The Fish Eye Marine Park had just reopened after being closed due to covid for almost 2 years. It’s a short drive south out of the main city of Tumon on the island of Guam. You can stop at the mini-statue of liberty located in the park next to the cultural village.
The kids enjoyed the long walk out to the tower, then down the winding stairs to the observation area.
We saw lots of tropical fish, a couple turtles and at least 2 sharks (which didn’t seem to bother all the snorkelers nearby). I would recommend going on as clear of a day as possible so you get the best views of the coral and marine life.
There is an entrance fee, which gives discounts to those living on Guam and members of the military. Overall the kids really liked seeing all the fish and watching the snorkelers from below the water.
The Fish Eye Marine park is located in Piti almost across the street from the dive shop MDA (highly recommended for certified divers or those that want to learn). There is a small parking lot on the ocean-side of the road, otherwise park across the road and walk over, just be very careful with the traffic as cars travel very fast in this area.
Just further south is the entrance to Apra Harbor, which you can drive past the power plant and to the end of the entrance if you would like to explore the entrance. There were some surfers getting out of the water near the end of the road and was told there is some good snorkeling in that area as well.
There can be some great views of the island when flying into or out of Guam during the day. I would say Guam is worth a visit if you are in that region or even as a tropical alternative to international travel with all of the restrictions in place.
is on a decades old journey to experience the world.
