Guam has some of the best dive sites in the world since there has been minimal tourist impact compared to other better known dive locations. Piti Bomb Holes has been built up as a tourist attraction allowing tourists to descend into an observatory where they can take in the beauty that has grown in a sinkhole. (The name "Bomb Holes" is a misnomer.) Divers may dive around this attraction and feed shoals of fish for the amusement of the tourists inside the subaquatic observatory as much as for the divers' own amusement.
While many of the dive sites can be reached by land, some of these entry points require a long walk over coral or a long surface swim. Also, because so much of the island is controlled by U.S. military bases, many of the dive sites are accessed by land through the military bases.
Guam is blessed with crystal blue waters, magnificent reefs, wall and wrecks. The underwater world surrounding Guam is magnificent and the variety of diving is on par with anything on earth. Along with an average ocean temperature of 80 degrees, it makes diving pleasant year round.
Additionally there’s spectacular wall diving and unparalleled wreck diving: How about a German, Japanese, and American ship in the same harbor, plus more ships, planes, and a wide assortment of barges, bombs, and other artifacts from WWII.
We don't know of any other place in the world where you can touch two shipwrecks that went down in two different wars on the same dive!: the Cormoran from WWI and Takai Maru from WWII touch each other bow-stern at 100 ft.
The Blue Hole is Guam’s signature wall dive with an amazing cavern starting at 65 ft., which enters into an archway at 130 ft.
Guam is the largest (543 sq. kilometres) and most populated island, situated at the southern end of the Marianas chain. Just south of the island is the Marianas Trench, the world’s greatest ocean depth - 10,925 meters.
Hagatna, is a busy capital city and the hub of Guam's business and government activity.
