Evaluation

*Average:    4.30
This is one of the easiest shore dives on Guam, and located at the far-right side of the tourist strip, Tumon Bay. Go as far right as possible on the paved road, then follow a dirt road down to a small beach alongside a big hotel. Gear up at your car, then walk 30' to knee-deep water, and follow a cable/pipe channel straight out. Returning, expect to clutch this cable/pipe to resist the rip tide in this cut. Once outside, head LEFT toward the hotels. Rightward is boring, and devastated by crown-of-thorns starfish who've killed the reef. Leftward is a paradise of candlestick corals, gradually sloping from 15' to 100' deep. Lots of spider-shells, large animals, & reef fish. Re-entry through a riptide, and the lack of a bathroom or shower, keep this from being perfect... but it's nearly perfect. Avoid snorkeling here if there are waves. Use thick felt booties, because spiny urchins and sharp rocks abound in the corals you walk across to enter.
