Scuba Dive at Utwa Reef
Island of Kosrae
Micronesia
 

This was the second day of SCUBA Diving on Kosrae.  The weather had picked up and the surface conditions become rough on the way from the Utwa Boat Harbor to the dive site.  During the dive, a replacement Mooring Buoy was secured to a reef anchor in support of the very successful Mooring Buoy Reef Program that protects the reef from loose boat anchors.  The surface conditions became worse during the dive and we had to cancel the second dive. The Kosrae Village Resort catamaran boats easily brought us back to the boat harbor in six to 8 foot swells.  Despite the rough surface conditions, the visibility on t he reef remained very clear.  The weather front quickly made its way across the island and the surface conditions were dive ready by the next day.

Photographic equipment  and film used during this dive:
Nikonos III w/15mm Lens   Dual Strobes
Film:  Kodachrome 64
