Welcome to Chuuk located in the Pacific Ocean in Micronesia about halfway between Honolulu and Manila Philippines. Better known by its wartime name Truk, the lagoon is world renowned for its wreck diving. Chuuk is one of four island states that make up the Federated States of Micronesia which consist of some 600 tiny islands and atolls that stretch almost the entire width of Micronesia, 1,800 miles across the Pacific Ocean. Divers come from all over the world, flying into the Chuuk International Airport to arrive at this wreck diving location that s on the wish list of most wreck divers today. Here you can experience first hand the underwater museum, graveyard and the many tombs which have been softened by time and nature into beautiful living reefs.
