Although no two days aboard the Odyssey will be the same a typical day begins at 7:00 with a hot breakfast followed by a dive briefing at 7:45. You’ll have the morning to do 2 dives on the site before we move to the next site during lunch. After lunch 2 more dives are offered or you can relax on one of the sundecks or in your stateroom. Dinner is usually served around 6:30 and if you’d like you can do a night dive afterward. Often you’ll find other guests hanging out in the entertainment lounge watching a movie or checking out the footage they got on the day’s dives.

One of the best parts about diving aboard Odyssey is that you’re not required to dive at a specific time. It is not unusual for you and your buddy to be the only divers on a 500′ wreck. For photographers, this offers more opportunities to shoot those popular scenes without having to wait for others to move out of the way.

Diving Info

Diving in Truk Lagoon is an adventure you will never forget. WWII wrecks are scattered across 77 square miles. The wrecks are covered with life. There are over 300 varieties of hard and soft corals. On the outer reef, you’ll find mountains of coral that stretch as far as the eye can see, and drops off into the abyss. Here it is not unusual to see pelagic sharks.

The water temperature ranges from 82 to 84 degrees Fahrenheit. Visibility ranges from 30′ to 100′ depending on where you are in the lagoon and there is little current.
