During your stay in Truk Lagoon you will find that the majority of your diving will be done directly off the Odyssey whilst moored over the dive site. Once you arrive and set up your gear in your own private seat and dive locker, you won’t have to take your gear apart until you prepare to go home. The spacious dive platform has plenty of room for two divers plus a divemaster. There’s a 7 ft. ladder and an in-water elevator to help you out of the water where you can step up to the convenient freshwater shower to rinse off. On the dive deck there are camera rinse tanks and a large, sturdy, 3-tiered, carpeted photo table for all your working needs.

This armed cargo ship rests upright on the sandy bottom at 34m (110ft), rising up to 5m (15ft). She is one of the largest vessels at over 130m (430ft) in length giving plenty to explore. Decks are encrusted with corals as are her guns on the aft deck, whilst 6 holds contain a plethora of artifacts from the war, including Mitsubishi aircraft wings and Zero fighter propeller blades.

This Japanese destroyer sits upright in 38m (130ft) of water and is covered with corals that attract a wide variety of marine life. Her upper deck is at 21m (80ft) allowing recreational divers of advanced level plenty of opportunity to explore the wreckage.

This large oil tanker, now rests upright on the bottom encrusted with corals, sponges and hydroids. From the bridge you can see into the engine room whilst the galley still holds many utensils on the large stove. Small guns, mounted fore and aft are also covered with corals making this one of the most colourful and spectacular wrecks to be found in Truk.

Best known for its engine room, this patrol boat once boasted an array of gas masks and other fascinating artifacts, many of which have since been removed. However some can still be found scattered about the deck and it remains a stunning wreck dive site. The bow is in just 3m (10ft) of water, shallow enough to see whilst snorkeling, with the stern propeller at 15m (50ft).

Lying at a depth of 50m (150ft) this wreck is best suited to Tec divers, providing plenty to explore both within the wreckage and on her outside, including antitank guns, mines and a tank. The bridge, helm and superstructure remain chiefly intact and provide a good place to off-gas whilst watching the glassy sweepers that congregate there.

The largest ship in the lagoon, the Heian, originally used as a cargo ship, is 165m (510ft) in length and lies on her port side in 34m (150ft) of water. Within her holds divers may find torpedoes, shells and even the occasional periscope.

This passenger & cargo ship, weighing 5,831 tons, lies upright at a depth of 63m (195ft). Here divers can see the remains of many well preserved war-relics including three large tanks which rest on the deck at between 46-55m (150-175ft).

This submarine tender that was carrying torpedoes starts in just 3m (10ft) and drops to 33m (120ft). Inside the wreck you can find many personal artifacts, serving as a reminder of those who lost their lives during the battle.

The Rio de Janeiro Maru lies on her port side at a depth of 34m (110ft) with holds containing numerous artifacts from bottles to guns. Once a luxury passenger vessel she was converted to a cargo carrier for wartime and now provides divers with an easy exploration both inside and out.

Possibly the most famous reef dive in Truk, Shark Island is a fantastic cleaning station for Reef Sharks and at just 18m (60ft) is perfect for some “off-gassing” in the afternoon after a morning of wreck diving.

Diving Truk Lagoon
Truk is best known for its world-class wreck diving with over 60 wrecks, including supply vessels, 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 that we can see there today.

Many historical artifacts such as medicine bottles and newspapers along with articles of war, which include aircraft wings for the Zero Fighter planes, tanks, guns, gas masks and ammunition, can still be found at many of the sites. Whilst the wrecks themselves are encrusted with corals, you can still clearly see telegraphs, steering columns and mounted guns. There is also the opportunity to explore engine rooms and holds. Surrounded by a coral reef, there are many excellent coral pinnacles and deep channels with schooling pelagics too!
