Diving in Marshall Islands

The Republic of the Marshall Islands is a sovereign country and an associated state of the United States. It gained its independence in 1986, and it makes up the eastern portion of Micronesia. This group of islands has had a tumultuous past; since the early 1500’s it was used as a port-of-call for European explorers; then, it was ruled by other numerous countries, and it saw many wars that weren’t theirs fought on its shores. It’s for all of these reasons that the people that inhabit the Marshall Islands are resilient and peaceful, and they take great pride in their islands.

The Marshall Islands, also known as the Republic of the Marshall Islands, is one of only four atoll nations in the world. This chain of volcanic islands and coral atolls offer a wide variety of dive site options suitable for every level of diver. The 29 atolls and five islands that make up The Marshall Islands, are mostly volcanic, creating the perfect substrate for over 250 hard coral species to flourish. Divers can do some of the world’s most fabulous coral reef diving in this place, with waters full of beautiful reef structures, coral pinnacles, drop-offs, and channels all thriving with marine life. Following WWII, this group of islands was used as a ship graveyard, which makes it one of the world’s best wreck diving destinations. The Marshall Islands are the 5th least visited country in the world, perfect for time alone in a place that will make you feel like you’re “away from it all!”
