Truk Lagoon Itinerary (7 & 10 Nights)

Truk is best known for its world-class wreck diving and with over 60 wrecks, from supply vessels (Maru) to 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 which we can see there today. There are many excellent coral pinnacles and deep channels with schooling pelagics too!

  • Truk Master
  • On a typical day, they offer up to 4 day dives, however the 4th day dive may be substituted for a night dive when the boat is anchored within the lagoon. A 7-night itinerary provides for between 18-20 dives, whilst during the 10 night itineraries, up to 30 dives will be possible.
  • The diving day aboard the Truk Master is scheduled as follows:
  • > Light Breakfast followed by a briefing and Dive 1
  • > Full Breakfast, relaxation period, briefing and Dive 2
  • > Lunch, relaxation period, briefing and Dive 3
  • > Snack relaxation period, briefing and Dive 4, where possible.
  • > Dinner

 

Bikini, Republic of the Marshall Islands Itinerary

Bikini Atoll is part of the Republic of the Marshall Islands, which covers nearly 1 million square miles of idyllic emerald-green coral atolls, surrounded by the crystal-blue waters of the Pacific. A one of a kind diving paradise, as it features not only beautiful reefs, corals and wonderful marine life. Above all, it is the final resting place for some of the most significant warships in history. Bikini Lagoon is the first UNESCO World Heritage site for the Marshall archipelago and is undisputedly ranked first on any serious wreck divers’ bucket-list. This is well justified; nowhere else on earth will you be able to dive such a unique collection of historic battleships, cruisers, as well as the world famous USS Saratoga aircraft carrier with its 270m (888ft.) flight deck.

  • Truk Master
  • As most wrecks at Bikini Atoll are beyond recreational depth limits, this itinerary is recommended only for technical divers with previous wreck experience. Your Cruise Director will schedule min. 2 dives per day. The diving day has a typical schedule as follows:
  • > Breakfast followed by a briefing & Dive 1
  • > Lunch, relaxation followed by briefing & Dive 2
  • > Snack, relaxation,
  • > Dinner
