The best time to dive in Chuuk (Truk) Lagoon is from October to April although the Ghost Fleet can be dived year-round. Within these peak months, you can expect dry conditions. On the other hand, from June to the beginning of October, it tends to rain frequently. During these months, the diving is still good, and you’ll be able to find the best deals on liveaboards. Marine life and the conditions of the wrecks vary little from month to month. Water temperatures usually range from 81 to 86°F (27 to 30°C) within Micronesia. With waters as warm as these, you’ll only need to pack a 3mm wetsuit. Visibility in Chuuk is often fantastic. On a good day, you might experience seemingly endless visibility. However, some of the wrecks tend to have slightly diminished visibility at about 20 feet (8 meters). Finally, surface conditions in Chuuk (Truk) Lagoon can become a bit rough during the shoulder season. April, July, August, October and November often see high winds which toss the water about, making the liveaboard journey slightly less pleasant. However, these conditions rarely affect the scuba diving experience on the Ghost Fleet.
