There is no doubt about it - Truk is best seen from a liveaboard. To have the freedom to roam from wreck to wreck is a privilege in this startling and beautifully remote region. And when it comes to liveaboards, the Odyssey represents the creme de la creme of what can be achieved. Standards do not get any higher and with the years of experience to draw on, you can be certain that your luxurious liveaboard will be outshone only by wreck diving that is anything but pedestrian.

Sleeping only 16 divers, Odyssey is ideal for the discerning diver that wants to get away from the masses. 6 of the cabins have been cleverly designed with a double bed for couples and a separate twin or a bunk for friends. All of the cabins have en suite and air con with great views of the aqua seas floating past. The saloon is huge with all the of latest entertainment systems in place. The dining area seats all 16 divers in total comfort, serving a varied and delicious menu of international cuisine. Upstairs the sun deck awaits and offers both sunny spots and shady corners. Photographers are also well catered for with rinse tanks and camera tables whilst divers who want to go that bit deeper can request twinsets and stages. Rebreather divers are welcome but please check if you tank requirements can be accommodated prior to travel. Odysey is now able to pump high O2 and trimix blends.

It is the gorgeous wrecks that lure divers to Truk lagoon. The loss of the Japanese imperial fleet was tragic but has gifted us an unrivaled concentration of ships. From cruisers and tankers to submarines and airplane, there are over 60 wrecks in this one small lagoon. It is no wonder that Jacques Couteau chose Truk as the wreck desitionation to show the world. Many are within recreational dive limits whilst others will suit anyone looking to explore the technical side of Truk. Spend many an hour weaving your way along the companion ways and through the holds that are packed with all kinds of army supplies. All of Truk's ghostly fleet is draped in soft corals and frequented by tropical fish a plenty alongside reef sharks and rays. Odyssey know just how to make your holiday a complete success so let this spectacular boat spoil you.

I have just returned from fantastic two weeks on Odyssey. The adventure starts with picking which route you are going to take. I chose the Tokyo route as there is one less connection than the Manila route. The Odyssey is a converted cruise ship. The cabins are all en suite and spacious. Each cabin has a DVD player and there is a DVD library. The dive deck is large with a camera table and rinse tanks. The aim is all the diving is done from the Odyssey so no getting into RIBís. There are plenty of dive guides but you can also go self-guided after the dive briefing. I would recommend taking a dive guide with you even if you are an experienced diver as they will take you to all the hidden gems that you may otherwise miss. All the staff are friendly and helpful. The food is plentiful and delicious. Truk is a long flight from anywhere on the planet, but it is worth it. Staying on the Odyssey enables you to maximise your diving time whilst there in comfort and at your own pace. Michael Southwood

Landed last Sunday at Manchester.We all had a fantastic time 'Odyssey' is a superb dive boat,with excellent crew and facilities. Singapore Traders Hotel was of a high standard and definitely value for money as was the Blue Lagoon Resort. Thank you all for your efforts in making our holiday a pleasant experience John Charles

The trip went exceedingly well - thank you very much. Flights arrived on time so the change in Tokyo was not a problem, in fact the flights were on adjacent gates so it only took a few minutes to get through security and back to the gate. And the meet and greet at Truk went with out a hitch. The boat's crew were very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Dive briefs were good, guides available when and if required or you could just do your own thing. Cabins were comfortable, food good and in plentiful supply and the routine allowed plenty of varied diving. So all in all a very pleasant and enjoyable trip. Andrew Coull

Truk Lagoon Expedition

Truk Lagoon is a magical place but hard to pinpoint on a map. Hidden away in the Pacific Truk was catapulted into dive legend by Jacques Cousteau, who was the first to show the world the incredible wreck diving that could be found...
