Truk Lagoon is a wreck diving paradise, surrounded by thousands of islands and an inviting aquamarine sea. It is the lagoon's historic role in the Second World War that has propelled the tiny state of Truk into diving legend. Beneath the waters lies the wrecks of the Japanese Imperial fleet - this is pristine wreck diving, smothered in marine life at recreational and technical depths. And there is no friendlier place to enjoy all of that wreck diving than from the family run Truk Stop hotel and with the expert guidance from the Truk Lagoon Dive Centre. The Truk Stop hotel has a room to suit everyone, for all occasions. There are 23 spacious rooms, all with ensuite bathroom, private balcony, air con, fridge, TV and DVD. There are 4 room grades to suit al budgets from the 13 standard rooms and 6 ocean view rooms right up to the 2 Executive and 2 Presidential suites. On site at the Truk Stop hotel you will also find the restaurant and Hard Wreck cafe. Stop at the bakery for a tasty and freshly cooked treat in between dives. The Body Shop offers massages and spa treatments if you have any aches and pains. And the Hard Wreck doubles up as a bar and hub of activity when the diving day is done. Tear yourself away from the diving for a morning or afternoon for a tour around Weno island. This is a must do and takes in remarkable sites such as the old Japanese command centre and really brings home the historic story of Truk, mirrored by all those wrecks below the surface.

We had a fabulous stay at the Truk Stop Hotel. The dive center rocks and Cindy and Rob are awesome. They are both so knowledgeable about the wrecks and the history of Chuuk, Truk Lagoon and Operation Hailstone. We really enjoyed diving with them and just chatting about their experiences. Add a few Brits to the mix and there was much hilarity to be had. Everyone there is so friendly and helpful and our stay was truly memorable. Craig and Beth
Its not often a holiday meets ones expectations, but this one really did. From the hotel, its staff and all the hard working dive staff, all our needs were met with a smiling face and friendly service. The only problem I have with the Truk Stop Hotel is the massive, 8,500 miles distance separating it from my home; otherwise I would be there every weekend!!! Andy
We were really impressed with your operation. The orientation was the most substantial I've ever been given. It showed the big picture of the Lagoon and its significance in history. It also was very clear about what to do and expect the next day. The diving was amazing. A real effort was made to show a wide variety of sites, plus you took time to do side trips to see dolphins, etc. I also really appreciated your technical skills and willingness to share that information. You guys just seemed engaged in our experience. Overall, we had the best time of our trip at Chuuk, despite its reputation. Thanks for all your professionalism and patience. Chris and Sheila
This is a first rate organization for your diving needs. Both Cindy and Rob are real professionals and know their business. The locals working directly under them are also first rate. I would like to mention two individuals you will want helping you: Nuwa and Wildon. Richard
Absolutely wonderful!! We were completely spoiled. Rob, Cindy, and the dive center guys made our trip!!!!!! So glad that you are CCR friendly and that you actually stock helium and sofnolime. Phyllis
Thank you so much for a wonderful time diving with you. Gwen and I did so much that we have never done before with you - and throughout felt safe and well looked after. I shall never forget my swim with the dolphins. I have never done so much decompressions diving - a new block of experience for me. I have never been so far inside wrecks before. I have never seen so many ships with such interesting features. So thanks again for taking us on these journeys. John
Fantastic experience and very relaxing at the Truk Stop. Diving organization was brilliant and the guiding really enabled the best of the wrecks to be brought out. Absolutely loved it. Kevin and Jennifer
Cindy - Many thanks to you, Rob and the rest of your team for making our dive trip an incredible experience!! I continue to talk about our trip telling all my fellow divers in the clinic that they need to go...and dive with you. I have been diving on and off for 30 yrs...and I place Truk in my top 3 dive experiences. As for any recommendations/suggestions...diving wise I wouldn't change a thing. Peter
Have to say that although this was the 4th time I have been to Truk Lagoon this was by far the best trip. Dived wrecks I had not seen before and went to places on wrecks I had not been to on previous trips. You and your dive guides and deck hands did a great job on making our dives safe, enjoyable and informative. Kevin
One of the best holidays/dives ever. Will I return? Cant wait, planning the return trip one month after leaving Jon and Michele
