Boat Trip to Maug: Want to go?

Maug is the center island in the Marianas Trench Marine National Monument.

About 350 miles north of Saipan, it consists of three islands that surround the caldera of an ancient volcano. The ancient volcanic peak has eroded and is now a deep and spacious natural harbor. Steep cliffs border the islands and the landscape on the north and west islands is dominated by columns of basalt resembling tombstones. Vegetation on Maug consist mostly of grasses with a few coconut palms

At the end of this month I am chartering a boat to take 10 or more people to the center of Maug to watch the solar eclipse. And to go snorkeling. We will most likely go straight to Maug from Saipan and then stop at a few of the other islands on our journey back south.

There are a few spots available on the boat. If you would like to come, you have to be someone I like (just kidding) and pay your own way (not kidding). The cost of the 10 day trip will be just over $2000 each.

If you are interested, please contact me ASAP. Priority will go to certain people who already know who they are, after them spaces will be given out on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Had no idea George W. Bush was now in Maug.
