Evaluation

*Average:    2.63
Note that 'Cemetery Wall' is the dive done from the boat that heads toward shore to see the Amtrak before turning around. I've never met anyone who has done the wall from the shore. Some call this dive 'Agat Cemetery'. Once you enter the water left of the pipeline head out past where the water breaks over the pipe and go due west. You're pretty much in a large canyon between coral almost the entire way and the only time someone generally familiar with the site will need to look at the compass is at the sand flats just before the Amtrak, though you could easily find it without a compass by bearing left and following the coral wall. This is a fine dive even if you never find the Amtrak, with a maze of canyons between coral walls, decent number of fish, and the odd anemone bed. With a bottom of about 55', if you dig, it's a nice dive to get rusty or newly certified divers comfortable in the water. The mouth of a small river is nearby so visibility can drop to 30' or less after rain and the 'Beer Gardens' of cans that drift to the bottom are the focus of cleanup divers at least twice a year. Still, every once in while you get a day of 100'+ viz and the dive becomes really special. One of the old reliables for Guam shore divers.
