Comments This was our second trip to Kosrae and Kosrae Village Resort. Bruce and Katrina and the rest of the staff are so friendly that it's a wonderful place to visit. While the diving wasn't super for the most part, the last day's diving made up for it (furthest dive site at the end of the island) -- squadrons of eagle rays (at least seven), sharks, turtles, eels and tremendous vitality of the reef. The island and the people are great to visit. KVR's accomodations are thatched roof with all the benefits (coffee maker, frig, fans, a wonderful outdoor shower); the restaurant is one of the best with fresh food and great variety. The dive operation is top notch -- they do a lot of training there and all possible mixes are available!
