As Mantas de Yap em Preto & Branco

IMG_7709Amigos de Yap e do Mergulho, a atividade por aqui está ficando ainda mais animada com o aumento dos comportamentos reprodutivos.

Durante a estação de acasalamento, uma experiência de mergulho típica numa estação de limpeza é se ver múltiplos animais com uma só coisa em suas mentes…

Isso quer dizer que as mantas estão menos preocupadas com a presença dos mergulhadores e mais focadas em impressionar potenciais parceiros amorosos.

As grandes fêmeas deslizam para fora de nosso campo de visão, seguidas de perto por numerosos machos, e retornam inesperadamente fazendo os mergulhadores se agacharem a cada nova passagem, logo sobre nossas cabeças.

IMG_7724Por esses dias as mantas estão sendo um tema quente dentro e fora das águas do recife – o Estado de Yap está pondo bastante esforço em vitaminar a lei do Santuário de Raias-Manta e estruturando novas normas para proteger essa população residente.

São essas raias-manta, ademais da cultura tradicional da ilha, que puseram Yap em definitivo na lista de melhores lugares do mundo para se mergulhar.

O Departamento de Recursos e Desenvolvimento, a Agência de Proteção Ambiental e o Centro de Visitantes de Yap estão agindo para preservar tudo isso para você e para o mundo.

 

Enquanto Isso, no Escritório…

Bill está craque em organizar uma rota via Tóquio/Yap/Palau para que não se tenha de passar tempo demais em Guam na vinda. Ou, se você vem do Brasil, também pode fazer rotas via Cairns (Austrália) ou Manila (Filipinas) agregando outros destinos de Mergulho na viagem.

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

We were from 11.08 to 18.08 at the Manta Ray Bay resort and had unforgettable days there 😍In total we made 12 dives with wonderful encounters. Highlights were, of course, the manta rays in the Goofnuw Channel and many white tip reef sharks in the Shark City 🦈 But also we saw eagle rays, turtles 🐢 and buffalo head parrotfish. The hotel is beautiful and the whole team does a great job there. The food on the ship Mnuw, as well as the home-brewed beer are excellent. Thank you again to the whole team of Manta Ray Bay Resort and Yap Divers 👏🏼We also did a one-day land tour to explore the many beautiful places of this unique island. The beach is like in paradise🏝, stone money and relics from the second world war very worth to see! You find there also culturally typical houses with different meaning and use! It would be nice if more visitors would come to this great island and appreciate the great work that is done there! Anyway, we really enjoyed it and would come back anytime 🙏🏻✌🏼read more
