The 75th Anniversary of Operation Hailstorm
Dive the World War II Japanese Wrecks
Here’s your chance to dive the famous World War II Japanese wrecks of Truk Lagoon for two week June 22nd through July 6th 2019 onboard the Odyssey. Don’t put off diving the wrecks of Truk Lagoon as time is taking it’s toll on the wrecks.
Contrary to the misconception that the wrecks of Truk Lagoon are deep, the majority of them rest in less than 130 ft. of water making it possible to reach the deck without exceeding a depth of 100 ft. The superstructures are as shallow as 30 ft. with some of the King Posts, which are completely overgrown with marine life, coming within 7 ft. of the surface. Photographers have been known to do a whole dive photographing the life on the King Post of the Fujikawa Maru and not go below 40 ft.
We will be diving some of the deeper wrecks. A minimum certification level of Advanced Enriched Air or equal is needed to dive the wrecks.
A typical day of diving is 2 morning dives, 2 afternoon dives and a night dive (a dawn dive can sometimes be done).
The two week trip is $5,600 and includes two weeks onboard the Odyssey which has been rated by Rodale’s as the best live-aboard in the world; Enriched Air (Nitrox) for those certified to use Enriched Air; Chuuk taxes, dive permit, transfers and a day room (double occupancy) at the Blue Lagoon on July 6th. Oxygen used to produce gas blends greater than 30% oxygen will be additional. Airfare is not included; at this time from LAX or SFO about $2,200.
To book your spot a $1,000 deposit is required. As always spaces will be filled on as deposit received basis.
