Located in the remote Republic of the Marshall Islands near Micronesia, Bikini Atoll is one of the most famous places in the world for wreck diving. After WWII the US gathered a mock naval fleet in order to test the effects of different atomic bombs on warships. Between 1946 and 1958 the US tested 67 nuclear bombs, most notably during ''Operation Crossroads''. Nowhere else can you dive such a fantastic collection of wrecks, including battleships, submarines, destroyers, and most notably the aircraft carrier USS Saratoga. Over 60 years later, the nuclear ghost fleet (as these wrecks are known) rest in crystal blue waters that have since become home to an abundance of marine life with thriving reefs and corals. Only since 1996 has Bikini Atoll been open to diving, making this destination a one-of-a-kind combination of spectacular historic wrecks in a remote and otherwise untouched tropical paradise.
As the wrecks of Bikini Atoll are mostly suited for extended range diving, there will be a minimum of 2 dives offered per day. Divers will be responsible for planning their own dives, with the assistance of the Cruise Director who has dived the wrecks of Bikini a number of times already. Travel time between Ebeye Island and Bikini Atoll is 23-34 hours depending on conditions. There is a check dive close to Kwajalein on the first day before sailing overnight to Bikini Atoll.
Please note: We cannot support Trimix for open circuit divers during Bikini Atoll trips on Truk Master
