11th Annual Manta Fest Photo Festival August 25th – September 9th


Manta Ray Bay Resort
Built by divers, for divers. The Manta Ray Bay Resort was designed for hospitality luxury and dive convenience and is the only dedicated dive facility on the island. Each of the 35 individually themed rooms are just a few steps from the dive shop, boat dock, and the operation’s unique restaurant & bar. Standard double-occupancy and ocean view rooms are available as well as deluxe ocean views suites with private plunge pools or a rooftop jacuzzi.

All rooms are equipped with air conditioning and a ceiling fan, DVD player, an International Direct Dialing phone, in-room internet connection, optional refrigerator, and a large private bathroom with built-in hair dryer. Five-star service meets island traditions at the Taro Leaf in-house spa and shopping boutique.

Yap Divers
Yap Divers is the original and most knowledgeable dive operation in Yap, established in 1986 by Scuba Diving Hall of Fame dive pioneer, Bill Acker. Yap Divers is an SSI Platinum Dive Center, PADI Gold Palm Resort and Mares Premium DC offering all levels of dive training, Nitrox and rental gear. Yap Divers is equipped with a fleet of 6 to 8 pax custom dive boats with an 18 pax boat for large groups.

Family diving packages are available year-round with activities for diving and non-diving children. Every June Yap Divers hosts Kids Sea Camp by Family Divers with a complete itinerary of diving, activities, tours and entertainment for all ages. All you have to do is dive – Yap Divers offers VIP gear services where you don’t have to touch your dive equipment all week. Gear is stored in large dry lockers and will be loaded on the boat for you each morning – after each dive day your gear is unloaded, rinsed and put back in your personal equipment locker by our dive staff. Clean towels, fresh baked snacks as well as hot and cold beverages are served after each dive.
