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).
