Familiar to many divers as the "Lagoon of Lost Ships" in the Jaques-Yves Cousteau documentary of the same name, Chuuk Lagoon is the greatest wreck-diving location on Earth.

On February of 1944, American forces sank 44 Japanese war and merchant ships in Chuuk Lagoon during Operation Hailstorm. Today, most of those ships lie in calm water accessible at recreational diving depths. Many still exhibit Imperial Japanese artifacts, while others are draped in colorful soft coral as the reef overtakes them. As the ships begin to disintegrate, the time to dive them is now.

Come explore this amazing lagoon with other Scubameat divers, and experience World War II history before it is gone forever!
