Emperor Maldives welcomes ‘veteran’ dive guides to the team

Published

on

hjXkn6kK (1)Adding to the vast wealth of knowledge already totted up by the Emperor Maldives dive guides, two new dive experts now join the team to strengthen it even further.

Marilen Enseñat and Marc Chicano hail from Spain and have successfully run liveaboard dive holidays in every region of the Maldives, especially central and deep south atolls, since 1997.

Fluent in Spanish, French and English, the couple will share their vast knowledge of these iconic atolls having a honed instinct to know where to go for the best chance of superlative diving. With literally thousands of dives and 19 consecutive seasons on Maldivian boats, Emperor Maldives guests are sure to drink in their experience and passion.

“Having guides who know these waters and atolls like the back of their hands is so important.” explains Emperor Maldives MD, Alex Bryant, a veteran himself. “Guests will truly feel they are in the hands of connoisseurs, because that’s exactly what our dive guides are.”

From October, Marc and Marilen are dedicated to three Emperor liveaboards, Emperor Orion, Emperor Leo and Emperor Virgo, covering three itineraries – Best of Maldives, South Central 7 Atolls and Deep South & Southern Sharks. Prices for 7 nights start from 1669 Euros / £1302.

Emperor Maldives consistently offers value, variety, quality, service, professionalism, easy booking, handy local knowledge, flexibility and fast response to guest requests as well as popular purpose-built liveaboards.
