We were afraid that with the typhoon in April that the diving would not be
up to the standards we were anticipating.  The diving was outstanding!  We
saw so many mantas and large fish on every dive.  The small creatures were
everywhere!  The visibility was wonderful and and staff at the dive shop
and hotel were outstanding.  The people of Yap are definitely some of the
friendliest and hardest working people we have ever met.  This is a
definite YES for diving and seeing as many as 18 huge mantas come out of
the beautiful blue waters straigh towards you on one dive is something
every diver needs to experience.  We saw as many as 20 sharks on many of
the dives as well as lobster, small fish, corals, and turtles.  This is a
great dive trip!
