There is a beautifully decorated lounge area and an extensive library, including video and music collections should you wish to enjoy the perfect ambience with a book in hand.

If you are more of an outside person, you will love the spacious sun deck. There are plenty of sun beds and a shaded area where you can sit down and watch the sun go down with a drink in hand. 2 fully stocked bars are also available one outside and one inside. There is also a Jacuzzi on the front deck where you can bubble away after a day of diving.


The restaurant offers Asian and Western cuisine in a buffet style three times a day. Snacks are also available throughout the day. At one time during the liveaboard safari, the crew will prepare barbeque for the guest on one of the Maldivian islands.


Diving is from the large Dhoni tender where you will get your perfect dive spot for the real action. On this vessel, you can also store all your equipment during the trip. You can also choose to dive with air and for those who are certified, free Nitrox is available.

As with other Emperor fleet vessels, Leo is fully rebreather friendly, supporting Poseidon Discovery, AP units and Megaladon manual units. Freshwater buckets are available where you can rinse your equipment and showers are there for a shower after a dive.
