Shipwrecks of Truk Lagoon

Truk is known as one of the best wreck diving destinations on the Planet. During WWII it was Japans main base in the South Pacific theater. In February 1944 American forces attacked for 3 days destroying 12 warships, 32 merchant ships and 275 aircraft. Many of the shipwrecks are in recreational depths with so much to take in from bombs, torpedos, ammo, trucks, tanks, aviation parts, gas masks, planes and many human remains.  The wrecks are covered in colorful soft corals and marine life which makes them even more stunning.

Becky will take you on a photographic journey showcasing some of the most spectacular wrecks from the Rio de Janeiro Maru, Nippo Maru, San Francisco Maru to the IJN Oite.  Truk is considered the biggest underwater shipwreck graveyard in the world with so much to see it’s worthy of several trips.  The journey will take you deep into the depths to illuminate these ships in new ways while sharing their stories that can inspire both divers and non divers to explore the past.
