MV Truk Master is a member of the Master Liveaboard fleet. It is one of the few yachts that offers diving safaris in Truk Lagoon, a destination with numerous wrecks. The Truk Master liveaboard was rebuilt by the Worldwide Dive and Sail team in 2016.
The Truk Master has 7 cabins and can accommodate 16 guests. All staterooms have air conditioning, private facilities, hair dryers, and safes for personal belongings. Divers can relax in the lounge area on the Truk Master after a day of diving, which has comfortable sofas and a plasma TV. If you prefer to stay outside, you can spend time on the boat’s sun deck, which has lounge chairs. The open-air dining area is perfect for viewing the gorgeous scenery.
The Truk Master dive deck has enough space for all divers on board to be comfortable. There are under-bench storage boxes for personal belongings like fins and masks. There are also shower hoses for rinsing between dives.
The Truk Master liveaboard is one of the few boats that offers the opportunity to dive in the Japanese wrecks in Truk. A large part of the Japanese fleet was based here during WWII. Battleships, aircraft carriers, tugboats, gunboats, minesweepers, and submarines were destroyed in 1941 by air attacks. In 1969, Jacques Cousteau and his team explored this place, and since then it has become an attractive diving destination. The Truk Master has 7-night and 10-night trips to Truk Lagoon, which include visiting numerous sunken ships. The boat has equipment for technical diving, for those who want to explore every part of its wrecks at a depth of 30-50 m/98-164 ft. Here divers can see cargo ships that still hold torpedos and periscopes, and tanks that rest on the decks. The Rio de Janeiro Maru was once a luxury passenger boat and now lies on the bottom of the sea. This is one of the boats that guests on the Truk Master can explore. Divers can also visit the Shark Island reef, a cleaning station for sharks.

It is possible to dive in Truk Lagoon all year round. The temperature is between 21-27°C/70-81°F in the coolest months (between December and April). October and November are the wettest months.
