TRUK
Click for Chuuk, Federated States of Micronesia Forecast

 



Chuuk, known to most divers as Truk, because of Truk Lagoon, boasts a vast, shallow, beautiful lagoon, and is a Mecca for wreck divers. Known to the world as the graveyard of the Pacific, Truk Lagoon is the final resting place of more than 70 WW II ships and hundreds of aircraft that fell to the U.S. Forces during "Operation Hailstone". Many of these wrecks rest upon the bottom with trucks, jeeps, planes and equipment they were carrying still intact. During the past 50+ years these huge artifacts of the past have become home for a profusion of soft corals and marine life.


Less dived and spectacular itself is the outer reef with peaks, caves and dropoffs with hard and soft corals in a kaleidoscope of colors and shapes. Here you can experience hundreds of species of fishes and lots of palagics.
