A wonderful place to snorkel and see tons of seagrass, fish, hard and soft corals. It is a ways out to swim, but worth the effort. Definitely recommend checking it out. It can be a little crowded depending on when you go.

Piti Bomb Holes (aka Fish Eye) is a great place for snorkeling. After you walk past the shallows( follow the path out by the bridge to Fish Eye) the water depth increases to about 10-40 feet. Snorkeling is best to the left of the fish observatory. It is also lots of fun to hang out by the fish by the... More

We had a great time here. The water is pretty calm, perfect for snorkeling. Lots of different fish, cucumber eels, and blue starfish.

Went there snorkeling with a coworker and was amazed to see all of the fish. Easy access with the walk out pier and super easy snorkeling , no big waves and water is very clear.

Visit at high tide and walk/snorkel out towards the end of the pier. If you visit at low tide, wear booties and open heeled fins. There's a drop off of about 25 feet after the reef. Tons of fish everywhere. Absolutely stunning! MDA divers is right across the street to rent tanks and gear - nice place, we did a... More

I cannot say enough amazing things about the snorkeling at Piti Bomb Holes Preserve. The water is fairly shallow until you get closer out to the observation deck where the depth really increases. On the right side a bit further out from the observation deck there is a shallow spot of bleached coral where you can rest if needed. The... More

This was one of the first places I snorkeled in Guam. Its easily accessible and a fairly safe location both for swimming and parking your car. Scuba has always been fun too. Its fun to swim or dive in front of the windows at the Fish Eye Marine Park and see the tourists faces when you are looking in at... More

THese are not real Bomb Holes, if you check around the area you too will find out that they are sink holes, caused by the reef caving in over lava bubbles, they look round like a could be bomb hole but they are not, they are good places to snorkel and view the fish though

We walked out in the shallow water under the Fish Eye Marine Park bridge until we were in deep enough water to snorkel. Schools of beautiful fish kept surrounding us waiting to be fed. We were a disappointment to them since we followed the advise we found on the Internet, don't feed them. We swam out to the underwater theater... More
