Great snorkeling

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!

Have dived and snorkeled Sapona many times over the years. Lots to see, plenty of fish and good visibility.

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.

A step back in time, one of the last concrete ships remaining. Amazing Maine Life swimming everywhere, you can be a diver or just snorkel and enjoy it just the same. The water is crystal clear and warm to the skin, so wonderful. I think everyone should enjoy this time travel under the sea.

This is a must see if you have access to a boat and are in Bimini. It's easy snorkeling in and around the concrete ship. The sea life is abundant and the sea anemones are beautiful. Make sure to check the current before you anchor so you don't drift into the boat. Lots of exposed rebar, so be super careful... More
