Amigos do mergulho e de Yap, avanços na legislação estão acontecendo a favor de nossas raias-manta – a Divisão Marinha do Departamento de Recursos Naturais e a Agência de Proteção Ambiental do Estado de Yap estão trabalhando na regulamentação e criando um plano de manejo para o Santuário de Mantas, criado pela lei 7-36 de 2008.

O Estado de Yap tem a felicidade de contar para tanto com as informações científicas de Julie Hartup, Gerente de Projetos da pesquisa de mantas da ONG MantaTrust na Federação da Micronésia. Ela está disponibilizando às agências governamentais  anos de pesquisas sobre a população de mantas do recife da Micronésia.

Essa informação científica vai ajudar a focar as normas protetoras e o plano de manejo de conservação das raias-manta ora em preparação. Com as mantas sob pressão em vários lugares do mundo, vítimas da degradação dos habitats e a busca de suas estruturas branquiais para uso em simulacros de medicina tradicional chinesa, oásis de proteção como Yap crescem ainda mais em importância.

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
