Manta Ray is a environmental resort catering from the young to the older travellers. Situated on its own Island in the Yasawa Island chain north west of the main Island of Viti Levu. The island thrives around great reefs and water sports to go with it and for half the year is a mecca for the Migrating Manta Rays that inhabit the channels around the resort. Different styles of accomodation is avaiable from Dormitory to shared private rooms through to ensuited bures to fit everyones budget.

At Mantaray Island the coconuts are plentiful and in season, so are guavas, pineapples, mangoes and other fresh fruits. We use only the freshest ingredients and feature fresh locally caught fish and fresh seasonal tropical fruit.

All our meals are prepared by an executive chef and include a range of European, Fijian and Indian dishes. We offer a wide range of vegetarian dishes and can cater to any special dietary requirement on request.

Breakfasts include cereals, toast, fruit and pancakes. Cooked breakfasts are available for purchase from the menu.

Lunches and dinners vary between buffet and set menu.

Diving at Mantaray

Stunning coral gardens, spectacular swim throughs, amazing reef walls and over a thousand species of marine life are just some of the things you're likely to experience diving in the Yasawa's.

Mantaray Island Resort is located 70km from the mainland and is the only dive operator in the Naviti group of the Yasawa's. Over 40 dive sites are accessible within 20 minutes cruising from the resort. Having such a large variety of dives sites ensure divers are able to continue to enjoy pristine marine environments with very little or no impact from other divers.

Whether you are a complete novice , or looking to complete an instructors qualification, we'll ensure you enjoy your diving in a safe and comfortable environment.

With all the dive sites here off Mantaray Island Resort, there's plenty for every level of ability, certification and experience. Whether you've done 600 dives or have just passed your Open Water Course, there's plenty for you to choose from and it doesn’t matter if you’re an early bird, a late riser, or a night owl - we're ready for you whenever you want to hit the water! We do a single or two tank dive in the morning, an additional afternoon dive(s) if required, and night dives are available on request. All dives are guided by a local diver to navigate you through the dive site, pointing out creatures or items of interest. If you haven't dived in a while, or still feel a little inexperienced you may want to consider doing a beach dive and/or, having an Instructor with you to ease yourself back in. We can update your skills, and do a short refresher to bring you back up to date.

As many as 7,000 different fish species live on coral reefs or nearby inshore habitats, with up to maybe 300 different types inhabiting a small plot of reef. Fiji also has a couple of residents unique only to Fiji, including the Bicolour Rabbitfish, and Black Rabbitfish with gentle eyes but sharp dorsal spines it can raise if threatened. This Rabbitfish has a yellow tail and is rarely seen out of a pair.

The Yasawa group of islands has fewer crowds and fewer dive boats. This chain of ancient volcanic islands offers excellent corals, pristine reefs and good visibility, not to mention some superb topside backdrops.

With over 40 dive sites available at Mantaray Island Resort, we'll always find the perfect dive for you.

Mantaray offers daily 1 and 2 tank dives, night dives and dive classes including Introductory Dives, Advanced, Stress and Rescue and Divemaster.
