Join Immersed Imaging as we dive the superb wrecks of the Japanese WWII fleet which lie in a variety of depths within world-famous Truk Lagoon. Our 7-night workshop will allow you to explore not only many of the famous wrecks but experience some superb reef diving as well. Many of the wrecks are “Maru” or merchant vessels that had been left at anchor. Some had been fortified with anti-aircraft weapons and many carried important army supplies including Zero Fighter aircraft parts, tanks, torpedo shells, and road supplies. Bottles, cooking utensils, items from everyday life, and personal artifacts can be found in several of the wrecks, serving as a reminder of those who lost their lives during battle. There are numerous channels that cut through the reef which serve as hunting grounds for reef sharks and schooling pelagics, which all add to the wonder of diving Truk. And of course, Todd and Michael will be onboard to assist you with any imaging needs you may have, including private tutoring and workshops at no additional cost!
Departing from Weno, our 7-night expedition on the Truk Master will take you directly to the main concentration of wrecks lying within the bay. The Truk Master will moor over the deeper wrecks, allowing you to descend easily down the line directly to the wreck.
This 7-night charter, limited to just 16 divers, starts at 3,195 USD† per person (one (1) Deluxe cabin available at 3,395 USD/pp) and includes the following:

We strongly advise that our guests plan to stay in Truk one night before and also preferably one night after their cruise. We find that this reduces potential problems created by delays and schedule changes in international flights. It also allows our guests to begin their cruise rested and relaxed.

Disembarkation at the end of the cruise will be just before 10am. All flights to Chuuk International Airport (TKK) require transit via Guam, United States.
