Yap Divers – 25 Years of Excellence in Micronesia

I and my family, along with each of our more than 72 co-workers, join together to wish all of our past, current and future guests a very safe, happy and prosperous New Year.

2011 is the 25th anniversary of Yap Divers and I am very proud of this achievement.  Not a lot of dive operations have been owned and operated by the same person for 25 years.  Many of our staff have been with us for almost this entire time and that too is a fact I am quite proud of.

We have gone from a shop with one 24 foot dive boat and a stated goal of wanting 3 divers per week to a shop that is completely integrated with the Manta Ray Bay Resort and now boasts 8 dive boats, a state of the art dive shop and an unparalleled reputation among Pacific dive operations.     We have endured 2 major typhoons in Mitag and Sudal, 2 world health scares in the Asian Bird Flu and the Swine Flu, a major world economic crises and the loss of over ½ of our air connections yet we are still considered the “gem of Micronesian diving”.  This is a result of a lot of hard work from our staff, a location with clear water and big animals, our commitment to continuing to find new dive sites and critters as well as a lot of support from our past guests.

For all of this, I thank you and wish you happy and safe diving for 2011 and I invite you to join us for the yearlong celebration of our Silver Anniversary.

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

Offers one of the best accommodation service. It also has a uniquely designed restaurant.

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
