I brought my Sea & Sea film camera while the divemaster had his digital
camera. He was extremely accommodating to take photos of me above and below
water, and shared his shots of flat worms, turtles, octopi, tropical fish,
and the rainbow of 200+ indigenous corals.

Comments  
On this two-dive excursion in Kosrae, I saw more varieties of tropical fish
 like of Parrotfish, Angel Fish, Saddle Wrasses, Pearl Wrasses, Spotted
Trunkfish, Butterfly Fish, Moorish Idols, and Clarks Anemonefish t han
Id seen in two decades of diving in the tropics. 

The highlight of this dive was a small octopus that I saw climbing over a
coral head, seeking shelter with a stick of coral in one of its tentacles.
As we watched, it camouflaged itself.

Doug Beitz, my Aussie divemaster and co-owner of the Kosrae Nautilus Resort
who has lived on this Micronesia island for 7.5 years said, I learned to
dive here, became an instructor here, and choose to live here because this
island offers more variety, great visibility, warm water, easy diving for
any level, and extremely short boat rides to the sites.
