Dive the wrecks of the WWII Japanese Imperial Navy fleet that rest within Truk Lagoon at depths ranging from 18 metres to 64 metres. Many of the wrecks are “Maru” or merchant vessels that had been left at anchor in the lagoon. Some had been fortified with anti-aircraft weapons and many carried important army supplies including aircraft parts, tanks, torpedo shells, trucks and road supplies. Bottles, cooking utensils, personal belongings and other items from everyday life can be found in several of the wrecks, serving as a poignant reminder of those who lost their lives during Operation Hailstone.
Maps & Itinerary
*The itinerary above is an example only and is subject to change depending on local regulations, guests’ experience, flight schedules, weather and logistics and is at the Captain’s discretion. Adverse weather can affect this route which includes several overnight sailings.
Offering up to 4 dives a day, our 7 night Truk Lagoon liveaboard diving itinerary allows up to 22 dives exploring many of the famous wrecks within the lagoon.
Many of the wrecks are within recreational diving limits, while others are only suitable for divers with technical diving certifications. Truk Master offers Tec diving* facilities for those with the training and experience to delve deeper in the wrecks and take a closer look at history.
*Technical divers are responsible for their own dive profiles and must provide the cruise director with a copy of each dive plan.
We moor directly over the deeper sites allowing an easy descent down the line on to the wreck. Technical divers will benefit from the support of the ‘mother ship’, while our 2 skiffs are able to shuttle less experienced divers to the shallower sites and offer reef diving as an alternative to the wrecks.
The diving day is typically 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*
*In some circumstances, a night dive may be offered as the fourth dive of the day when the boat is anchored within the lagoon.
With comfortable accommodation for up to 16 guests, the steel-hulled Truk Master liveaboard boasts eight twin and double cabins with a choice of classic or premium cabins. Each cabin benefits from ensuite bathroom facilities and individually controlled air-conditioning.
The main deck enjoys 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 large TV 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 soak up the atmosphere.
