Silversea Expedition Cruises A WOLEAI ISLAND

WOLEAI ISLAND

Just slightly north of the Equator, Woleai is an atoll within the state of Yap. Although the Spaniards had heard of the presence of islands and atolls southeast of Guam, James Wilson of the missionary ship Duff was the first westerner to describe the island and islanders, claiming his ship had been greeted by some 150 local canoes with an estimated 1,050 men in them.

The wide atoll is in the shape of a lying figure eight with islets mainly on the northern reef, while the southern part is mostly submerged. Several large openings permit access into the West and East Lagoons. The largest of the islets is Falealop, formerly also known as Woleai. With five villages and more than 1,000 inhabitants it is the most heavily settled islet. Despite contact with the outside world, the inhabitants are still living a traditional lifestyle. A high school has been set up for the students of neighboring islands; there is a small clinic and a church. A runway dates back to WWII when the Japanese forces cleared Woleai’s forest to construct an airport and defense systems. Several derelict aircraft can still be found in the jungle. Traditional canoes are still being built in Woleai: small canoes for the lagoon and ocean-going outrigger canoes with which they can fish on the open ocean and even have gone to Chuuk -which is further away than their chiefly island of Yap- for trading.
