Truk Lagoon is one of the very best wreck diving locations on the entire planet. And its location is close to the Coral Triangle - the world's center of marine diversity. The Odyssey is the only liveaboard to operate cruises in Truk throughout the entire year.

At 40m long, the Odyssey is a sturdy steel hulled motor boat and has 9 large staterooms to accommodate 16 guests. All cabins are air conditioned, and have private bathrooms and have a 32" monitor with access to onboard entertainment system. 2 of the cabins are for single travellers only. Staterooms are cleaned daily.

The indoor saloon is an attractive social area, naturally illuminated by the windows that run down its entire length. This is where the delicious buffet-style meals are served in the dining section. There is also a separate entertainment lounge with TV, VCR, DVD, stereo, movie and book library, and bar. All drinks are free of charge onboard the Odyssey! There is also a sun deck with sun beds, and a covered open-air social area.

The boat is tec-diver friendly and diving facilities include a large dive deck with a 3-tier camera table, a charging station, 4 rinse tanks – 2 for cameras and 2 for other gear. The dive platform has a fresh water shower, 2 ladders, and a fixed deco bar. All diving is done from the mothership and warm towels are provided after each dive. The use of enriched air nitrox is free of charge.

Please wait at least 18 hours before flying after diving.

Diving Environment: Truk Lagoon is a world-class wreck diving destination with over 60 wrecks, from supply vessels to planes and a submarine, tightly packed into a coral reef lagoon. The Japanese used Truk as one of their main staging points for attacks on the allied forces during World War 2 but in 1944 the American led Operation Hailstone surprised the fleet resulting in the huge number of wrecks that rest there today.
Many historical artefacts as well as war equipment, including aircraft wings for the Zero Fighter planes, tanks, trucks, guns, torpedo shells, gas masks and ammunition, can still be found while exploring the holds and engine rooms at many of the sites. The wrecks are encrusted with a wide variety of corals, and the lagoon itself is surrounded by a coral reef with many vibrant coral pinnacles, and deep channels where reef sharks roam and pelagics often appear.
Water temperature is typically 82-86°F (28-30°C).
