What To Expect

The entrance gate for Fish Eye Marine Park Underwater Observatory is located in Tepungan beach which is a major part of the Piti Bay Marine Preserve near the quant village of Piti. This sea bridge crosses a broad reef flat and is a four-minute walk to the amazing undersea structure. Enjoy the sun and the breeze and Guam’s clean air as you look at divers and snorkelers heading out to the deep waters surrounding the observatory. Look over the side to see corals and fishes and amazing ocean colors. At the observatory you will see photographs on all of the walls showing the marine life of Piti. They were taken by Guam photographer Tim Rock, an internationally published photojournalist. Walk down the intriguing spiral staircase. The walls are covered in hand-painted art of wild ocean creatures from the imagination of Japan’s famous artist XXXXXX. As the stairs end, the cool blue light of sea pours through the windows and you can see fish and coral reef outside. Huge windows give great views. Walk around the entire circular structure. Each window has something to offer. One may have a Nemo clownfish and its sea anemone. The other a school of snapper or butterflyfish. Look out to the many castle corals. On the way back up, more XXXXX art entertains you as you spiral back to the top deck. Then go outside to watch the activity from our 360-degree viewing deck. The amazing hues of emerald, blue, sapphire and tan combine to give you an incredible view of this marine preserve’s treasures. Leisurely stroll back down the pier admiring the bay’s beauty.

Piti Bay Marine Preserve is where the underwater observatory is located. It is one of Guam’s five marine preserves and also includes Tumon Bay and three others. Piti has a brilliant natural color graduation. Not visible to the human eye, sunlight contains 7 different colors just like a rainbow. Because of the relationship between the color wavelength and the different depths of the ocean, the colors of red, orange and yellow get absorbed easily in the water. The color red is gone after the first ten feet, which is why underwater photographers use strobes… so they can restore that color. From our observatory outer deck, one can see amazing hues of blues. In a bay like Piti where there are large shallow areas, some colors do not get absorbed completely resulting in a broad spectrum of hues in the shallows. The color green appears in the white sandy ocean floor, dark brown spots are seen where there are coral heads and the color blue will appear in a wide array of shades in the deeper portion of the observatory’s location. This is the reason Piti Bay is, no doubt, one of the most beautiful places on the island. When you stroll on the pier walkway heading to the observatory tower, don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy the amazing artistry created by our wonderful Mother Nature.
