The 132 foot S/Y Truk Siren luxury diving liveaboard offers guests the best tec diving facilities, air conditioned cabins and outdoor dining. The dive deck is large enough to have individual set up stations, and big enough for large tec dive setups. Built by divers for divers, the S/Y Truk Siren is a modern and spacious diving liveaboard.
Truk is a wreck diver’s paradise, suitable for both novice and experienced divers. The calm, clear, sheltered lagoon is relatively free from currents, providing safe, easy diving conditions. Many ships of war rest here among bombs, torpedoes, guns, tanks, planes, telegraphs, bicycles, shoes, trucks, and giant warheads.
Divers can swim across decks littered with gas masks and depth charges, and below deck can be found evidence of human remains, in what some call the Ghost Fleet of Truk Lagoon. In the massive ships’ holds are the remnants of fighter aircrafts, tanks, bulldozers, railroad cars, motorcycles, boxes of munitions, radios, plus thousands of other weapons, spare parts, and other artifacts.
Expedition Hollis: Truk Lagoon is the first unique dive experience where you get to try the newest Hollis gear, while diving in a wreck diver’s paradise aboard a luxury diving liveaboard. It is expected to be the first in a series of Hollis Expeditions.
