    The most amazing diving holiday ever Best of Maldives, Maldives in April

    We were transferred to the scubaspa yang at the last moment, it was wonderful. The crew were amazing and could not do enough for us. The main highlight was of course the diving, the manta rays for me were the best and the sharks blew me away. My dive guide, Hooserm was just the best. Thank you scubaspa yang.

    Wow what a way to do a live a board!! Best of Maldives, Maldives in March

    I love the combination of catering for divers and non-divers. The spa and snorkelling and shore execursions are fantastic. the staff is actually the highlight of the trip. Nothing is ever to much for them. The service is always with a smile and very quickly they learn how you like your drinks, what your preferneces are and they cater to these effortlessly. they go out of their way to make you feel special and welcome. The diving crew is fantastic from the dive guides to the support staff on the Dhoni everything is effortless.The movie night under the stars and the beach BBQ was really memorable. This is a must take trip.

    Our first but certainly not our last trip aboard Scuba Spa Ying. Everything about the trip from the bat, to the staff and the diving was top shelf - as one of our fellow passengers said "it might be possible to find something to complain about but you'd have to look really really hard!" If you're contemplating a dive trip in the Maldives - all we can say is book Scuba Spa - you won't regret it!

    Perfect Balance Maldives Central - South Tour, Maldives in December

    ScubaSpa Ying provides a truly world class experience. The staff and management were always anticipating anything you may want or need, remembering each guests preferences and requests. The boat itself is quite impressive providing plenty of areas to lounge and relax. Having a spa onboard made this trip luxurious, and offered many types of massage and couples treatments. The island BBQ was one of our favorite memories as the staff went above and beyond to make it a great evening. Our only constructive recommendation would be the 'all inclusive' price should include basic drinks all day (coffee, tea & soda), which would also be included with drinks instead of paying for both the alcohol and soda.

    The ultimate luxury diving trip Maldives Central - North Tour, Maldives in December

    Sadly a lot of the coral is suffering from bleaching in the Maldives. The beauty of diving from a liveaboard is the ability to keep moving and the local area knowledge of the crew in taking us to the best dving spots full of beautiful coral and fish. The food, service, and facilities on board are exceptional. They also teach diving to complete beginners or help you get advanced or specialised certifications. I managed to complete my underwater photography certification. Other did their beginner Open Water or their Advanced Open Water. Everything about this trip was exceptional and I would highly recommend ScubaSpa Ying or Yang to anyone wanting a relaxing or a diving holiday to the Maldives.

    Beautiful boat and wonderful crew! Maldives Central - North Tour, Maldives in December

    The beautiful boat and awesome crew was definitely the best part of the trip. Diving almost seem secondary! But the dive team was excellent too, and I love how detailed each briefing before a dive was. It makes me feel a lot more comfortable about what to look out for. I felt well taken care of by the dive team. Food was excellent (the steak dinner was so good) and the restaurant crew are always so friendly. Spa section was gorgeous, although I wish I could afford more of the massages! Do note that the passenger are of a more mature crowd (which is excellent when coming to giving me tips on diving!) and the scene is a lot more chill. As there can be up to half the boat passengers being on a non-diving package (usually the spouse of a diver), the dive scene may be less intense than the average liveaboard one would expect. A great Maldivian experience!

    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!

    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!
