Scuba Diving Truk Lagoon (Chuuk Lagoon), Micronesia

Reader Reviews:

Dive Site: Aikoku Maru

Location: Near Tonoas, Chuuk Lagoon

Description: 10,437 ton armed merchant cruiser

Length: 150 metres (498 feet)

Depth: Max depth 64 metres (210 feet), 49 metres (160 feet) to deck, 40 metres (130 feet) to top of wreck

Visibility: 20 metres (65 feet)

Rating: *****

An awesome dive! I dropped straight into hold 4 and down between decks to the bottom of the wreck. There were piles of skulls and bones partially buried in the silt which looked very surreal in the torch beam. I headed out past the communal baths. The bridge is broken up and the funnel is missing.
