From the ship graveyard of Bikini Atoll to the first-class reefs found in Arno Atoll, the Marshall Islands is a playground for divers. Here you can find 1000 species of fish and 250 species of coral.
The Marshall Islands attract scuba divers with unusually healthy underwater environments. The most famous diving area is Bikini Atoll, where you’ll find a graveyard of shipwrecks created by American nuclear testing in the 1940s. Today, diver access is limited, but those who do visit will find undisturbed reefs and wrecks (including an aircraft carrier) with bountiful fish life. The other dive destinations in the Marshall Islands are Majuro, Arno Atoll and Rongelap Atoll. Because of the spread out nature of the atolls, a liveaboard is the only practical way to dive this country. Typical itineraries are 7 to 14 nights, and the best time to dive in the Marshall Islands is from May to October.
