Shipwrecks
Lying at the bottom of the lagoon is the world's largest collection of intact shipwrecks from World War 2. No other place on earth has as many wrecks that are so large and well preserved. These ships are 60 – 150m in length and they lie on the bottom like toppled skyscrapers, now overgrown with marine life. 35 of the 50 wrecks have been discovered and explored and are still very much intact.

The warm tropical waters of Truk Lagoon are nutrient rich and constantly stirred by currents. As a result of 49 years of submersion, these wrecks have been transformed into magnificent artificial reefs. Their decks are covered with a festive array of brilliantly coloured soft corals, sponges and other delicate marine life

Plane Wrecks
Truk Lagoon is by no means limited to just sunken ships, there are numerous warplanes sitting on the bottom lying in comparatively shallow depths, ideal for shallow dives later in the day.
