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.
The Truk Lagoon is roughly 40 miles in diameter and encircles 14 major, populated islands. Weno Island is the Capitol Island of Chuuk State and home to the Truk Lagoon Dive Center. Our lagoon map will show that the majority of these wrecks are highly concentrated in just 3 areas - all within a few miles of each other. Travel time from the Truk Stop Hotel's private dock to most of these wrecks is less than 20 minutes.
The Truk Lagoon Dive Center offers a two tank am or morning dive then additional one or two tank dives in the afternoon. The most commonly visited or favorite wrecks chosen by divers are:
