Visit at high tide and walk/snorkel out towards the end of the pier. If you visit at low tide, wear booties and open heeled fins. There's a drop off of about 25 feet after the reef. Tons of fish everywhere. Absolutely stunning! MDA divers is right across the street to rent tanks and gear - nice place, we did a... More

I cannot say enough amazing things about the snorkeling at Piti Bomb Holes Preserve. The water is fairly shallow until you get closer out to the observation deck where the depth really increases. On the right side a bit further out from the observation deck there is a shallow spot of bleached coral where you can rest if needed. The... More

This was one of the first places I snorkeled in Guam. Its easily accessible and a fairly safe location both for swimming and parking your car. Scuba has always been fun too. Its fun to swim or dive in front of the windows at the Fish Eye Marine Park and see the tourists faces when you are looking in at... More

THese are not real Bomb Holes, if you check around the area you too will find out that they are sink holes, caused by the reef caving in over lava bubbles, they look round like a could be bomb hole but they are not, they are good places to snorkel and view the fish though

We walked out in the shallow water under the Fish Eye Marine Park bridge until we were in deep enough water to snorkel. Schools of beautiful fish kept surrounding us waiting to be fed. We were a disappointment to them since we followed the advise we found on the Internet, don't feed them. We swam out to the underwater theater... More

I visited here recently but as a scuba diver, not as a customer for the Fish Eye Observatory. Divers need to park a little further down from the walking bridge parking lot because tour buses need to park in front of the attraction. It is quite a long walk out to the bomb hole area but catch it at high... More

Fish Eye Marine Park has become one of the best tourist attraction facility in Guam. Fishing is prohibited here, but you get get up close and observe 200 species of various tropical fish and coral while staying completely dry inside the underwater observatory.

Great place to get a large sampling of the many reef fish that encircle Guam. Reef fish are abundant here as they are fed regularly. Nice place to scuba dive both day and night.

If you love the water, snorkeling, or diving, this is the place to visit. Extremely easy to dive, depths range from 6'-38', the structure is surrounded by coral reef, there plenty of fish to see. The fish are so used to visitors that they come up to you with no problem. Bring Vienna sausages for the barracuda, she loves them!... More
