Gab Gab II. For years, I've been diving Gab Gab, but never found Gab Gab II until today. After reaching the wall at Gab Gab, head straight out to the mooring line for the tender boat and Atlantis Submarine. If you're not exceptional on air, you may want to swim this far on the surface, as you're only half-way there. I swam out below, and the bottom drops out of sight to more than 120 feet deep. But after about 10 minutes of swimming, the second reef appears. This reef is in pristine condition. There are three 'igloos' or fish feeding stations set up by the submarine company. In the early morning, nurse sharks come to feed and join bat fish and the large black ulua (I was told to keep my fingers to myself or they would bite them, as the ulua are used to being fed sausages). There are several nice anemones here, and the second reef is really a sea mound that drops off in all directions to more than 100 feet. Exceptional dive, and the submarine cruising by just 20 feet away or so is a bonus, although the whine of its electrical engines makes for a less serene dive. Just watch out swimming through the submarine's path and the boat channel, as Apra Harbor is a Navy base, and large vessels do cruise through regularly.
