I have a work trip coming up to Majuro and will have a free day, so am thinking about getting in a day of diving and photographing.  I won't be able to get off Majuro so am limited to the lagoon or outer reef there. I have searched here and on ScubaBoard but have not found any recent info on sites or operators.  Anyone have advice on the prospects there?

It's been many years since I've dived Majuro.  The most interesting site is a WW II junkyard where the military dumped about 40  jeeps, deuce and a halfs, and half tracks.  It's called the parking lot.  An hour boat ride away is Arno Atoll.  I doubt if the dive operations then are still around, so you'll have to research that.

 

Hope that helps.

Thanks Eric for the tip.  I've been on the phone with the two hotels that claim to have dive operations but no luck.  I'm now networking to see if somebody can hook me up through private contacts
