Other Sports / Attractions

While Guam is best known for its watersports, diving and golf they are far from the only sports activities or attractions to be enjoyed on the island.

Sports Fishing, is a very popular pastime for both visitors and residents alike. The deepest water in the world, the Marianas Trench, is just east of Guam and the waters around Guam are hundreds of fathoms deep. A world record Blue Marlin, and still one of the world's largest at 1,173lbs, was caught just off Tumon in 1969 and large Marlin can still be caught all year round. Guam's surrounding waters offer an abundance of off shore gamefish including mahi mahi, wahoo and several species of tuna. Guam has a modern fleet of sports fishing boats available for half and full day charter.

Many visitors take a break from Guam's blue waters and enjoy exploring Guam's rugged hinterland, waterfalls, rivers and jungles. A number of tour companies offer hiking tours and there are regular local 'Boonie Stomps' and organised mountain bike sorties every weekend that visitors are welcome to join. Horse riding treks into Guam's wilderness areas are also available at the Southern Comfort Corral.

For those who really want their holidays to take off Skydive Guam offer the thrill of a lifetime - and the video to go with it - for those who dare. The Sling Shot, said to be the world's most extreme amusement ride, offers the next best thing and also comes with the video to prove you actually did it. Both light aircraft and helicopter introductory flying lessons are available from Micronesian Aviation Systems and Americopters at reasonable prices.

There is a proliferation of shooting galleries in and around the Tumon area catering to visitors with a strong "Rambo' instinct. Visitors can try their skill with a number of deadly weapons ranging from .357 magnums and colt 45's to Uzzis and M-16's in the safety of these purpose built indoor ranges. For more action of the 'Rambo' kind Guam Paintball offers an outdoor experience with a healthy adrenaline rush.

Grand Prix Guam USA also offer plenty of fast paced Go-kart action on a tight race track in Tamuning.

One of Guam's most recent and biggest entertainment attractions is the Sandcastles and Pleasure Island complex in Tumon. All of the above and more is offered in virtual reality and video at Spielberg's Gamworks. Visitors can explore the wonders of the UnderWater World at UnderWater World, the world's largest walk-through aquarium or experience close encounters with Bengal tigers at SandCastles' Tiger Garden.
