Featured: Underwater Wedding on Saipan!!
Chris and Kayla
"My husband is in the US Navy and first went to Saipan as a port visit 2 years ago. We visited
Saipan last year for our honeymoon and again this year! It has crystal blue waters and is a great place to relax.
We booked our tours through SaipanBookings and would recommend them for future travels. They arranged pick up
to and from our activities as well as fast responses on any questions I had before my trip!"
Q: What was the best part of your trip?
"I enjoyed spending time at the beautiful beach at our hotel as well as the dinner cruise with my husband.
Last year we went para sailing and jet skiing and had a blast with both activities!"

Tikla and Austin
"I lived on Saipan with my family for several years and loved it! After I left for school and married Austin, I just had to come back and show him all the places and people I love. My friends and I used to camp out on Managaha all the time and I wanted to do that with him! Talk about the most romantic trip ever! The weather was perfect on Managaha and my husband LOVED it!! We snorkeled in the bright blue water and then pried open some coconuts for a snack. We had the whole island to ourselves for a very peaceful, beautiful night. He loved the crabs all over the beach in the morning and it was super romantic of course. Thanks for being so helpful! You made the whole experience easy and enjoyable. I can't thank you enough!"
p.s. Sorry for the delay getting back to you! We had such a great time I didn't even check my email!! :)
And I love the newsaipan.com site! What a great mission. Here is an official statement if you like it better: "We booked a ferry to Managaha through DiscoverSaipan. The whole thing was super easy thanks to the prompt feedback I received before I came. When we arrived on the dock the boat operators were extremely friendly.Here is a photo (I think we look pretty good for having just camped on an tropical island, wouldn't you say? ;)
Kind Words from China
"My wife and I were considering moving to Saipan when we took the trip in December 2009.
Walt at DiscoverSaipan helped us to secure the night on the arriving day with a nice
and clean hotel in the tourist area. It was also a breeze when we wanted to extend one
night with the same hotel. We wanted to stay with a local family and Walt also helped us
in finding the homestay. Walt even accompanied us to rental car return and the airline
check-in counter on the departure day. We found the service to be reliable and responsive.... We recommend
the service to visitors who want to have a tour of Saipan
more catering to their individual tastes and/or an off-the-beaten-path experience." Q:What did you like best about Saipan?
"...I found that what really impressed me are the following:
The color of the water near Managaha island and Memorial Park,
and in other locations around the island. It is the color of bright Jade.
Just loving it!
How safe it feels. During the days that I did the homestay, the entrance was never locked
. I used to do that in California so
it was not surprising to me, but it would be shocking to a person who has only
lived in the urban areas of most cities, where a steel door entrance is a must to fend
Beautiful, but uncrowded beaches. Better yet, beaches that are all public!
It is definitely touching to a person who has gotten used to seeing signs saying
"private property, do not trespass" in many scenery spots in other parts of the US.
I know this is probably not an exciting testimonial, but it is true to my heart.

"Kind words from Ukraine, via New York (Relocation Tour)"
"I moved to Saipan from New York in late 2009, and was very fortunate to come across one of a number of very informative
web sites maintained by Walt Goodridge, director of SaipanBookings, that are dedicated to Saipan. I wrote to him shortly, and
was amazed to discover what a caring, knowledgeable, and accommodating person he is. From the moment I met Walt all
my uncertainties and questions about my new life on Saipan have disappeared. Walt came up with a myriad of lodging options
for me, which met my budget, and the choice was basically between "very good" and "even better". Walt knows the best places on
Saipan for lodging, shopping, and entertainment that will not cost you a fortune. From telecommunications, to farmers' markets,
to postal service, Walt's got the answer as to what, where, how much, and what's best. He anticipates any pitfalls you may encounter arising from your newness to the island, and is swift in helping you avoid same. Most of all, he is down to earth, gracious, very genuine and easy to communicate with, optimistic and unmercenary person. In my opinion Walt is the best guide on the island, by far, that you may find. At times forgetting of his own needs, and generous with his time and knowledge, he is at all times concerned that your experience on Saipan is the best possible oSimpleGridne. Thank you Walt!!!"
