Fish eye marine park takes you under sea

The Guam Guide

Step onto our pier and out into spectacular Piti bay. Our 1000-foot long wooden boardwalk has covered rest areas where you can stop and watch the fish and enjoy the fresh ocean air. Down below tropical fish dart through the coral reefs. Blue waters in every shade of aqua highlight your jaunt out to Micronesia’s only undersea observatory. And in late afternoon, you can also marvel at the beauty of the western sunset.

Once at the observatory, the 360-degree upper deck allows you to enjoy see the ocean, the coral reefs, outer barrier reef and Guam’s 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.

Watch as our divers attract some of the 200-plus species of fish that call our location home. Brilliant yellow butterflyfish, silvery jacks, curious snapper and odd trumpetfish all pass by the windows. This is one of the most important places on the island for fish to mate, hatch, grow in the protection of the corals and also get cleaned. Undersea cleaning stations can be seen from many of the observatory windows. Here small fish preen parasites from larger fish, an important act on the reef.

After watching the fascinating reef action, you can again enjoy the upper deck and stroll back at your leisure. Just across the street is our restaurant. Marvel at the natural setting and waterfall and pile your plate high with our buffet lunch. Set next to a cliff line and melodic waterfall, the island ambiance is soothing. Come visit our special Pacific gift shop full of crafts, T-shirts, photographer Tim Rock products and great souvenirs.
