Truk Lagoon

Truk lagun är den perfekta platsen för vrakdyk. Den japanska flottbasen attackerades 1944 av USA. Under denna attack sänktes mer än 60 fartyg och mer än 200 flygplan störtade. Vattnet här är djupt och fyllt av många historiska krigsartefakter.

Alla sjunkna vrak har skapat sina egna små marina ekosystem med svampar och koraller. Här hittar du grå revhajar, rockor, örnrocka, sköldpaddor, maneter och tropiska fiskar.
