Description

Liveaboard Emperor Leo offers both world-class diving in the central and Southern Maldives and very comfortable accomodation

The liveaboard Emperor Leo's diving activities are plentiful providing Guided Dives, Rebreather Diving and Wreck Diving. The love for detail that her owner instilled in her has not stopped with the design and the itineraries of the liveaboard Emperor Leo but also extends to the smallest detail in  the selection of the dive spots, the services, the food menu on aboard. As part of the Emperor Fleet, the liveaboard MV Leo and its experienced crew provide the best there is in terms of a perfect diving holiday, while attending to the comforts and high standards needed to create an exceptional diving experience.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

The vessel Emperor Leo is a beautiful liveaboard, set to explore the majestic Underwater World of the Maldivian Islands. The Emperor Leo's itineraries were arranged so the dive sites can be visited at the perfect time of year, e.g. itineraries going to the Southern Maldives are in February and March.

The liveaboard Leo is outfitted with air-conditioning and each cabin has its own climate control. The boat has 3 types of cabins: an Twin and Double cabin combinations on the Lower and Upper Deck and an Executive Suite is also located on the Upper Deck. Cabins have hairdryers and private bathrooms. 1 bath, sun deck & dive towels are provided for each guest. Liveaboard Emperor Leo can accommodate up to 24 guests in its 12 cabins. Liveaboard Emperor Leo’s stylish, contrasting wood décor adds to the ambiance and intimacy of the vessel.

This liveaboard ship's concept is holistic in that it wants to ensure that both the below and above water experiences are fantastic.

Part of this is also great food. The liveaboard meals were designed by Divers because they know that the right food will provide an energy boost for subsequent dives. The varied menus designed for fueling the action-packed dives include Western food with Vegetarian options served as a buffet. Beer, Wine, Spirits and Cocktails are available at an extra charge on board the Emperor Leo. Special dietary requests can be honored by stating your needs on the booking form.

After an exhilarating diving day aboard liveaboard Emperor Leo, unwind on the Sundeck or at the Bar, enjoy fresh food or rest in your Stateroom. The Salon areas are spacious with air conditioning, including a Dining area and a fully stocked Bar.  Spend non-diving time soaking up the sunrays on the Fly Deck or recap the day in the comfort of the Jacuzzi.  Your every need is accounted for by the attentive liveaboard English-speaking staff to ensure your liveaboard dive vacation is both comfortable and relaxing.
