Dominant Features
Vertical walls that are very much alive on both sides of Nimpal Inlet. The shallow entrance to the inlet prevents entry by boats seeking a sheltered surface interval.

Corals
Due to this portion of the wall extending much deeper than most of the other walls, this is one of the few places on Yap’s reef that black coral and deep water sea fans can be found, though they are most frequently located below 120′.

Fish Life
Typical of many of the walls on the western side of the island, reef fish are found in numbers near the top of the wall and schooling gamefish and pelagics are often sighted by keeping an eye trained towards the blue side of the dive.

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

Offers one of the best accommodation service. It also has a uniquely designed restaurant.

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
