Mangrove Bay Hotel has a sushi restaurant and a laid-back bar - ideal for watching the stunningly colorful sunsets! You can order breakfast from the cafe next door, to be delivered to your room. 

Excursions include tours to mystical Nan Madol ruins, majestic waterfalls, ocean adventures, surfing and cultural experiences.

What to see

At Palikir Pass, expect to see more than thirty and sometimes up to a hundred grey reef sharks especially on an incoming tide. Manta rays can be seen on a year-round basis and they often gather near channels with cleaning stations.

At the drop-offs and at the atolls, lookout for green sea turtles, humphead wrasse, groups of bumphead parrotfish and also groupers. Colorful reef dwellers bring the hard and soft coral reef to life and there will be many giant clams and anemones to inspect. There have been reports of pygmy seahorses spotted in the area so do comb through the sea fans for a potential surprise.

Dive Center

Highlights

  • Laid-back diving destination in Micronesia
  • Lots of passes, drop-offs, stunning coral
  • Sharks, mantas, schools of trevallies and barracuda!
  • Most dive sites are around 20 minutes away
  • Small groups, unlikely to see other divers underwater

Description

Pohnpei Dive Club is located on the 1st floor of Mangrove Bay Hotel, Pohnpei Island. 

Pohnpei is a laid back diving destination. The dive center boasts a beautifully peaceful location with direct access to the ocean and stunning sunset views. 

Look forward to lots of passes, drop offs and hardly any divers in the water. For most dives, your small group will be the only one you will see out there. Most dive sites are a short 10 minute boat cruise away. 

During your stay, you'll have the chance to see sharks, manta rays, schools of trevallies and barracuda along with other schooling reef fish!

Nudibranchs, sting rays, bumphead parrotfish, clownfish, napoleon wrasse, jacks, snappers and grouppers are common sightings.
