Product Description:
Palau is one of the world’s underwater wonders and Yap is both the most culturally intact isle in the region and a worthy diving and snorkeling mecca in its own right. This guide is new for 2016, with new images, more information on the outer atolls and updated dive site information. These two western Micronesian islands together offer the best diving in the Western Pacific. Both have stunning natural beauty, fabulous coral gardens and guaranteed encounters with big ocean marine life like sharks and manta rays. This guide introduces you to the most popular and sites of Palau and Yap, as well as some unique and more remote sites that are rarely visited. Although the islands are famous for their wide array of beautiful hard corals, abundance of marine life and big fish dives, there is also some great shipwreck diving in Palau. This new book has over 130 full color images and island maps. Dive-site locations are shown on maps and each site is introduced with general location, most frequently dived depths, the type of dive that can be expected, the dominant marine life to be found and logistical requirements. And it is not only about diving. There is lots to do on land in both islands and Yap, especially, is a fascinating cultural oasis, where life still goes on much as it has for centuries.

Product Description:

Take a trip through Micronesia's most spectacular destinations. New for 2019, this book has been updated with the latest info, new images and new dive sites. It takes you to the best wreck diving destination in the world: Truk Lagoon. It also has the drop-offs, passes and atolls of amazing Pohnpei and the hard coral sites of lush Kosrae.

Located in the north central Pacific, Chuuk is a state in the Federated States of Micronesia. Wreck divers call it Truk Lagoon and it is the site of the famous WWII air raid Operation Hailstone. This battle lasted three days and sunk dozens of Japanese ships in the waters of the vast inner lagoon. Today, they are "shipreefs," historic wrecks adorned in corals and full of marine life. For history lovers or reef divers, these amazing dives have the potential to overload the senses and exhaust the superlatives of every diver and snorkeler visiting them.

East of Truk are the islands of Pohnpei and Kosrae, full of beauty and mystery above the sea and featuring little dived reefs below the ocean. Pohnpei has a mysterious ancient city called Nan Madol, many waterfalls, high mountains and a huge barrier reef. Two atolls also lie offshore. Pohnpei diving is famous for mantas, sharks and beautiful corals. Kosrae is also a legendary natural wonder and it too has a mysterious set of ruins. With very little coastal development to spoil the extremely healthy hard coral reefs, it is nature at its wild best. Kosrae has natural forests and a very special mangrove dive.

This guide gives you everything you need to plan a trip to these wonderful Micronesian destinations. There are over 112 full color images and island maps. Dive locations are shown on maps and each site is described in detail. introduced with general location, most frequently dived depths, type of dive that can be expected, the dominant marine life and the logistical requirements.

The author/photographer is internationally published marine photojournalist Tim Rock, who has lived in Micronesia for three decades.

Product Description:

Sometimes called “diving’s best-kept secret” the western Pacific island of Guam has some of the most amazing diversity in the marine world. It is Micronesia’s largest island but is only 30 miles long and ten miles wide. But small things come in excellent packages as divers will find more than 400 coral species, 1000 fish species, 14 marine mammals and numerous invertebrates. This makes the island a treasure trove of undersea wonders.

Add to that World War I & II sunken ships, planes and other remnants plus deep drop-offs and amazingly clear and warm waters. Plus, on land, the island is easy to get to and well-equipped with many hotels and restaurants for any diver on most any budget.

The islands of Rota and Saipan in the Mariana Islands lie north of Guam and are also lush gems with much to see above and below the ocean.

New for 2019, this guide has it all and it written by Lonely Planet author and Guam resident and internationally published photojournalist Tim Rock.

New photos and updated descriptions accompany approximate dive positions, maps, general location, most frequently dived depths, type of dive that can be expected, the dominant marine life and logistical requirements.
