Dominant features
Inshore reef which gradually drops down from the surface to the sandy bottom. Many niches, crevices and outcropping provice provide shelters for many critters and nocturnal species, making “Slow and Easy“ a macro fan favorite and an ideal spot for night dives. The entry points are marked by buoys.

Coral
Good selection of hard corals and several whip corals. The rich nutrition of the inshore waters nourished an excellent number of various anemones, crinoids and sponges.

Fish life
From XS to XL. While bumphead parrotfishes and white-tip sharks often make visits to the reef, Slow and Easy is Yap’s macro heaven. Ask the guides for nudibranches, leaf fishes, pipe fishes, goby-and-shrimp action, stone fishes, white mantis shrimps, and other critters! Three juvenile Hawksbill turtles are seen most of the times.

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
