Cuttlefish on Yap

Micronesia is a loose, geographic term used to describe several Pacific Ocean island groups that stretch in a chain from Asia to Hawaii.

For divers, the three most visited destinations are the Republic of Palau and, in the Federated States of Micronesia, Yap and Truk – more properly know as Chuuk. Combined, these three islands provide the most varied diving holiday you could ever wish for with reefs, wrecks and plenty of big animal encounters.
