Travel to Pohnpei

Pohnpei is the name of one of the four states in the Federated States of Micronesia  (FSM), situated among the Senyavin Islands which are part of the larger Caroline Islands group. Pohnpei Island is the largest, highest, most populous, and most developed single island in the FSM. The islanders of Pohnpei have a reputation as being the most welcoming of outsiders among residents of the island group. The island also contains a wealth of biodiversity.

Surrounded largely by rich mangrove forests, Pohnpei's jagged coastline is intersected by numerous channels that carry nutrients into the vast lagoon. These nutrients attract marine life and make Pohnpei one of the most varied marine environments in Micronesia.

Trips are also made to two neighboring atools, Ant and Pakin. They exude the aura of paradise unspoiled. Here, the true meaning of pristine diving comes to the fore.
