After launching Maldives, Bahamas and Red Sea only late 2016, Master Liveaboards are pleased to announce yet another exciting destination: Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands! This exclusive and unparalleled diving destination is undisputedly ranked first on any serious wreck & technical divers’ bucket list. This is well justified; as nowhere else on earth you will be able to dive such a unique collection of historic battleships, cruisers, as well as the world famous USS Saratoga aircraft carrier with its 270m (888ft.) flight deck. For this reason, Bikini Atoll has been declared the first UNESCO World Heritage site for the Marshall Islands archipelago in 2010.
In the 1940’s and 50’s, the United States designated Bikini a testing site to launch a multitude of atomic bombs on a collection of war naval ships. This resulted in the most exciting and interesting underwater wreck graveyard in the world surrounded by untouched coral gardens. The ultimate wreck diving for the true fans.
Regular trips will start from May 2018 and will be operated by the Truk Master, offering a choice of 10 and 11 nights’ trips to a maximum of 11 guests per cruise. Most wrecks in Bikini Atoll are located beyond recreational diving maximum depths; therefore technical diving skills and wreck experience are required.
