Truk Lagoon

Here is where we lived during the Truk Lagoon portion of our dive trip, April 30 - May 5.  The Odyssey was indeed plush by any live aboard standards and the food excellent.

We had dive briefings prior to each dive given by our hosts Lenny, the Captain,  

and his wife Cara, Co-Captain.

Just to make sure we didn't get lost I brought along my Garmin GPS III+ and logged the location of our dive sites which I transferred to some maps of Chuuk.  A small scale map of the area shows all the sites we visited and includes the full extent of Truk Lagoon.  A large scale map was scanned from a dive chart published by North Valley Diver Publications with more detail of the area around the islands of Moen, Dublon, and Fefan.

We ate well as these pictures attest, Odyssey meal.jpg (50425 bytes) thanks to our excellent cook, Emeron. Emeron cook.jpg (27324 bytes) The closest we came to the obligatory group photo was en route to Eten Island. Eten group.jpg (40826 bytes)
