eagles Nest dive site map, Yap Micronesia

Dominant features
This area just north of Lionfish Wall is somewhat reminiscent of Caribbean dive sites. Large coral heads are surrounded by expanses of white sandy bottom. A small coral bommie called the Eagle’s Nest sitting in about 50 ft. (15 M) of water on a sandy plateau sometimes hosts several Eagle Rays swimming slowly around it. The sandy plateau tapers down to a flat sandy bottom at a depth of 130 ft. (40 M).

Corals
Large coral outcroppings in the shallow areas. Smaller patches of corals and some purple soft coral on the slope and near the bottom.

Fish Life
Turtles and Stingrays Sharks are often sighted in the area. Occasionally, large schools of Barracuda are also seen. In the shallows, Morays and Lionfish are easy to find.

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
