We’ll moor to the buoy in 12m of water, over the central reef and descend here. Diving Blue Coral – names for, you guessed it, this site’s remarkable displays of blue Acropora coral – is entirely open-ended in terms of direction and depth. The reef begins at 10m and extends all the way out to 25m with 3 massive coral shelves and a number of pinnacles poking out of a sandy bottom and seagrass bed. So where do you want to go?
Stick to the shallows, and you’ll see turtles, morays, reef fish, rays, and invertebrates galore – especially nudibranchs, for which Blue Coral is particularly well-known. If we head down a little deeper, we’ll start to see schools of larger fish feeding over the reef, larger sponges and even more impressive soft and hard corals.
With sandy gullies separating the 3 finger reefs, most divers choose to dive one at a time, saving the others for future dives – there’s simply too much life at Blue Coral to cover it all at once.
This site is particularly great at night, since its varying depths and topography offer a variety of experiences, but its overall simple, sloping layout are easy to navigate.
