I know we said it was the last trip but we had so much fun we just have to do it agaIn - So TAL Scuba is pleased to announce that we have again booked the Odyssey Liveaboard in Chuuk / Truk Lagoon - (We have the whole boat same as the last 3 trips!). We will be diving some of the best wrecks in the world! But it is not just wrecks, the Fish and Coral life are also incredible, and let's not forget the sharks.
Truk Lagoon - A small atoll in the Central Pacific, part of the Federated States of Micronesia, with constant average temperatures of 25 - 32 º C both on the surface and in the water! It became famous in the Second World War when during Operation Hailstone the United States sank 12 Japanese Warships, 32 Merchant Ships and a total of 249 aircraft were destroyed. - In Short the majority of the Japanese auxiliary fleet!
Today it hosts the capital of wreck diving and is dived all year round by hundreds of lucky divers. Highlights include:
- Massive shipwrecks (60 + ) including destroyers, freighters, and gun boats. Not to mention submarines, flying boats and the odd plane wreck!!
- Huge amounts of swim throughs and wreck penetration, allowing you to see the remains of the fleets operations. Peering in the holds you can see row upon row of fighter aircraft, tanks, bulldozers, motorcycles, cars, and railroad equipment. Munitions galore, including torpedoes, containers of ammunition, radios, more weapons than you could imagine, plus the billions of personal and smaller items carried for the troops aboard.
- And for the non-wrecky type there is masses of fish life, including Manta rays, sharks, and fish galore!
"...seeing is believing, words can not describe how awesome it really is!"
We have booked the whole of the liveaboard Odyssey. The best liveaboard of the lagoon!
