A wreck diver / photographer's paradise for historical shipwrecks.
Shore based facilities provided ample power for recharging lights and
batteries.  A power strip is handy to set up a camera table in your room.

Truk Lagoon has some of the best wreck diving in the world. This was our
fourth trip to Truk and we spent two weeks diving.  The guides were, as
always, accommodating and assisted us so were were able to dive many of the
wrecks we had not previously visited.  Blue Lagoon Divers has oxygen
available and can mix nitrox, trimix and fill stage bottles with advance
notice.  The shop and staff were always willing to go the extra mile,
including providing additional guides for trips to ships which were
significant distances from Weno Island. We set up our doubles the first day
and the boat crew set them up each day thereafter.  Gear can be rinsed at
the dock and stored in small concrete lockers nearby.  

The dive shop is on the hotel grounds and most surface intervals are spent
back at the hotel if desired. (I loved the ocean side hammocks).

We brought our own isolation manifolds and bands to set up double tank
rigs.  Next trip we will also bring stage bottle harness rigs and a
equalizer whip.  We normally made two dives on one set of tanks, but
topping off from a single tank on the boat would have allowed us to make
longer deep dives.

Diving the shipwrecks of Truk Lagoon is a must for anyone interested in
history.  The artifacts are protected, (although some divers do not respect
that rule)and swimming through the ships is a wreck lover's dream.  The
shallower wrecks have amazing soft coral growth; in some cases, such as the
Shinkoku Maru, it's hard to remember you are on a ship.  

The coconut palm-studded hotel grounds include the island's best beaches
and sunset views. 

Photos of our trip are located in the Truk Section of the "Shipwreck
Museum" at [ link] .
