“Chuuk Atoll” was the Empire of Japan’s main naval base in the South Pacific theatre during World War II.
It was the site of a major U.S. attack during Operation Hailstone in February 1944, and Operation Inmate, a small assault conducted by British and Canadian forces during June, 1945. This battle was coined “the American’s Pearl Harbor on the Japanese fleet”. Chuuk Lagoon scuba diving is best known for its 60+ World War II wrecks, which easily makes Chuuk one of the world’s best wreck diving destinations.
Due to its strategic location, Truk used to be a Japanese Naval Base during WWII. Today the shipwrecks of Chuuk Lagoon offer plentiful marine life, with many soft corals and schools of small fish. Some of the wrecks are quite deep, with the bottoms in the 100 to 150 feet range, making your knowledge and ability to dive deep a necessity.
