Traditional sailing canoes in Micronesia uses single outrigger. The sail always receives wind on opposite side of outrigger. The tour uses a smaller canoe which is basically for inside the reef transportation, the maneuvering method is much the same as the one for large trans-ocean canoes.



Most of the shorelines of Yap are covered by thick mangrove forests. Touring through calm and shallow channels in mangroves by boat, overlooking traditional men's houses on shoreline, is something you cannot miss.



Traditional architecture of Yap does not use nails. Thick lumbers are tied together only with thin coconut fiber ropes. To build a new one, all men in the community are required to be involved in the work. In this way, the skills and techniques will be passed down to the younger generation.



There are several dance forms in traditional dances in Yap. The dance of this picture is one of such forms called gamel' which was originally from the eastern islands.



One of the biggest excitements is to dive in the channels with giant mantas hovering just above you. Diving in the outer reef may mesmerize you with the warm soothing water, clear visibility, and generally mild currents. You may want to identify strange creatures, big or small, take photographs, or just meditate in the underwater paradise!



Traditional dance practice starts in early age as long as the child is willing to learn. In this way the culture and its spirits will be passed down generations.



Water activities including scuba diving in Yap island are highly influenced by the tidal movement due to the island's geographical features. If you plan to come dive in Yap, it will be nicer to consider your schedule according to the moon phases. To assist your planning, we made the tide calendar with predictions.



Sitting dance is one of the most fundamental and traditional dance forms in Yap. Following the chant which tells stories, it is expressed by only with slow movement of eyes, necks, upper torso, hands and arms.
