New Manta ID – “Gabe”

2017-03-03_1145

This is citizen science.

Manta Mania 2017 produced 2 new manta ray IDs in the Yap Manta Project database.

This budding male put on a magical moment for one diver and her camera.

One of the most beautiful diving environments in Yap is the Caverns amphitheater in calm clear water, add a cleaning manta ray in the sun to the picture and it’s nothing short of magic.

“Gabe” is a 21 year-old member of the Yap family who is battling cancer and had the opportunity to dive with these rays before starting his second treatment.

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
