    Query re Truk

    Three of us visiting Truk May this year. Two Poseidon MK6 divers and one OC diver. Does anyone have any information about availability of Poseidon pre-packed scrubber cartridges at Truk ? Best wishes to all. Mike-H.

    I'd be shocked. it's pretty rudimentary out there.

    Get a repackable scrubber. Pretty sure they don't have the 79 prepacked. But they might be able to provide if you preorder them. But I guess it will be to a high price due to the location.

    I don't know of any operators having EACs or prepacked cartridges there. Most divers and tour operators send their own so you might have to look into sending what you need before you head over yourself.

    Regards,

    Re: Query re Truk

    I took my MKVI there last year. No pre-pacs available. Take a TecMe would be my advice. Sending pre-pacs ahead of time will be expensive and unreliable. If you do send ahead, send at least 3 months before time and check with Truk Stop or Blue Lagoon which courier to use. I think it is DHL that services Micronesia but could be wrong.

    Re: Query re Truk

    Many thanks to all. Mike0396. Lancer 4545 . Jeppe E. Aainslie. Oh well. Being an impoverished Brit cannot afford airfreight. Will have to use my Tecme packable scrubber. I shall have to break open all my used Poseidon pre-packed units to recover the end filters which will fit. Again many thanks lads. Mike-H.

    You can always use the Postal Service. Truk or Chuuk has a US postcode and the postal service is slow but works. It usually take 3 weeks from Australia to get there but it does get there.

    Contact Captain Lance Higgs on the Thorfinn. Likely he will/could have some available. Great liveaboard as well, will be my choice when I visit next, for certain. Hands down.
