About Manta Ray Bay Resort
Manta Ray Bay Resort is a premiere dedicated dive resort on the island of Yap in Micronesia, designed by divers and built for divers. All of the dive facilities are conveniently located within steps of the Hotel. We also offer world-class fishing, wildlife, and nature kayaking, and a full range of island tours specifically designed to showcase Yap’s unique indigenous culture.
Yap is best known for its resident manta ray presence, clear blue water diving, and a strong reef shark population. With almost 100 miles of the barrier reef, several big channels and lagoon sites, there is one of everything here to explore - miles of outer reef wall diving, deep and shallow channels to drift as well as inner lagoon macro and night diving.
Highlights of Yap Diving are the mantas, daily year-round reef shark diving with three kinds of interactions, nightly mating mandarin fish as well as rich coral walls and caverns. Manta Ray Bay Resort offers:
The most convenient land-based dive options in Yap
Modern, quiet, comfortable, covered dive boats
Personal Gear Storage Area
Camera Stations with secure storage
Top-of-the-line rental gear

The Manta Ray Bay Resort was built FOR divers, BY divers. Our harborside dive center, Yap Divers, has everything you'd expect from a PADI 5-star facility, and so much more. Yap Divers is a full-service facility with modern boats, rental gear, dive shop, camera bays, gear rinse, and storage. Yap Divers dives all sites around Yap on a daily basis with up to 5 dives per day offered to our guests.
Plus, at the end of an unforgettable day of diving, it's nice to know that there are only a few dozen steps or so from the quay to your room or the bar aboard the S/V Mnuw, our 100 year old South Seas Schooner.
