    Accepting the lemons (for now) – Bill’s Update #8

    Posted by gm@mantaray.com on November 2, 2020
    Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining and boat trips with my grandkids is something I’ve been looking forward to for many years. Having the “luxury” to pick any day of the week instead of being on the boat with our divers for a few days every week, kind of “bothers” me though. At the...

    Lucky 13 – Bill’s Update #7

    Posted by gm@mantaray.com on September 25, 2020
    Among all the – almost depressing – news from around the world there’s also some good news that reaches our shores. We’re very proud to have been voted in the top 25 of resorts for the (South) Pacific region which included Australia and New Zealand. Knowing that there are more that 20,000 resorts/hotels in this...

    Prophetic Words – Bill’s Update #6

    Posted by gm@mantaray.com on July 24, 2020
    I told my staff back in February when customers were asking about Summer travel plans in view of COVID-19, “If we’re still in a lockdown this Summer, the world has a serious problem”. Everyone likes it when their words became reality, but man I wish I were wrong when I said those words! I am...

    We miss you – Bill’s Update #5

    Posted by gm@mantaray.com on June 24, 2020
      As many of you know, deep sea fishing is, after diving, my favorite hobby and last Saturday together with my son-in-law Francis, our former maintenance manager Teolu and William, one of our boat captains, we tried our luck. Where basically every dive you do on Yap guarantees you to see beautiful marine life, fishing...

    Posted by gm@mantaray.com on May 24, 2020
    While sitting here on my porch with a nice cup of coffee, watching the sunrise over the Pacific Ocean and trying to decide what to write to all of you very special people, it dawned on me just how lucky we are here in Yap to have such good Internet connections to the world.  Without...

    Getting used to the new – hopefully temporary – normal – Bill’s Update #3

    Posted by gm@mantaray.com on April 25, 2020
    The situation here at Manta Ray Bay Resort & Yap Divers is strange. After more than 33 years in business there are no divers to dive and talk with. Most of the staff are at home and no happy hour sessions are taking place on the Mnuw.  Instead of a hectic, always changing schedule, I...

    Sitting Out the Corona Crisis on Yap – Bill’s Update

    Posted by gm@mantaray.com on March 22, 2020
    “What a difference a day makes”………….Most of us know Dinah Washington’s hit from the 50’s, but for the Manta Ray Bay Family, that day was definitely January 31 of this year. While travelling back with Patricia from a very successful BOOT show in Germany, the news reached us that the FSM – to my knowledge...

    Posted by gm@mantaray.com on February 10, 2020
    My favorite Yap Dive Site, by Bill Acker. With over 17,000 dives in Yap and having found & named most of our dive sites, it’s really hard for me to single just one out. There are any number of wonderful dives here in Yap and on any given day, all can be spectacular with unbelievable...
