Elite Diving in Truck Lagoon

If your a fan of wreck diving. Truck Lagoon must be on your wish list of dive destintions to visit.


In April 2010, Staff and regular guest of Elite diving went to the Elite destination in the pasific ocean, to make a dream come true.

Truck Lagoon is in a very remote part of the world. It took three days travelling to arrive at our final destination.


Here you can see one of our divers trying out a gas mask for size. Also a memorial to the people who lost their lives during the attacks and sinking on the deck of Fujikawa Maru.


There are also airoplanes that were shot down. Many ships still have their telegraphs in place.


The region is surounded by tropical islands. The marine growth on the shallower wrecks is abundant,


Some wrecks lie in 60 meters and more to the sea bed. These needed technical gear to get some bottom time on them. Above, divers excelorating their decompression time by using 80% nitrox


Left: Another telegraph in a wheel house. Right: A Japanise field tank on the deck of Sanfransisco Maru.

Many of the wrecks have large guns on their bow and stern and another field tank.

A grim reminder that there were many lives lost on these casualties of world war 2.
We hope to run another trip in 2012. The approximate cost of the trip is £3100. Anyone wanting to express an interest in this trip or our Big Shark Tour to South Africa in February 2011, please contact info@elite-diving.com
