Join Liquid Productions in partnership with Lust4Rust Diving Excursions in one of the most exciting wreck diving destinations on the Planet. Truk (Chuuk) Lagoon is located in the Federated States of Micronesia in the South Pacific. During WWII it was Japan’s most formidable stronghold and their main base in the South Pacific theatre. It served as an anchorage for Japan’s Imperial fleet. In February 1944 American forces attacked Truk “Operation Hailstone” which lasted for 2 days sinking 12 warships, 32 merchant ships and destroying 275 aircraft. Truk is now considered the largest underwater shipwreck graveyard in the world. Not only are the wrecks intact with cargo holds of planes, trucks, bullets, bombs, bones, machinery, gas masks, torpedos and more!  On the decks there are battle tanks, guns, pom-poms, bridges with intact telegraphs, and inside engine rooms will blow your mind! The exterior of the wrecks are an explosion of color and stunning soft corals and marine life. This is a must for any wreck enthusiast or underwater photographer.

We will be staying at Blue Lagoon Resort  and doing all of our diving with them. Each boat will only hold 4-6 divers. This ensures that there aren’t that many divers on each wreck at one time. This also gives us flexibility as to dive sites during the trip. This also means if you are a hard core CCR diver or a recreational OC diver we can cater to everyone’s experience and runtimes. You are able to choose your own runtime and plan on each dive giving you the ability to get the most out of your trip!

Truk is a remote place and with doing so much decompression diving, long travel days, and doing longer run times after multiple days that most may not be used to there will be a Hyperbaric Physician along for any diving or medical emergencies. There is a chamber and Hospital in Truk. You are required to carry dive insurance / DAN.

We will typically do 2 long dives a day (single tank OC divers may do more). The first leaves around 8:30am to dive a deeper wreck then head back out again around 2pm after lunch and a break. Remember we will be diving for 12 days! If you spend the effort to get there it’s nice to really see Truk and get a lot of diving in.

This trip is open to all certification levels from advanced/nitrox single tank divers to trimix OC and Trimix CCR. We will sort you out by certification/experience level on each boat. Many of the wrecks are just 40-130 ft deep.
