Sometimes in life it is good to look at the world a little differently – and that is exactly what Emperor Divers have done with their new Red Sea itinerary.
Brand-new for 2023 is Southern Solitude which sees Emperor go against the flow.
While most trips explore the southern Red Sea following the same pattern, Emperor have developed an itinerary which will give experienced divers the chance to dive the best sites on what should be their quietest days.
Emperor’s Red Sea general manager Luke Atkinson explains: “I speak with our divers all the time, and this year the same thing was said a few times in the south: the diving was great, but there were a lot of boats on the key sites.
“While there’s no guarantees in life, Southern Solitude was built on the concept of giving our divers the best chance of visiting the top sites in the south Red Sea on the days when they should be quietest.
“We tapped into the experience of our diving and sailing teams to work this out and give our divers the best possible trip we can imagine. It’s a serious, dive-focused trip, with more than 21 dives on offer, all of them offshore on proper safari sites, and no last night moored in port so divers will have to party on the boat!“
Southern Solitude heads straight out of Port Ghalib and immediately for Elphinstone – a site normally visited on the last days of the trip – at the time when most other trips start off heading in the opposite direction.
Emperor take the same approach with Daedalus before it gets busy and then go to the exceptionally remote Rocky and Zabargad Islands – somewhere few Red Sea veterans have even dived.
The rest of the trip continues up through St Johns and Fury Shoals, as many other boats should by now have moved on, and to not stress out the last diving day by rushing to port, they keep the boat out all night offering the chance for up to four dives.
It all works to provide guests the greatest chance of seeing the delights of the southern Red Sea with fewer other visitors.
There are spaces available on this fantastic itinerary in May, August and September so visit https://www.emperordivers.com/liveaboard-itinerary/southern-solitude/ to find out more and come dive the Red Sea at its most peaceful.
