Truk Stop Hotel, Chuuk

Truk Stop Hotel

Less than a mile from the International Airport and a short 10-minute walk from town, this resort sits on the edge of the world famous Truk Lagoon and offers guests a range of accommodations, an excellent restaurant, and a first-class, full-service dive centre.

World renowned diving
On February 17–18, 1944, the U.S. military launched Operation Hailstone on the Japanese fleet anchored in Truk Lagoon which became home to the greatest concentration of sunken ships anywhere in the world. Over 65 warships, all accessible to the recreational, sport and technical diver, rest on the lagoon floor and make Truk Lagoon the world’s greatest wreck diving destination.

Chuuk also offers a rich and colourful history, a dynamic culture and a warm, island hospitality to the visiting traveller.

The Truk Lagoon Dive Center offers a professional and well-equipped dive shop that supports all levels of divers with their choice of air, nitrox, or tri-mix, and is the only dive shop on the island with certified instructors.

TLDC is affiliated with DAN, TDI, and PADI and quality rental gear is available as well as private dive lockers, large rinse tanks, and shower.

Divers can enjoy up to four guided dives a day, and can choose to explore cargo holds that still contain airplane parts, vehicles, tanks, ammunition, bottles and other remnants on sunken warships, plus dive with sharks, or enjoy a night dive.
