Guam Fishes on Reef Ocean Guam, the Mariana Isles, and Micronesia are renowned for their vivid turquoise lagoons, deep-sea currents and the clarity of their water. Between December and May, visibility underwater is as much as 150 feet, and even during the wet season is as great as 60 feet. The average water temperature is 85F (27C) year-round. From time immemorial, our ancestors have fine-tuned the art of spearing/netting fishes. The variety and spectacular abundance of Ocean Denizens and 150 types of coral are why Scuba diving/snorkeling and Fishing are popular in Micronesia. Snorkeling spots for beginners include the protected bays inside the reef at Tumon Bay and at Merizo.
