Truk Lagoon liveaboard highlights
Truk is best known for its world-class wreck diving and with over 60 wrecks, from supply vessels (Maru) to planes and a submarine, tightly packed into a coral reef lagoon. It is easy to appreciate why divers travel to this area time and time again.
Wreck diving paradise
Amazing remote atoll
During WWII, the Japanese fleet used Truk as one of their main staging points for attacks on the allied forces but in 1944 the American-led “Operation Hailstone” surprised the fleet resulting in the plethora of dive sites which we can see there today.
Many historical artifacts such as medicine bottles and engines along with articles of war, which include aircraft wings for the Zero Fighter planes, tanks, guns, gas masks and ammunition, can still be found at many of the sites. Whilst the wrecks themselves are encrusted with corals, you can still clearly see telegraphs, steering columns and mounted guns.
There is also the opportunity to explore engine rooms and holds. Surrounded by a coral reef, there are many excellent coral pinnacles and deep channels with schooling pelagics too!
