The Sapona is a concrete ship in the middle of the ocean! The water was beautiful! Great place to go for snorkeling or just plain fun! Be sure to jump off of the ship into the water for an adrenaline rush!

Interesting part of history of how this ship came underwater. Snorkeling at the Sapona is one of the highlights of visiting Bimini.

Great location to snorkel and jump of the old ship. Sank in 1926 and used for bombing training during WW11. Very fun to do by boat.

You have to go by boat and the trip is well worth it. Bring snorkeling gear and sunscreen! There are interesting fish everywhere and little sting rays that swim right up to you and are harmless, unless you step on them.

Beautiful dive. Tons of sea life. If you are brave you can jump off the wreck. Has fun swimming through the wreck. Shallow dive. Easy for beginners. Would definitely go again.

A great dive spot, lots of fish and a shark or two! Well worth it.. Shallow but yet exciting for pic takers! Careful not to touch the ship with bare hands... rust and sharp edges.

If coming by your own boat it will be difficult to anchor due to all the other boats. Try to visit on non-weekends

Great place to get in the water and see a diverse array of fish and wildlife. There can be bull sharks in the area but they tend to be very friendly
