Kosrae had a fantastic reef system and vis was essentially perfect. Could
see across large canyons with other side in perfect view. Fantastic plate,
dome and staghorn coral areas. Lge plates 25 ft plus and domes the same
size. Areas of the largest and densest staghorn coral I have ever seen.
Not a high density of fish like some of the Caribbean destinations but
there were lots of fish ranging from little ace of spades to large
triggerfish. The species on the reef were often the unusual variants of the
ones you see elsewhere. The rare ones. Saw many giant clams but not as big
as at GBR. Island has giant clam farm to repopualate them. Natives are fond
of giant clam meat. 
Kosrae infrastructure is very good and homes and culture are very nice. 
Kosrae Nautilus Resort was nice; good facilities for a place as remote as
this. Nice Dive boat easy to dive from. New owner motivated to please.
Divemasters were relatively inexperienced when we were there and
concentrated on safety issues rather than showing us interesting creatures.
Since all of us were ixperienced divers, that was not much of an issue.
They did not interfere with our decisions on dive profiles apart from
querying us on air toward the end of the dive. 
I would recommend this destination and resort to anyone and want to return
