Diving the World War II Japanese Wrecks


    Here's your chance to dive the famous World War II Japanese wrecks of Truk Lagoon for two weeks Aug 26th through  Sep 9th   2012 onboard the Odyssey

Don't put off diving the wrecks of Truk Lagoon

as time is taking it's toll on the wrecks

    Contrary to the misconception that the wrecks of Truk Lagoon are deep, the majority of them rest in less then 130 ft of water making it possible to reach the deck without exceeding a depth of 100 ft. The superstructures are as shallow as 30 ft with some of the King Posts, which are completely overgrown with marine life, coming within 7 ft of the surface.

Photographers have been known to do a whole dive photographing the life on the

King Post of the Fujikawa Maru and not go below 40 ft.

A typical day of diving is 2 morning dives, 2 afternoon
dives and a night dive (a dawn dive can sometimes be done).

    The two week trip is $5500 and includes two weeks onboard the Odyssey (see which has been rated by Rodale's as the best live-aboard in the world; Enriched Air (Nitrox) for those certified to use Enriched Air; Chuuk taxes and transfers. Oxygen used to produce gas blends greater than 30% oxygen will be additional. Airfare is not included. I don't have firm pricing at this time but should be under $2000 from LAX or SFO.

To book your spot a $1000 deposit is required.
