Scuba Diving Truk Lagoon (Chuuk Lagoon), Micronesia

Reader Reviews:

Dive Site: Kansho Maru

Location: Between Fefan, Tonoas and Weno, Chuuk Lagoon

Description: 4,862 ton passenger / cargo ship

Length: 116 metres (384 feet)

Depth: Max depth 35 metres (130 feet), 24 metres (80 feet) to deck, 18 metres (60 feet) to top of wreck

Rating: *****

The Kansho Maru is a very intact wreck. I headed into the bridge area where there was the captain's wheel and telegraph at a slight angle, the toilets and the spacious engine room. At the bow the derricks are all intact. I ended the dive on the coral covered masts.
