    Dive Sites

    With almost 100 miles of the barrier reef, several big channels, and lagoon sites, there is one of everything here to explore.
    Use the Site List to learn more abount a particular dive site.

    Sakura Terrace

    A series of gentle terraces with many niches, crevices, and coral outcroppings drops gradually to a coral plateau. Often used for night diving when the seas are calm. The gentle slope also helps to make it easy to maintain a safe option.

    Samakai Wall

    A vertical wall that curves in & out. Current usually less than 1/2 knot makes this an easy drift dive. This portion of the reef has a steeper wall than most of the sites on the east side of the Island.

    Slow & Easy

    The inshore reef gradually drops down from the surface to the sandy bottom. Many niches, crevices, and outcropping provinces provide shelters for many critters and nocturnal species, making an ideal spot for night dives.

    Spanish Wall

    Usually done as a slow drift dive past the slopes & walls. You’ll find steeply descending slopes high- lighted by a series of vertical walls from 60 – 85 ft. (18 – 25 M). Each of the walls is roughly 50 meters long.

    Stammtisch Manta Ray Dive

    Stammtisch is Yap’s signature dive to interact with Manta Rays cleaning. It is a shallow, static dive spent at the cleaning station for up-close interaction. Mantas typically pass just overhead of divers and slowly move around while the cleaner fish go to work.


    A vertical wall that curves in & out. The current usually less than 1/2 knot makes this an easy drift dive. This portion of the reef has a steeper wall than most of the sites on the east side of the Island. Sometimes done as a night dive if the seas are particularly calm.

    Sunrise Reef

    This site marks the northern boundary of regularly dived areas. A very gradual slope provides a large area of prime habitat for coral growth. The gradual dropoff provides hundreds of acres of habitat at 40 – 70 ft. (12 – 20 M) for hard corals to flourish on.

    Telegraph Reef

    A great night dive for exploring among the rocky shelves and bommies before coming to the channel entrances where there is active fishlife. Remnants of a subsea telegraph cable can be seen in places along the top edge of the reef.

    Tradewind Mini-Wall

    Tradewind Mini-Wall is a series of vertical mini-walls from 20 – 50 ft. (6 – 15 M). Below 50 ft. (15 M) there’s a short plateau before a gentle sandy slope starts dropping off towards the ocean bottom.

    Valley of the Rays – Manta Dive

    Coral outcroppings rising from the sandy bottom of the channel serve as Manta cleaning stations. The Mantas hover over the coral heads & allow cleaner wrasse and other species of small reef fish to pick off parasites.


    Vertigo is home to our school of grey and blacktip reef sharks. The dive is located on the West coast of the island south of M’il Channel, a 25 to a 35-minute boat ride. One of the best shark dive sites in Micronesia.

    Yap Caverns

    The southernmost tip of the island offers divers the most interesting topography. Divers swim through the reef with life big and small. Yap Caverns amphitheater is one of the best environments for macro subjects at every depth.
