With comfortable accommodation for up to 16 guests, the steel-hulled Truk Master Liveaboard has eight twin and double cabins with a choice of classic or premium cabins. Each cabin benefits from en suite bathroom facilities and individually controlled air-conditioning.

The main deck comprises a spacious indoor dining room along with a camera station, complete with numerous charging points and storage space. Unwind and relax after a fantastic day of diving in Truk Master’s indoor lounge and bar, with a plasma screen which is ideal for movie and photo viewing. Alternatively, why not head out to the shaded outdoor relaxation area or the large sundeck and sink into a lounge chair to just soak up the atmosphere.

The vessel has a large dive deck, with individual set up stations, under-bench storage, and camera table; with a large entry platform to the rear. Truk Master is fully equipped to cater for recreational, technical, and rebreather divers.

NOTE: On Bikini Atoll itineraries, Truk Master is limited to a maximum of 12 passengers due to space limitations for equipment storage. Spaces will only be available in premium cabins located on the lower and mid decks. Each cabin benefits from ensuite bathroom facilities and individually controlled air-conditioning. Cabins 1 and 8 are not available for use by guests’ use on Bikini Atoll trips. While the boat is fully equipped to cater for recreational, technical, and rebreather divers, she will be exclusively for technical divers in Bikini.

First a word about the diving. Diving the ghost fleet of bikini is simply awesome. Some of the best wreck diving in the world, where else in the world can one dive on an aircraft carrier, battleships, destroyers, and attack subs on one trip and also see tiger sharks on deco! The fish life and sharks are healthy and adds excitement on each dive. Now a word on the boat and crew, they were simply five stars.
One of the best ever destination for wreck diving

Pluses Genuinely comfortable cabins with quiet engine Very well run dive operations with best in class protocols including great attention to gas mixes and pre dive checks. Very attentive crew Great dive sites. To be improved: Food could be more diverse even in this difficult environment for fresh supply Dive guide(s) and/or more intelligence about individual ships opportunities for penetrations? Better layout of the back upper deck with bin bags or other lounging chairs?
A wonderful experience

The service onboard Truk Master was excellent. I enjoyed every minute of my stay. My expectations regarding the wrecks were high to begin with, but the real experience was even better. Thanks to everyone on Truk Master I had a splendid vacation.
Such a warm welcome

This was the dirty dozen trip, a full CCR exploration of Chuuk lagoons best wrecks. The boat has everything you want for tech diving, with a few wrinkles such as O2 percentages to be ironed out. This is more than made up for by the crew who counderstand not have been more helpfull deck crew are attentive and respectful of tech gear. The food is very American style, lots of fats and sugars and eating healthily requires more effort than it should but I am confident this will be resolved on future trips.
