Information & NOTES:

1. There are limited flight options into and out of Yap, FSM. It may be necessary to add extra days at the beginning or end of this itinerary to connect with international flights. We will be happy to assist you in arranging flights and any extra accommodations needed in such cases.
2. Depending on flight schedules a scaled down version of the tour may be possible for anyone who does not mind missing the Yap Day festivities. A limited number of “deck passage only” fares are available if you are able to get to and from Yap on your own and just wish to purchase ship passage – see opposite.

3. While remote and difficult to reach, the FSM are a fascinating destination offering unspoilt natural beauty, swimming, snorkeling, and scuba diving in pristine azure blue waters and friendly locals with distinct Micronesian cultures. There are also a wealth of WW II relics in this region, including quite a few on Woleai itself, as well as wreck diving opportunities, for those interested in the history of the great battles of that period. If you have the time before or after the eclipse we would encourage you to extend the duration of your visit to Micronesia to enjoy more of these experiences. We will be happy to assist with suggestions and arrange any optional activities you would like...remember, you may not have a chance to return to this far-off part of the globe very easily in the future so take full advantage of the opportunity while you are there!
