Highly recommend: very professional staff and dive masters. We completed an advanced adventurer course (SSI) and a Nitrox certification. Both were great and professionally organized. Shawn has been helpful in navigating the maze of Padi and SSI certifications! Rental equipment is new and good quality. Overall, cannot go wrong.

I am a PADI Staff instructor with my own Dive Centre. This is my 5th trip with Emperor. Once again I found them excellent. The centre has just been opened at this location but is fully operational. Great service, excellent guides, spotless boats. I will in the future continue to take my groups with this company.
