M'il Ridge dive site map, Yap Micronesia

Dominant features
A 30 ft. (9 M) coral ridge across Mi’l Channel. This intensifies the tidal current, thereby creating an easy cleaning station for the Mantas. As many as thirty Mantas ranging in size from about 6 to 13 ft. (2 to 4 M) have been sighted from this ridge at one time.

Hard corals interspersed with small clumps of soft coral and anemones.

Fish Life
Schools of Jacks and Black Snappers congregate on the ridge. White Tip Reef Sharks regularly cruise the ridge along with occasional Gray Reef Sharks. A wide variety of small reef fish are present to provide cleaning services for the Mantas.

Special Instructions
Stay on the bottom near the edges of the ridge. This allows the mantas clear passage in & out of the lagoon. When divers are blocking the main cleaning area the Mantas turn, and retreat rather than hover to be cleaned or make multiple passes over the ridge.

The staff couldn't be more friendly and accommodating. Food is good, (worth upgrading to include all meals). Diving is good 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 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 more
