The world‘s finest diving

Emperor Voyager

The 30-meter (98-foot) Emperor Voyager was built in 2004 and refurbished in 2014. She has a welcoming feel & accommodates a maximum of 20 guests in 7 twin and 3 double cabins.

A word from Dom: “Voyager has an easy, relaxed style with a bit less “bling’ than some of her sister vessels, which I find that certain divers prefer. Her itineraries focus on the classic Best of Maldives diving. ” Dominick Macan

Comfortable & Unpretentious

On the Emperor Voyager you’ll feel completely at home at the same time you’re drinking in the the exotic surroundings of the Maldives Islands. She has all the comforts you’d expect on a high quality dive boat. There’s a large partially covered sun deck, devoted to your “down time” on board … offering hammocks & lounge chairs. The upper deck also features a large outdoor area at the stern with corner bar & dining facilities which offer spectacular views to diners. Inside on this deck, you’ll find a small lounge with several sofas and tables plus two of the cabins.


On the main deck there’s a huge living area with home-theater, comfy sofas, TV/Video/DVD, and library with board games. You’ll also find one cabin and another outdoor lounging space at the stern of this deck. The remaining 7 cabins are located on the lower deck.

Diving, of course, is done from the dhoni which accompanies the larger vessel and during your cruise you’ll have the opportunity to visit a deserted island for a BBQ under the stars. Emperor Voyager is re-breather friendly.


Travel & Cruise Logistics

International flights should be arranged for Male, Maldives. All the transfers to and from Emperor Leo on the check-in day (usually Saturday or Sunday) will be met at Male (Velana) International Airport by an Emperor representative. Transfers depart from the airport to the boat at 11:00, 13:00 and 16:00 and are free of charge. If you do not wish to wait for one of the above transfers or you arrive after the last transfer, taxis are available at the airport. Leo will depart early on the morning following the check-in day.

Upon arrival, after the week’s diving, you’ll be moored in port from mid-afternoon the day before departure until departure time the next morning. Check out is at 07:00 on the last day of the cruise and guests will be in the airport by 07:30. 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.

If your route does not start in Male and you require a domestic flight on arrival, you will be met by an Emperor representative and assisted with the check-in formalities for your flight.
