Fouha Bay Snorkeling

The 8th most popular snorkel dive spot in Guam.

Southwest of Guam International Airport and north of Umatac, the snorkeling at Fouha Bay is popular for the spinner dolphins. This is mainly a boat accessed snorkeling dive with water ranging from 3 to 30 feet deep.

The best time of day for Coral Gardens snorkeling is slack high tide for the highest visibility. Keep an eye out for the spinner dolphins known to frequent the waters just offshore.

To reach the Guam snorkeling by air, fly into the Antonio B. Won Pat International Airport (GUM) which is located in the middle of the island. The Fouha Bay snorkeling dive is located just to the north of Umatac Bay.

While the dry season is typically January to June, the best snorkeling on Guam is during the months of May through August. The highest water clarity can be found if there is an incoming tide during the morning. While snorkeling in Guam, keep an eye out for green sea turtles, hawksbill turtles and dozens of species of sharks. Overall, there are over 700 species of reef fish and over 300 species of coral on the fringing reefs. Most snorkelers stay within the fringing reef since there is usually a strong current just beyond the reef. There are a couple lesser well-known snorkeling dive sites off the east coast of Guam, which should only be attempted during the local summer months and then only with extreme care.

Overall, Fouha Bay is the 8th most popular snorkel dive spot of all 17 snorkeling dives in Guam.
