Truk Lagoon: One of the World’s Best Wreck Diving Destination!

Why We Love It

Halfway between the Philippines and Hawaii, Truk Lagoon has an unparalleled density of WWII wrecks! During Operation Hailstone in February 1944 and Operation Inmate - a small assault conducted by British and Canadian forces in June 1945 - several Japanese planes and more than 50 ships were sunk by the American Army. These days, scuba divers can explore a variety of vessels: armed cargo ships, huge tankers, small destroyers, submarines, etc., all covered in stunning coral reefs and teeming with wildlife. Truk Lagoon is widely renowned as the best wreck diving destination in the world.


The mother company has removed all single-use plastics from its fleet and organizes regular clean-up dives. They support various NGOs worldwide, such as the Manta Trust or the Ocean For All Foundation.

Who Is It For?

With all ships between 15 and 40 meters, the dive sites are accessible to Level 2 (Advanced Open Water) and above divers. A Deep Specialty is recommended for going down to 40 meters. The liveaboard caters to rebreather/tech divers.
