Do a Sanctuary Dive in Micronesia

Micronesia/Marshall Islands

Depth: 30m (99ft)
Visibility: 20m (66ft)

As of 2011, the Marshall Islands were established as the largest shark sanctuary in the world spanning at nearly 2,000,000 square kilometers (almost 800,000 square miles); that’s about 4 times the size of California. Located approximately 3 ½ hours from Micronesia, the Marshall Islands are a Pacific paradise.

Because long line fishing and possession of sharks and shark fins is illegal the population has drastically increased making this location one of the greatest dive spots in the world. Here you can see an upwards of 30 species of sharks including 10 different species of reef sharks including grey reef, black tip reef, and white tip reef sharks.
