About Truk Lagoon (Chuuk)

The Pacific Ocean is a dream destination for many divers. The name alone gives us fantasies about endless days of sunshine and the blue horizon that infinitely stretches along the ocean. But it is not just the Pacific Ocean life that attracts us to this destination. Paradise is mainly below the surface, where an incredibly beautiful world is hiding.

Truk Lagoon is located in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. It is a mythical lagoon and a paradise for wreck divers, with over 60 shipwrecks and 250 aircraft resting on the bottom here. Chuuk - formerly called Truk or Truk Lagoon is one of four states that together constitute the federal state of Micronesia.
