So much fun! Lots of beautiful fish swimming around this sunken treasure. It has a ladder that you can climb and jump off at the top. If you're brave enough.....

One of the coolest experiences of the trip was snorkeling in this shipwreck. Beautiful fish abound. Some small spaces to navigate but well worth it.

Loved seeing this old shipwreck and letting my mind drift to how different things were back during prohibition and think of what could've gone on in the ship back then. Amazing site and snorkel opportunity. Must do while in Bimini!

Ship sits in about 15 feet of crystal clear blue water. You can snorkel the entire inside of the ship and see a lot of different fish and sea creatures. Great for beginner snorkelers since it is fairly shallow and the water is so clear....More

Sapona is easily reached by boat and offers good snorkling as well as popular climbing if and jumping off shipwreck. Teenagers get a thrill out of it. Best if combined with shark diving/snorkling off the reefs nearby , check Neal Watson

Fish, fish, fish, colors, lobsters, corals and sponges! One of the best sites in Bimini. When travelling in Bimini it is a MUST event!

Great dive and snorkeling shipwreck experience. A few sections, lots of fish and plenty to see. Have been here several times and love the history associated with Sapona.

We did the sapona with our kids. We were concerned about the winds but it wasn't bad at all. My husband saw a ray. At the back of the ship we saw a good amount of fish but the number of types isn't a ton....More

Fun place to go on a boat. Climb on the wreck and jump into the water. Next time I'll bring water shoes and gloves because the metal shards are rusty and hot...not so kind on the skin.

Over the course of several years of cruising the Bahamas in our boat we have visited the Sapona many times. There are always a number of fish in the area and generally you will see a shark or two. The wreck itself was a concrete...More

I recommend the #1 Water Adventure center in BImini on TripAdvisor; BIMINI UNDERSEA, this tour costs $69 + tax per person including snorkel gear rental.
