Building Community


Join Manta Ray Bay, the Micronesian Conservation Coalition and Matson Shipping in providing a unique family island adventure, engaging children in the marine environment and sponsoring local children to participate in the interactive ecology workshops.

This event is a hands-on experience with a science-based theme that puts kids of all ages into a “marine classroom” to learn about our world as a family.

The Acker family, Manta Ray Bay and the Micronesian Conservation Coalition are committed to community and have teamed up with regional sponsor, Matson Shipping, to bring the community into this unique event.

For every guest child a local child is being sponsored to join the program and participate. Yapese kids will be in the water, on the boats and in the lab with our participants learning about the ecosystem in which they live.
