Bikini Atoll (Marshall Islands) Itineraries

Nowhere else can you dive such a fantastic collection of wrecks, including battleships, submarines, destroyers, and most notably the aircraft carrier USS Saratoga. Over 60 years later, the nuclear ghost fleet (as these wrecks are best known), rest in crystal blue waters that have since become home to an abundance of marine life with thriving reefs and corals.

Only since 1996 has Bikini Atoll been open to diving, making this destination a one-of-a-kind combination of spectacular historic wrecks in a remote and otherwise untouched tropical paradise. All divers must hold a technical certification as most of the wrecks sit at 50m or deeper.

Bikini Atoll - 10 Nights, 11 Nights, and 13 Nights Itinerary

Embarkation: Ebeye Island around15:00-15:30 (dependent on flight schedules)
Disembarkation: Ebeye Island between10:00and12:00 (dependent on flight schedules)

Transfer from Kwajalein to Ebeye Island and vice versa is by ferry which takes approximately 25 minutes from the US Army base. As Kwajalein is US Army territory, it is a restricted area and visitors are not allowed outside of the airport.

Upon arrival, travellers are taken to a holding area while their luggage is searched by sniffer dogs, and will remain there until the shuttle bus arrives for transfer to where the Army ferry departs for Ebeye Island. Upon arrival at Ebeye a representative from Master Liveaboards will meet guests for transfer to the liveaboard vessel.

As the average depth of the wrecks in Bikini Atoll is around 50 metres (150ft), this itinerary is only suitable for technical divers with previous wreck experience.

Requirements: Technical diving certified - minimum PADI Tec 50 or equivalent with wreck diving experience and 100+ logged dives. Guests are responsible for planning and adhering to their own dive profiles and decompression stops, and for obtaining suitable dive insurance for technical diving.

Day 1: Embarkation between 15:00 and 15:30 is followed by introductions, boat and safety briefings and dinner. There is no diving on embarkation day.

Day 2: If possible, the cruise director will schedule a morning dive on Prinz Eugen in Kwajalein Atoll before commencing the crossing to Bikini Atoll. The total distance from Ebeye to Bikini Atoll is 406 kilometres which is 25-34 hours of cruising depending on weather conditions.

Day 3: Afternoon arrival at Bikini Atoll. Diving on this day is dependent on how long the crossing from Ebeye takes and arrival time in Bikini.

Subsequent diving days are scheduled as follows: Breakfast - Dive 1 - Lunch - Dive 2 - Snack - Dinner.

Mid-trip (Day 6, 7 or 9, depending on length of itinerary): 1 morning dive only. After lunch guests will have the opportunity to take a land tour on Bikini Island followed by beach barbeque, or guests can remain on board and relax. No alternative diving will be offered.

Day before disembarkation: Departure from Bikini Atoll in the early hours for crossing back to Ebeye.

Disembarkation day: Arrival in Ebeye around 10:00; disembarkation time will be dependent on United Airlines flight departure time and ferry to Kwajalein.

Truk Lagoon Itineraries

Truk Lagoon (also known as Chuuk) is best known for its world-class wreck diving and with over 61 wrecks, tightly packed into a coral reef lagoon, it is easy to appreciate why divers travel to this area time and time again. During WWII, the Japanese fleet used Truk as one of their main staging points for attacks on the allied forces.

Truk Lagoon - 7 Nights, 9 Nights, and 10 Nights Itinerary

Embarkation: Weno at 14:00
Disembarkation: Weno at 07:00

Transfers from and to Chuuk Airport or Weno hotels for embarkation and disembarkation are included in the cruise price. Due to flight constraints, some Truk Lagoon itineraries operate back to back on the same day. In these instances, outgoing guests will be transferred to a local resort after a light breakfast where they can wait in comfort for their outgoing flight.

Incoming guests arriving in the morning on embarkation day will be transferred to a local resort where they can enjoy a light lunch and some time to relax or visit the local museum.

Requirements: PADI Advanced Open Water or equivalent, 50 logged dives - Recommended additional 40 meter deep diver certified for recreational divers, or "PADI Tec 50" or equivalent for technical divers.

The number of technical level dives possible will be determined by individual dive plans, taking into consideration bottom times and decompression stops. Technical divers need to submit a complete dive plan before each dive. Normally, we do not limit dive times, unless we need to move the boat, which guests will be informed of during the dive briefings. However, all plans and extended bottom times must be reasonable from a safety point of view as Truk Lagoon is in a very remote location with limited emergency facilities.

Day 1: Embarkation from 14:00 onwards (dependent on flight schedules) followed by introductions, boat and safety briefings and dinner. There is no diving on embarkation day. On the following days, your Cruise Director will schedule up to 4 recreational dives per day; either 4 day dives or 3 day dives and a twilight dive. There are no night dives on the wrecks.

Days 2-6 (7 nights) / Days 2-8 (9 nights) / Days 2-9 (10 nights): Each day is typically scheduled as follows: Light breakfast - Dive 1 - Full breakfast - Dive 2 - Lunch - Dive 3 - Snack - Dive 4 - Dinner

Day before disembarkation: Depending on guests' flight departure** time, there may be the possibility to schedule 1 or 2 dives in the morning for the last full day on board.

Disembarkation day: Following a light breakfast on board, disembarkation is scheduled for 07:00. We kindly request that guests check their flight departure times to ensure that they leave a minimum of 24 hours between their final dive and their flight home.
