  • Location:Giant Stride Dive Shop
  • Length:All Day

This trip is temporarily on hold! Get your deposits in for the trip of a Lifetime and experience the wrecks of Truk Lagoon, Even if you’re not a hardcore wreck diver these sunken ships will delight you with more color and life than you’ve ever seen on wrecks like the Heian, Yamagiri, Kansho, Amagisian, Seiko, Nippo, & Fujikawa all having the suffix of “Maru” meaning to return Home as most of these were  merchant ships converted to war machines. To see them now with marine life coating them in beauty and color we are priveliged to witness their splendor and not their wrath. The reason all these ships are in this one Lagoon area is this was our response to the Japanese attack in Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 ….we called it Operation Hailstone and it commenced February 17 & 18 1944 sinking more than 40 ships and 250 warplanes of the Japanese fleet. https://www.bluelagoondiveresort.com/truk-lagoon-history.html In Palau enjoy tons of pelagic fish on sites like Chandelier Cave, Virgin Hole, German Channel, Blue Corner and Jellyfish Lake. http://www.samstours.com/palau-diving/diving-with-sams-tours
