Dive Review of Odyssey Adventures in
Micronesia/Truk

Odyssey Adventures: "Wrecks, wrecks, and more wrecks", Nov, 2016,

by Caroline Tess, MD, US (Reviewer Reviewer 3 reports). Report 9590.

Reporter and Travel

Dive Experience 251-500 dives
Where else diving Indonesia, Philippines, Truk, Caribbean, Galapagos, Egypt, and Florida
Closest Airport Getting There It's just really far. We flew through, Tokyo, overnighted in Guam, and then continued on to Truk. It's a slog, the flights are at weird times, and you go through customs a lot. so, just prepare yourself mentally. And definitely spend a few days somewhere (tokyo, guam, truk) acclimatizing to the time difference before you get on the boat.

Comments The Odyssey is one of the best live-aboards i have ever experienced. Even though its an old boat, the owners and crew keep it in top shape and are constantly upgrading it. Our rooms were spacious, with lovely bathrooms, and a flat screen TV that came with hundreds of movies. The food was delicious, which is a real challenge given the remote location. They had tea, coffee, snacks, treats, and all you can drink alcohol available throughout the trip.

The boat for the most part stays in the lagoon, so there is limited movement, which makes the whole experience of the live aboard much more pleasant. The boat is at anchor every night, so its much easier for the light sleepers to get a full night's rest. The boat moves during breakfast, so the first dive is around 9 or 10 am.

The only drawback is that the boat has limited outdoor space to relax during downtime, so we often found ourselves hanging out in the air ... Subscribe to get the full story. For Subscribers Only  Active subscribers continue reading here
