Diving awesome Truk Lagoon...unequaled in global wreck dive sites and aquatic life recreating so much life over the ruins of a World War 2 battle support fleet. Waters and air at equal temps ceates so comfortable dive conditions, in relatively clear waters.
Diving continuously on a 24/7/30 basis from moorings within sheltered central wreck anchorages, Thorfinn divers move quickly to adjacent wreck and reef sites by speedy ‘state of art’ 300hp twin engined 32 ft. launches assuring maximum varieties in quality wreck and reef sites at Truk Lagoon. Featuring up to 5 different daily sites, small groups enjoy fine views and penetrations… free of other divers at singly moored locations. By avoiding single site moorings with limited selections, Thorfinn divers enjoy fine views of up to 30 appealing sites during 7 continuous dive days aboard, with experienced guides on every dive, each leading small parties of 4-6 divers safely to the best below.
This system provides the most for every budget, as knowing divers quickly appreciate after sampling differences in cost and product delivered.
Personal facilities and great food are just minutes from each dive site, avoiding long rides to distant shore facilities, or tossing at exposed anchorages aboard lighter dive vessels lacking the size and stability of this 1,100 ton ship.
Safe diving profiles follow long established rules producing one of today’s most admirable dive safety records. Full safety gear aboard launches and ship assist in maintaining this record..
