Truk Lagoon liveaboard highlights

Truk Lagoon (or Chuuk Lagoon to give it its correct name) is best known for its world-class wreck diving and variety of wrecks ranging from supply vessels (Maru) to planes and a submarine, all tightly packed into a coral reef lagoon. 

During WWII, the Japanese fleet used Truk Lagoon as one of their main staging points for attacks on the allied forces. In 1944 the American-led “Operation Hailstone” surprised the fleet resulting in the plethora of dive sites which we can see there today. With over 60 wrecks to explore and an abundance of marine life, it’s easy to appreciate why Chuuk is on many scuba divers’ ‘bucket list’ and wreck enthusiasts travel to the area time and time again.

Unlike the wrecks of Bikini Atoll, the majority of the wrecks in Truk Lagoon are relatively shallow, and suitable for recreational and technical scuba divers alike. Find out more in our blog: How deep are the Truk Lagoon wrecks?

Whilst the wrecks themselves are encrusted with a variety of corals, you can still clearly see telegraphs, steering columns and mounted guns and many offer the opportunity to explore engine rooms and holds. Historical artefacts such as medicine bottles, gas masks and other personal effects can still be found at many of the sites along with machinery of war including engines, aircraft wings, tanks, guns and ammunition.  Surrounded by a barrier reef, Truk Lagoon has some excellent coral pinnacles and deep channels as well as an abundance of marine life to delight those scuba divers who want see more than just wrecks.

All your staff that worked on this boat made my stay so enjoyable. Your dive deck goes beyond taking care of myself and other divers. I was spoilt with my room being cleaned daily and all my meals coming from Chef was brilliant. I loved that the crew would come and chat with me on a daily basis, I felt so cared for by you all. Thank you to Adam and James for the insight and knowledge on each of the wrecks, and our movie night's which added another group bonding moment. Much love to you all

Our expedition was not normal for the captain and crew. They accepted our creative schedule with great understanding and practical help. They also shared their deep knowledge of oceans and marine activity and were honestly curious about the endeavours of the onboard artists. They and all your crew were so helpful at every stage - making us aware of safety at the same time as trying to making the difficult possible. Please extend our thanks to all and for helping with the charter.

What a phenomenal team on the Pacific Master led by Captain Hugo.... Going out to one of the most remote dive destinations, Bikini Atoll, the Taka, Pacific master always felt safe. I look forward to seeing you again soon and the bragging rights of such an epic trip, LOL. I will exaggerate my adventure many times over. Thank you to Master Liveaboards

The entire crew was amazing and very attentive. They were always trying to help however they could. The guides were very professional, and showed us some incredible sites (sic) on the wrecks with through briefings. The food was outstanding and Lisa and Roxy were very helpful and did amazing jobs keeping everything clean. The captain and the cruise director were top notch and represent Master liveaboards as a premier liveaboard.
