Truk Lagoon

7 and 10 night TRIPS

  • Arrival Airport: Chuuk International Airport (TKK), Weno Island
  • Departure Airport: Chuuk International Airport (TKK), Weno Island
  • Embarkation: Truk Stop Dive Centre, Weno Island
  • Disembarkation: Truk Stop Dive Centre, Weno Island

On a typical day you will be offered up to 4 day dives, however the 4th day dive may be substituted for a night dive when the boat is anchored within the lagoon. A 7-night itinerary provides for between 18-20 dives, whilst during a 10-night itinerary, up to 30 dives will be possible. The diving day aboard the Truk Master is scheduled as follows:

  • Light Breakfast followed by a briefing and Dive 1.
  • Full Breakfast, relaxation period, briefing and Dive 2.
  • Lunch, relaxation period, briefing and Dive 3.
  • Snack relaxation period, briefing and Dive 4, where possible. Dinner. 

Many of the wrecks lie within recreational diving depths, however the Truk Master also offers Tec diving facilities for those wishing to delve deeper in the wrecks and take a closer look at history.

   

Dive the superb wrecks of the Japanese WWII fleet which lay in a variety of depths with the Truk Lagoon. 7-night and 10-night itineraries allow you to explore not only many of the famous wrecks but also to experience some superb reef diving. There are numerous channels that cut through the reef which serve as hunting grounds for reef sharks and schooling pelagics, which all adds to the wonder of diving in Truk.

   

Truk Master departs from Weno, and the 7-night and 10-night liveaboard trips take you directly to the main concentration of wrecks lying within the bay. The Truk Master will moor over the deeper wrecks allowing for you to descend easily down the line directly to the wreck. Tec divers will benefit from the support of the “mother ship”, whilst 2 skiffs can shuttle less experienced divers to the shallower sites and offer reef diving as an alternative to the wrecks.

   

Many of the wrecks are “Maru” or merchant vessels that had been left at anchor, some had been fortified with anti-aircraft weapons and many carried important army supplies including Zero Fighter aircraft parts, tanks, torpedo shells, trucks and road supplies. Bottles, cooking utensils, items from everyday life and personal artifacts can be found in several of the wrecks, serving as a reminder to the visiting divers of those who lost their lives during the battle. The more gruesome reminders of the conflict, such as human skulls, have since been removed and may now only be seldom seen in the deeper reaches of the wrecks.
