Off the northwest side of Saipan, the snorkeling at Managaha Beach is the most popular snorkel dive on Saipan due to its crystal clear water. But, with that said, there is really not much to see even with that high visibility here. Except, you can expect to see thousands of other tourists daily on this small island.
Located within the Managaha Marine Conservation Area, this area is accessible by boat from the mainland. There is an admission fee required to land on the island, in addition to the boat fee.
To reach the Saipan snorkeling by air, fly into Saipan International Airport (SPN) located on the southern end of the island. It is a five hour flight from Hong Kong or a 40 minute flight from Guam.
While January to April is considered to offer the best tourist weather, the best time of year for snorkeling on Saipan is from June to August. Saipan is located outside of the typical typhoon belt, so the reefs are nearly pristine and undamaged.
Overall, Managaha Beach is the 5th most popular snorkel dive spot of all 6 snorkeling dives in Northern Mariana Islands.
