Another great week. The knowledge and skills of dive guides make it all the more interesting. The food, as last time, was more than enough, the time on the wrecks was too short!! (Nobody to blame, just too much to see). Thanks to all the crew, will be back. - UK ...Dave Rankin
Wonderful diving in an area of the world loaded with history from our recent past..! We thank both the Captain and crew for making our stay, especially the diving, safe and enjoyable. We both hope to return one day..! ...Mike and Marilyn McShane - St. Louis, Mo
Do not be intimidated by rumored extremes of diving in Truk Lagoon, as its warm tropical conditions, sheltering islands and reefs make it one of the most comfortably accessible dive locations in the world. This sheltered part of Micronesia has diving and wrecks suiting all divers, from shallow snorkeling, down to deeper wrecks (still within recreational limits) for more advanced divers. There are minimal currents with-in the confines of Truk Lagoon and consistent good visibility, making the diving easy and accessible for any diver. Penetrations and dive depths are nominated and customized to the comfort, needs and experience level of individual divers. We offer a range of courses onboard from open water through to Rescue.
Aboard Thorfinn, you will be provided with some of the most rewarding experiences in technical diving available around the world. Onboard oxygen generators provide a steady supply of oxygen, and combined with partial pressure filling methods and a Haskel booster, various mixes of Enriched Air Nitrox can be provided to suit individual requests. Thorfinn supplies hospital grade Helium for Tri-mix blends if requested. Banded twin cylinders with isolator manifolds and various size stage/deco cylinders are available for your technical diving desires. Side-mount cylinders are easily rigged with onboard equipment supplies. Our technically trained dive team will ease any equipment strains and ensure full surface support. Four dive tenders provide possibility of alternate schedules for extended deep profiles. We offer most specialty courses aboard as well as technical dive training.
Thorfinn’s two oxygen generators produce between 95 — 97% purity, and along with imported Helium, makes Thorfinn, Truk Lagoons most favored option for both re-breather and technical diving. To meet special needs for re-breather divers we supply both Sofnalime and Sodasorb for re-breather scrubbers in a range of grades. The diluents mix provided is pure compressed air or in a combination with our hospital grade helium. A selection of re-breather cylinders are available for rental in a range of sizes suitable for most manufacturers, and all cylinders are oxygen cleaned and compatible to comply with industry standards.
