and Yap Divers
for Manta Ray encounters that divers dream about. The culture
is lost in time as they still use stone as their traditional form
of money. A stop in Yap is a must if traveling to Micronesia.
Yap is in the Western Caroline Island chain and is located between
Palau, Guam and the Philippines. Cooled by gentle trade winds,
Yap’s year-round temperatures average in the mid 80oF (26oC)
and has a water temperature of 81oF (27oC).
Yap is a diver’s paradise and the scuba diving in Yap is
world class. While the mantas are the attraction that puts Yap
on the map as a prime Micronesian scuba location, the pristine
reefs and walls are the icing on the cake. There are over 90 miles
of coral reefs and walls to tempt you. Yap’s reefs are home
to over 150 species of corals and over 750 species of vibrant
colored tropical fish.
