TRUK LAGOON CHUCK, MICRONESIA

The following is a sample itinerary of dive sites we may visit during your liveaboard safari with the Siren Fleet in Chuuk. We wish to show you the very best diving possible but a number of factors can determine where we visit. Weather, tides, currents and how busy a site is with other dive vessels all play a part in the Cruise Director’s decision of which route the yacht takes. Whilst we attempt to ensure the number of dives we have scheduled is fulfilled, bad weather can hinder the yacht’s ability to reach a specified dive site in good time. The safety of all on board is paramount and we always do our best in offering diving at alternate locations should we be unable to visit those sites listed below.

Your Cruise Director will schedule up to 4 dives per day; 3 day dives and either a sunset or a night dive. The diving day has a typical schedule as follows:

  • Light Breakfast followed by a briefing & Dive 1
  • Full Breakfast, relaxation followed by briefing & Dive 2 Lunch, relaxation followed by briefing & Dive 3
  • Snack
  • Briefing for Sunset or Night dive Dinner

For your final day aboard we schedule 2 morning dives to allow plenty of time for off- gassing before disembarkation and your flight home. The Cruise Director is happy to listen to requests from guests to visit or remain at certain sites and providing it is possible and the schedule allows, then guest’s requests are respected.

TRUK LAGOON

After WWI, Japan was given control of Truk (Chuuk) and fortified the lagoon into becoming one of their largest naval bases. It was from here that the Japanese fleet launched their attack on the US’ Pearl Harbor in 1941. The ensuing retaliation of “Operation Hailstorm” in 1944 resulted in the loss of 61 ships, mostly “Maru” or merchant vessels which had been left at anchor whilst some 200 other vessels were safely evacuated to Palau. The result has been a collection of shipwrecks of closely packed into a coral lagoon, many of which are with easy reach of recreational divers.

 Over the course of our liveaboard safari we will explore many of these wreckages whilst on 10-night trips we also explore the reefs of the outer lagoon.

 

Sites we visit include but are not limited to:-

Fujikawa Maru – a signature dive of Truk Lagoon, this 132m (436ft) armed cargo ship sits perfectly upright on the sandy bottom at a depth of 34m (120ft) whilst the forward king post reaches up to 5m(15ft). The “Fuji” offers 6 holds, 4 of which are open, in which can be found parts of Zero Fighter Aircraft from engine parts, propeller blades and fuel cells.

Deeper inside the wreckage Mitsubishi A5m Claude & A6M parts can be discovered. The bow gun is encrusted with corals and the outer wreckage supports sea fans, soft corals &

anemones. Diving the “Fuji” is suitable for divers of all levels however deeper penetration into the engine room will only be permitted to certified tec / wreck divers. Throughout the 10-night cruise we will offer several dives on this famous wreck to allow our guests to explore in full and take photographs at different times of day.

 

Fumitsuki – A 97m (300ft) long Japanese Destroyer. She sits upright in 38m (130ft) of water rising up to 21m (75ft). Covered in marine life she is a pleasure to dive.

 

Submarine 1.169 – Quickly submerging during the attack to avoid damage, the submarine unfortunately failed to close her valves, allowing for water to enter and as she descended she came to rest on her port side at a depth of 38m (140ft).

 

Yamigari Maru – Resting on her port side, though almost completely intact despite repeated bombings, the Yamigari freighter still contains many artillery shells and ammunition.

 

Shinkoku Maru – A large oil tanker, now rests upright on the bottom encrusted with corals, sponges & hydroids. From the bridge you can see into the engine room whilst the galley still holds many utensils on the large stove. Small guns, mounted fore and aft are also covered with corals making this one of the most colourful and spectacular wrecks to be found in Truk.

 

Nippo Maru – At a depth of 50m (160ft) the Nippo is an intriguing dive site best suited to

tec divers. The holds contain antitank guns and 5inch guns, mines and a tank, whilst the bridge, helm and superstructure have attracted a plethora of silver sweepers.

 

Heian Maru – The largest ship in the lagoon, the Heian, originally used as a cargo ship, is 165m (510ft) in length and lies on her port side in 34m (150ft) of water. Within her holds diver may find torpedoes, shells and even the occasional periscope.

 

Susuki Destroyer – best known for its engine room, this patrol boat once boasted an array of gas masks and other fascinating artifacts, many of which have since been removed. However some can still be found scattered about the deck and it remains a stunning wreck dive site. The bow is in just 3m (10ft) of water, shallow enough to see whilst snorkeling, with the stern propeller at 15m (50ft).

 

San Francisco Maru – The passenger & cargo ship, weighing 5,831 tons, lays upright at a depth of 63m (195ft). Here divers can see the remains of many well preserved war-relics including three large tanks which rest on the deck at between 46-55m (150-175ft).

 

Hoki Maru – This 30m (100ft) long freighter lies upright from 53m (160ft) and is only partially intact. The aft hold carries trucks and road supplies whilst sake bottles can be found here too. The superstructure is awe-inspiring and covered with brightly coloured sponges.

