Overview of Bully Hayes Pirate Ship Wreck

Bully Hayes, an infamous and notorious 19th-century American pirate and trader, often used Kosrae as a roadstead. In 1874, a typhoon whipped the ocean waters that caught the wooden schooner in the harbor, and pushed her into the reef and sunk it. Named the Leonora or Lenora or Lenore, in honor of one of his twin daughters. It was discovered 110 years later.

There is very little left of the ship; some planks, ballast stones, metal sheeting from the hull and a large object that might be a water tank are usually visible. Other items that look man made are covered in coral growth, so it is hard to know what they were. The wreck site is in about 40 feet of water and subject to silting from a major mangrove system. Big waves will occasionally wash away some silt and then more items become visible. Although little is left, it is great to be able to say that you dove on a pirate ship!

"This is rated as a difficult/strenuous hike. It's about 7 hours round trip. There are a lot of steep steps going up & down. I consider myself to be mildly in shape. My quads were definitely burning going up the steps & my knees grumbled going down the steps. I was able to make the entire hike but I did have to stop a couple times to rest & catch my breath. It also rained during our hike which made the steps muddy & slippery. I slipped on the hike back & tweaked my wrists, so be careful! There was one person in our group that had to stop before they got to the Boiling Lake, their legs started cramping up. But we saw a bunch of younger kids just running up the steep steps and they didn't even look tired. Definitely take a guide with you on this one. Our guide showed us where to get the sulphur mud to put on our faces & arms like a mud-mask. He even boiled us some eggs in the hot pools! Also, take a couple changes of clothes (rain jacket, long sleeve shirt, bathing suit & a towel). It was VERY windy in some spots & after it rained on us, it didn't feel good to be cold & wet. But we did get to soak in the warm pools on the way down, it warmed us up & got us relaxed. Made it hard to continue on the hike, haha. I only recommend going if you are in decent shape & not afraid of heights.
