Kosrae in a Nutshell
This remote island remains a diving secret, hosting intricate and healthy reefs but very few tourists. It's located 2,960 miles southwest of Honolulu. At only eight miles wide at its furthest points, this small 30% habitable island has been described as a undeveloped Tahiti.
The average suface and water temperatures are both about 80 degrees. Distance to dive sites varies between 5 - 30 minutes, dependant on what dock you depart from and what dive site your heading to. Diving is done year round, but split to basically two different seasons. June - Oct the currents are typcially calmer allowing easier diving, while Nov - May hold stronger currents but higher chances for large pelagics.
Kosrae is a wonderful island for history, culture, and environment. All local activites orient around those three aspects. Either Kayak through the mangrove channels, take a ecohike through jungles and mountains, or enjoy some of the cultural traditions still practiced today like canoe building, weaving, woodcarving, and farming/fishing.
Walung Drop-Off: Wall dive with schools of barracuda, reef sharks, hammerheads, turtles and more. Can have fast currents
Shark Island: Schools of barracuda, dog tooth tuna, eaglerays, and reef sharks can be commonly seen here. It can also be a great night dive location when the currents are low.
