The Shipwrecks Of Truk Lagoon: The Dive Trip Of A Lifetime

Truk Lagoon is the ultimate dive destination for wreck divers, and Peter Walker caught both the excitement and the fascination of exploring the sunken World War II Japanese war fleet in a superb 22 minute documentary

Truk 2009 from Peter Walker on Vimeo.

This is a superb short documentary about diving the World War II wrecks of Truk Lagoon made by my friend Peter Walker in 2009. It’s 22 minutes long, and gives an evocative insight into what it’s like to dive at the sunken Japanese war fleet at Truk – the Holy Grail for most divers, and made even more special for Peter as he got to dive it together with his son.

Peter is an accomplished videographer and his footage both below and above water along with the well-paced narrative makes for an atmospheric taster of what it’s like to dive at this incredible location. Thanks again to Peter for letting me share the video here on Divehappy. You can see more of his work at
