Many thanks to Lance and crew for a great diving holiday. Looking forward to my return.

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.
My second trip here in 2 years, and whilst some Fantastic diving, the deterioration of the wrecks and build up silt is very noticeable. None the less yet another world class diving experience. Only made better by the quality of leadership given by the dive leader, the crew and other staff, all who add to making this pleasant trip.
Lance gives a detailed insight to each wreck and is always ready to answer any questions.
I wish the last night was the first night and I could do it all again.
Thank you Captain Lance and Crew of the SS THORFINN for superb week of diving. Our group of 15 booked this trip nearly 2 years ago, plenty of time for research and for the excitement to build; yet the reality for exceeded our expectations!
The Wreck diving was well planned, the shark dive was exciting! The boat crews and dive guides are the best!
And as for me SS THORFINN, a very comfortable floating home serving excellent food throughout the day.
I will do everything that I can to spread the word!
A Big Big Thank you to the Captain, and all the Crew for making our trip so Wonderful. We would more than recommend the SS THORFINN to anyone who dives!!
What an amazing time we had. The diving was brilliant along with the staff and of course the weather, Great Food and we met some really nice divers too.
Every dive a sensation! Perfect Wrecks, Perfect Crew, Perfect Ship and Perfect Organization…. Thanks for made it possible! Good Job!!
To all staff and crew I would just like to say what a fantastic holiday our group had with you from March 11. There is not one thing I could complain about (apart from the fact that there was too much food, so I am now on a diet) The staff and crew were exceptional in every way and I would like to thank them as it is the people you meet while away that makes the holiday. Thanks again, you are all fantastic.

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..!

My wife and I enjoyed this week aboard. The staff and crew as well as the Captain were especially helpful and very very pleasant with their attitudes toward us. I never saw an unpleasant exchange between crew which is especially important as it affects our attitude as well. The dive launch operators and guides did a tremendous job. The very best I have ever dived with. You will see my wife and I again as soon as we can get another trip arranged. Thank you again for the fine service, food, and entertainment. Your entire staff is to be commended.

Waited 20 years since visiting Guam and Saipan in ’89 to dive Truk. Always wanted to go on THORFINN based on recommendations from dive industry colleagues. Diving and accommodations lived up to expectations. Staff and guides were great. Will return and recommend.
Only have a few minutes left before we depart… therefore a short note. What a fantastic week’s diving..!!! Far exceeded my expectations of diving this famous and historical site. Our dive guide Tomo was an absolute genius. Thank you Tomo, and thank you THORFINN.
A long anticipated trip with so much promise. Did it ever live up to expectations..!! You bet and even more..!
A great week’s diving…had a fantastic time. The dive guide was absolutely superb. Thanks Tomo for making this week so memorable.

Truk has lived up to its reputation as the world’s best wreck diving. Amazing diving with a great crew.
Tom and Helmut
To Captain and Crew, Thank you for everything. You made us feel like at home during the most exciting dive holiday ever…. The wrecks of Chuuk/Truk Lagoon bring history closer to us while offering amazing dives. We stopped here on our ‘around the world tour’ and it was sure worth it..!!!! Hope we can get back . Thanks for letting us be part of your family.

Tomo is an amazing guide. Saw much more of the wrecks than with the Blue Lagoon ‘goons’ last year. I’ll be back..

Great time again. Good mix of nationalities onboard, but should be more Aussies…where are you..? Outnumbered by Kiwis..! Great diving, thanks Tomo and Eric. See you all again very soon. Cheers.

25 years of diving ambitions fulfilled this trip ! There can’t be many places to dive a fresh wreck every dive of the week. Highlights definitely were the working engine room of THORFINN, the I-169 sub, San Francisco Maru, Fujikawa Maru, and Fumitsuki destroyer. What an awesome dive week..! Great friends from South Island NZ.( Kiwi bastards). Made such a great change from always cold water diving and crayfish catching. Great many thanks to the crew and for the hospitality we’ve received. Good luck with all your futures..

I have not done a lot of diving here, but this week will have to rate as one of the best. The crew are great, they helped in every way possible. Thank you, I will remember this week for always..!

Thank you for an exciting week. Thanks to guides Buster and Tripler ….an awesome pair. Dining and lounge staff were great. Thank you.
Captain and Crew, Thank you for all your understanding and patience. It was a big adventure to go liveaboard with our baby on board. We all enjoyed this adventure in our own ways : – ) Wrecks were nice, but the whole boat and service even nicer. Thanks once more from Meri to Jelyn and Popo.

To Captain and Crew, Thank you for the memorable experience. The diving, the hospitality, the food were all more than one could hope for. Having Thorfinn all to ourselves is a memory we’ll never forget. ” Thank you.

Well…. 8 days diving in Truk Lagoon ! It really has been Paradise. I’m so glad the changes have improved the diving facility without destroying Thorfinn’s unique character. One major thank you to Tomo and Eric. Tomo is a legend.! We’ve been treated like royalty. ( Please look after them with Nitrox.) Everything about this ship is excellent, amazing, brilliant, and fantastic. Thanks a million. Having the ship to ourselves was really special.
To Capt Lance and his dedicated Crew, Thanks for a great week of great wreck diving. Again ! My 3rd trip leading a group and its always a pleasure bringing them to Truk. Way more here than you can do in a week. Special thanks to Tomo and Pako for always bringing everyone back in one piece. Nothing beats a great live-aboard right in the middle of the best diving. Everyone has really enjoyed their first trip to Truk, and now a little more icing on the cake with a few days at Yap. I’ll be working on plans for our return trip and we’ll see you in not distant future. Thanks again.

This was truly excellent, great ship Lance, and what stories. Meals were excellent and the dancing girls, well…….! The diving can only be described as fantastic and so deep, a real experience…especially for my kids who always regarded 30m as deep before. I loved penetrating the ‘Rio de Janeiro Maru’, and remember vividly the fear when I lost guide Tomo for 30 seconds. The ‘San Francisco Maru’s tanks are never to be forgotten. Thank you all for a great time in a fabulous ship with the best of fellow divers and crew.
