Shipwrecks of Truk Lagoon

€0 Inc. VAT

The legacy of Truk Lagoon was born out of warfare, from a period of bloody history surpassing all before. Today in stark contrast, an entire fleet which aided that destruction, lies silently on the bottom of the lagoon. After almost seventy years these vessels remain a museum to that conflict but have been reborn, brought back to life by Mother Nature.
The wrecks are all very well documented and this publication is a mere introduction to the wrecks and is intended as an introduction for those thinking of visiting Truk. Peter has detailed a handful of his favorite wreck sites after his 12 visits. You can download the FREE digital low resolution version from here:

By Peter Collings:  The legacy of Truk Lagoon was born out of warfare, from a period of bloody history surpassing all before. Today in stark contrast, an entire fleet which aided that destruction, lies silently on the bottom of the lagoon. After almost seventy years these vessels remain a museum to that conflict but have been reborn, brought back to life by Mother Nature.
I first visited these wrecks back in the early 80’s, about the same time as my adventures began in Egypt. But these wrecks are a beacon to the rest of the world in terms of conservation. In those thirty-five years I have seen little change in the Truk wrecks, save some damage caused by livaboard vessels. Indeed the coral and fish life seems to get better as time goes on. Those responsible in Egypt should take note!
The wrecks are all very well documented and this publication is a mere introduction to the wrecks and is intended as an introduction for those thinking of visiting Truk. I have selected a handful of my favourites after 12 visits! That list is growing!

The wrecks offer diving for all levels, water temperature at 29/30 degrees, 100ft visibility and no currents, not only is it a hallowed location but a perfect classroom for those wishing to improve their wreck diving skills. Over the eight expeditions so far we have averaged some 30 x 70 minute dives, each over our nine day stay.
While I would always recommend livaboard diving. Truk is a different story. Currently the livaboards offer six days unlimited diving, that is five dives a day. A tough relentless schedule and more expensive! We have observed these floating hotels anchored up and using their skiffs in the same way as hotel based operations. Choose wisely.
