Diving in Guam is the ultimate adventure. With healthy coral reefs and wrecks left untouched, Guam’s dive sites are a pristine playground.
Guam is probably most famous for its wrecks. Beneath the ocean's surface, one of the most significant dive sites in Micronesia is the German Cormoran from WWI and the Japanese Tokai Maru from WWII. Both wrecks sank now lie at 100 feet (30 meters).
While the shipwrecks may be of interest, Guam’s premier dive site is the Blue Hole. With crystal clear visibility, this dive starts at 60 feet (18 meters) and progresses to the cavern entrance at 115 feet (35 meters). The hole then drops to an unreachable 230 feet (70 meters). Look out for large pelagic species including reef sharks and tuna on your dive into the depths.
Guam is a tropical paradise located just above the equator in the North Pacific Ocean. The climate is tropical here, making diving possible year-round with water temperatures a constant 82-86°F (28°C). A 1mm wetsuit or just a rash guard will be suffice here.
Most sites can be accessed from shore and beach entrys are common when diving in Guam. If you are looking for an unforgettable diving holiday filled with magnificent and uncrowded dive sites, Guam is a real treasure waiting to be explored.

Guam is the largest island in Micronesia. Won Pat Guam International Airport (GUM) welcomes flights from Hawaii, Australia, Micronesia, much of Eastern Asia and Europe. Occasionally, cruise ships also arrive at the island during trans-Pacific cruises.
Once on the island, it is possible to get around by car, bus or your own two feet.
