A Diver's Only WWI Museum

Only did the 7 day Truk Lagoon itinerary but still was able to truly appreciate the wreck diving. Each of these wrecks is essentially a divers-only museum of ships and their cargo leftover from WWII. You can find some pretty amazing artifacts from live torpedos, machine gun bullets, zero fighter parts, tanks, ship telegraphs, and medical kits scattered throughout these wrecks. You can also explore the engine rooms of many of these wrecks which itself is a unique aspect of diving here. The crew on board the Truk Master is quite friendly. The dive guides in particular are incredibly experienced and well-trained. I don't think I've ever had as many very experienced dive guides on a liveaboard before. These guides know all of the wrecks inside and out which is pretty important when you're doing wreck penetration. The food could have been better but let's be real, food isn't the most important part of the liveaboard. The boat is a good size so you can avoid people when you want and find people in the common spaces when you do want to hang out.

Great diving, good boat with lack of service

This was a bucket list destination for me as it is for most divers. I was happy with the quality of diving despite the constant rain. I was disappointed to see the boat had only one dive guide for 16 divers and a cruise director, who was trying to wear many hats and liked to say "No". The food was substandard with basically the same things being served and they had no diet drink available. Every drink was loaded with sugar. Unless the company pays serious attention to the service component of the business they are in, I don't see this boat operating too long. I am grateful for the experience and hope to return back to Truk Lagoon but definitely not on Truk Master.

Clean, comfortable, spacious cabin 6

Heian wreck, kinokuniya wreck (I forgot the actual name), eagle rays, sharks. The crew (Elaine) prepared warm drinking water for me before each dive although did not ask for it. She observed that I did not drink the standard cold water and that I would drink warm water in the dining room. Dive guide took good care of me and ensured that I got out of the wrecks safely.

Comfortable and clean

Good dive guide made sure everyone got out safely from engine rooms of the wrecks. Crew helped to wash and hang wetsuit after each dive. Also washed and hung gear at end of trip.
