Diving in Truk Lagoon

Paradise for scuba diving the Truk Lagoon is a sheltered body of water in the central Pacific. About 1800 km north-east of New Guinea, it is located mid-ocean at 7 degrees North latitude, and is part of Chuuk State within the Federated States of Micronesia.

It became famous after being used as the main base for Japan during the World War II. At that time, many ships sunk and made a true paradise underwater.

Ghostly remains of a past time became known in 1969 as William A. Brown and French oceanographer Jacques Cousteau and his team explored Truk Lagoon and decided to make a TV documentary of it in 1971.

Now, enthusiasts from around the world go to Truk Lagoon to see its numerous, virtually intact sunken ships, known as the “Ghost Fleet of Truk Lagoon”.
