“Beautiful Site”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

Beautiful and amazing. Go with a guide if you plan to dive. But a trip just to see it is worthwhile!

“SIGNATURE DIVE OF SAIPAN!!!”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

I visited The Grotto with my family, all divers. My granddaughter is a new diver and enjoyed it immensely. The other divers in the family are dive instructor/divemaster and they told me that the first time they visited Saipan, they were there for 4 days and dove The Grotto 6 times. They dove through one cavern out to the sea and came back in another.

“Stunning”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

A great dive & snorkel spot, can be dangerous...as all water can be, be aware of tides and currents. It is a bit of a walk and can be slick. Worth it though, I would not recommend it for small children or the elderly.

“A famous must see”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Check out the pics on your favorite search engine. View from two overlooks or climb the steps down for world famous diving or just a swim, but don't miss it. Clarity of the water allows you to see nearly 100 ft down to the bottom where two openings breach the rock walls making a spectacular entrance to the open Pacific. It's a dive or swim you will never forget.
