, and Elphinstone. Should you prefer the exclusive service of a dedicated guide, Emperor will arrange one for you (pre-booking is required)!
