What to see

Sharks patrol the waters of Chuuk Lagoon and you are likely to encounter them whilst enjoying the wreck dives. At the outer reefs, sharks are even more plentiful with many sightings of whitetip sharks, blacktip sharks, and grey reef sharks. Other pelagic fish like trevally, barracuda and tuna also frequent the reefs and sometimes the wrecks.

The wrecks are often littered with anemones, sponges, colorful reef fish and juvenile fish which use the wrecks to take shelter. Along the parts of the wreck encrusted with soft and hard coral, expect to find little blennies, squirrelfish, moray eels, porcelain crab, shrimp, nudibranch and camouflaged scorpionfish.

Description

Truk Lagoon Dive Center was established in 2002 and is based on-site at Truk Hotel.

The calm and clear waters around Weno Island are a must visit for wreck or shark diving enthusiasts. Shark Island is 15 minutes from the dive center and the nearby, current-free ocean is home to miles of unexplored coral reef. 

The dive center offers full equipment hire, personal lockers, showers, rinse tanks, and Bauer compressors capable of blending Nitrox and Trimix. A full range of PADI courses are offered including wreck diver, Nitrox and Rebreather. 

Two 30ft and one 19ft dive skiffs are moored on the private pier and facilitate daily dive trips in the morning, afternoon and night. All boats carry communications, oxygen, emergency first aid kits and fresh water. 

All instructors and boat captains have significant knowledge of the local seas, having grown up locally or lived in the area for many years.
