Country: Federated States of Micronesia
Truk in a Nutshell - Truk Lagoon is considered by some to be the best wreck diving destination in the world, with over 60 World War II wrecks. The wrecks have a good amount of marine life on them, but some are quite deep, with the bottoms in the 100 - 150+ ft. range. The name "Truk" is actually a corruption of the native name for this area, Chuuk, which is part of the Federated States of Micronesia. Due to its Natural Harbor - Truk was a strategically located, Japanese Naval Base during WWII.
Visibility: You are in a lagoon, so visibility is good but not excellent; 40-60 ft. / 12-18 m. is the norm, and 30 ft. / 10 m. visibility would be a bad day. Sometimes visibility can reach 80 ft. / 24 m. or more, especially if it hasn't been raining (November - February).
Water Temperatures: 81-84 F / 27-28 C in the winter, 83-86 F / 28-30 C in the summer / early fall.
The Fujikawa Maru is also a favorite wreck to dive, filled with fish and corals.
Topside & Non-Diving Activities - If you have time, don't forget to do some WWII relic excursions! Deep sea fishing trips beyond the outer reefs can also be arranged.
