Widely regarded as one of the best dives in the world the Blue Corner rarely fails to disappoint. "Adrenaline rush" and "sensory overload" are terms often found in dive logs. It is a very popular stop for the numerous liveaboards in the area.
The site is a shallow coral shelf that projects out into deep water with an upwelling current that is what attracts the pelagic superstars to the area as well as supporting a rich and diverse coral reef.
Best Time to Dive
You can dive Palau year round. The 'rainy season' is from about September to November but most dive sites are protected and you will still usually get more than enough sunshine. Trade winds blow in December to February. Typhoons are very rare in Palau.
What You Can See
Grey Reef Sharks, Hammerheads, Whitetip Reef Sharks, Manta Ray, Moorish Idols, Napoleon Wrasse, Barracuda, Turtles, Jacks, and much more. The coral in the area is also impressive with many large Gorgonian Fans and table coral.
Hook Dive: The dive is most often done with a "reef hook" which basically turns the diver into a 'kite' attached to the reef watching all of the action go by.
Liveaboards are a popular option for diving this site and most leave from Koror. United Airlines (Continental) transferring through Guam is a good place to start looking for transport to Koror.
