For Manta Ray Bay
The arrival of a lot more guests for week 2 of Manta Fest saw a few more boats leaving the docks today. Many came in via Palau and arrived at the wee hours, so we took advantage of the late high tide to visit the new cleaning station.
Others went to the beautiful hard coral walls of Gufnuw Channel and the old stand-by for macro, Slow & Easy.
Tonight will be a Week 2 orientation on the Mnuw and no doubt a few lies will be told and some libations drunk.
And so we kick off Manta Fest week 2 with a bang and a nice Micronesian sunset!!
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 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
