Yap Divers





Award winning Yap Divers is Yap’s first PADI 5-Star Resort and an SSI Platinum Dive Center.

With Yap Divers, you can be assured of clean, pure air, safe diving, and a full range of instruction available from Open Water through Divemaster. We also offer a number of specialty dive certifications for those who want to expand their formal dive training, and we are home to the only place in the world where you can do the PADI certified Manta Ray Awareness Course. This makes for a perfect combination to enhance the Yap Island vacation.

The dive traveler is offered all that he or she could ever ask for in terms of dive experiences with regularly scheduled drift dives, wall dives, cavern dives and night dives, as well as our specialty – Giant Manta dives.

NITROX – more time, More safety and MOre comfort

Yap Divers also offers NITROX on Yap as well as PADI Enriched Air Specialty or TDI Nitrox Certification Classes. For Yap, NITROX is perfect for both extending bottom time on the manta dives as well as the added safety and comfort associated with NITROX diving.

Yap – Diving’s best Kept Secret

Although we have a host of charted dive sites and a program to discover more dive destinations, the fun part is that more than 50% of Yap’s reefs remain unexplored. It is often said that Yap is “World Class Diving’s Best Kept Secret”.

Uncrowded outer-reef Diving

Diving Yap’s outer reef is a quiet, personal experience. With over 30 known dive sites and less than 100 hotel rooms on the entire Island, you are almost certain to be the only divers at your dive site. It is truly an awesome, personal experience.

We know Yap’s Diving

Very few people know – or will ever know – Yap’s reefs like the staff at Yap Divers. Most dive sites in Yap were discovered and named by us. Mi’l Channel, one of our premier dive destinations, is more than the “home of the Mantas” – this site has been classified by Skin Diver Magazine as one of the top dive destinations in the world.

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.

The staff couldn't be more friendly and accommodating. Food is good, (worth upgrading to include all meals). Diving is good too.

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.

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.
