Truk Lagoon

Truk lagoon is the perfect location for wreck dives. The Japanese naval base was attacked in 1944 by the United States. During this attack more than 60 ships were sunk and more than 200 airplanes went down. The waters here are deep and filled with many historical war artefacts.

All sunk wrecks created their own little marine ecosystems with sponges and corals. You will find grey reef sharks, stingrays, eagle rays, turtles, jellyfish and tropical fish here.
