É Verão no Hemisfério Norte – Hora de Mergulhar em Yap!

A temporada de Mergulho em Yap é… todo ano, mas a mudança das estações traz atrativos distintos. Agora vemos mantas diariamente mas em grupos menores, mas os ventos diminuem e pode-se mergulhar facilmente ao redor de toda a ilha com mar parado e águas cristalinas.

Temos mantas nas estações de limpeza da laguna, tubarões rondando o paredão de coral em Vertigo e quilômetros de recifes para mergulhar enquanto os ventos alísios não retornam, já no outono boreal.

Temos registrado excelentes mergulhos nas paredes do sul, com grandes grupos de xaréus e também atuns muito próximos – os pelágicos estão dando um show. Em Yellow Wall vimos um bando de raias-chita que sempre estão nas redondezas.

Outro ciclo da Natureza que chegou e é sempre divertido de ver é o da reprodução dos polvos. Por algumas semanas estamos tendo encontros com polvos em todos os mergulhos, muitos deles avistando casais em movimento.

 

 

Nas águas de Yap sempre tem algo acontecendo. Temos um mês agora em que as sépias estão no raso, também em pares, e não se assustam quando você se aproxima ávido com sua câmera.

O tempo é de aproveitar a água azul e a vida marinha nas paredes externas do recife de coral em águas tranquilas.

Nosso próximo evento especial aqui vai ser receber a criançada no Kids Sea Camp e Semana do Mergulho em Família, e também estamos nos organizando para nossa  photography party coincidente com o Dia do Trabalho norte-americano (primeira semana de setembro – ideal pra quem quiser aproveitar o 7 de Setembro também!).

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

We were from 11.08 to 18.08 at the Manta Ray Bay resort and had unforgettable days there 😍In total we made 12 dives with wonderful encounters. Highlights were, of course, the manta rays in the Goofnuw Channel and many white tip reef sharks in the Shark City 🦈 But also we saw eagle rays, turtles 🐢 and buffalo head parrotfish. The hotel is beautiful and the whole team does a great job there. The food on the ship Mnuw, as well as the home-brewed beer are excellent. Thank you again to the whole team of Manta Ray Bay Resort and Yap Divers 👏🏼We also did a one-day land tour to explore the many beautiful places of this unique island. The beach is like in paradise🏝, stone money and relics from the second world war very worth to see! You find there also culturally typical houses with different meaning and use! It would be nice if more visitors would come to this great island and appreciate the great work that is done there! Anyway, we really enjoyed it and would come back anytime 🙏🏻✌🏼read more

Bill and his family run a great dive resort, rooms are spacious and comfortable. Restaurant and bar provide good range of food and drink. Bill and his dive guides know the reef intimately and the diving is spectacular. Bill and his family make for a very friendly and rewarding experience in Yap.read more
