Manta Ray Bay Resort

Manta Ray Bay Resort

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”.

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.

Scuba Highlights

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.


Yap refers to an island group located in the Caroline Islands of the western Pacific Ocean, a part of Yap State. The name “Yap” in recent years has come to also refer to the state within the Federated States of Micronesia, inclusive of the Yap Main Islands and its various outer islands.

Manta Ray Bay Resort & Yap Divers is a small, family-owned, luxury hotel on pristine island of Yap in the western Pacific Ocean – operating since 1986.
