Thank you very much for visiting this page. We are thrilled to meet you as we would like to start informing you on how great your dive vacation to Yap will be.
My name is Bill Acker and I’m the founder/owner of Manta Ray Bay Resort & Yap Divers. I arrived on Yap 40 years ago and consider it my home. I personally discovered all the dive sites and together with my family and fabulous staff, we are proud to own and run Micronesia’s only dedicated dive resort.
What makes Yap so special and different from other dive destinations? We have a permanent manta ray population, abundant reef sharks, great walls, mating mandarin fish, macro life and pristine hard corals. Yap attracts barely 1,000 divers per year which basically means our divers have the dive sites to themselves. No overcrowded dive sites like most famous dive destinations and relatively short boat rides to the dive sites. Furthermore, Yap is one of the few islands where the unique traditional culture is still being practiced which means you can experience a land/cultural tour you won’t be able to experience anywhere else in the world.
I hope I have made you eager to find out more about Yap and your next dive vacation with us.
Simply fill in your name and email address in the form below and I’ll get back to you with a special offer for your next dive vacation as well as “Yap’s Facts E-book” giving you information about the island, diving and culture.
Looking forward to assist you in any way I can. Please feel free to ask any questions you might have.
All the best,
Bill “Pops” Acker, the Manta Man
