Marianas Trekking is the pioneer of adventure on Saipan. When we started 15 years ago the idea was simple. Create adventures worthy of your very best friend. It's what drives us. Every day. We believe in small groups, strong guides, great equipment, and epic photography. Which adventure is best? It's hard to say... Grotto Snorkeling with us is pretty terrific, our Downhill Mountain Bike Adventure has been featured in the New York Times, Hiking to Forbidden Island is our signature adventure and is definitely a can't miss, and for pure fun, without a doubt it's Off Road ATV and Buggy Riding. If you give us one of your vacation days, we will do all we can to make sure it is more than memorable.

Incredibly fun and breathtaking sights above and below water. Beautiful hike from the top of a mountain down to a secret coral cave, then snorkeling, and back up. Our guides Ryan and Johnny were great company. Johnny made a memorable DVD for us afterward, which we watched while munching popcorn back at the office (and purchased). If you want an... More

Overall a pleasant enough half day with a friendly helpful guide. The trek is downhill to the beach and then back up. Not really challenging; sports shoes were fine but perhaps not flip flops! The rocky parts might worry ladies concerned with their hands, so gloves might be an idea. The snorkelling was pleasant with plenty of fish, ideal for... More

By visiting a childhood friend, who had married a local native, I managed to visit an island in the western Pacific which was, and probably still is a great get-away. It is a 3-hour plane ride from Narita International in Japan. The island is a fair-sized one, and I am sure I did n't see all the beaches, but I... More

I enjoyed Saipan, and I believe that Mariana Trekking did a lot for it. Marianas Trekking has a very good facility and they gave me 3 great days: One day the Grotto snorkell and then the bicycle, other day the Forbidden Island and other day the Buggy trip. As the first trip was so good then I took the other... More

Because I live on Saipan, I wanted to take my Tokyo friend on the tour because it showcases not only the beauty of the northern jungles of Saipan but the adventure of touring on a buggy. Jazz and Risa were our hospitable tour guides and there were two other couples (tourists) on the same tour. These couples rode together, one... More

My wife and I visited Saipan late July 2012, you only have to take the tour of the north as there's not much to see in the south of Saipan. I wasn't to impressed with the tour, however, it was okay as the blue lagoon snorkelling experience was one of the highlights of the tour. The other locations we visited... More
