Why dive The Federated States of Micronesia (FSM)? Well, there’s the virtual underwater museum at Truk (Chuuk) and the legendary Manta Ray dives in M’il Channel to start with. The warm water and high visibility seal the deal. FSM is a grouping of 607 small islands in the Western Pacific about 2,500 miles southwest of Hawaii, lying just above the Equator. They include Chuuk, Kosrae, Pohnpei and Yap, four main island groups of the Caroline Islands. Palau, part of the Caroline Islands, is now an independent nation, and is not considered part of Micronesia. While the country’s total land area amounts to only 270.8 square miles, it occupies more than one million square miles of the Pacific Ocean, and ranges 1,700 miles from East (Kosrae) to West (Yap). Each of the four States centers around one or more “high islands,” and all but Kosrae include numerous atolls.
