Outstanding SCUBA diving on the wrecks

We did 4 dives a day from the live aboard Truk Master. It was a dream vacation! We have never before experienced such effortless diving. The crew and the boat were wonderful!

INCREDIBLE diving. it's not just about seeing the wrecks, there is an amazing array of soft coral on the shallower parts of wrecks. Each wreck has it's own special feature to offer. I will definitely be going back, I feel like I could dive here every year for 10 years and not see all there is to see. I am... More

Our group spent 7 days on a liveaboard diving the various wrecks in truk lagoon It was very interesting to hear the story of the ship or plane before the dive and then dive it. The wrecks are encrusted in all kinds of corals and a lot of fish call the wrecks home. If you are more into reefs you... More

I had the most epic time diving Truk lagoon, the dive crew at blue lagoon were simply excellent, I had researched 10 wrecks and was able to dive them all and some, these guys found their way by the positioning of the islands and knew their way through the wrecks like it was in their own home, Jonkey and Max...

Spent 11 days making 35 dives on 21 different wrecks. Stayed onboard the Truk Master liveaboard and were treated to VIP treatment by all the crew. The area is expensive and difficult to reach due to the rubbish service provided by United Airlines but it is well worth the cost and effort once you get there. Master Liveaboards/Truk Master provide... More

My two sons (both WW II history buffs) and I spent a week diving on the sunken wrecks of the Japanese merchant fleet that are scattered throughout this extensive Lagoon. It was a breathtaking, awe-inspiring (and all those other superlative adjectives) experience. We were fortunate to be able to visit this remote location on the live-aboard dive vessel "Truk Odyssey".... More

We spent a week diving Truk Lagoon from the Odyssey. Diving Truk is a must for wreckdiving aficionados. There is no better. And if you want do dive from a liveaboard do choose the Odyssey. By far the best liveaboard I have been on in all aspects. The briefings are complete, the food is good, the divestaff is exellent. It... More

Beautiful and full of awe- historically significant, you can see WWII aircraft just below the surface, snorkel the surrounding sea life, and scuba the history. The surrounding atolls and islands are of astounding beauty, and all with a touch of the other world, far from many a shore.
