7th Annual Manta Fest Photo Festival
Yap, Micronesia
August 23th - September 7th, 2014

Come learn from the top underwater shooters in the world, experience great diving and have lots of fun.

The intention is for Manta Fest to evolve into an island-wide celebration involving all of Yap's hotels and dive shops. But for now, The Manta Ray Bay Resort is taking the lead in trying to establish this fun educational program where everyone is a winner.

Photo & Video Pros • Seminars • Photo Contest • Daily Presentations

Professional digital still photographers and videographers from all over the world will be here to teach our guests and help with any of their photographic and video needs. There will be nightly presentations on the big outdoor screen on Mnuw as well as individual classroom seminars in the afternoons. The pros will also compile a presentation from our guests efforts to show on the last day with awards given to those participating.
