Truk Lagoon Wrecks - The Deepest Biggest & Most Popular Wrecks

The above Truk Lagoon map is a bit busy. This is unavoidable simply because there are so many wrecks in Truk Lagoon. This is why this Mecca for wreck diving is so popular with wreck divers.

The Truk Lagoon wrecks are mostly concentrated around Fefen, Urman and Tonoas (Dublon) Islands of Chuuk. Despite the close proximity to the Islands and the fact that these wrecks are in a lagoon, the majority of them are deep wrecks (where deep is greater than 30 metres (100 feet).

Many of the deeper wrecks of Truk Lagoon are 40 plus, 50 plus and even 60 plus metres deep.

There’s no place in the world where there are so many great wrecks all in one place and situated in such close proximity to each other. You are simply spoilt for choice.

The location of the two land-based resorts and dive shops are also marked on the map. These are both on Moen Island. To get to Moen Island you fly into Chuuk airport.

However, if you’re considering a liveaboard trip to Truk Lagoon, you will still fly into Chuuk Airport, but then you’ll be transferred from Moen Island to your chosen liveaboard boat.
