Manta Fest 2010…Yap, Micronesia

Each September the Manta Ray Bay hosts an exciting event called Manta Fest.  This year will be our fourth year running and will run from Sept 4 – 14.

We host Manta Fest each year with one simple aim.  That is for people who have a love of the sea and the life it supports to get together to share their knowledge, passion, pictures/films and stories.

Over the years we have been very fortunate to have some outstanding and well known SCUBA dive photographers/videographers take time out of their busy schedules and spend Manta Fest with us to share their knowledge and be on hand to teach and give tips on getting better footage and shots.  We host seminars and training sessions in the hotel to help our guests improve their skills behind the camera and also educate on the marine habitat and environment.  Of course there is also the bonus to go and dive with these professionals and chat on the dive boats.  In the evening the Crows Nest bar on the S/V Mnuw plays host to story-telling time and a chance to watch films shot by our presenters with a glass or two of our tasty in-house beer.

This year we will be joined by three talented people namely Andy Sallmon, Tim Rock and Ray Bullion.  They have all spent a lot of time in Yap and are great friends of the Manta Ray Bay and will make your vacation time with us just that little bit extra special.

So what are you waiting for book today!

We will be posting more information as the time draws closer.

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
