Information About Truk

 

Truk Lagoon

Chuuk Atoll, (also Known as Truk) in the Caroline Islands is infamous for its giant lagoon. The lagoon is the final resting place for more than 100 ships, planes and submarines. The majority of these wrecks are the legacy of a fierce World War II battle between the Imperial Japanese Fleet and Allied carrier planes resulting in the largest navel loss in history.

Cargoes of tanks, trucks, airplanes, mines, bombs, machine gun bullets and thousands of other artefacts including beautiful china are there still to be explored.

 Nowhere else in the world are there so many wrecks in close proximity, situated in shallow clear water. The tropical waters and prolific marine life has transformed these wrecks into artificial reefs and beautiful coral gardens.
