Southwest of the airport inside of Naval Base Guam, the snorkeling at Gab Gab Beach yields plenty of colorful coral and a wide range of reef life. This shore-accessed dive site is a good place for beginning snorkelers to explore. Keep your eyes out for the resident sea turtles, unicorn fish, sea anemones, moorish idols, sergeant majors and squid.

To reach the Guam snorkeling by air, fly into the Antonio B. Won Pat International Airport (GUM) which is located in the middle of the island. The Gab Gab Beach snorkeling dive site is located on the south shore of Apra Harbor.

While the dry season is typically January to June, the best snorkeling on Guam is during the months of May through August. The highest water clarity can be found if there is an incoming tide during the morning. While snorkeling in Guam, keep an eye out for green sea turtles, hawksbill turtles and dozens of species of sharks. Overall, there are over 700 species of reef fish and over 300 species of coral on the fringing reefs. Most snorkelers stay within the fringing reef since there is usually a strong current just beyond the reef. There are a couple lesser well-known snorkeling dive sites off the east coast of Guam, which should only be attempted during the local summer months and then only with extreme care.

Overall, Gab Gab Beach is the 17th most popular snorkel dive spot of all 17 snorkeling dives in Guam.
