The top 10 reasons to join a Liveaboard in the Maldives

Scubaspa Ying and Yang, identical sister boats, were launched in 2014 and are the largest vessels ever built in the Maldives.
Designed and sculpted using decades of experience in construction of sea vessels from the immense strength of its GRP hull and frame to the fine imported materials used to create a perfect balance of light and texture with spaciousness and intimacy, whilst advanced marine engineering ensures excellent sea going performance and comfort.
Although she takes up to 34 guests, only a maximum of 26 are divers (although this is rare it is 26) and groups are kept small and separared whilst diving and due to the size of the liveaboard it never seems even remotely busy.

Scubaspa Yang is an inspiration second to none, offering an unforgettable holiday of a lifetime on board a luxury safari vessel of the highest calibre.
Whether diving or enjoying daily treatments in the sumptuous Spa, you will receive the finest and very best from both worlds.
The Scubaspa experience will remain with you long after you journey home.
