Additional Information:
  1. The Captain: An important man! He will decide, along with the dive guides, where you go and when. Often dive sites can look like a millpond on the surface and to the uninitiated seems perfectly acceptable to dive. However, if the captain and guides say no, please accept their decision. Safety is the foremost concern of our knowledgeable captain and dive guides. The sea is a dangerous place when not respected, so please accept the alternative plan as best you can.

    Shopping: There is a selection of T-shirts, merchandise and diving accessories available to purchase onboard.

    Luggage: Whilst you may be advised where to store your luggage, you leave your belongings there at your own risk.

    Health: Check with your local doctor for recommended vaccinations. And remember to bring any prescribed medicines.

    Electricity: 3 pin UK electrical sockets using 220 volts AC 50Hz.

    Communications: VHF & CB radios, satellite telephone and personal mobiles.

    Language: The national language is Dhivehi. English and other languages are widely spoken within tourist areas.

    Nice to bring but not essential: CDs, DVDs, books, laptop, mobile phone, video and photo camera, binoculars and chargers.

    Taxes: All environmental and bed taxes and port fees are included in the price of your safari package. Any equipment rental, special tank requests and onboard purchases paid locally will be subject to 8% sales tax.

    Tips on board: Emperor Maldives believe that tips should be on a voluntary basis depending on the quality of your service from the guides and the crew. You will find an envelope in your cabin and the general recommendation is $100 per person. Please feel free to leave what you think is acceptable and it will be equally shared between the guides and crew.

    Currency accepted onboard: All prices are in US dollars when onboard but we accept in cash both Euros and US dollars. Visa and Mastercard are also accepted onboard, charged in USD and a 4% surcharge will be added. Please check with your bank any international charges and exchange rates.

    Packing; remember to bring:

    - Personal clothing & toiletries
    - Small medical first aid box & prescription medicines
    - Ear plugs are recommended if you are a light sleeper
    - Water-proof bags to store electronic items (land camera, passports) in case of water damage whilst on board - Note: Hard suitcases are hard to store onboard so please use roll up/collapsible style bags where possible

    Essential paperwork; remember to bring:

    - Logbook with your most recent dives in
    - Valid diving association certification proof
    - Valid travel insurance
    - A copy of valid diving insurance details per person (translated in English by your insurance company if not already) stating the start and ending date of the diving cover with the exact diving insurance covered by the policy. Without this document
    you will be required to purchase diving insurance locally before you may begin diving.
    - Booking voucher and holiday details (from your travel agency)

    And finally: If you have never been on a liveaboard before, then expect a few adjustments from normal life in order to enjoy your week. If you experience any problems during the week, please ensure that these are raised with the dive guides as soon as is practically possible. The guides and Boat Manager can remedy the problem onboard the majority of the time. However, if something remains unresolved make sure you raise it with the Boat Manager at the end of your week. With all the will in the world, problems cannot be resolved unless you highlight them. If you have any concerns, please raise them.
