Description

Truk Lagoon

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 Americans led “Operation Hailstone” surprised the Fleet resulting in the plethora of dive sites which we can see there today.

Truk Master is the ultimate liveaboard exploring the Wreck Capital of the World & Diving Truk Lagoon and the Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands

The steel vessel, Truk Master, dominates the waters of Micronesia and Marshall Islands and will take Divers to the famous dive sites in Truk Lagoon. The expansive area of Wreck in this famous lagoon are surrounded by Colourful Reefs, Vibrant Corals, Pinnacles, Deep Channels and schooling Pelagics making this an epic Dive Safari Adventure.

A new unique itinerary starting in 2018 has been added to the Truk Master liveaboard, The Bikini Atoll 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. 

Divers will explore these two unique destinations and between dives relax on the different decks providing ample space as well as dive equipment and camera storage. The crew of Truk Master brings the highest quality service in the diving industry.
