    I’d like to be Under the sea – Bill’s Update #12

    Posted by Manta Ray Bay Resort on July 14, 2021
    Divers within a certain age bracket, but also music lovers from younger generations for sure know the Beatles’ song “Octopus’s Garden” that was released in 1969.

    Sittin’ On the Dock of the Bay – Bill’s Update #11

    Posted by Manta Ray Bay Resort on April 20, 2021
    Initially my plan was to write a blog every three-to-four-weeks, but scrolling through the Facebook posts, I realized it has been eight weeks or so since the last time you heard from me. Is there nothing to share with you? On the contrary, lots of developments are in progress, but none of them give us the answer to the question: “When?”.

    We are still fortunate – Bill’s Update #10

    Posted by on February 14, 2021
    It is heartbreaking to see countries around the world struggling to get their citizens vaccinated. Long lines, people showing up for their shots but are sent home without one, people cutting in line, traveling to locations other than their home area, months-long waiting lists... the stories are many. Patricia and I turned in our vaccination...

    Light at the end of the tunnel – Bill’s Update #9

    Posted by on December 5, 2020
    While writing down the title of this blog, I got curious where, how and when the phrase “There’s always light at the end of the tunnel” originated. After browsing for an hour or so I gave up as there are so many different versions that I decided that everyone has his/her own tunnel. Therefore, everyone...

    Accepting the lemons (for now) – Bill’s Update #8

    Posted by on November 2, 2020
    Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining and boat trips with my grandkids is something I’ve been looking forward to for many years. Having the “luxury” to pick any day of the week instead of being on the boat with our divers for a few days every week, kind of “bothers” me though. At the...

    Lucky 13 – Bill’s Update #7

    Posted by on September 25, 2020
    Among all the – almost depressing – news from around the world there’s also some good news that reaches our shores. We’re very proud to have been voted in the top 25 of resorts for the (South) Pacific region which included Australia and New Zealand. Knowing that there are more that 20,000 resorts/hotels in this...

    Prophetic Words – Bill’s Update #6

    Posted by on July 24, 2020
    I told my staff back in February when customers were asking about Summer travel plans in view of COVID-19, “If we’re still in a lockdown this Summer, the world has a serious problem”. Everyone likes it when their words became reality, but man I wish I were wrong when I said those words! I am...

    We miss you – Bill’s Update #5

    Posted by on June 24, 2020
      As many of you know, deep sea fishing is, after diving, my favorite hobby and last Saturday together with my son-in-law Francis, our former maintenance manager Teolu and William, one of our boat captains, we tried our luck. Where basically every dive you do on Yap guarantees you to see beautiful marine life, fishing...

    Positive Signs – Bill’s Update #4

    Posted by on May 24, 2020
    While sitting here on my porch with a nice cup of coffee, watching the sunrise over the Pacific Ocean and trying to decide what to write to all of you very special people, it dawned on me just how lucky we are here in Yap to have such good Internet connections to the world.  Without...

    Getting used to the new – hopefully temporary – normal – Bill’s Update #3

    Posted by on April 25, 2020
    The situation here at Manta Ray Bay Resort & Yap Divers is strange. After more than 33 years in business there are no divers to dive and talk with. Most of the staff are at home and no happy hour sessions are taking place on the Mnuw.  Instead of a hectic, always changing schedule, I...

    Sitting Out the Corona Crisis on Yap – Bill’s Update #2

    Posted by on March 29, 2020
    You will notice that we are in the 2nd week of updates on how we’re dealing with the corona virus (COVID-19) outbreak. In reality we’re in week #8 as the lock-down basically started on the 1st of February. We were hoping that it will be over soon, however instead of getting back to normal, the world...

    Sitting Out the Corona Crisis on Yap – Bill’s Update

    Posted by on March 22, 2020
    “What a difference a day makes”………….Most of us know Dinah Washington’s hit from the 50’s, but for the Manta Ray Bay Family, that day was definitely January 31 of this year. While travelling back with Patricia from a very successful BOOT show in Germany, the news reached us that the FSM – to my knowledge...
