Great wreck diving in Truk Lagoon!
The Truk Siren was happy to welcome on board her new guests, all very excited to dive the most exciting WWII wrecks in the world!
First on the schedule was the Kiyosumi Maru, this 6 hold diesel passenger cargo vessel was in the repair anchorage on the day of the attacks and didn’t stand a chance as it was torpedoed in its starboard bow tearing a catatrosphic hole in her hull which flooded both hold one and two. The destruction is terrifying and we swam in easily through the gaping torpedo hole big enough to drive a bus through. The Kiyosumi has been nick named the bicycle wreck, in one of the aft holds the frame and what is left of the wheels of a bicycle are wedged neatly against the bulkhead. Dropping down from here we squeezed through a small opening that then opens up into another one of her cavernous holds.
