Goofnuw Channel is a salt water dive site, located in Yap, Micronesia, Federated States Of. This dive site has an average rating of 4.00 out of 5 from 1 scuba divers.

From SportDiver Planet’s 50 Greatest Dives, #27, Ringed with magnificent hard corals, Goofnuw is a channel that connects the mangroves to the sea. Catch it on the incoming tide when clear waters carry divers past stingrays, Napoleon wrasse and fusiliers, as well as whitetip and reef sharks. This list of residents would make any diver happy, but the main attraction tends to overshadow everything else: manta rays. There is no mistaking these majestic animals as they glide into one of three large cleaning stations in the channel. On the best days, divers are treated to multiple mantas lining up like cars on a freeway awaiting their turn to be groomed by wrasse and butterflyfish. — Mike Veitch
