Yap Diving Guarantees

Big animals is what put Yap on the map, our resident manta rays and rain-or-shine shark dive guarantees visitors with big interactions year-round.

Manta Ray Dive, Yap Micronesia
Vertigo is our year-round dive site that is guaranteed action, every time. A dive developed by Bill and his team over two decades.

Our resident reef sharks have been stoking diver’s logs and SD cards with closer than arm’s reach encounters for 30 years.

Diving Yap guarantees a few things – big animals, Micronesia’s most vibrant culture and uncrowded reef diving.

For any diver regardless of experience, the grace of a manta ray overhead or the scene at Vertigo of a shark school surrounding divers satisfies even those of us who are spoiled with rich underwater experiences.

Micronesian Culture

Don’t dive Micronesia without exploring the local culture… and in Yap the culture is authentic and across the street. One of the best ways to get the most out of your trip to Yap is to plan your vacation to coincide with a culture festival. Yap Day happens at the peak of the manta ray mating season, making for a memorable trip above and below the surface.

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

We were from 11.08 to 18.08 at the Manta Ray Bay resort and had unforgettable days there 😍In total we made 12 dives with wonderful encounters. Highlights were, of course, the manta rays in the Goofnuw Channel and many white tip reef sharks in the Shark City 🦈 But also we saw eagle rays, turtles 🐢 and buffalo head parrotfish. The hotel is beautiful and the whole team does a great job there. The food on the ship Mnuw, as well as the home-brewed beer are excellent. Thank you again to the whole team of Manta Ray Bay Resort and Yap Divers 👏🏼We also did a one-day land tour to explore the many beautiful places of this unique island. The beach is like in paradise🏝, stone money and relics from the second world war very worth to see! You find there also culturally typical houses with different meaning and use! It would be nice if more visitors would come to this great island and appreciate the great work that is done there! Anyway, we really enjoyed it and would come back anytime 🙏🏻✌🏼read more
