Comments 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!
