The steel-hulled Truk Master liveaboard offers a choice of Classic, Premium and Superior double or twin cabins, providing comfortable accommodation for up to 16 guests*. Each cabin benefits from individually controlled air-conditioning and private ensuite bathroom facilities with hot water.

Truk Master’s main deck comprises a spacious, indoor dining room along with a camera station, complete with numerous charging points and storage space. After a fantastic day’s diving, unwind and relax on the upper deck’s indoor lounge and bar area which is fitted with a plasma screen for guests to watch movies or show off their photos.

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.
