Manta Ray Bay is a beautiful modern resort.It has an infinity pool.The
owner is very hands on,and,is obviously interested in successfully
marketing his property.He has done a great job with staff development.The
restaurant is in an attached remodeled sailing ship. Pleasant
ambiance,pedestrian menu.There are other places to eat in the
neighborhood.Don't go to Yap for the cuisine.There is a micro brewery on
site.The rooms are beautiful.All the staff were very customer
friendly,but,the dive staff were exceptional.Great guys,very capable.
OK,the diving.We arrived and told the head diver that we were not
interested in looking for Mantas in murky channels,we explained that we
liked walls,live corals,clear waters and lots of fish.We got our wish.
Beautiful walls,a lot of corals were damaged by a typhoon a few years
ago,but,there is a lot of encouraging regrowth taking place.There are
certainly fishy reefs there.The best thing I saw was a very large free
swimming cuttlefish.He was great!Very adequate boats.We went on 2
unsuccessful Manta hunts in the murky cuts.Other divers saw them before and
after we went to these sites.I would go back to Yap,but,only as a stop on a
Central Pacific trip to other sites.
