Hands Free Yap

Bill made it even more convenient to dive Yap. After breakfast on the Mnuw you can walk to the boat with only your sunblock to meet your gear… all of it. This upgrade came in the form of a few dozen Manta Ray branded Armor dive bags and a new luxury guest policy that says you really don’t have to worry about anything, not even your personal gear.

Hands-free Manta Ray Bay Diving

Yap Divers Convenience Bill is constantly trying to improve the diver’s experience here and what better than less for you to do during your stay.

Everything starts out at your personal locker in the dive shop, the entire day’s gear cycle is handled for you – from your locker to the boat, from the boat to rinse tanks, from the rinse tanks to your locker.

On the boats, each diver has a covered station with their bc/reg setup and their personal gear bag under the seat. As long as it’s in the bag, you’re good to go.

So far Bill’s initiative has been well-received and smiling guests are the result. VIP service has been added to the Yap Divers hospitality offer and now it’s like having scuba sherpas in Manta Ray Bay t-shirts around here.

  1. Walk to the boat with ONLY your sunblock???? Maybe at least add a bathing suit to that list unless you want everyone to arrive at the boat au natural. 🙂

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
