Manta Ray Bay Resort & Yap Divers finds the manta rays of Yap

There has been a lot of talk going around recently that the manta rays of Yap have been pretty shy.  Well that may have some element of truth in it but for sure they have not left Yap, far from it, they are still here just like always, just in a different place.  And as Yap Divers are the number operator on the island and number one operator for ensuring the dive sites are well maintained, it was us that found the location.  The rays have moved to a new cleaning station in Mi’l Channel and up to 12 were spotted a couple of mornings ago.  The reef is very shallow, coming to within 20ft of the surface, so it is heaven for snorkelers as well as SCUBA divers.  Is there a better place to add a new certification card and pass your ”Manta Ray Awareness Course”?

The sharks of vertigo are becoming true models as they come closer to you and let you take some great action shots in incomparable visibility.  Nimpal on the west side of Yap has been declared a marine protected area and as such the numbers and types of fish there is unbelievable.  The southern part of the island with Yap Caverns, Lionfish Wall and Yellow Wall remains our guests’ favorite, as the diversity of fish, the colors, clarity and more will satisfy all your needs.

2011 is promising to be a great year of diving and we wish you all the best for 2011 and look forward to showing you the gems of Yap that make it one of the top dive locations on the planet.

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
