Give your kids the vacation they will never forget, even if they are not divers. For sure they will love it here. While you as parents are out diving we have the option for your kids of a tailor-made kids/child-care program.
Our kid’s program is a mix of childcare, babysitting and kids activities for when their parents are out for diving. We teach the kids about the island, Yap’s culture, history and of course have lots of fun! The programs are developed for the kids that are too young to get certified or those that are certified divers but don’t want to dive on a particular day. We can tailor-make the activities keeping the ages of the kids in mind. If there is a significant age gap between kids, we adjust the activities to their age and interest.
Find Bill’s Treasures
Treasure hunt around the resort with prizes being miniature keepsakes of Yap and pool activities such as finding certain items at the bottom of the pool.

For each day we have a different theme/program. No need to sign up for the entire week as you and/or your kids can choose what theme and how many days of activities. Each day/program actually takes about 4-5 hours. Enough for the parents to do a 2 tank dive.

Trip Advisor Review: Superlative experience for a SCUBA vacation
“… One of our dive couples had 4 children with them and the child care was absolutely superb! It made me happy to be able to see a dive couple enjoy daily diving and come back to their children who are getting a world-class education in geography and cultures! …”
