Zegrahm Expeditions Co-founder Jack Grove Leads Another Yap Adventure

Jack Grove recently brought a group of 7 divers and 9 snorkelers to Yap.  This was Jack’s 12th time in Yap and he has already mentioned that on his next trip, he will schedule additional time in Yap before, or after, the Zegrahm Expeditions’ visit.  For those of you unfamiliar with whom and what Zegrahms is, I suggest you visit their website at:  www.zeco.com.

Of the 16 intrepid individuals, 10 of them joined our Planet Blue Kayak Tour guides for a mangrove paddle and all of them went on the Kaday Village Cultural Tour.  We also arranged a beach lunch for the group following their diving and snorkeling on Monday.  This was well received and something that we are happy to arrange for groups and individuals alike.  Just ask and we will be happy to oblige.

We eavesdropped on Jack one morning while he was talking to his group and overheard him saying “I barely sleep at night because my adrenaline is so pumped up knowing how my next diving day in Yap will be.”  Jack and I have been friends since the day, over 25 years ago, when both of us were quite a bit younger, and Jack arrived with the Lindblad Explorer cruise ship and I was in charge of lightering the guests to the shore and putting on a cultural tour for them.   There aren’t many people in this industry that I respect more and I look forward to his return.

Despite signs saying “Keep Off Waterfall”, we gladly gave permission for this group photo

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
