Diving on the Scubaspa Yang in the Maldives

If you are ready to have an unforgettable and relaxing luxury dive holiday in the Maldives, you are in the right place. The 50m (165 feet) long and 11m (36 feet) Scubaspa Yang liveaboard has an exceptional style and luxurious comfort, together with activities for every traveler to be engaged in.

The main feature that makes this liveaboard stand from its competition is a perfect combination of diving and spa features. And that is because Scubaspa Yang has been designed with both divers and spa-goers in mind. As such, it is the perfect vessel for those traveling with partners who are not divers themselves.

For divers, offering dive trips year-round, the Scubaspa Yang experience will stay sealed in long after the journey. But any traveling partner who is not a big fan of diving can relax in one of the plentiful spa facilities or enjoy one of the daily yoga sessions. Of course, daily snorkeling adventures around the beautiful Maldivian atolls are also offered.
