Siren Fleet and Master Liveaboards announces new diving combination packages with Manta Ray Bay Resort in Yap. This tiny island in the Pacific is a tropical jewel, well hidden from the rest of the world. Resident mantas and a huge reef shark population give Yap its diving fame. It is a pristine paradise surrounded by clear, blue water, exquisite coral gardens, channels, and reef walls that will awe even the most seasoned diver. Seize this opportunity while you are in the region to visit this exclusive diving treasure away from the crowds. Macro lovers will be duly impressed by the variety of critters on display.

Diving in Yap is fantastic all year round; the average air temperature is 27°C (80°F) whilst the water is a very comfortable 28°C (82°F). Visibility is generally very good and can get up to a stunning 164 feet (50 m). Our partner in Yap, Manta Ray Bay Resort, was built for divers by divers and offers 35 comfortable, well-appointed a/c rooms, each with a unique marine design. You can choose between three different room types: Standard, Ocean View, and Deluxe Ocean View. The in-house 5-Star PADI & SSI Platinum dive center is fully equipped to meet all divers’ needs; nitrox, lockable camera bays, modern boats, and personal storage bays. Courses are on offer as well.
