Evaluation

*Average:    4.44
Gear up in the parking lot next to the stairs that lead into the water by the swim area (demarked by floats). Grab hold of the stainless steel railing, so you don't slip on the steps or upon entering the water. Swim straight out towards the Apra Harbor from the entry, towards the area where the Atlantis Submarine surfaces. About a 5-minute swim from the entry, the reef drops from 20 feet to >100 feet. The visibility is generally very good here (75-100+ feet), and typically there are no waves or current in the harbor. The plate corals, sponges, assorted hard corals, and animal life is great here. I've often seen a turtle here (very skittish), white tip reef sharks and moray eels. Just to the left about 200 feet from the damaged reef (looks like a ship's anchor dragged along the reef and down the slope in the distant past), there's a carpet of anemones with the requisite clownfish. Straight out, past the sandy bottom is a second reef, where Atlantis Submarine feeds the fish and cruises by (Gab Gab II). Excellent dive. Highly recommended. Every time I return to Guam, this one's at the top of my list!
