Has anyone had opportunity to dive Kwajalein in the Marshall Islands? I've found some info on it but it's pretty dated. We may have opportunity to dive there and I want to check it out before coughing up the airfare.

I did a lot of research on it a couple of years ago. When I was ready to seriously book the trip, I spoke with Mike who used to own Trips and Tours who has been booking trips to the Pacific for 30 years. He thought it was great....after I told him where I have dove ie...Palau, Fakarava, Rangiroa, Christmas Island etc....he said it was like Hawaii diving and the only way to see it was an LOB.....being I've done a lot of Hawaii Diving (Yawn...except for the Manta Dive in Kona) and I'm not in love with LOB's...I passed....Hope this helps...

Hmmm....don't think I'd want to travel over half the world to dive something similar to Hawaii, although it would be cool if headed there anyway.

I thought Kwaj had a lot of wrecks in the big lagoon and supposedly at one time had one of the largest scuba clubs in the world.

Sorry...I was looking at Bikini and Majuro Atoll....and being I'm not into wrecks that much and the diving just looked so so I passed...If I remember there is a German battleship or something(s) that is sunk at the Kwajalein Atoll....If you are into wrecks and hard corals maybe a good spot.
