 This was a return trip so we dove many more sites than just the mantas.
Yap is underutilized as far as the other awsome diving available. Some of
the coral gardens are so cool...not too many fish, but the coral is in
perfect condition. One of the sites has many mandarin fish in 15 to 30 feet
of water.
 Bill Aker does a great job with his operation. He has a four star chef and
the moored ship is a super addition. There are currents on the open water
dives, but the dives are done as drift dives,
 The mantas are wonderful, vis wasn't great however.
