Kosrae Snorkeling: The Blue Hole
a 200 meter walk across the reef flat in front of Kosrae Nautilus Resort, is
a large natural hole in the reef flat.
A leisurely snorkel around the edge
can take up to 3 hours if take your time.
The visibility isn’t as good
as outside the fringing reef, but there is an abundance of marine life, and
no current, so it’s safe snorkelling for most people. Here you will see
a wide variety of colorful reef fish, maybe a stingray or two, and a good variety
There is even a small stand of mangroves at one end, which
is interesting to snorkel around. If you snorkel over the reef flat on the
sides of the blue
hole, you will encounter thousands of sea cucumbers.
This is also a nice
spot for an evening snorkel, as lots of nocturnal critters come out of hiding.
