Micronesia Diving Destinations

The term Micronesia is a collective name given to thousands of tropical islands spread through the western reaches of the Pacific. There are eight island groups, states or territories that comprise the Micronesia and each has unique appeal to visitors. These tropical islands are rich in flora and fauna, culture and history and of course is the home of world class diving.

We feature the islands of Palau, Chuuk and Yap. Here you can find peace and adventure in equal quantities. They are areas of outstanding beauty with lush green islands surrounded by clear calm lagoons and coral reefs running into the deep blue seas. Each of the resorts and dive centres we feature is a multi-award winning business and you are guaranteed comfort and great service.

The underwater world is truly spectacular and is on the must visit list of most divers. Palau is famous for itís steep walls, great visibility, pristine reefs and huge amounts of marine life. At Chuuk (Truk) virtually a whole Japanese fleet lies within the shallow lagoon making this perhaps the best place in the world for easy access wreck diving. The outer reefs remain largely unexplored and provide many exciting encounters. Yap is best known for the opportunity to see Manta Rays all year round but there is also a dazzling array of species on the water from small macro-life to large pelagics including other rays, sharks, tuna, marlin etc.

The warm waters really do make this the ultimate paradise for divers and the relatively low tourist numbers only add to the appeal. However, itís not all about diving and the islands are a fascinating destination for eco-tourism, naturalists and history buffs. All of our resorts provide a range of professionally guided tours including jungle trekking, kayaking, World War 2 history, island hopping in remote locations and low impact local culture interaction.

Traditionally these islands have been costly and complicated to access, particularly for European and Asian visitors. This has now changed as the opening of new routes and regular services from The Philippines means that Micronesian islands are now just a relatively short flight from Manila or Cebu. The introduction of low fares now makes The Philippines the hub for Micronesia and means that travel to Palau, Chuuk and Yap is easier than ever before.

In fact a combined Philippines and Micronesia diving holiday is the perfect way to begin discovery in this part of the world. Please have a look at our packages or contact us directly to help you plan your visit to the Pacific region.
