Truk Lagoon, Chuuk

Known for its sunken shipwreck, Truk Lagoon represents one of Micronesia's top scuba diving spots. Thanks to the lagoon's status as a nationally protected historical site, the shipwreck remains largely untouched. Sunk during a World War II battle, the ship lies in relatively shallow water, a perfect depth for avid scuba enthusiasts. Expert local guides lead wreck dives, ensuring a comfortable and safe experience for all participants regardless of skill level. If you get tired of diving, take in the sun and scenery from the comfort of the lagoon's sandy beach. Our Chuuk road trip planner makes visiting Truk Lagoon and other Chuuk attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
