The Manta Ray Bay Resort is a dedicated dive resort, designed by divers and built for divers. It’s 35 rooms offer air conditioning, refrigerators (upon request) and in-room TV and DVD player. We have often been called “The Best Little Dive Hotel in the Pacific”.
The resort was built with divers in mind. All of the dive facilities and equipment storage are conveniently located within steps of the Hotel. Yap Divers, located on the premises, offers a full service dive shop, all levels of instruction, Mares & Oceanic rental equipment, morning and afternoon two tank dives to either the Manta sites or the reefs and walls. A number of specialty dives are also offered on a daily basis – Mandarin Fish, Macro, Shark Feed and night dives. NITROX is also available for all dives.
The Manta Ray Bistro, the Island`s finest restaurant with a great view of the lagoon, is located on the main deck of the S/V Mnuw, a turn of the century South Seas Schooner.
Hotel guests can also enjoy our very own micro brewed beer or a refreshing tropical drink in either the Nautical Weaver Bar located on the Bridge Deck of the Mnuw or in the Crow`s Nest Bar.
Manta Ray Bay`s fleet of 7 fast, modern, twin engine dive boats ranging in size from 21 to 38 feet allows us to accommodate any individual needs, from private charters to fun packed group trips.
All boats carry radio, oxygen and emergency medical kits for safety and our boat drivers know every nook and cranny of the reefs by heart.
Manta Ray Bay likes their guests to be comfortable, so in addition to being fast and safe, their boats were made to be comfortable. Smooth riding even in choppy seas, with sun protection and amply stocked with supplies like cold, fresh drinking water, hot tea and snacks. If you feel like indulging yourself, the resort chefs will set you up and make sure a delicious lunch is waiting for you on the boat between your dives.
