Maps & Itinerary

Offering up to 4 dives per day, our 9 night liveaboard diving itinerary allows the possibility of up to 30 dives exploring the wrecks and reefs of Truk Lagoon. 

Many of the wrecks we visit are within recreational diving depth limits, while others are only suitable for divers with technical diving certifications. We  offer Tec diving* facilities on board for those with the training and experience to explore deeper 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.

The liveaboard vessel will 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”, whilst our 2 skiffs are able to shuttle less experienced divers to the shallower wrecks and offer reef diving as an alternative.

Although we typically offer up to 4 day dives, the 4th may be substituted for a night dive when the boat is anchored within the lagoon. Each diving day is usually 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
  • Dinner

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.
