Maldives Luxury Cruise: Scuba, Spa & Island Hopping

Duration
8 Days
Prices:
On request

DELUXE | CRUISE: Board the luxury diving yacht ScubaSpa for a week-long island-hopping cruise through the Indian Ocean. This intimate vessel offers luxurious accommodations and three package options combining daily dives and/or on-board spa treatments. Whether you’re a diving enthusiast or simply want to unwind, you’ll find something for you.


This 8-day Maldives vacation takes you to some of the world’s best dive spots while staying about a luxury diving yacht with an on-board spa. It features deluxe accommodations and optional dives and beach excursions. 

Your journey begins in Male, the Maldivian capital, where you’ll check in to your diving vessel. The ScubaSpa will be your home for the following seven nights. This 5-star diving yacht accommodates up to 40 guests in 10 cabins and nine suites with great sea views and a variety of luxurious bedding options, as well as air conditioning and en-suite bathrooms with showers. The vessel is well-equipped for diving, but also has the added comforts of a spa that spans two decks and offers everything from open-air Thai massages and meditation lessons to traditional wellness treatments. After every day of diving, you can book spa treatments as the perfect way to stay limber and unwind. You can choose one of three package options to enjoy scuba, scuba and spa, or spa only during your cruise. 

Aboard the ScubaSpa, you’ll journey through the Maldives to visit world-famous diving spots and relax on pristine white-sand beaches. Get your bearings with a test dive at Lankan Point, known for its manta rays, before enjoying the company of colourful tropical fish and stingrays at Fish Tank. Then sail to Rasdhoo Atoll before enjoying the evening on Madivaru Finolhu Beach. Snorkel off the shores of Picnic Island and search for sharks, eels, and shipwrecks at a dive site near Rasdhoo Madivaru. At Fish Head, you’ll explore an underwater protected area, where fishing and collecting shells is banned. Enjoy the robust sealife and strong currents as you pass by grey reef sharks, tuna, and jackfish.

Continue to Maamigili Island and head on your first whale shark excursion, snorkelling or diving to find the migrating giant fish that pass through Maldivian waters each year. At Miyaru Kandu near Vaavu Atoll, you’ll dive to an area brimming with puffer fish, angel fish, and reef sharks, before enjoying more leisurely conditions off the Alimatha House Reef. Close out your dive journey at the South Male Atoll where you’ll drift alongside eagle rays and reef sharks at Guraidhoo Corner and spot mantis shrimp, parrotfish, snappers, and angel fish at comfortable Kuda Giri. 

You’ll then return to Male to disembark and connect back to the airport to head home.
