Welcome to Beyond The Reef

Beyond The Reef is a very small, dedicated dive center on the Pacific island of Yap in Western Micronesia offering daily guided dive and snorkeling tours to the island's best sites, including the famous manta rays. And with only four divers on each boat, our customers enjoy a small-group style of diving that's relaxed, easy, fun and safe.

We opened for business in 1993 and our professional staff of local dive guides know just about every nook and cranny on every reef. You can be sure to get the most out of your dive vacation when you dive with us. We're casual, friendly folks that love to dive and want to show you the best of Yap!



4 Divers per boat?

That's right! We feel that when exploring one of the most spectacular dive destinations in the world, you shouldn't be on a crowded dive boat. That's why Beyond The Reef takes only four guests on each boat, complete with an underwater guide and boat skipper.

Whether taking photos or just watching the fish, diving with smaller groups simply makes for better dives. Less bubbles in front of your camera lens, less chance of getting kicked, and a whole lot more personal attention to your needs as a diver.

Size does matter... when it comes to dive groups. Dive with us and you'll see why small groups lead to better dives.
