Manta Ray Bay Resort - Manta Mania 2016
Citizen Science Eco-Tourism Week - February 7-14, 2016
Get involved…! Join a manta ray conservation party on an upgraded luxury vacation package at Manta Ray Bay Resort. Yap is one of several research sites with Manta Trust - for one week leading manta ray and shark scientists will host a "hands-on" citizen science field research symposium and media event.
“This is an rare opportunity for divers to dive with manta rays together with the scientists who study them. You’ll get to see the type of equipment we use, how we gather information and how its processed. We planned this event to take place during manta mating season, the most active time of year where close interaction with multiple animals is nearly assured - we are hoping to get a lot of valuable information. During the day you’ll dive with mantas and over the pristine reefs surrounding Yap, in the afternoon you’ll attend workshops to learn about megafauna, and in the evening you get to see pictures of these amazing animals. Not only will you be learning about mantas but also their very close relatives the mobula, sharks and other marine mammals. We hope everyone will come away from this experience awed by the ocean and its creatures with a deep appreciation for Yap and love for it’s people and culture."
Join Julie Hartup, Guy Stevens, Vanessa Jaiteh, and Steve Lindfield for a week of diving, symposiums, and hand-on experiences with mantas and sharks around Yap.
Packages are $1699 for standard room, $1799 for ocean view and $1999 for deluxe ocean view. Rates are per person double diver occupancy. Contact us for complete details.

We are now booking the Tiger Blue Liveaboard in Indonesia
Tiger Blue is a traditional 34m timber phinisi yacht, which sails around the stunning islands of Eastern Indonesia. The boat has five en-suite cabins, sleeping up to 12 adults, leaving you with plenty of room to relax and take in the incredible scenery. She can be chartered privately or on an individual cabin basis with three core itineraries throughout the year, which can easily be tailored to suit your requirements. Perfect for a family adventure, a once in a lifetime trip among friends or a diving and fishing holiday, Tiger Blue offers an ideal opportunity to spend time together.
A journey on board is full of unforgettable moments, be it finding dragons on the Komodo islands, searching for birds of paradise in West Papua or snorkelling with huge manta rays then kayaking over coral gardens in Raja Ampat. Follow in the footsteps of Sir Francis Drake and discover the spice route of olden days in the Banda islands, where nations fought tooth and nail to secure this exotic and lucrative trade. Embark with a sense of adventure. Switch off your phone and reconnect with each other and with nature.
