Manta Ray Bay Resort & Yap Divers

  • Booth: 1233

Manta Ray Bay Resort, pioneers of Big Animal diving in Yap

Yap Divers was established in 1986 by Scuba Diving Hall of Fame dive pioneer, Bill Acker.

Yap offers travelers a very special experience with clear warm water diving with an exotic island culture in an uncrowded and undeveloped tropical setting. This is where the modern world mixes with ancient traditional people in an unspoiled paradise void of mass tourism.

Less than 1,000 divers a year visit Yap, offering travelers outer reef diving in small groups on exclusive dive sites in the world’s first manta ray and big animal sanctuary.
