Black Water Diving
Blackwater diving is being developed in Yap which is the nearest island to the some of deepest parts of the ocean.Bill is pleased to initiate blackwater diving in Yap and be able to offer another experience in your dive trip.
North American summer is our region’s least windy part of the year, making for favorable dive conditions with near-shore access to unique depths.
Exploration blackwater dives have produced cephalopods, baby sailfish, jellyfish of all sorts, crustaceans, juvenile fish, and squid predation behavior.
Yap sits on the rim of the Marianas Trench on the island’s Eastside, approximately 100 miles from Challenger Deep, the deepest on earth. We also have the Philippine Sea to the West – both are being explored for their blackwater potential.
Blackwater dives are now available at the resort as a specialty night dive and diving expeditions are being planned to explore the potential diving blackwater near the ocean’s deepest point.
We will send you more information as well as keep you in the loop by updating you with images, new information and the scoop on how our blackwater development is going, just tell us where to send it.
