About this program

Here’s a great opportunity to join Oceanic Society on an expedition to explore sea life in beautiful Micronesia. This naturalist-led snorkelling program gives you the chance to explore all of the underwater riches of Ulithi Atoll, Palau and Yap Island.

Discover white sand beaches, coral reefs, lagoons and the abundance of marine life that live in these crystal clear waters. Explore over 385 species of coral and at least 13 species of shark and manta rays. Visit Ulithi, which expects less than 150 visitors each year, affording you the feeling of being on a private island.
