Counting Down to 2014

IMG_8526We’re wrapping up this year with some great diving and very diverse international crowd.

The new year brings several things, namely great weather and mating mantas as well as the European dive show circuit.

Most of the managers are packing up and headed to France, Germany and Switzerland on a business safari.

IMG_8538For those of you attending any of the upcoming dive shows in Europe, stop by the booth and say hi. There will be a best of Micronesia promotion and the details on how to get the most out of your trip.

Find out how to visit two countries, get into different dive environments, have new big animal encounters and experience two cultures – without paying extra for it.

That’s one thing that we’ll be talking about more next year to help travelers get the most out of their Micronesian vacation.

IMG_8620Another 2014 rollout is a very special way to get in on some expedition diving in Yap and it’s outer island atolls.

MantaTrust.org is leading a luxury liveaboard expedition in Yap, Ngulu and Ulithi from Manta Ray Bay with Dive Damai.

This is an opportunity to dive pristine reefs surrounding uninhabited islands in Yap state on a manta ray research expedition.

IMG_8671There’s two trips lined up that will get you into unique diving while supporting the conservation and protection of Micronesian manta rays.

Download the Expedition Info.

2014 will be eventful with special packages just about every month – by the way, you can get this info sent to you via email by joining the Manta Report quarterly newsletter.

Some of those are:

Bill’s been busy helping people plan their travel to all of Micronesia and it’s helping.

Many travel agents and wholesalers don’t have the routes off-hand that can get you here in less time and the most direct from anywhere in the world – that information is a click away by just emailing bill@mantaray.com.

As far as 2013 goes, this is my signing off post, after this it’s all fun and games until next year. Happy new year everyone!

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

Bill and his family run a great dive resort, rooms are spacious and comfortable. Restaurant and bar provide good range of food and drink. Bill and his dive guides know the reef intimately and the diving is spectacular. Bill and his family make for a very friendly and rewarding experience in Yap.read more
