Spanish Wall dive site map, Yap Micronesia

Dominant Features
Usually done as a slow drift dive past the slopes & walls. You’ll find steeply descending slopes high- lighted by a series of vertical walls from 60 – 85 ft. (18 – 25 M). Each of the walls is roughly 50 meters long.

This part of the reef takes it’s name from the delicate, white Pulse corals which look like Spanish lace and grow in the alcoves, crevices & undercuts. These lace corals will only be found in niches that are sheltered from heavy wave & current action. There is also an abundance of pink & purple lace coral growing among the soft corals.

Fish Life
Expect a full range of pelagics and larger reef fish down below 30 ft. (9 M) and when you face the Blue. The deeper sections of the wall are visited by sharks more often than the upper reef. You’ll find morays if you look for them.

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
