Our fifth trip to Truk Lagoon, or Chuuk, was the best ever! Not only did we
have a great bunch of divers, the crew was excellent. My husband & I
were diving double tanks so we could spend more time on the wrecks; once
the crew realized how competent the whole gang were, they allowed everyone
who wanted, to do decompression dives on two of the deeper wrecks, the
Amagisan and the San Franciso. Those who didnt feel comfortable diving to
170 didnt miss any dives, thoughas soon as the deep divers were back
aboard, the Odyssey headed for a shallower site for those who sat out the
deep dive. The crew gets A+++ from us for their willingness to accommodate
us in all ways. There were five dive guides on board so everyone who wanted
a personal tour to the engine rooms was able to schedule it. The shark dive
was again well-run, and we saw some great action.

Nick, previously a dive guide/instructor on the boat is now the very
personable captain.  Guide Madison is still there as well as the cook,
Emeren, who easily accommodated food allergies and preferences. Given a
choice the last night of eating at the Blue Lagoon or leftovers on the
boat, no one would leave! Owner Lenny was on board part of the week,
working hard putting in a new water system, which worked like a
champplenty of hot water, even if you were the last one taking a
showerthanks, Lenny!

The trade winds started off strong, causing the boat to swing on its anchor
at a faster clip than normalholding onto the deco bar was quite a ride and
climbing up the ladder could be interesting. Towards the middle of the week
the winds settled down to their normal velocity.
