Pathfinder Bank is located approximately 275 km west of Anatahan in the West Mariana Arc. Pathfinder Bank is 3 km southeast of its plotted position on NOAA's Nautical Chart 81004 and includes areas shallower than 10 m, rather than the 8 fathoms (15 m) shown on the chart. It was mapped in September 2003 using single-beam sonar and an underwater video camera during the NOAA MARAMP cruise. Hard and soft corals were found on ridges of carbonate pavement, separated by channels containing rubble.
