About Scubaspa

The Maldives is a scuba divers’ dream destination and holiday paradise, boasting picture-perfect islands and crystal-clear waters teaming with exotic, colorful marine life.

Scubaspa's award-winning, beautiful luxury vessels combine scuba diving, impressive onboard spa, creative gourmet cuisine, yoga activities, stunning itineraries and outstanding service.  

On each of the two identical vessels, a crew of 30 ensures high staff to guest ratio and unparalleled personal service. Four spa therapists, a yoga master, four highly skilled chefs, and a guest services manager join the experienced dive crew to cater to every need.  Four expansive decks include space for quiet contemplation, sunset cocktails, outdoor dining under the stars, as well as an open-air cinema, gym and Jacuzzi. This is cruising the Maldives at its very best.

History

Launched in 2013 with Scubaspa Ying, this unique concept of a floating dive boat complete with spa was the dream of a passionate diver and his physiotherapist bride, who happened to spend their honeymoon in the Maldives. This luxury floating resort would appeal to both dedicated divers and non-diving partners, combining a world-class spa with world-class diving.  Scubaspa Ying was soon joined by an identical sister yacht, Scubaspa Yang in 2014 and in 2016 Scubaspa Maldives acquired world recognition with multiple awards, embodying the concept of a 'floating resort'.

Social Responsibility

The Maldives is one of the world's most vulnerable ecosystems, with its fragile biodiversity visibly affected by global environmental changes.  Scubaspa passionately supports government environment programmes to reduce waste with state-of-the-art waste water plants on board both vessels, plastic bottle compactors and regular beach cleaning activities.  Environmental awareness training is offered for local college students at the “Jamaluddin” school to educate the next generation in conservation issues. Scubaspa also cooperates closely with the Maldives Whale Shark Research Programme to promote the valuable work it undertakes.

Dive dhoni

Each main vessel, Scubaspa Ying and Scubaspa Yang, is accompanied by its own dive boat, which serves as a floating dive centre. Based on decades of dive experience in the Maldives, the dive vessels have been specifically designed, for your comfort and relaxation.

To get the most out of exploring the wonders beneath the surface, you need to feel calm and relaxed prior to your dive. Our dive boats make this exceptionally easy, from the ample space and comfortable seating to the multi entry points, stern platform and on-board toilet facilities.

The sun deck platform is a favourite lounging area after each dive.
