Liveaboard anchored, but great diving

We were really disappointed this liveaboard was anchored, as we could see the other liveaboard moving around the lagoon. We took boats out to dive sites and likely saw as much as they did...we just never had a change of scenery from the boat. Great (deep!) diving, healthy coral/sea life and great food!

The place to go for wreck diving

I stayed on the boat for 8 days diving 4 wrecks every day, and when I left there were still many we had not seen, I was Tech diving but other diver where mostly recreational level, the wreck are at all depth so OK for all diver but some of the deeper ones were 60+ m so having deco cylinder helped reduce the deco times. The boat was moored while we were on it, which worked well as she is mored close to the main wreck and has fast Dive boat to take you to the dive site, we were comfortably doing 4 dived per day with meals or snack waiting between dives. The captin Lance was a working history book of the area which added to the interest

Most Amazing Diving experience ever!

I really had a great time diving the wrecks of Truk Lagoon, with experienced and friendly dive guides who would take you to the most interesting places of a wreck, with some deep wreck penetrations at times, while safely staying outside at other times. Safety is a prime concern, but so is diver's experience! It was always possible to ask for specific wreck sites, diving up to 5 different wrecks a day. Captain Lance's impressive stories collecte over 30 years through direct contact with both Japanese an American war veterans makes this experience even more unforgettable! I would definitely come back!
