1st May 2015 – Jetty Dive in Truk Lagoon
After a lengthy journey Mike, Deb and the Crew arrived safely in Truk Lagoon, Micronesia.
Truk Lagoon holds an entire, WWII Japanese naval fleet, frozen in time where it sunk, following a surprise attack by US forces in February 1944. By the wars’ end more than 70 vessels lay on the lagoon floor culminating in the largest naval loss in history. Nowhere else in the world will you see so many wrecks in such close proximity.
The crew have done 4 dives since arriving in Truk and are loving the blue, 30 degree water. The recent typhoon which passed through the area knocked over a few trees but has not affected the magnificent wrecks. This is a pic of Deb amongst the coral of the Sankisan Maru.
