    Trip of a lifetime! Maldives Central - North Tour, Maldives in October

    We loved the diving! Just being in the Maldives was a dream come true but then to be on Scuba Spa Ying and all that the crew did to make our time special, fun and unique was truly amazing. We loved the BBQ on the beach evening and of course the diving.

    Best trip of our lives - can't wait to go back! Maldives Central - North Tour, Maldives in September

    This was by far the best trip me and my husband have taken. I'll try to be through in the review as I think they can be really helpful as you're making a decision. Overall, this is the way to go if you want to see more of the Maldives and don't care for sitting still at a resort. We stopped in three different islands for different reasons (beach time, BBQ, sightseeing) and just the travel through the atoll and islands you can see along the route is something very special. We cannot wait to go back!!! BOAT & CREW The boat is extremely comfortable and for us, both divers, the spa is a nice add (and a great option for non-divers who just want a relaxing vacation). The rooms were spacious, clean, and the staff was EXTREMELY nice and attentive, make you feel special. The food was OK with a nice variety and lots of fresh fruits (which I love). The BBQ night was incredible and super fun. DIVING The whole dive operation is best-in-class. From the dhoni to the crew, we could not have asked for better service. They looked for the best dives spots (which can vary based on weather and diving conditions) and are very organized with the dives, but in a very relaxed way, which is really nice. Both my husband and I took the opportunity to get our Advanced Open Water certification onboard and our dive master, Rita, was wonderful. They offer 17 dives in 7 days!! You can't ask for more adventure and fun than that. We saw mantas and sting rays, lots of sharks, whale shark, turtles, and all sorts of beautiful fish. The night dive is a MUST DO... It's incredible. A FEW THINGS TO NOTE: --You should make sure you book your departing flight late on the last day of the trip so you can take advantage of all dives the day before - my husband and I didn't know we were diving on Friday, so we had to skip two dives (to make sure we had 24h of surface time before flying). It's better to maybe stay overnight in Hulhumale or Male, unless you are OK with possibly missing some dives on the last day. -- Another thing we did not know before going is that if you want to pay the balance of the trip with a credit card, there's a 2% fee. Not a huge deal but slightly annoying that we were not informed of that before. -- Make sure you bring cash for the water sports (optional activity) as they do not take credit card. I highly recommend the parasailing in Maafushi - super fun!

    Look no further book this one. Maldives Central - South Tour, Maldives in August

    The boat is very luxurious just what you require after three spectacular dives a day. The food is plentiful, varied and delicious. The accommodation is very comfortable and spotless. The diving guides are very calm, knowledgeable and helpful. The dive sites are varied with lots of sea life great for spotting sharks.The added bonus is the spa and yoga. The attention to detail from staff and facilities on this liverboard is remarkable. Thanks Scubaspa for a wonderful experience!

    Fabulous liveaboard & location - 5 stars all around! Maldives Central - North Tour, Maldives in May

    This was our first liveaboard experience, and I'm afraid I've been spoiled! The Ying is beautiful - very luxe, wonderful rooms, plenty of public space - and the spa is to die for! You feel like you're in a fabulous spa at home (but then realize it's actually on a ship in the middle of the Indian Ocean!). The treatments were all terrific and the masseuses really have a lot of experience. Between my husband & myself, we indulged in a 5 massages, 1 facial, and one anniversary package (massage & scrub & wrap) - this last one was on the house due to our celebration, and it was such a nice touch! This was a highlight of the boat that definitely sets it apart from other liveaboard vessels. The diving in the Maldives (our reason for going) was top-notch, and our crew was experienced and very capable. We saw everything we could have hoped to see - mantas, so many turtles, multiple whale sharks, schools of fish like I've never seen before (and we've dived a good number of prime diving sites in the world), etc. etc. Matt & his entire liveaboard crew went out of their way to make all of our vacations memorable, and we enjoyed it all - the sandbar & island stops, BBQ night on the deserted island, etc etc. All fantastic! We happened to go in the low season (late May), but our sea conditions were fine (I think visibility was lower than normal, though it was still decently good for us - about 20-30m)...and allowed us to have some significant discount in the pricing (25% lower than peak season). A few important details: Wifi is free and included (not so in many liveaboards), staterooms were plush (we were in a manta suite with a huge window), food is abundant and great (loved the pre-morning dive coffee service & treats). Can't wait to go back again!
