Product Description

Synopsis

Many experienced divers consider Micronesia with its crystal clear water, rich complement of marine life and steady parade of fish, to be the single best all-round diving area in the world. Covering Guam, Saipan and Tinian, Palau, Yap, Chuuk (Truk), Pohnpei, Kosrae and the Marshall Islands, this guide includes accurately rendered marine charts for every important area, data on season tide and current conditions as well as a background section on marine life and reef ecology. The author is a dive and travel journalist, who has logged hundreds of dives in Micronesia.

Inside This Book (Learn More)
First Sentence
ALTHOUGH ALMOST EVERY FLIGHT into Micronesia stops first on Guam, most divers never even leave Won Pat airport, immediately transferring to an "Air Mike" (the universal nickname for Micronesia's airline) flight to their final destination. Read the first page

Excellent Book 28 July 2005
By A. Althani - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
One of the most informative books about diving in the Pacific , next to Tim Rocks lonely planet guides for diving and snorkelling in Micronesia this is the best , only this one accomodates all the islands in one book meanwhile lonely planet is done over three books .

I definately recommend it !

Best dive guide for Micronesia 9 Mar 2007
By K. E. Quill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I went back and bought 2 more for my travel companions! We just came back from Truk & Yap and I never saw my book, it was traveling around our group so much! We are planning to return to Palau, so I bought extra copies as self defense! The best dive guide I have found to the islands.

Great info, Maps, & Pics 17 Sep 2005
By J. McGee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Wasn't sure what to expect when ordering, but am very happy with the purchase. The maps are great! I have lived in Guam & find that the info in the book is very helpful. I'm still learning my way around the dive world here & now know where some of these places are that people are talking about. It has also helped plan our next dive trip to other islands. Great info on Palau, Chuuk, & Yap. So much to see & so little time!!!

Needs to Do More Research 2 Jan 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
While Mr. Leonard may have a good handle on the diving in and around Guam, he hasn't taken the time to research all of his findings. In his book he stated that the local military "rarely contributes to the local economy". Absurd. As a member of that military i know for a FACT that we are a vital part of the economy on Guam. We shop in off base, we LIVE off base, we eat off base, we PLAY off base. IF you can make a statement that blatantly incorrect, then what else in the book was "inaccurate"?

the best dive book ever 31 July 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I don't know that I've ever read a better dive book or travel guide. The author covers every minute detail, and somehow, it still reads well--a fascinating and well-treated subject. David Leonard shows great wit and a solid knowledge of his subject.
The photographs are amazing, too.
