Dive and Explore Palau,
April 5-12, 2020
Familiar to many divers as the "Lagoon of Lost Ships" in the Jaques-Yves Cousteau documentary of the same name, Truk Lagoon (now known as Chuuk), is the greatest wreck-diving location on Earth.
On February of 1944, American forces sank 44 Japanese war and merchant ships in Truk Lagoon during Operation Hailstorm. Today, most of those ships lie in calm water accessible at recreational diving depths. Many still exhibit Imperial Japanese artifacts, while others are draped in colorful soft coral as the reef overtakes them. As the ships begin to disintegrate, the time to dive them is now.
Your trip leader for the week is the delightful Rhia Weinhaus from Scubameat, and you can expect a mixed group of gay men, lesbians, and a few other friends and family. Everyone is welcome.
Come explore this very special Pacific lagoon and experience World War II history before it is gone forever!

There are several ways to reach Truk Lagoon/Chuuk (TKK):
Depart North America on the morning of Friday, March 27 to arrive on Chuuk (TKK) at 9:43 pm (now Saturday, March 28 due to crossing the International Date Line) via Honolulu and Guam.
Fly via Tokyo, Osaka, Hong Kong, or Shanghai, and connect to Truk Lagoon/Chuuk via Guam that evening or the next day, depending on the flight schedule.
We're happy to recommend hotels on Guam if needed.
From Europe, some divers may find it cheaper or easier to connect via Manila on Saturday, March 28 to arrive at Truk Lagoon/Chuuk via Guam the next morning. We're happy to send the skiff in to pick you up and bring you to the boat. You will just miss a couple of dives that morning.
For a real adventure, fly to Honolulu (HNL) on March 26 or earlier. Depart Honolulu on the morning of Friday, March 27 on United's famed "Island Hopper" and arrive in Chuuk that afternoon (March 28 due to the International Date Line)
From Australia, it's a quick and easy connection in Port Moresby on Air Niugini
to Chuuk (TKK) on Saturdays. The return is on Sunday, April 5, so plan to stay one night at the comfortable and inexpensive Blue Lagoon Resort
