Dive Conditions

Palau has a tropical climate year-round with rain throughout the year, although the rains are heavier in the months of July to October which reduces the visibility to an average of 15m and can cause weather conditions that may interfere with diving.
It can be difficult to get reef sharks to come close to you while you are hooked in at Blue Corner. Unhooking and swimming down into or over the lip of the reef can get you closer to sharks, but you also risk the ire of other dive groups who think your bubbles will scare away the critters. It's best not to chase sharks. Instead, find a good spot where they can swim by you in the current. Night dives are often the best time to put on a macro lens, as a wide range of reclusive creatures emerge from the reef after dark.
Water Temperature ranges between 81-84 degrees Fahrenheit. Visibility usually Ranges from 50 - 150+ feet. During the dry season, the visibility is often in excess of 100 feet.
