A new team, unlimited house reef diving, day diving plus easy access to liveaboard diving equals have one of the best Red Sea resorts – Hamata. Possibly one of the best areas for undisturbed Red Sea dive sites, Emperor Divers is proving to be a popular choice with divers looking for deep south diving, ‘the way it used to be’.
This vast reef area includes some wrecks with Fury Shoals and Qulan Islands right on the doorstep, which can be dived daily with Emperor’s team. The dive sites offer big fish, bigger corals, small critters, wrecks, shallow caverns and steep drop-offs with typically stunning visibility.
Marco Faccio & Ester Canali are the new team members to Emperor Hamata and bring a broad range of experience as well as an enviable fluency in four languages.
Hamata’s fabulous house reef is within walking distance of the dive centre, based at the Zabargad Berenice Resort, with the boat diving just three minutes away at the marina.
Hotel/diving packages are made easy at the Zabargad Resort, which include Meet & Greet at the airport + Airport transfers + Hotel + Diving + FREE daily hotel transfers where required. Twin Share with five days’ house reef diving and return transfer from Marsa Alam on a half board basis starts from just £289 pp.
Liveaboard diving is within easy reach thanks to Emperor Asmaa being docked at Hamata Port. Being so close to Fury Shoals, Emperor is able to offer departures on Tuesdays and Wednesdays each week without compromising the diving time, travelling time to St Johns, Zabargad and Rocky and allowing a full week’s diving. Prices start from £530 pp.
Review from TripAdvisor, 2 October 2013
“Really good week with Ester & Marco and fully recommended to anyone who has got as far as thinking about going to Hamata. I’d go as far as to say they’re the two friendliest and best guides I’ve dived with since I started diving in 2008 … including 7 trips to Egypt and several others around the world.” RichC, Leeds
