The best way to experience Chuuk Lagoon is by liveaboard, and The Odyssey is the finest liveaboard in the area.
Louisa is here to help give you the inside track.
It is our aim to find the best possible way to experience each of our diving destinations and when it comes to Chuuk Lagoon we believe we have found it: The Odyssey liveaboard dive boat.
The Odyssey liveaboard boasts 40 metres in length with a maximum of only 16 people so this is an extremely comfortable dive boat from which to explore the waters of Chuuk Lagoon. There are nine staterooms, two singles and the rest doubles which can have either king or twin beds and are extremely comfortable. All the staterooms have en-suite bathrooms, air-conditioning and TVs with DVD players.
The large dining area has several tables and is a great place to socialise with other guests and exchange diving stories. The food is very good with a range of cuisine from Asian to classic American dishes. In front of the dining area the sundeck with comfortable sun loungers makes for the perfect place to relax between dives or indeed enjoy a beer in the evening following an extraordinary day of wreck diving.
The dive operation is absolutely first class, from the detailed dive briefings of each wreck where you get a really good idea of its history to the dive guides who know the wrecks inch by inch to the dive facilities themselves. The diving schedule is flexible so you can dive as and when you choose, usually four dives a day, which often means divers are staggered so you may find you have 150m of wreck just for you and the dive guide.
The Odyssey liveaboard is run with such expertise and a wealth of knowledge that this really is the best way to experience the magnificence of Chuuk Lagoon.
Why we love it
We believe the Odyssey liveaboard dive boat is the best way to experience the world's top wreck diving destination.
