Truk Lagoon is recognized as the world’s greatest wreck diving destination and for good reason. More than 60 World War II Japanese war ships and aircraft were sunk during Operation Hailstone in February of 1944 and now rest peacefully on the floor of Truk Lagoon. All of these sunken monuments are accessible to the scuba diver – most at a depth suitable for the novice or sport diver.For more information about the wrecks of Truk Lagoon please visit TrukWreckDiving.com
Reef diving is one of Chuuk’s best kept secrets because the focus and thrill of diving Truk Lagoon is the wrecks. Truth is, Chuuk has miles and miles of mostly unexplored reef and on the rare occasion a diver decides to dive a reef dive they see a wide variety of big and small fish, turtles, and vibrant corals. It is further to the reef than any of the wrecks so it is usually a single trip in the morning
or the afternoon.
You can see sharks on many of our wrecks on any given day in fact, the Shinkoku Maru has what we call “a resident shark” that can be seen on most dives. But, Shark Island just a 15-minute boat ride from the Truk Stop private dock, is the best shark dive in Chuuk.
