    Fernreise-Spezis kennen das: Man steigt ins Flugzeug, steigt wieder aus, wieder ins nächste hinein, und ehe man sich versieht hat man die Datumsgrenze überschritten und steigt an irgendeinem wunderschönen Ort aus, wo man erst einmal feststellt, dass man irgendwo auf dem Weg jegliches Zeitgefühl über Bord geschmissen hat.

    Story and Photos by TIM ROCKWhat would Manta Fest be without mantas? Well, they showed up today to the glee of early visitors. And not without a bit of fanfare. We returned to Miil under sunny skies and a bit of a breeze. Low tide was just at slack and the channel visibility on the...

    There was some rain last week, ...but there is nothing wrong about that, unless your plan is to play tennis or golf. Fortunately we are diving here in Yap Island and the umbrella of the ocean's surface  protects us from the cool showers. While waiting for the Manta Rays to arrive at the cleaning station...

    Okay, we all know that Greece put the Euro into trouble, but who would have thought that our stone money makes it to the Azores in the mid-Atlantic. If you take a closer look you see that this disc is only a poor copy of our handicraft originals... At least it is located in front...

    Posted by on July 23, 2010
    Today saw the first day’s training in the kitchen on board the Mnuw, our 100 year old floating restaurant moored by the Manta Ray Bay Resort.  The reason for the training you might ask?  Well, we are in the process of totally overhauling our menu and putting into place something that is exciting, fresh, tantalizing...
