Discover the divine world underwater or enjoy daily treatments in the sumptuous spa - this is your holiday to enjoy your way! There's no doubting that the Scubaspa experience will remain with you long after your journey home.

There are 2 identical boats to chose from - Scubaspa Ying and Scubaspa Yang. Each of the boats has the same layout - there are 4 elegantly appointed cabin grades to chose from, spread across 4 decks. The Sea Star cabins and Cowrie suite are on the lower deck, all with double beds, air conditioning, safe and en suite shower room. The Cowrie suite has an additional sofa bed and is the widest option on the lower deck. Move up to the main deck and you find the 3 Dolphin suites and 5 Manta suites. The views are simply stunning - lie in bed and soak in paradise from the panoramic windows. The Dolphin suites have a king size bed, while the Manta suites are the largest cabins with a "larger than king" double bed or twin bed options. The Dolphin & Manta suites have a mini bar with a small lounge (armchair and desk). Please be sure to make your cabin requests at the time of booking.

Divers will love ScubaSpa. There are never more than 22 divers on the liveaboard at any one time so you get all the benefits of the vast mothership with small dive groups, split between the experienced dive guides. The dive dhoni is second to none, with practical side and rear entry points for ease in and out of the water. Tanks are well spaced, with plenty of room between divers. As you would expect, the boat crew are all highly professional - from your captain to his deck hands, from the cruise manager to your waiter, this elite team is here to help. Snorkelling equipment is available on board.

ScubaSpa is undeniably more than just a dive boat. Every area is light, spacious and beautifully styled. There is always a sunny or shaded area, where you can find peace, quiet and tranquility with the stunning backdrop of Maldivian islands floating past. The fly deck's terraced sunbathing design offers privacy. Jump in the jacuzzi or take time out to relax at the spa. This is 300 square m of pure pampering space, offering massage, aqua therapies, Ayurveda and beauty treatments. In the restaurant there is fine dining with an international flair. The main dining area is airy - the chef rightly prides himself on the outstanding cuisine and there's even a wine cellar on board. Delicious refreshments are in constant supply throughout the day from the two bars onboard. Regular excursions are arranged throughout the trip including a beach BBQ or open air presentation about Maldivian whalesharks.

We will confirm whether you will be reserved a space on board ScubaSpa Ying or ScubaSpa Yang at your time of booking. On rare occasions however, please be aware that the boat operators reserve the right to move you onto the sister ship for any reason, including logistical or technical issues.

    Manta Suite

    Situated on the main deck the Manta suites are the largest rooms on-board. Most of these suites have a bed that can be used as twin beds or a “bigger-than-super-king” double bed. But don’t worry, when used as a double, there is no unpleasant gap. With a panoramic three metre wide window, the Mantas benefit from a feel of light and space you rarely find on any safari vessel. The huge windows are set into the hull so there is no companionway outside, giving you total privacy.

    Dolphin Suite

    Dolphin Suite

    Our beautifully designed Dolphin suites are placed on the main deck and are totally stunning. Not only do they have a ‘king-size’ double bed, but these majestic suites have been designed to also accommodate a seating area. The Dolphins with their gorgeous ensuites would be fabulous enough, but we have placed huge three metre wide panoramic windows, set directly into the hull with no companionway outside, thus no foot traffic. Prepare your senses to be spoiled.

    Cowrie Suite

    Cowrie Suite

    Our Cowrie suite nestles snugly in the bow of the lower deck. This uniquely individual suite has a shape all of its own. Not only does it have a king-size double bed but its size allowed us the luxury of fitting a sofa that can be transformed into a very comfortable third bed. As the Cowrie spans the width of the bow it benefits from having four opening Portlights. This lavish air-conditioned suite also has a truly jaw-dropping ensuite which houses the largest shower on-board …

    Sea Star Cabin

    Sea Star Cabin

    Our sumptuous and spacious Sea Star Cabins are all situated on the lower deck. Every one is air-conditioned and has its own en-suite shower room. All Sea Stars have a king-size double bed, some even benefiting from a third bed. Each cabin is generously fitted with two opening Portlights. We have taken great care in ensuring that every detail of the cabin design harmoniously intertwines with the selected materials to create something we hope you will truly enjoy.
