Yap’s underwater celebrities, the resident manta rays, and reef sharks, are between 15ft/5m and 75ft/23m of depth. Freedivers can experience Yap with our same valet service and comfort amenities.
The opportunities for freediving Yap include clear water with guaranteed big animal encounters, especially sharks, and including manta rays with excellent cavern environments.
The southern tip of Yap offers the best topography or “structure” to free dive on. There are shallow swim-throughs, chimneys, and tunnels through the reef and out to the blue… all under 80ft/24m of depth.
Fish school on a ridge in Yap’s biggest channel from the surface down to 70ft/22m with nice hard coral and reef life in very shallow water.
The calmest months as far as least expected winds are the North American summer season starting in May and ending October and are excellent for planning freediving trips to Yap.More Information
