What Do You Call 6 Swiss in a Pool Without a Beer?

Recently we had the honor of having 6 divers from Switzerland among our other international dive guests.  Turns out these folks were not a group but just happened to book Yap at the same time and thus naturally became a group.  That’s one of the great things about diving, you see different places, explore different cultures and meet different people – some of whom become lifelong friends.  Hopefully that will be true for Markus & Petra, Thomas & Martin and Beno & Sylvia.

Markus & Petra came because of Mr. Jan Sledsens, our Dive Operations Manager, who was representing us at the Zurich dive show and was taken to a unique “whisky bar” by Patrick & Cyril former guests of ours.  As so often happens in bars, Jan bellied up to the bar and began a conversation with the bartender and after a few samples of different whiskies from around the world, Markus – the aforementioned bartender was smitten.  Lo and behold, 2 months later, he and his wife were checking into our dedicated dive resort.

Thomas & Martin managed to make their own way here as part of a larger Micronesian dive holiday.  These guys were very special as both are hearing impaired yet got along with everyone very easily.  They have been traveling together before and have hiked and biked a large portion of the world.  Before leaving, they mentioned that their next trip to Micronesia would be a Yap standalone trip.

Jan met Beno & Sylvia at the FESPO dive show in Zurich where they were discussing a Philippine, Indonesia & Micronesia trip.  They asked Jan if Yap should be one of their Micronesia stops and after a few minutes, Yap was on the schedule.  Beno has posted a short movie on our facebook site and one of the highlights of his trip was getting his teeth cleaned by several cleaner shrimps at Slow & Easy.

Now back to the original title of this post, what do you call 6 Swiss in a pool without a beer?  Anyone with a good answer to this question is encouraged to let us know by commenting on this post.

Markus & Petra, Beno & Sylvia and Martin & Thomas

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
