Must see · Water Body · Nature / Park
Known for its sunken shipwreck, Truk Lagoon represents one of Micronesia's top scuba diving spots. Thanks to the lagoon's status as a nationally protected historical site, the shipwreck remains largely untouched. Sunk during a World War II battle, the ship lies in relatively shallow water, a perfect depth for avid scuba enthusiasts. Expert local guides lead wreck dives, ensuring a comfortable and safe experience for all participants regardless of skill level. If you get tired of diving, take in the sun and scenery from the comfort of the lagoon's sandy beach. Our Chuuk road trip planner makes visiting Truk Lagoon and other Chuuk attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • If you like wreck diving, this is the greatest place on earth. Sure there are amazing wrecks sites around the world and you can travel a long ways to dive one of those wrecks. But here there are 40 or more wrecks in one location. At least 15 or more accessible to recreational divers.
  • I have nothing but Respect for Those Who Went Befoe Me. Without GOD and Them I am Nothing. My Uncle Victor Went Through 4 Major Battles in WII., (ie; Iwo Jima, Philippines, Okinawa and New Calidonia. Too bad those liberal freaks don't realize this. This Sould Be Truk Lagoon not Chuuk.
