This famous dive site is one of the best dives in Palau. Most of the time it has a very strong and unpredictable current. The corner has exactly the right conditions that attracts sharks, where most of the divers are coming for. If you don't like sharks then it is better not to go here.
When swimming to Blue Corner you will have the wall on your side. Once at the plateau you will cross on top of the reef and use your reef hook to attach yourself to the reef. This hook is also important to make sure that the reef is damaged in a minimal way. Hanging there in the current for ten minutes or more just watching the action - this is as natural as you will observe sharks. Sharks will circle over and over. The most frequent species of shark you will see are the female gray reef shark and the white tip shark. But occasionally you will see male gray reef sharks and other species. This dive site is often rated as one of the best in the world. The formation of the reef, sheer walls and the large number of schooling fish make it a truly unique experience. There are three mooring buoys located along the reef. The eastern, central and western buoy. The current tells you from which direction you will start diving this site. Most of the time, divers will begin the dive while their boat is moored to either the eastern or western buoy. The central buoy is rarely used to start the dive.
There is a lot of wildlife at this site. Sharks, Tuna, Wahoo, Hawks Bill and Eagle Rays. But also Green turtles, Giant Groupers and Barracuda. The fish here are likely to come very close. Blue Corner is also famous for its photo opportunities, because according to the direction of the current, the pelagic fish will switch corners all the time. Some of the permanent residents at Blue corner are Snappers, schools of Jacks, Redtooth Triggerfish, Pyramid Butterflyfish and Chevron barracudas. These last ones usually sit on top of the plateau. There are also huge numbers of small tropical fish and Palaus famous Napoleon Wrasse. Occasionally some infrequently visitors are spotted. These include Great Hammerheads, Mantas, Sailfish, Whale Sharks, Marlin and whales.
