Join Erik Payeur & Steve Philbrook on this amazing adventure diving the sunken WWII shipwrecks from the Japanese Imperial Navy in Truk Lagoon.
During World War II, Truk Lagoon was the Empire of Japan’s main base in the South Pacific theatre. Truk was a heavily fortified base for Japanese operations against Allied forces in New Guinea and the Solomon Islands, serving as the forward anchorage for the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN).
By early 1944, the U.S. forces amassed a huge armada of top line carriers, battleships, cruisers, destroyers and submarines for a major surprise sweep against Truk on February 16th, 17th and 18th. This attack, coded “Operation Hailstone”, caught the Japanese totally unaware, leading to one of the most successful U.S. engagements of WWII.
We will be staying at Blue Lagoon Resort. Blue Lagoon is a quant resort in Truk Lagoon. It still has many of the war artifacts on its premises.
