Micronesia at its most beautiful - Chuuk Island

The many islands that make up this huge atoll are rich with natural beauty. The outer barrier reef is full of sand spits with coconut palms. The central lagoon features high islands which rise into the blue skies.

The pace of life in Chuuk is very slow and allows time to revel in the natural beauty. Many of the small islands are very lush and home to beautiful migratory birds. Bird watchers gather and camp in the high hills to see the bird life.

What to expect

The SS Thorfinn is 58m long and has 10 double occupancy rooms for 20 guests. A spacious comfortably furnished Salon features a 50” multi system LED TV with DVD player, a CD player with IPOD connection, and a surround sound 6 speaker system. The Bar provides a range of beverages – from coffee, tea, hot chocolate and soft drinks, to beers, wines and spirits at reasonable prices. 

2 Chefs make sure you are never hungry and are always fuelled and ready for the next dive

The Dining and Lounge Deck provides seating for 22 guests. Our friendly dining room staff serve breakfast cooked to order with other delicious meals chosen daily by the 2 Chefs from a varied menu taking any personal dietary requests into consideration. Full board, including water, tea, coffee, juices, snacks between meals and after dives, soft drinks, complimentary continental breakfast, with juice, toast, and coffee, friday night BBQ buffet, with cultural party by select local crew members are all included. Other soft drinks, local beer and wine can be purchased onboard.

An additional bookcase in the Salon overflows with many books in our library – feel free to leave a finished book and take a different one for the journey home. Out of meal times this is a quiet place to work on photos, or play a lively game of cards!

Seven rooms located on ‘D’ and ‘E Decks have Double or Queen size beds plus adjacent single berths. Private showers and toilets are fitted in each of these rooms. Three Cabins on the Lounge Deck share bathroom facilities.

The Spa Deck, location aft of the main guest lounge is favored after a dive or late at night with both south and northern constellations in clear view. With good music playing on outdoor aft speakers, a refreshment in hand and perhaps the right company …what could be more perfect? Our big commercial sized tub seats 12 people by design, and has actually had 26 party animals squeezed in for a New Year’s Party.

Two large, 3 tiered camera servicing and storage tables with a compressed air gun for cleaning and maintenance of camera equipment, are conveniently located adjacent to the main guest lounge. Each table has dual voltage 110V and 220V charging points.  The main lounge’s large plasma TV monitor and each of the guest rooms individual TV’s and DVD players make for opportune viewing of recently taken footage.
