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

A must do! You will enjoy just swimming through The Sapona and wondering what this ship and its crew experienced!

If you've never seen a ship wreck then you have to come to Sapona! Great snorkeling and really one of the coolest things that we have ever seen!

Sapona was built by Heney Ford around 1920, blown aground in 1926 Hurricane. Snorkling through center of ship is full of sea life. WW Two Bullets can still be found. A Nice 2 hour Snorkling Trip with Lunch.
