Emperor Divers has teamed up with Paul ‘Duxy’ Duxfield for 2018 to bring some relaxing trips suited to divers who like flexibility and, of course, photographers and videographers.
Duxy has been at the forefront of underwater photography and travel for many years and brings with him a light-hearted take on the diving world and how it has changed the way we now take underwater photographs and video. He combines his time helping people to choose and use cameras, housings, strobes and lenses, escorting trips and running workshops around the world.
With more than 40 escorted trips under his belt to the Red Sea and further afield, Duxy continues to develop new ways to pass on knowledge and share his love of diving and underwater photography to divers.
Emperor has two trips planned on two Red Sea liveaboards with at least three ‘open deck’ days a week. Open deck diving means guests are free to dive with their buddy between 6am to 6pm at times that suit. Flexibility is the key. On both itineraries there will be three guided ‘excursion dives’ from either the two Emperor guides and/or with Duxy himself. Sample itineraries are:
