All dives will be started from the designated dive boat (dhoni). The dhoni will follow the dive group during the dive. This is one of the most comfortable and safest ways of diving, because whenever you are surfacing, the dhoni won’t be far and will be ready to pick you up.

On the dhoni, each diver has a designated space for their equipment, which will stay on the dhoni during all of the safari. This way you will have a lot more space aboard the ship!

At every new diving site, you will receive a detailed briefing from our diving guides before starting your dive. All divers are required to dive as part of a buddy team. If you are travelling by yourself, a buddy will be found for you once you’re on board. As a qualified diver, you’re responsible for your own and your buddy’s safety.

Guests arriving at Male Airport on the check-in day (usually Saturday) will be met by an Emperor Maldives representative, wearing an Emperor Maldives T-shirt and holding an Emperor Maldives sign. The meeting point is beside the Help Desk.

Transfers from the airport to the boat run at 11:00, 16:00 and 22.30 and are free of charge. Guests who use the 11:00 transfer have to accept that the boat will not be fully cleaned or ready. A light sandwich style snack will be provided for lunch. Please contact us to discuss options if your flight is either very early or later than the transfer times shown as we may be able to arrange an extra transfer for EUR 5 per person paid locally.
If you are already in the Maldives you should make your way to the airport for the 16:00 transfer. The boat moors near Male and departs early on the morning following the check-in day.
If your route does not start in Male and requires a domestic flight on arrival then you will be met by an Emperor Representative where possible, and assisted with the check-in formalities for your flight. Full details will be provided at the time of booking.

Check out is at 07:00 and 09:00 AM on the last day of the cruise. Guests will be in the airport by 07:30 and 09:30 respectively. For guests continuing their holiday in the Maldives at a resort, hotel or another liveaboard, your on-going transfers need to be arranged by you from the airport. We cannot arrange direct transfers from the liveaboard to resorts.

All details from the boat are collected in a PDF for you to download!
