    Zero Snorkeling

    by kenmerk Written Jul 15, 2004

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are quite a few crashed Japanese Zeros in the Lagoon, including this one, which is in about 18 feet of water just off of Eten Island.

    Makes for a great place to kill time snorkeling between dives....

    Fujikawa Maru

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the more famous wrecks in the lagoon, the Fujikawa is a 440 ft long cargo ship that sits in about 100 ft of water. Most famous probably for the Japanese zeros and aircraft parts in one of the holds.

    This is the only wreck in the lagoon that I dove more than once, (mostly to accomodate a friend who arrive a couple days after me...) and I wasn't disappointed either time...

    Fly Chuukese Airways:

    Spacious cabin seating, state of the art in flight entertainment system, (consisting of unending fish videos....), and inflight beverage/meal serivce of local cuisine... (sushi seems to be a popular choice...)

    All in all a pleasant experience. Yes, I do believe that I'd give them my patronage again.......

    I Wuz Surrounded by Sharks...

    by kenmerk Updated Jul 15, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After trying a reef dive for a little variety on one of the reefs in the lagoon, I soon found that Chuuk is not just for wreck diving.

    The locals spear fish out here, and so the reef sharks are conditioned to challenge divers for the catch.

    I've seen a few sharks in other places, but this is the first place I've been where they are swarming and in your face looking for something to nibble on.... Id guess there were 30-50 gray and black tipped reef sharks patrolling around us at one point...

    Exhilerating,,, and then some...

    Tank on the Nippo Maru...

    by kenmerk Updated Jul 21, 2004

    The tank on the deck of the Nippo Maru is one of the easier ones to reach (115 deep). Others include three on the deck of the San Francisco Maru. (about 130 feet deep)

    Antique place settings, party of eight: Some of the fine Chinaware from the Imperial days on display in the dark silty galley of the ship.

    Nippo Maru

    The Nippo Maru is still in good condition, but makes for a deep dive. Note the artillery pieces and tank on the deck of the ship, which sits at about 115 feet.
