Liveaboard Holidays In Micronesia
Micronesia Liveaboard diving is confined to Chuuk liveaboards, or Truk Liveaboards as they are also known, without doubt the best choice of diving holidays for the wreck-heads out there. What was the world's biggest naval loss has turned out to be the diving world's gain.
The warm tropical climate and the prolific currents of Truk waters have turned the fascinating wreck yard into a stunning sight for all types of diver. Not just a breath taking treat for the underwater adventurer these giant vessels littering the seabed have become building blocks for the local ecosystem, and provide protected hides for the marine life they attract.
WHY CHOOSE A MICRONESIA LIVEABOARD
A liveaboard holiday in the Truk Islands is considered to offer the best value for keen and slightly more experienced divers, as the luxury cruise ships allow for a much greater amount of time in the water - and at more varied times in the day. With greater access to the hidden gems and most remote sites, you can see much more of the dormant battlefield – and in a ‘whole new light’ with the many night dives available on our liveaboard itineraries.
The comfortable liveaboard is also a very sociable way to dive the waters of Chuuk, providing a platform to dive from while meeting new people who share your passion for diving in ‘Truk Lagoon’.
MICRONESIA LIVEABOARD ITINERARIES
Getting in and out of Chuuk is the most complex element of any itinerary to dive Truk Lagoon. Lying within the Eastern Caroline Islands, about 1028 km southeast of Guam, which ever route you take flights arrive via Guam, 2 hours away. At Planet we have plenty of experience arranging travel to Truk which ever routing you prefer.
On arrival in Weno you'll be transfered to your liveaboard. On most boats 2 morning and 2 afternoon dives, plus the occasional night dive, are scheduled. A typical itinerary will have your liveaboard moving short distances around the lagoon to focus the days diving on one or two different wrecks each day.
Please contact us for details of specific wrecks dived for any particualr liveaboard safari. We can also combine Truk with diving in Yap or a stop over en route including various South East Asian destinations, Honolulu or in North America.
