Manta Mania 2018 Trip Report

 Diving Micronesia

Manta Mania 2019 Our fourth Manta Mania event brought divers and scientsts together to learn about Manta Rays, Sharks and Coral Reef Systems in a fun and social vacation package.

This year we had four presenting scientists specializing in marine mammals, deep sea corals, long term coral reef monitoring… and of course, manta rays!

This event is where we get to dive and learn from scientists who are on the front lines of marine conservation.

In classroom style workshops and evening media presentations at the open air bar, we learn about the lives of mantas and sharks, about human impact on the marine environment and what we can do to reduce it, about “twilight zone” research and how coral reef systems respond to sea temperatures and climate-related events.

This year we learned about the benefits of re-breather diving and how scientists use this equipment. Dr. Sonia Rowley specializes in deep sea corals and research in what’s called the “twilight zone”, 50 to 150 meters / 150 to 400 feet depths.

 Diving Micronesia

The event package is filled with three tank days, Mandarinfish, night and a shark feed dive.

Mating season brought the year’s best nature show in Yap, dancing mantas!

Manta Ray Diving Micronesia Manta rays were identified at 7 different dive sites, including the outer reef, along with the typical cleaning station encounters.

A new resident manta was identified during the week demonstrating good reproduction for our rays several years in a row.

Next Year’s event is February 9th – 16th!

It’s diving, it’s science, it’s conservation… and it’s a party, complete with a private beach bbq and special traditional bamboo stick dance put on by the family at Manta Ray Bay Resort on our private beach.

Our best big animal dive package happens during manta ray mating season where we observe multiple behaviors and interact with multiple animals on dives – get in on one of our hottest packages!

We stayed at the hotel and dove with Manta Ray divers in early December 2017. The hotel is very comfortable, well run and staffed with wonderful employees. During our visit my wife came down with an illness and the consideration and support from the hotel and dive staff could not have been better.read more

The staff couldn't be more friendly and accommodating. Food is good, (worth upgrading to include all meals). Diving is good too.read more

The best place to stay in Yap. The resort is really nice and clean, the scuba diving is great, and the docked ship that houses the bar, restaurant, and movie screen is very cool. I really enjoyed my stay here.read more

The whole place centers around the scuba diving operation. Probably better to find somewhere else if you're not a diver. The dive operation was generally good, but a little too laid back - schedules weren't always clear, and sometimes would change without any notice. Sometimes it was hard to tell if this was really because of changing tides/weather or because of the island pace of life. Pizza is a surprisingly good option at the restaurant.read more
