The Odyssey, a 132’ air-conditioned live-aboard vessel has spacious rooms, private ensuite facilities, and a large entertainment lounge. All meals and beverages are included and so is the nitrox.
Micronesia encompasses an extensive area of the western Pacific. It’s a sub region of Oceania. There are nearly seven and a half million square kilometres/three million square miles of ocean and less than three thousand square kilometres/one thousand square miles of land. It’s comprised of small islands and even smaller coral-ringed atolls. If you think it sounds tailor made for divers, you’d be right. Its reputation as a premier dive destination is well deserved!
Many of the wrecks in Truk Lagoon are quite deep, but this former cargo ship’s superstructure is at about 9 metres/30 feet and the deck at 18 metres/60 feet. Ships are packed with parts, from airplane fuselages to ammo. Plus, many interior spaces, such as the pilothouse, galley and staterooms, are easily accessible.
Visibility – You'll consistently have more than 30 metres/100 feet of visibility, but it can range from 20 metres/65 feet to more than 50 metres/160 feet.
Water Temperature – Roughly 28° C/83° F all year.
Weather – Diving is available throughout the year. Air temperatures range from 24-29° C/75-90° F, but sea breezes manage to keep the worst of the humidity at bay. Parts of Micronesia are in the Typhoon belt, with storms occurring most frequently between August and December.
Featured Creatures – Mantas, sharks, trevally, spotted eagle rays, sea turtles, mandarin fish, anthias, anemone fish and nearly every other kind of tropical fish you can think of.
Recommended Training – The PADI Deep Diver and PADI Wreck Diver courses will help you enjoy many of the sites in Micronesia. AWARE – Coral Reef Conservation and AWARE-Fish Identification courses will help you appreciate the diversity of marine life.
