Dominant features
A gentle slope with large coral bommies. A great night dive for exploring among the rocky shelves and bommies before coming to the channel entrances where there is active fishlife. Remnants of a subsea telegraph cable laid by the Germans at the turn of the century can be seen in places along the top edge of the reef. The cable was a communications link that reached to the Asian mainland at Singapore.

Corals
Being on the windward side of the island, the hard corals and rock formations tend to be more rounded in order to withstand the wave action. At night numerous crinoids can be found.

Fish Life
On night dives, this site yields a large number of Lionfish and bright red Stonefish. You may also see huge Sea Hares with brilliant blood red coloration that look like a Nudibranch, but are nearly a foot long.

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
