Scuba Diving Truk Lagoon (Chuuk Lagoon), Micronesia
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)
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.
