Vertigo is on the West Side of Yap Island. A wide shallow barrier reef drops at the breakers to about 5 meters and from there on it slops to about 15 meters to finally break into a wall. The reef has deep cuts, similar to rivers. The structures are stone corals. Vertigo is famous for it's sharks. Dominant are grey reef sharks and black-tip reef sharks. Occasionally we have hammerheads, sivertips and we had a tiger. Current on full/new moon, otherwise very calm. Extremely clear visibility 30+ meters. Very nice and exciting dive site for sharks. We offer shark feedings on the site and have up to 35 sharks at the time there - find more on our web site website
