Guam is not only just a great dive destination of value but it is also a stratigic hub to get to some of the worlds top dives within only a few hours. I would recommend to anyone who is destined for Guam to bring their dive/snorkle gear.
Continental Airlines is the major carrier who flys in and out of Guam daily. There are other airlines such as Japan Airlines, Philippine Airlines, and Korean Airlines thathave multiple daily arrivals and departures.
It's a very long flight from the mainland US. Be prepared to battle jetlag the first couple of days.
Great diving both from a boat or from the beach. The vis at most dive locations is 100+ ft.
The Cormorant from WWI and the Tokai Maru from WWII rest close enough to one another that they both can be seen on one dive.
Not much of a big fish destination. You will see Mantas from time to time. You will see plenty of turtles.
Still very alive. Global warming and other pollutants did take a toll on some of the coral causing bleaching. All in all still bright and colorful and full with fish
All year around. The water temp remains a steady 81 degrees. From July till December is the rainy season so expect to get wet topside too. The other half of the year is the dry season but the winds tend to pick up a bit.
Dive gear, camera, sun block, and an appitite for delicious local foods.
