With Guam’s historic role in World War II, plenty of shipwrecks surround the island for open water and advanced divers. If you’re a snorkeler, the American Tanker in Apra Harbor is pretty shallow and boasts a flourishing artificial reef. For experienced divers, there is another shipwreck worthy of your admiration; the Japanese freighter Kitsugawa Maru. A diving experience in Guam will not be complete without a visit to the Blue Hole. Most visitors are fond of taking photos with the iconic cavern during their underwater visit. But be careful, the hole drops a couple hundred feet from sea level.
