Truk is best known for its world-class wreck diving and with over 60 wrecks, from supply vessels (Maru) to planes and a submarine, 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 American-led “Operation Hailstone” surprised the fleet resulting in the plethora of dive sites which we can see there today.
Maps & Itinerary
Dive the superb wrecks of the Japanese Imperial Navy WWII fleet that are scattered around Truk Lagoon in a variety of depths. Our 7-night itinerary allows you to explore not only many of the famous wrecks but to experience some superb reef diving also. There are numerous channels that cut through the reef which serve as hunting grounds for reef sharks and schooling pelagics which all add to the wonder of diving Truk.
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 in the wrecks and take a closer look at history.
On a typical day we offer 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. On this 7 night itinerary between 18-20 dives will be possible. The diving day 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
Departing from Weno, our 7-night liveaboard dive trips on Truk Master take you directly to the main concentration of wrecks located within the bay. Truk Master will moor over the deeper wrecks allowing an easy descent down the line directly on to the wreck.
Technical divers will benefit from the support of the “mother ship”, whilst our 2 skiffs are able to 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.
