Leo Liveaboard is part of the Emperor Maldives fleet. Just like her sister ship Emperor Virgo MV Leo travels to the Central Atolls and Southern Maldives.
Built-in 2009 and renovated in 2012, this fantastic dive boat has a top speed of 12 knots and cruises at 10 knots. With a length of 35 meters, this modern, comfortable luxury liveaboard can accommodate 22 guests in its 11 cabins.
Enjoy a Maldives diving holiday that gives you all you dreamt of from North Male, South Male, and Ari Atoll’s iconic sites. During a week-long trip, MV Emperor Leo offers 17 dives, including one night dive.
Leo Liveaboard has three categories of cabins – Standard, Mini-suite, and Executive Suite. T
8 Standard cabins are on the lower deck 4 with a double bed and two twin beds.
The upper deck cabins are the two mini-suites with a double or twin configuration and the executive suite with a private jacuzzi.
All cabins have the latest technology with full air-conditioning, en-suite bathroom, minibar, TV and DVD, wardrobe, and safe box.
For comfort and relaxation between dives, relax in the beautifully furnished lounge area. Visit the library with its extensive collection of books, videos, and music and wallow in the perfect ambiance with a book in hand.
The spacious sun deck is ideal for outdoor types. No shortage of sunbeds to work on your tan. Or, if you prefer, sit in the shade with a drink in hand from one of 2 fully stocked bars – one outside and one inside.
In the evening, sit and watch the sun go down with a drink in hand. There is also a Jacuzzi on the front deck where you can soak after a day of scuba diving.
MV Emperor Leo’s restaurant offers buffet-style Asian and Western cuisine three times a day, prepared by the onboard chef. Snacks are also available throughout the day, and there are two fully stocked bars.
Once during this liveaboard cruise, the crew organize a barbeque on one of the Maldivian islands.
The perfect points of entry and exit for your dive are from the large Dhoni or Zodiac. During the liveaboard dive trip, you can also store all your equipment here. You can dive with air, and for certified divers, free Nitrox is available. Experienced divers can dive in a buddy pair unguided.
MV Emperor Leo is rebreather friendly, supporting Poseidon Discovery, AP units, and Megalodon manual units.
There are freshwater showers on the diving deck to rinse yourself off after each dive. Large freshwater buckets are also available to rinse dive equipment such as cameras, dive computers, and fins.
Many dive sites are suitable for all divers levels; however, unpredictable and strong currents can be expected in certain areas. Some dives’ recommended depth is below 18m, and advanced or Deep Diver training is advised. Some dives may be too challenging for inexperienced and beginner divers; the Cruise Director may ask them to skip them.
Marine life is in abundance around the Maldives. Dive guides show you manta cleaning stations, several species of sharks, turtles, and whale sharks are common sightings during a week-long cruise.
