5 Manta Suites
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 isn't the unpleasant gap between the mattresses. With the very generous size, the superbly appointed seating area and the 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 and apart from the occasional boat or sea bird your views will be uninterrupted.
We know you'll be more than a little blown away!!

3 Dolphin Suites
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 as we want you to truly experience the Maldives, even when you are in your room. To achieve this, 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

1 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 ... Go on, spoil yourself.

12 Sea Star Cabins
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.

DIVING

You have two options for a diving vacation on board Scubaspa Ying: either you book a Schba Holiday Package or a Scba&Spa Holiday Package. 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 with us. These waters are exceptionally friendly and welcoming with a vibrant array of sea life, with its exotic colours and indescribable beauty. This enchanting world will cascade your senses with mesmerizing images. Whether you are on an outside reef, a thila or a manta ray feeding station. Whether enjoying the interaction with a comical turtle, trying to absorb the majestic presence of a whale shark or looking at a tiny nudibranch, whilst remaining safe in the depths of the ocean you will be in total awe. The connection will be made and will draw you back dive after glorious dive. We'll be there to make it happen.

The Scuba option is only open to certified divers. Once onboard, those who have booked the Spa option can request a Discover Scuba Diving or maybe even an Open Water Course.

You will only need to assemble your equipment once as the crew will care for this after your first dive and will be filling your tank in-situ. Your dive gear will be stored on board for you convenience and there is a fresh water tub for rinsing your cameras, computers etc.

Your dive boat offers both sunny and shaded areas onboard during the transfers to and from the dive sites and has toilet facilities for you comfort and convenience. We will be serving drinking water should you require refreshment. As for getting in and out of the water, the designer has placed four entry/exit points as well as creating a large water level platform at the stern.
