Boat Description

The Emperor Leo liveaboard ensures great memories are made while sailing the Maldivian atolls. In 2019, Emperor Leo was fully refurbished to create a more spacious luxury interior. Hosting up to 24 divers within 12 ensuite cabins, the 35 metre yacht has an air-conditioned saloon with an internationally stocked bar. With onboard wifi, share the diving experience with friends before heading to the sun decks jacuzzi to reflect on the day as the sun goes down. A mix of western and local cuisine is prepared onboard before being served buffet style to hungry divers. From February to March divers can spend 7 nights exploring 'Deep South and Southern Sharks' or 'South Central'. In drift dives, witness hammerheads, whale sharks, and schooling barracuda before visiting a manta cleaning station. Deep South, at sites that are less visited, witness tiger sharks, silvertips, and silky sharks. 'Best of Maldives' sails divers to sites within the North Male, South Male and Ari atoll, where eagle rays, grey reef sharks, and whale shark are spotted.
