Diving from the SS Thorfinn
SS Thorfinn is one of the world’s best equipped live aboard dive cruisers, having cruised / explored Micronesian waters since 1982.
From operating base at Truk Lagoon, continuous non-stop diving is conducted 7 days per week, with up to 5 dives per day, on 5 differing sites – giving opportunity to view 30+ wrecks during a one week visit. Thorfinn’s structures and safety gear comply with IMO (International Maritime Organization) standards.
More Wrecks. More Daily Dives
Operating as Eco-Friendly, this ship utilizes island power plant waste lubes for its primary heating fuel under boilers driving it’s steam propulsion system. (pls note.. a ‘green ship’ )
Twenty-two island staff provide cheerful personalized service on a 1:1 crew to guest ratio. They range from individually assigned dive crews attending each diver’s needs, to full time hostesses, deck maintenance staff, large machinery staff, and 2 chefs preparing varieties of tasty international cuisine. Special dietary requests are catered as available food supplies permit.
All diving is conducted from well designed, covered 30ft tenders with each craft diving separate sites to avoid crowding over a single mooring. Diving in small groups, experienced local guides will show the very best attractions at each site. Many have been with Thorfinn for more than 15 years.
We’re accustomed to working with technical and rebreather divers by supplying banded double cylinders, 3-4 ltr pony bottles, and special rebreather bottles as may be requested. Both SodaSorb or Sofnolime are freely supplied, Optional Helium should be advance requested to ensure sufficient on-hand quantities. Partial pressure blending via an efficient series of electric and air driven gas boosters produce various mixes of Enriched Air Nitrox and Trimix to meet individual requests. Aboard Thorfinn, you’ll receive rewarding experiences in technical diving with ability to extend diving at many deeper sites.