 

Gosei Maru – A submarine tender carrying torpedoes starts in just 3m (10ft) and drops to 33m (120ft) within which can be found many personal artifacts, serving as a reminder of those who lost their lives during the battle.

 

Rio de Janeiro Maru- 140m (430ft) long she lays on her port side in 34m (120ft). Once a luxury passenger vessel she was converted to a cargo vessel in wartime. Exploration of her holds turns up a range of supplies from beer bottles to guns. The upper deck reaches to an easily diveable depth of 10m (30ft).

 

Betty Bomber – a long –range aircraft lies on the seabed at 20m (80ft) and is

surrounded by schooling fish.

 

Shark Island – possibly the most famous reef dive in Truk, is a fantastic cleaning station for reef sharks and at just 18m (60ft) is perfect for some “off-gassing” in the afternoon after a morning of wreck diving.

 

The majority of shipwrecks within Truk Lagoon are deemed suitable for recreational divers and offer varying depths for multi-level profiles. Some sites do however lie beyond, or have interesting features deeper than, the recognised recreational diving depth limit of 40m (130ft). As such they maybe more suited to divers with deep diver or technical diving qualifications.

Our Cruise Director and dive guides will offer guided dives, with simple wreck penetration, within the bounds of their own training and experience. Prior to each dive our guides will give an in-depth briefing for all our guests which will include a detailed site map with entries/exits, points of interest, hazardous objects and special considerations for the dive to enable you to plan appropriately.

Guests are responsible for their own dive profiles and for obtaining suitable dive insurance to cover deeper diving. We respectfully request our divers stay within the bounds of their training, follow dive computer guidelines and make decompression stops where necessary. When planning deep dives or dives with extended bottom times, please bear in mind that re-compression facilities in the region are limited, therefore we recommend you dive conservatively.

 

The S/Y Truk Siren provides equipment and facilities for deep, technical and rebreather diving with a “Deco-bar” situated under the yacht for your convenience. All divers who wish to go beyond recognised recreational depth limits, plan to make deep wreck penetration or decompression dives must show proof of qualification and experience upon boarding and will be requested to sign an additional liability waiver.

TRUK LAGOON DIVE SITES

TRUK LAGOON DIVE SITE INFORMATION

Fujikawa Maru The armed cargo ship rests upright on the sandy bottom at 34m (110ft), rising up to 5m (15ft). She is one of the largest vessels at over 130m (430ft) in length giving plenty to explore, decks are encrusted with corals as are her guns on the aft deck. Whilst 6 holds contain a plethora of artifacts from the war, including Mitsubushi aircraft wings and Zero fighter propeller blades.

 

Fumitsuki the Japanese destroyer sits upright in 38m (130ft) of water and is covered with corals attracted a wide variety of marine life. Her upper deck is at 21m (80ft) allowing recreational divers of advanced level plenty of opportunity to explore the wreckage.

 

Shinkoku Maru – A large oil tanker, now rests upright on the bottom encrusted with corals, sponges & hydroids. From the bridge you can see into the engine room whilst the galley still holds many utensils on the large stove. Small guns, mounted fore and aft are also covered with corals making this one of the most colourful and spectacular wrecks to be found in Truk.

 

TRUK 2009 UW - NIPPO MARU - 017Nippo Maru Lying at a depth of 50m (150ft) this site is best suited to tec divers, providing plenty to explore within the wreckage and without including antitank guns and mines, and a tank (pictured left). The bridge, helm and superstructure remain chiefly in tact and provide a good place to off-gas whilst watching the glassy sweepers that congregate there.

 

Heian Maru – The largest ship in the lagoon, the Heian, originally used as a cargo ship, is 165m (510ft) in length and lies on her port side in 34m (150ft) of water. Within her holds diver may find torpedoes, shells and even the occasional periscope.

 

Susuki Destroyer – best known for its engine room, this patrol boat once boasted an array of gas masks and other fascinating artifacts, many of which have since been removed. However some can still be found scattered about the deck and it remains a stunning wreck dive site. The bow is in just 3m (10ft) of water, shallow enough to see whilst snorkeling, with the stern propeller at 15m (50ft).

 

TRUK 2012 SAN FRANZISCO MARU 021San Francisco Maru – The passenger & cargo ship, weighing 5,831 tons, lays upright at a depth of 63m (195ft). Here divers can see the remains of many well preserved war-relics including three large tanks which rest on the deck at between 46-55m (150-175ft).

 

Gosei Maru – A submarine tender carrying torpedoes starts in just 3m (10ft) and drops to 33m (120ft) within which can be found many personal artifacts, serving as a reminder of those who lost their lives during the battle.

 

Rio de Janeiro Maru lies on her port side at a depth of 34m (110ft) with holds containing numerous artifacts from bottles to guns. Once a luxury passenger vessel she was converted to a cargo carrier for wartime and now provides divers with an easy exploration both inside and out.

 

Shark Island – possibly the most famous reef dive in Truk, is a fantastic cleaning station for reef sharks and at just 18m (60ft) is perfect for some “off-gassing” in the afternoon after a morning of wreck diving
