Diving in Yap

Yap is world famous for its large population of resident manta rays. On Yap a manta dive does not mean diving hoping for a manta encounter, it means diving to see the mantas.

There’s much more to diving in Yap than just Manta Rays, however. Yap’s outer reefs abound with species of tropical reef fishes, invertebrates and corals. When coupled with the abundance of larger species like mantas, sharks, and turtles, Yap has more than 200 species of hard and soft corals that form its reefs. Yap Caverns, at the southern tip of the island offers a truly spectacular dive with an array of caverns and pinnacles populated by Lionfish and sleeping whitetip reef sharks. Large schools of Huge Bumphead Parrotfish are often seen here.

A unique feature of Yap Caverns is that the dive not restricted to advanced divers, beginners have no trouble swimming through and are able to share an experience of magical beauty otherwise reserved for more experienced divers.

The reefs on the East side of the island (windward side) feature gently sloping terraces with one of the most diverse selections of hard corals in Micronesia. The west side of the island (lee side) is composed of a series of vertical walls starting in 15 feet of water and plunging straight down hundreds of feet. The visibility on the reefs usually exceeds 100 feet and frequently is over 150 ft. Many species of marine creatures that are rare in some parts of the world are plentiful in Yap.

Dive sites such as Lionfish Wall offer a chance to experience the beauty of a pristine coral reef. One perpetual favourite of divers is the colourful clownfish. Some of them live in anemones that are over four feet across.Yap Manta Ray
