Blue Lagoon Dive Shop

Blue Lagoon Dive Resort

Blue Lagoon Dive Shop in Chuuk opened its doors to divers on November 13, 1973. Since then the humble shack has grown into a modern dive shop that provides full service to divers looking for adventure on the historic wrecks of Truk.

Located on the grounds of the Blue Lagoon Dive Resort, formerly known as the Truk Continental Hotel, the air-conditioned dive shop provides sales, service and classes. A fleet of fast dive boats and knowledgeable guides provide easy access to the wrecks and allows divers the freedom to dive in small, personal groups on wrecks of their choice. This is where you will find some if the best diving in Micronesia.

When you experience the mystery and excitement of the Fujikawa Maru with its beautiful soft coral growth and schools of colourful fish or descend into the cargo holds of the Sankisan and San Francisco Maru you will understand why the license plates in Chuuk call it "Divers Haven." With over 40 wrecks to dive you will want to extend your trip!

The Blue Lagoon Dive Shop does not offer any courses and only accept certified divers. Guests needs to have their certification card with them otherwise they will not be able to dive.
