    Part Two of my Fish Eye Marine Park Observation Deck Area with pictures of the Underwater Observatory.

    The Fish Eye Marine Park is one of the famous destinations in Piti. Among the attractions in the Park area the visitor center, the marine preserve around the piti bomb hole and the underwater observatory. It is located side by side to the Piti bomb Hole and is connected to the mainland via a 1,000 foot wooden bridge (called two lovers bridge). It is owned by a Japanese Company and it features a Super Typhoon proof Underwater Observatory, located 31 feet above sea level and an Upper Deck. If you don't want to pay $ 80 for the submarine Nautilus Ride nearby that costs $ 80 per person, this is your better alternative since the entrance fees are only $ 10 for adults and $ 7 for children and you can have all the time to look around the Observation deck and the Underwater Observatory without getting cramped like in a mini submarine.

    Opens: 8:00 am to 7:00 pm everday

    according to their website:

    Fish Eye's unique facility is the first and only underwater observatory in Micronesia. Located in the center of the famous "Piti Bomb Hole", a very popular dive location, you can see this site's amazingly diverse and condensed population of marine life. The observatory structure and pier also provides a special habitat for fish and other marine life. This extra living area enhances the diversity of over 200 fish species with a hiding place similar to the nearby natural coral reefs.
    The boardwalk that leads from shore to observatory is 1,000 ft long. It crosses a portion of spectacular Piti bay. You can enjoy the gentle sea breeze and take in beautiful view. In late afternoon, you can absorb the beauty of the western sunset. Once at the observatory, the 360-degree upper deck allows you to enjoy views of the ocean, the coral reefs, outer barrier reef and Guam majestic mountains. The air-conditioned inner vestibule has a selection of marine art. You can then walk down our spiral staircase to the lower deck. You are now safely beneath the sea and can view the ocean world from 24 windows (16 rectangular and 8 round). Here, dry and comfortable, you will see Piti's amazing marine life and underwater coral gardens.
    Constructed with your safety and comfort in mind, the finest Japanese shipbuilding technology was used to make this undersea observatory. The observatory can withstand the power of a super typhoon. It is 71 ft. high, the size of a seven-story building. The top 40 feet is above sea level and bottom 31 feet below sea level. It weighs 230 tons! We know you will not find anything else like it in the Pacific.

The village is famous for the Piti Naval Guns, a destination for world war II buffs. another famous destination in piti is the Nautilus Submarine where you can get under the sea for 30 minutes in Piti Bay for $ 90 per person and the Piti Bomb Holes (they thought that the crater holes where made by world war II bombs, but was found out to be a natural reef formation), where there are shallow coral reefs where you can go scuba diving or just view the reefs and the reef fishes at the Fish Eye Marine Park or do underwater sea walk along the sea floor for 15 minutes by a company called Sea Walker, the cost is $ 40 per person.
