Dominant features
Located in Gabach Channel, Crescent Reef is usually done as a drift dive, either in or out of the channel depending on the tide. A bit deeper than most dives in Yap, the action is excellent, with a large school of blackbar barracudas showing up almost everytime, as well as schools of striped snappers, black snappers, fusiliers, bumphead parrotfish and big groupers. On top of this, schooling scalloped hammerheads have been seen on a regular basis!

Corals
Dramatic dropoffs, walls and formations with sunlit holes.

Fish Life
Scalloped hammerhead sharks, huge Napoleon wrasses, blackbar barracudas and lots of schooling snappers, fusiliers, bumbhead parrotfish and big groupers.

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
