Gilmaan Wall dive site map, Yap Micronesia

Dominant Features
Vertical wall running northwest from Yap Caverns. Lots of crevices and overhangs. Due to it’s proximity to the southern tip of the Island, the life on this wall is very prolific.

Corals
Predominantly hard corals with very large blankets of brown Porite coral, some of which also play host to colorful tube worms. Frequent patches of Daisy corals interspersed among the hard corals. Patches of yellow soft coral under ledges at a depth of about 70 ft. (21 M) can be found when the current is running.

Fish Life
Lots of Squirrel Fish, Snappers, Groupers, large schools of small Anthias and occasional Lionfish. Expect a wide variety of reef and pelagic fish life. Clown Triggerfish are sometimes spotted near the bottom of the wall.

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
