Federated States of Micronesia Things to Do

  • Scuba diving

    Scuba diving in Truuk is pretty amazing. The liveaboards (Truk Odyssey and Agressor) make it easier to get the most diving out of your vacation. We did the Odyssey and were able to dive about 25 ships in a 7 day period. The food is fair (but plentiful) and the crew provided great information about the ship and good dive briefings.

  • Outer island Sapwuafik, Pohnpei

    It is a little over 100 miles by boat to the Sapwuafik Atoll. Sapwuafik has a population of approximately 700 folks with about half under 16 so lots and lots of kids The people of Sapwuafik like most of the outer Islands live a very simple peaceful life based on the sea and local foods such as giant swamp taro, bananas, and breadfruit. Sapwuafik...

  • Nan Madol "upon a stone altar."

    The most impressive archaeological spot in this part of the pacific ocean is the ancient sites on Pohnpei of Nan Madol.

The place is built on about 100 little Islets so it really is canal based like Venice.Video of...

  • Learn about the Island culture in Chuuk

    A very good place to start is at the College of Micronesia at the Chuuk campus in the state capital of Weno Chuuk. They have classes in traditional culture like building the outriggers, growing swamp Taro and sailing.

  • chuuk outer island Mortlock islands

    The Mortlock islands run across a large strech of the pacific and are about 200 miles (300km) south and east from the Chuuk Lagoon.

  • Learn About the Island Culture in Yap

    Yap is such an amazing culture the first time I was in Yap the local legislature was debating preventing Yapese women from wearing tradition western cloths and from covering their breast. The State of Yap is the Western most (or is it eastern most maybe frankcanfly can help me sort that out) anyway it is the closest to Asia of the States in the new...

  • Diving with Manta Rays

    Sit down on your favourite rock in the channel and wait for the Manta's coming. It's an unbelievable experience!There are just a few dive bases on the island, most of them belongs to hotels. DIving is expensive, a two dives trip is around 120.-$US including a sandwich and tea....But it is a must!

  • Diving

    The diving in Yap was some of the best I have done. Having dove in places such as The Red Sea, Belize, Cozumal I can say that Yap rates right up there with the best of them. Most dives were with 4 people or less and with a small boat we were able to go to places nor frequented by many divers. Great variety of fish,sharks, mantas and dolphin. I dove...
