Known as Truk Lagoon, the Chuuk State is a series of mangrove bordered islands, 11 to be exact, in the Chuuk Lagoon. It also consists of 14 other low and outlying islands. One of the planet’s biggest enclosed bodies of water, the Truk is bordered by 225 km reef, covering over 200 sq kilometers and is home to a fleet of Japanese ships sunk in 1944. Frozen in time, the wrecks in the region are now considered an underwater museum. The wrecks are still complete with skeletons, tanks, jeeps, and sake cups still attached inside the ships themselves. Amazing corals in a scenic underwater world with different shapes and colors attract divers of all levels of experience. Large schools of tropical fishes live in the wrecks. Nowhere else in the whole planet can a diver see this many wrecks in close range with each other in a clear shallow waters. A lot of the wrecks are observable through snorkeling and many on-shore locations can be visited.
