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 was my most favorite hike! It was a little difficult in the sense that you need to have good balance & agility to maneuver over some of the slippery rocks & cross through the river a couple times. You will get wet! I was soaked up to my waist. And once you make it to the thunderous waterfall, it is pure bliss. Victoria Falls is even more beautiful up close. We swam in the water next to the waterfall but you can't get under the waterfall, it's very powerful. It felt like we were in a tropical storm, haha. We were all laughing trying to get as close as we could, but the force of the falls pushes you away. Victoria Falls is a must see.
