Silversea Expedition Cruises To COLONIA (Yap)

Silversea Luxury Cruises - Colonia

On the eastern shore of Yap proper and at the end of a 2.4 kilometer long channel leading from the open sea into Tomil Bay is Colonia, the only town and capital of Yap, one of the four states of the Federated States of Micronesia. The small town with its slightly more than 3,000 inhabitants combines modern times with traditional ways and is home to close to 25% of the state’s population. View more

The Yap Living Museum with its replicas of traditional men’s houses and the 55 meter Phinisi schooner in front of the Manta Ray Bay Resort recall the times when the famous stone money “rai” was made in Palau and finally transported to Yap on modern vessels, thereby eventually devaluating the ‘currency’. Several villages on Yap show stone money banks and even within Colonia a number of these aragonite disks can be seen. One of the villages and O’Keefe’s Island (Tarang), about 1.5 kilometers northeast of Colonia and just across from the schooner, are on the list of tentative UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Most foreign visitors though come to Colonia to dive in the world’s first manta ray sanctuary, which actually comprises Yap’s 16 main islands and atolls as well as 145 islets.
