Would you like to observe coral spawning in Saipan this summer?
The spawning forecast date for 2023 has also been released!
In Saipan, local diving instructors have played a central role for several years, and persistent observation and consideration have been continued to identify the spawning season of corals. As a result, we have been able to guide customers on coral spawning tours since last year. Of course, it's a natural phenomenon, so we can't guarantee 100% compensation, but last year there was a high probability that we could enjoy it together with our customers, so we have high expectations for this year as well.
Massive coral spawning is expected this year on July 9th and August 7th.
Why don't you have a mysterious diving experience at night in Saipan this year? Details below!
It's June. Every Saturday in Saipan, the biggest food festival in Mariana, "Taste of Mariana", starts.
It is an event that locals look forward to every year, and at the venue, selected menus from restaurants and hotels are sold. In addition to food booths, there are stalls selling local handicrafts and crafts, live performances on stage, various contests, and various event programs. (Ina's Kitchen) Chicken Wing Eating Contest will be held.
It's an event where you can enjoy local food and live performances as a memory of your trip, so if you're in Saipan on Saturday, please come and visit us. The place is a plaza called Fishing Base in Garapan where hotels are lined up.
Typhoon Mawa hit Guam the other day. Hotels, restaurants and activities are open as usual in Marianas without major damage.
If you are planning to travel to Saipan next month, please do not worry!
However, it is very important to be prepared for emergencies, as the old saying goes, "If you are prepared, you will not have to worry."
During this typhoon, flights were disrupted, and many people were stranded at the site because their return flights were canceled. In such a case, we recommend that you add compensation for flight delay costs to your overseas travel insurance as an option. Before departure, if the time of travel is likely to be hit by a typhoon, it is a good idea to enter just in case. Especially from now until September, it will be the typhoon season, so it is not to be underestimated.
Please take a moment to think about how to reduce unexpected expenses.
Typhoon No. 2 has hit Guam. I remembered that in 2018, Saipan was also hit by super typhoon Yutu, and the airport and hotel were damaged. I can only hope that Guam will recover as soon as possible and that the residents will be able to return to their normal lives.
Thanks to you, there was no direct damage to Saipan this time, and the swells of the sea have already subsided, and we are now approaching a sunny weekend.
The shuttle boats to Managaha Island have resumed operation from today, and people are returning to their daily lives. There is no fallen tree damage in tourist areas, so please come visit Mariana, including Saipan!
However, Rota Island is still damaged, and the electricity and water supply have been stopped. I hope you can recover quickly and get back to your daily life! Then, we will deliver today's video of Managaha below.
If you are in the Kansai area and love resorts and Korea, we recommend using Asiana Airlines for a great value Korean (Incheon Airport) transit Saipan tour!
In Saipan, you can usually buy souvenirs, and there is also a duty-free shop (DFS), but I still want to buy more brands and cosmetics (especially Korean cosmetics)! For those who say, Incheon Airport is a fun place no matter how many layovers you have. You can also enjoy delicious Korean gourmet while shopping.
Please experience the Saipan tour, where you can enjoy two cities at once with a connecting flight from Incheon!
Check out the tour below!
When you go on a trip, enjoying the local food and drink is one of the pleasures, isn't it?
Especially for beer lovers, if you can enjoy craft beer in the area, you will want to go there, right?
This time, I would like to recommend “Tapped Out” in Garapan to those who want to enjoy craft beer unique to the area. You can enjoy craft beer from various countries and regions, including craft beer made in the brewing area at the back of the store, along with delicious meals.
Luckily, they have Happy Hour every day from 5:30pm to 7:00pm!
The shop is located along Micro Beach Road in front of American Memorial Park. How about visiting before or after sunset at Micro Beach, which stretches into Garapan and Memorial Park?
The slightly silly face and the way it moves in and out is soothing! And "Montsuki Frogfish" which is popular among divers. Since they live in shallow coral reefs, some people may have seen them while snorkeling.
In Saipan, you can meet them at Objan Beach and Laulau Beach.
It might be a good idea to look for a snorkeling tour at a diving shop or when you enjoy snorkeling on your own. By all means, if there is a large coral root hole, please look into it.
