If you "Google" "Truk Lagoon Pictures", you can see an incredibly diverse dive area; from macro magnificence to gigantic war ship wrecks. I gave up trying to copy all that I found over to our website. Check it out for yourself.
TRUK LAGOON, MICRONESIA
WHEN: FEBRUARY 03 - 11, 2007
– The world’s best shipwreck diving destination. The WW II shipwreck museum every diver dreams of seeing. We must see it now as the wrecks are disintegrating more rapidly now. Can you imagine the teaming fish, plant life and incredibly beautiful, vibrant, colorful coral formations that have developed on these wrecks over the past 60 years? We know it will be awesome. “Scuba Diving” Magazine’s Sept. 05 issue voted Truk Lagoon the number one best value dive destination in the world.
6 Nights aboard the highly acclaimed, most luxurious live-aboard dive yacht, the ODYSSEY, a 132’ air-conditioned live-aboard vessel with spacious rooms, private ensuite facilities and a large entertainment lounge.
All meals, snacks, non-alcoholic beverages AND BEER and WINE!
5 days of diving – up to 5 dives a day, weights, weight belts and tanks.
FREE NITROX (If you’ve been on other live-aboards, you know this is a huge savings.)
Customized dive vacation, depending on the skill level and interest of the 16 SWS divers. SWS will modify the itinerary to suit our needs – wreck, shark, outer reef, shallow and night divers – we are in charge, we choose!. Log on to watercolors for further details.)
** Andy is offering to do your open water requirement for the Wreck Diving Certification Class while we are on the Odyssey. You must reserve, pay and fulfill all homework requirements prior to our departure date. Contact Andy at 916/332-8294 to reserve your space and become Wreck Certified in the Wreck Diving Capital of the World!
Then, we fly to:

Take advantage of this value of a life-time negotiated by SWS 2 years ago. Keep in mind this trip is in 2007 and we are paying 2004 prices. We probably will not see a value like this any time soon with the fuel prices soaring ! Last I checked, if you booked this trip on your own, you would be paying close to $3,000 in airfare alone to get to these remote South Pacific islands.
FULL PACKAGE PRICE $6,035 (Subject to slight increase if airline increases fuel surcharge prior to ticketing.) per person double occupancy including international and
inter-island r/t ai fare from LAX, land transfers and taxes. Price is based on a group of 16.
(Solo dive travelers welcome. SWS will try to pair you up with another solo dive traveler. If we can't, the Odyssey is unique in that it has two cabins specifically designed for a single person. As long as there is availability SWS can give you one of these for a nominal fee. MRBR, of course, has a single supplement option and as long as there is availability we can arrange that for you also. Traveling alone is only until we meet up with you at LAX! After that, you are on the SWS Traveling Dive Team!)
Reservation and Payment Requirements: 16 divers only. Full payment is due into SWS no later than November 24, 2006
