This trip was all about the wrecks for us, and did the Odyssey ever
deliver. Absolutely incredible wreck diving. Truk has the sites and the
Odyssey gets you to the ones you want with a professionalism and style
you'll love. Lenny & Cara have put together a wonderful operation. Best
dive briefings we've ever heard. Of the four live aboards we've done, this
is in a class of it's own. The guides (Davey, Madison, and Matt) will lead
you through the wreck interiors and engine rooms on a tour designed for
your comfort level. In addition to he aluminum 80's, the available 112
cubic foot steel tanks (din or yoke) and twins come in air or 30% Nitrox
(included at no extra charge), allow for extended bottom times. They also
hang a tank from the safety stop bar. This one was so good it inspired our
first reader report in over three years and twelve trips as an Undercurrent
