Diving Historic Chuuk Lagoon with Michael Gerken
Today we have a chat with Michael Gerken, running dive/photo tours in Chuuk (aka Truk) Lagoon Micronesia and also the Sand Tiger Shark Wrecks North Carolina. He is one of the best photographers in his genre that I’ve ever seen. He talks about Chuuk, diving, photography, and COVID downtime. Chuuk background: Feb 1944, this was the largest air attack ever. Often known as the Japanese Pearl Harbor, scores of Japanese ships were sunk in the allied attack on this fortification. The consequences of the attack made "Truk lagoon the biggest graveyard of ships in the world".

I met "Mikey Gerken" years ago (early 90's) on a Blackbeards trip to Bahamas out of Miami. Became good friends and he even attended my wedding. My bachelor party was a night dive! He has really become a master of his profession. Feels awesome seeing this! We are still Facebook friends and I only wish I could take the time off to dive with him!
