Gab Gab Second Reef
Slightly more challenging than Gab-Gab beach on Naval Station, diving to Gab-Gab II begins with a long snorkel or blue water dive out from the main GabGab reef.
Compass directions: The reef is approximately 230 yards directly north of the Glas monument at the Gab Gab parking area. The site is used by the Atlantis submarine, which allows tourists to view the reef.
The top of the reef is about 50 feet, where large schooling fish can be found. The Atlantis operation provides food stations on the reef so they are quite tame and will swarm around divers.
There are several varieties of anemones on the reef, and sponges and soft corals also make this a very interesting dive. From time to time there are several nurse sharks that can be seen arond the feeding stations.
CAUTION: Although they are very docile do not touch them and always leave a path for them to eascape.
If you are in a private boat or coming from the beach, advise the Atlantis crew that you would like to dive in the area before submerging. The submarine itself is interesting to look at, but due to the thrust motors being outside the hull, do not get closer than 50 feet.
