Comments Kosrae Nautilus is a small, out-island resort where you are made to feel a member of the Beitz family, which runs it. It has all the amenities of larger properties A/C, nice pool, good restaurant. The diving is excellent. Gigantic, pristine coral heads over 30 ft across and 20 ft tall, gin-clear water, multicolor and multiple species of reef fish. (Fish of eating size have all gone.) The Continental Micronesia Island Hopper stops three days a week eastbound, three days westbound. There are some island walks worth doing, and some good snorkeling. Usual schedule is 2 dives a day, our tour leader had arranged 3. Never on Sunday, when Kosrae closes down completely except for church.
