Best liveaboard experience!!

Do not think twice about choosing ScubaSpa as your provider for a live aboard trip in the Maldives. The boats are huge, new and beautifully crafted. Enough space for everyone to find their own place to relax in-between dives but also to hang out and mingle if that's what you're feeling. The food was always plentiful and delicious with a different theme each day. The diving was first class, made even more enjoyable by the happy, friendly and fun dive guides. Cannot speak highly enough of our experience only to say that we will be going back to do another trip and that certainly says something as we are usually a 'don't do it twice' type people.

Sad to Leve , I need another week

The staff were amazing right across the whole process from booking to boat hands. The Spa was too expensive especially for people coming from Asia if the Spa was priced at half the price it was advertised at I would have definitely a few .... Till next time , Keep Smiling Des Finegan

A holiday of a lifetime

Being a learner diver, the diving was fantastic, all the dive leaders were so lovely & helpful, all the crew were friendly and generally lovely people. Food was delicious. Everything was taken care of, especially all the dive gear. Very safety conscious so felt safe all the time. The crew on the Dive boat always their to lend you a hand getting in & out of the water, sorted any problem you may have. The whole experience was a highlight, the night we were treated dinner on an island, felt like we were in a postcard, unbelievable. I could go on and on, we are a very lucky family to have had the experience.

I think everything was a highlight this trip did not disappoint best ever holiday I think we chose the best boat to be on just fantastic... The only negitive thing I could say is the price of drinks 2 Bloody Mary's cost $46 I think that is outrageous, it just means for them your less likely to spend anything at the bar! But I would certainly recommend Scubaspa Yang and if I am ever lucky enough to go to the Maldives again I would go with them.😊

First liveaboard experience, let's just say the standard has been put through the ceiling.

Meeting 17 other like minded people who are all open and happy to be there. We created a lovely bond amongst others which totally enhanced the trip. The night dive to the jetty was the most amazing dive yet for us. To have sting rays, reef shark and fish swimming around you, on and through you in qty was exhilarating. The food that was prepared by the chefs was really diverse and catered for everyone at the highest standard even though it was buffet style. So delicious, so many courses and delicious flavours.

Most luxurious liveaboard I have ever been on.

Seeing the whale sharks and manta rays was awesome. The night dive with the nurse sharks was a great experience. Having your gear sorted, washed and ready to go for the next dive by the staff was fantastic.
