Imagine you have found a place
that almost no one else has heard of. A place
where the line up at immigration is likely to just be you and a few locals.
Imagine it has warm water with a clarity of 30m plus, where looking from
the shallows down into the depths reveals all the colours blue.
Imagine the hard corals are so pristine and dense
that they take your breath away with the complexity and concentration
of their structure.
Imagine that nearly every dive can be done as a gentle drift but the
currents are usually so mild that to drift or not to drift is completely
up to you,
a place where photography comes easy as there is no surge or swell to
Imagine that the locals are so aware of how precious the corals surrounding
their island are that they have completely disallowed anchoring and
there is a network of mooring buoys surrounding the island.
Now imagine you are there, diving it and the biggest crowd you could
expect would be just a handful of other people.
This is diving Kosrae, you have found it, it does exist.
