Micronesia

Overview

Micronesia consists of more than 2,000 islands which are situated north of Papua New Guinea and to the west of Hawaii.

The local villages in the eight main island groups each have their own unique culture, language, history and attractions. Except for the larger towns Guam and Koror, they have maintained the traditional and cultural way of life, with few modern-day facilities.

Many of the islands and atolls that you see today are the peaks of massive underwater mountains or the rims of volcanoes, long since sunk, breaking the surface to form tropical lagoons.

Experience the warmth of Micronesia.

Diving

Overview

The remoteness and isolation of the islands of Micronesia make this area a diver’s and snorkellers paradise. The fabulous fish life, colourful corals and the many beautiful wrecks of World War II lend themselves to Micronesia being one of the world’s leading dive destinations.

Palau is known for its thrilling drift diving along channels, walls and coral gardens. You are bound to see schooling pelagics and various varieties of sharks frequenting the WWII wrecks in the area. Your trip to Palau would not be complete without a snorkelling trip to Jellyfish Lake and kayaking among the Rock Islands.

Chuuk, commonly known as Truk, is suitable for both novice and experienced divers. With over 42 WWII wrecks to choose from, you certainly won’t be disappointed.

Kosrae is excellent for novice divers and underwater photographers owing to the crystal clear waters and the incredible coral reefs if the area.

A barrier reef surrounds Pohnpei with many passages that exit the lagoon into the open sea and, therefore, offer uncrowded current & channel dives, walls and drop-offs.

Yap allows you to enjoy reef diving, caverns and swim-throughs in an uncrowded environment while watching the manta rays that grace these waters all year round.
