Originally named after the schools of Sabalos / Tarpon that still can occasionally be seen here. Sabalos is one of the most demanding of the shallow reef dives due to the strong currents which are frequent. As soon as you descend, swim to where the reef meets the sand and stay close to the bottom. You will be more protected from the currents by moving along the edge of the reef. If you swim at a distance from this edge, the current can carry you over the top of the reef whereby, you will miss the high points of the dive. The reef consists of healthy hard and soft corals of all variations. There are many kinds of fish and starfish on the sand. Near the end of this dive you will find a small cavern for exploration. The top of the reef is at an ideal depth for your safety stop and often large snappers are seen here.
