Dive Overview

Scuba diving in the warm turquoise Maldivian waters is a unique and truly magical experience and the philosophy of Scubaspa is to bring this “magic” to every single dive you take.

The experienced and professional team of Instructors and Dive Masters has an in-depth local knowledge, which in our opinion is vital in taking you to the very best parts of the very best dive sites. 

Their mission is twofold. First comes your safety, nothing is more important.    Second is your total pleasure. They want your dive to be everything you dreamed it would be and more.

If you are a certified diver you must bring your diving license and your logbook as well. All divers need to provide a medical certificate issued within the last year. It is advisable to bring your own dive gear but not necessary. All necessary equipment is available for rent onboard.

I don't know where to begin! I guess to start by saying this was a trip of a lifetime and ScubaSpa and employees made it that much more special. Everything from the boat accommodations to the food to the service personnel...all 5 star. We were treated like royalty and truly felt special the entire trip. The dive masters were incredible and we experienced amazing sealife. Our son got certified on ScubaSpa and i can't imagine him being in safer hands. They were thorough and detailed about his training and we never once worried about him diving without us. The chefs served 3 square meals a day that appealed to everyone's palette...so many choices for every meal! The bartenders were so much fun and we loved their crazy and delicious concoctions! The rooms were large and comfortable...the linens were soft. The bathrooms were a bit small...truly tiny showers, but we didn't spend much time in the bathrooms so it didn't really matter. The spa staff was very knowledgeable and asked all the right questions with each service we chose. We were very impressed with their skills. When our last day regrettably arrived...we all cried a bit knowing that we had to leave our ScubaSpa family...and truly, they make you feel like family! We are already saving up so we can come back! No need to look any further for a liveaboard...you won't find a better one!
