The 50m Scubaspa Yang liveaboard is the sister vessel to the Scubaspa Ying which offers year-round diving holidays in the Maldives. Winner of multiple awards, the Scubaspa Yang offers a true luxury diving experience in the Maldives. Up to 40 guests can be accommodated onboard in 10 cabins and 9 suites, of which there is a choice of queen, king, or twin bed configurations. One suite and one cabin can be converted into a triple to accommodate 3 guests. All cabins feature en-suite bathrooms and individually controlled air conditioning and the 9 suites located on the main deck all offer panoramic sea views. 

The restaurant is located on the main deck and is where three buffet-style meals plus an a-la-carte menu are served. There are live cooking stations and internationally qualified chefs are able to cater to all dietary needs. There is also an alfresco dining area at the rear of the main deck and there will be the opportunity to enjoy a BBQ on a deserted island during your stay. The onboard spa is 300m2 with 6 treatment rooms, including a double room for couples.

Diving from the Scubaspa Yang takes place from the accompanying dive dhoni, which carries all the equipment, including the air compressors, nitrox filling station, rinse tanks, and dive equipment storage. Experienced multi-lingual dive instructors and divemasters can cater to all diving levels and abilities. As a PADI 5 Star Dive Resort, a variety of courses, from beginner to advanced can be taken on board. Itineraries cover the ‘Best of Maldives’, which includes the Male Atolls, Ari Atolls, and Rasdhoo & Vaavu Atoll, and is available all year, except for February & March when the Scubaspa yacht travels to the ‘Deep South’ for more remote diving suited to more experienced divers.

the best dive guides

All 17 dives were amazing and unique. The guides planned each dive thoughtfully, based on weather, current, water clarity, guests abilities and interests, etc. We saw mantas, sting rays, eagle rays, sharks, colorful fishes and corals, turtles, eels, dolphins, and even a tiny octopus.

Incredible experience!

My experience aboard ScubaSpa was fabulous! The staff were so kind, attentive and catered to your every wish. The food was absolutely delicious. One would not go on a Liveaboard for the food, but this was really a highlight of the trip. The dives were amazing. We saw so many things from mantas to rays to sharks and so many colorful fish. The dive guides were patient and the staff aboard the dive boat were so helpful. The attention to detail was impeccable and the staff really catered to your needs. I cannot wait to take another voyage with ScubaSpa.
