Read on for full details.

On February 17, 1944, U.S. Navy carrier aircraft conducted Operation Hailstone, a surprise attack against Japanese ships anchored in the lagoon. The Navy dropped over 440 tons of bombs and torpedoes on the fleet, sinking 40 ships and killing thousands of Japanese soldiers. By the end of the operation, 16 warships and 32 merchant ships lay at the bottom of the lagoon. More than 250 Japanese aircraft were destroyed as well.

The wrecks are covered with life. There are over 300 varieties of hard and soft corals. On the outer reef you'll find mountains of coral that stretch as far as the eye can see, and drops off into the abyss. Here it is not unusual to see pelagic sharks.

The water temperature ranges from 82 to 84 degrees Fahrenheit. Visability ranges from 30' to 100' depending on where you are in the lagoon and there is little current.

This adventure on the Odyssey is open to and will support all levels of diver from basic open water to technical rebreather. Oxygen and CO2 scubber upcharges apply.

The diving in Truk Lagoon can accommodate a wide range of skill levels. Different divers on the same site, at the same time, can each dive according to their individual abilities. Most of the wrecks are within the recreational diving depth limit of 130 feet/40 meters. A few will have some portions of the wreck that are deeper but most of the wreck profile is shallower than 130 feet/40 meters. It is not uncommon for a wreck to have its deepest depth at 130 feet/40 meters and it shallowest depth at 30 feet/9 meters. Most of the dive time in Truk Lagoon occurs in depths ranging from 50 to 100 feet/15 to 30 meters. The technical part of diving in Truk comes more from wreck penetration than from depth. This is what allows the mix of skill levels on the dive sites. The novice diver can easily spend their time diving the outside of the wrecks with some light penetration of cargo holds and pilot houses. The technical diver can spend their time doing more extensive penetrations into engine rooms and other interior areas of the wrecks. A technical diver doing extensive penetration may find themselves incurring decompression requirements. On the other hand, recreational divers can enjoy long, shallower dives without incurring a need for decompression stops. Once during the week we try to schedule a side trip to the San Francisco Maru which is one of the few deeper wrecks in the lagoon ( 155 — 200 ft./45 – 60 meters). This dive is optional for those who are interested and qualified. During this dive the main boat will be at a different site to accommodate the recreational divers onboard.

The price is $3795 per person double occupancy.

We reccommend you travel to Truk (Chuuk) several days early to avoid any problems with flight delays. We like to stay at the Blue Lagoon Resort while we rest up and wait to board Odyessy. From there you can visit wrecks that the Odyssey does not visit, tour the island, and rest up from the long trip.
