10 Top Dive Sites in the Pacific

Chuuk Lagoon, Micronesia

2 of 10

Micronesia’s Chuuk Lagoon is home to a kaleidoscopic underwater world of colourful coral and tropical fish, but for divers these are almost peripheral to the main attraction. Dozens of World War II ships and planes rest at the bottom of the lagoon, including the Fujikawa Maru, complete with intact fighter planes in its holds, and the Shinkoku Maru, decorated by nature with soft corals and sponges.

Nowhere else in the world are there so many wrecks in close proximity, situated in shallow clear water which means many can even be seen while snorkelling. One of the most spectacular wrecks worth seeing is the intact Jake seaplane and the Helmet Wreck, named for its trove of spooky artefacts lying inside and scattered about the decks.  Only permit holders can dive here.
