Comments [None]***PLEASE SUBMIT THIS: if you check your records you did say I could send this in even though it's past the July acceptance time.
1.Truk Odyssey: no much can be said: Three times in Truk and two times on the Odyssey. The greatest dive boat/home on this planet

2.Pohnepei: The Village: 2nd time(1st time the diving was not exciting)>The Village Resort is amazing; super accomodations, food/trip to Nam Badol and now new boats with larger engins. BUT the Manta Dive, only ten minutes from the resort puts Yap to shame. Mantas at 50 feet and at the surface; close up and personal. The most amazing Manta diving ever.The entire staff:totally professional and friendly. GO THERE FOR THIS ONE DIVE IT'S WORTH THE TIME & THE MONEY

3.Kosrae:The third part of our July trip(week on the Odyssey, three days on Pohnepei and four days on Kosrae):The island is so relaxing and clean! The people of truly very friendly. The Kosrae Village-Ecolodge and Dive Resort is rustic, clean and beautiful. The owners know EVERYTHING and I mean everything about diveing, gases etc. The food was fun and enjoyable BUT the diving: The most gorgeous hard coral I have ever seen in my life and in perfect condition. No one travels here!! GO!! We saw prestine coral below 150'. The dive boat is fun!!E-mail me for any info.
