I dove with the divemaster as he and I were the only divers on the boat
that day. We dove a shallow profile at two of the island's 58 moored buoy
dive sites: Hiroshi Point and Boundaries.

I brought my Sea & Sea film camera but it jammed on my first dive.
Katrina Adams, co-owner of the Sleeping Lady Divers and Kosrae Village
Ecolodge, was kind enough to give me a CD with hundreds of fantastic images
on it of the island's kaleidoscope of colorful corals, tropical fish,
turtles, sharks, rays and barracuda, plus amazing images of Kosrae's
rainforests, mangrove forests, waterfalls and friendly people.

Kosrae Village Ecolodge and Dive Resort offers guests an ecotourism
experience in traditional Kosraean thatched cottages. Katrina Adams
told me, I think Kosraes coral is a bazillion times better than other
Micronesian islands. To prove her point, we motored in a covered 8.5-meter
catamaran boat a few minutes out of Utwe-Walung Marine Park on the islands
southern side to Hiroshi Point at Buoy #15, then to Buoy #16, Boundaries.

As one of the islands most celebrated sites, Hiroshi Point is another
easy, shallow drift dive for any skill level. Close enough for shore dives
during high tide and low surf, divers can view large coral heads estimated
to be more than 2,000 years old. Again, the air and water temps were balmy
at 29o C, with visibility ranging today from 20  25 meters. 

A handful of stinging jellyfish floated nearby, but was no danger to the
divemaster and me. I focused my attention on macro critters like the
colorful Christmas tree worms, Anemonefish eggs, a single barracuda
checking me out, and watching Parrotfish voraciously attack the coral.
