All Day

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.
