Truk Blue Lagoon Resort
About the country
Micronesia is located in the southwestern part of the Pacific ocean, Yap and Chuuk Lagoon for unforgettable dive adventure.
The Micronesian Federation is an independent sovereign islandation located in the western Pacific North of Papua New Guinea. Micronesia consists of four states, Yap, Chuuk (Truk Lagoon), Pohnpei and Kosrae.
Yap: Yap is located just north of the equator and offers tropical, warm and comfortable climate all the year round. The visitors to Yap are mainly divers who comes to see the famous dive sites of Yap and its many Manta Rays.
Truk Lagoon: Or Chuuk Lagoon, as it is now called, is undoubtedly the ultimate dive destination for wreck enthusiasts. With over 60 shipwrecks and 250 aircraft wrecks, Truk Lagoon can be described simply as a paradise for the wreck diver. The calm, clear, protective lagoon is one of the largest in the world and is relatively free of currents. This contributes to safe and easy diving and makes the area very suitable for beginners as well as more experienced divers. Nowhere else in the world are so many historical wrecks in one place, on so shallow and clear water. Many of the wrecks are visible even for snorkelers.
