Diving in Truk Lagoon

We have just been on an amazing dive trip to Chuuk Lagoon (formerly known as Truk lagoon) in the Federate states of Micronesia. I can highly recommend this for anyone interesting in diving!!

During the second world war the lagoon was one of the mane anchorage base for the Japanese imperial fleet. In 1944 the Americans attacked the Japanese fleet in what was called the Operation Hailstone, and sunk a considerate amount of war and merchant ships and over 200 planes. These wrecks are what we went diving on.

This will be a picture galore, so huddle up with a cup of coffee or tea, and enjoy! All pictures taken by my husband, me or our travel and diving buddies John Cairns and Kim Sow.
