Description

Boat

The Truk Odyssey is a 40 Metre (132ft) steel dive yacht, built and powered for comfort, safety and stability. Previously named The Marie-Anda, she was built in 1978 in Fiji and was used as a cruise ship around Yasawa Island, Fiji, until 1999. Then she was refitted and became The Truk Odyssey. Her last refitting was in 2008. She is twin diesel-powered and can cruise at 9 knots and has 110 volt power on board.

Itineraries

Dive with Odyssey Adventures to see the ghost fleet of Truk Lagoon, the world’s best shipwreck destination. That’s only the beginning of your adventure. You’ll see an abundance of incredible tropical fish, anemones, gorgonians, and eagle rays.

On a normal itinerary Odyssey offer a 7 nights on board diving trip, all sites can be dived within the recreational dive limits.

Schedules: Sunday to Sunday. ( Up to 5 dives daily off the mother ship. )

A Typical Dive Day Aboard Odyssey

Since each day aboard Odyssey offers new adventures, no day is really typical. Nothing is routine and our schedule will vary depending on location. Here is an example of a typical dive day aboard Odyssey:

7:00 AM: Hot breakfast
7:45 AM: First dive briefing around. You will be able to do two dives before lunch.
Lunch Time: We usually move to a new site.
After lunch: You have the option to either do another dive, or relax on the either of the sundecks or in the privacy of your own stateroom.
5:00 PM: late afternoon dive
6:30 PM: A sumptuous dinner will be waiting for you.
After dinner: You may choose to do a night dive if you wish.
After Night Dive: Guests usually gather in the entertainment lounge to enjoy a movie, or review what was captured that day in video.

Since most of the dive sites in Truk Lagoon are fairly close to each other, it is easy for us to move around. The best part about diving aboard Odyssey is that we don't require everyone to dive at the same time. So 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.

We did the Odyssey this spring good fun, well worth the money. And thanks Johann tried to find us a suitable date for us. The Odyssey was the best liveaboard I've been on. They moor at the wrecksites, free nitrox (recommended), great food, and the crew will jump in the water with you anytime. Very comfortable cabins.
