50Fotos of Chuuk, Federated States of Micronesia. These photos are from my brief trip to Chuuk in July 2006, but I lived there with my wife from 1974-76 as a Peace Corps Volunteer and also conducted master's thesis research there in 1979. In those days, the islands were known as Truk, and were part of the U.S, Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands. These photos are of the main lagoon island of Weno (Moen), and of my former home island of Tonowas (Dublon). Some of the people pictured I've known for more than 35 years. The Chuukese song "Romonum I" was recorded in the islands by the late David Fanshawe. See the other 50Fotos slideshows.
http://www.thecenterforlifeexpression.com Chuuk Lagoon, formerly known as Truk Lagoon, is a sheltered body of water in the central Pacific. North of Papua New Guinea, it is located mid-ocean at 7 degrees North latitude, and is part of Chuuk State within the Federated States of Micronesia. During World War II, Truk Lagoon was the Empire of Japan's main base in the South Pacific theater. Operation Hailstone, executed by the United States in 1944, culminated in one of the most important naval airstrikes of the war at Truk. Twelve Japanese warships, thirty-two merchant ships and 249 aircraft were destroyed, although the larger warships had moved to Palau a week earlier. In 1969, French oceanographer Jacques Cousteau and his team explored Truk Lagoon. Following Cousteau's 1971 television d...

Ifalik (also spelled Ifaluk) is a coral atoll of four islands in the central Caroline Islands in the Pacific Ocean and forms a legislative district in Yap State in the Federated States of Micronesia. Ifalik is located approximately 40 kilometers (25 mi) east of Woleai and 700 kilometers (430 mi) southeast of the island of Yap. The population of Ifalik was 561 in 2000, living on 1.5 km2. The primary islets of Ifalik are called Ella, Elangelap, Rawaii, and Falalop, which is the atoll's main island. Yap State is one of the four states of the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM). The other states are Kosrae State, Pohnpei State, and Chuuk State. It administers both the Yap Islands (locally known as "Waqab", "Waqaab" or "Wa'ab") and the island of Satawal, as well as fourteen atolls reac...

Many species of sharks inhabit the waters around Yap. Unlike other regions, you can see sharks on just about every dive. Yap Divers has organized shark dives to put you in position to get up close photos of these beautiful creatures.
The island of Kosrae in Micronesia is a hidden jewel. Trapper eats a raw Tuna heart. Unusual fish, tidal lagoons, massive coral heads and blue water dropping thousands of feet just outside the reef lure Trapper Rudd and Paul Hansen on this Polynesian-style angling adventure.
One of the greatest archeological mysteries in the world, the lost city of Nan Madol.

Video and photos from our November 2010 trip to Palau and Yap: Sat 27 Nov 2010 On our last day in Yap, we start with a driving tour around Yap. Each village is responsible for the maintenance of public spaces, rsulting in beautifully manicured roadside verges. The island is laced with a series of paths through the jungle connecting the important local civic centers of each town, centuries old. Most of the stone money banks are along these traditional paths. We get guided down one such path to Kadai Village, a sort of Yapese "living village" for tourists to see traditional crafts and dance performances. Even though the Yap reefs have been devastated by the two recent typhoons, Yap above water remains the gem that we remember from previous visits.

Video and photos from our November 2010 trip to Palau and Yap: Fri 26 Nov 2010 Our last day of Micronesian diving. We go to the head of Mil Channel (i.e. Yap Corner) hoping to see Mantas coming or going to the cleaning station, but in case we do not, Yap Corner has its own charm. No Mantas, but spectacular terrain. We go back to Slow & Easy because of the great dive there perviously and this time spend 90 minutes with a pair of mating Octopuses (Octopi or Octopodes - http://www.boingboing.net/2011/01/04/great-moments-in-ped.htm]). We end the trip with a dusk dive on Rainbow reef and watch the magnificent Mandarin Fish do its daily mating ritual.
From sunken treasures, to deep sea artifacts, these are 10 Unbelievable Discoveries in the South Pacific Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 5. New Zealand Sunken Treasure Divers who were cleaning a local harbor were rewarded with an amazing discovery of 868 gold coins! Finders Keepers! The harbor of Wellington has been quite messy lately and many glass bottles, and plastic materials were being removed but they never expected anything like this! They appear to be of high value but no one could figure out exactly why they were thrown away into the harbor. The crew couldn’t tell exactly where they were from and the coins origins are still somewhat of a mystery. After being down there for a long period of time, it’s believed the markings on them eroded. So we guess they won’t be ...
Video and photos from our November 2010 trip to Palau and Yap: Tue 23 Nov 2010, Day 15 in Micronesia. Long boat ride to the amazing south end of Yap. We dive the Yap Caverns; lots of deep canyon swim-throughs connecting georgeous shallow coral tops. Then, going a bit further up the west side, we dive Spanish Wall and Cory's Reef. The Caverns seem unchanged from our trip 12 years ago, the the latter two sites clearly show the damage of the two typhoons Mitag(2002) and Sudal(2004) [http://faroutliers.wordpress.com/2004/04/15/aftermath-of-typhoon-sudal-in-yap-micronesia/]. What has not changed is the people of Yap...it remains our favorite island in the world!
This video showcases the many treasures of the Micronesian island of Kosrae which is located halfway between Guam and Hawaii in the middle of the great blue Pacific Ocean. Kosrae offers the dream of sunny, unspoiled beaches, caressed by crystal waters and deep blue skies. Vivid green is the color of it's tropical mindscape and calm is the color of it's fragrant refreshing air..On beautiful Kosrae, pleasure calls in the smiles of its gracious people, in the lure of its sea for fishing and play, and most of all in its restful, scenic way of life. Rich in historical sites and ruins, this jewel of Micronesia was a favorite haven of pirate Bully Hayes. Now it can be yours.
Our deadline at MATA to ship was moved up several days so we had an "all hands" work day to load a container with a Cessna 206, clothing and other goods for missions work with Pacific Missionary Aviation in Micronesia. I recorded the videos, Gordon and Stacie took photos and the music is from the YouTube free database.
