The WILD life

The upwelling of currents surrounding the atoll provide for an incredibly diverse marine environment. During the spring/summer months, the islands are home to the largest green turtle rookery in all of Micronesia and it is not uncommon to see 50 + of these giants crawling ashore and laying eggs at night. Green turtles are huge (upwards of 500 lbs) and a night expedition to tag and record them is something that you will never forget. Accommodations can be arranged for guests to spend a few nights on some of the most remote and pristine islands in the world.

Manta rays, dolphins, turtles, sharks, barracuda are all common sights in around the atoll.

The Islands

These remote islands also make important nesting habitats for seabirds, coconut crabs, and other endemic species. Coconut crab is the largest land-living arthropod and is basically giant hermit crabs without the shell. The untouched beauty of these postcards are just a short boat ride from the lodge and are a refuge for nesting red-footed boobies and greater frigates. Sharks cruise the shallow water and will take a fly. All of the islands of the atoll are palm fringed and quiet and peaceful on leeward side with beaches everywhere. The water is crystal clear and 84 degrees year round. The windward side is a completely different story, with huge rollers arriving unimpeded from 1000’s of miles away. Again the depth change makes for noticeably consistent tubes and is a surfer’s candy store. Most of these islands rarely see any visitors at all, let alone a surfer. Chances are you will be the first surfer ever. A quick stroll from the lodge you will find opportunity and chances are pretty good that you will have the waves to yourself. The backdrop for the lodge is unspoiled nature as far as the eye can see.
