Truk Lagoon (also known as Chuuk) is best known for its world-class wreck diving and with over 61 wrecks, tightly packed into a coral reef lagoon, it is easy to appreciate why divers travel to this area time and time again.
During WWII, the Japanese fleet used Truk as one of their main staging points for attacks on the allied forces. But in 1944 the America led "Operation Hailstorm" and surprised the fleet resulting in the plethora of dive sites which we can see there today.
Many of the wrecks lie within recreational diving depths, however M/Y Truk Master also offers Tec diving facilities for those wishing to delve deeper. Historical artifacts such as medicine bottles and newspapers 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 dive sites.
The wrecks themselves are encrusted with corals, however you can still clearly discern 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. Explore Truk Lagoon, the Wreck Capital of the World on board M/Y Truk Master and dive deeper into history.
