Dominant features
A vertical wall that curves in & out. Current usually less than 1/2 knot makes this an easy drift dive. This portion of the reef has a steeper wall than most of the sites on east side of the Island. Sometimes done as a night dive if the seas are particularly calm.

Corals
Big crevices running perpendicular to the reef are filled with many of the hardy, star and table corals. The wall is covered by a good variety of hard corals with occasional small soft corals mixed in.

Fish Life
Look for a lot of small schooling reef fish at the top of the wall. Turtles frequently sleep in crevices along this section of the reef. Sharks, Barracuda and Morays are seen in the daytime. Lionfish, Stonefish and Lobsters at night.

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
