Liveaboards – Odyssey Adventures
Chuuk & Truk Lagoon
On board the Odyssey, Truk’s finest liveaboard vessel, you’ll find amenities consistent with the world’s top liveaboards.
The Odyssey boasts nine large, luxurious staterooms all fully carpeted with private air conditioning controls, windows or large portholes, and private toilet, shower and sink all in every stateroom. Six of the staterooms are equipped to easily accommodate two single travelers in twin beds or a couple in a spacious king size bed. Also available are two staterooms for single travelers only – they have all the features of the double staterooms and easily accommodate the single traveler in a twin bed. The ninth stateroom’s sleeping arrangements are a bunk bed with a double bed below and twin above. All staterooms have a DVD player with 13″ monitor. Staterooms are cleaned daily.
The comfortable lounge is where you’ll find a variety of ways to entertain yourself. Odyssey always has a well stocked fridge to quench your thirst while you settle in for a good movie (with close to 300 DVD titles to choose from — even current ones) on the NTSC/PAL TV, VCR and DVD player. Please feel free to bring your own as the crew always loves to see new movies. Listen to some music on the stereo system or find a good book to read in the library. Sort through your slides on our large slide table, start a game (board games or cards) with your fellow passengers or crew; look through the various fish identification books. Odyssey also has a well-stocked boutique located in the lounge.
The dining room is the most striking room on the Odyssey. Attractive Fijian teak tables that can easily seat a full boat and her crew. Full service wet bar which is made out of coconut wood (also known as palmwood. After coconut trees fall, the wood is collected, treated and used to make gorgeous furniture.)
The Odyssey’s dining salon is fully carpeted and air conditioned with two walls of spacious windows for viewing the beauty of the islands in Truk Lagoon.
Delicious buffet-style meals come standard on the Odyssey, as their belief is that it feels more relaxed and similar to being at home.
Breakfast includes a hot breakfast plus toast, cereals, fruit and juices. Guests are served delicious lunches and snacks throughout the day. Hot, savory, hearty dinners will complete your exciting day of diving, eating and relaxing. Don’t forget the most important part of the meal though…the dessert!
During your stay in Truk Lagoon you will find that the majority of your diving will easily be done directly off the Odyssey while we are moored over the dive site. Once you arrive and set up your gear in your own private seat and protected dive locker, you won’t have to take your gear apart until you prepare to go home. Your tank (air or Nitrox) will be conveniently filled at your seat.
You’ll find that the spacious dive platform (13’ x 6’) has plenty of room for two divers plus a divemaster. Two 7’ ladders to help you out of the water where you can step up to the convenient freshwater shower to rinse off with. Just 4 steps to the dive deck and you’ll find the camera rinse tanks (one on either side of the boat). Past the camera rinse tanks are the gear rinse tanks. For photographers, the Odyssey has a large, sturdy, 3-tiered, carpeted photo table for all your working needs.
There’s plenty of space to hang your wetsuit on the bar just in front of the protected fan blowing warm air out of the engine room! Ahhh!
Dive with Odyssey Adventures to see the ghost fleet of Truk Lagoon, the world’s best shipwreck destination. That’s only the beginning of your adventure. The crew will take you to the outer reefs to see a pristine underwater utopia where over 300 varieties of soft and hard corals flaunt their rainbow colors. You’ll see an abundance of incredible tropical fish, anemones, gorgonians, eagle rays and even frenzied shark feedings.
You’ll have the option to dive at your leisure, or borrow one of their experienced local dive guides who will show you all those places you wouldn’t find on your own.
