Comments This was our second trip to the Kosrae Nautilus Resort. We spent seven nights at the resort and were extremely pleased with the Resort and the hospitality of the owners, Doug and Sally. They will do anything they can to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The reefs are beautiful and pristine. On several dives we were the only divers, other dives, we had no more than one other diver. Doug will dive any site that the current weather conditions allow. I would suggest talking with Doug prior to your dives so that he can explain the aspects of each site. Because of weather we only dove the sites on the north end of the Island. In the past we dove the sites on the East and the South. All sites are beautiful and have their own character. We spent one dive within about 30 meters of the buoy pin, simply because we enjoy looking in crevices and crack for all the small stuff that most divers swim by while covering real estate. Doug will accommodate your desires, simply ask so he knows what YOU want.

The accommodations are very clean and comfortable. I believe they have about 16 rooms, all very close to the dive shop and restaurant. Sallie, the man-friday, we help with anything you need, simply ask and he will do whatever possible.

The restaurant is good and the prices are extremely reasonable, they have a good menu and served our needs for the week. Sally manages the restaurant and will accommodate your desires for any special request they can provide.

Doug and Sally are gracious hosts and I would recommend their Resort to anyone that enjoys beautiful diving in a very relaxing atmosphere. We are going back in 2010!
