While divers may have caused damage over the years, time is the major factor in the state of wrecks. Truk will still be a major drawcard for many years to come, most of the wrecks are still in excellent condition, not having to face the large ocean swells.
We are due there this August to start filming the second in the series of "Shipwrecks of Truk lagoon" for the Blue Lagoon Dive shop. (DVD) Living in Australia we have access to some of the great diving destination close by. The Solomon islands, Papua New Guinea for example, but none come even close to the huge list of shipwrecks offered in Truk.
