Very accessible wreck of a concrete ship now deteriorating south of Bimini. Good snorkeling but be very careful of all the sharp protruding metal.

Don't miss this dive or snorkel sight on your trip to Bimini. It is safe and usually does not have much of a current. You can often see large schools of a variety of fish. It is breaking up and may not last much longer....More

We traveled to Bimini this summer with friends who'd been many times before and they took us to this cool spot. Our kids enjoyed snorkeling around the concrete ship. I was such a cool structure and neat to read the history behind it as well.

The Sapona is a must while in Bimini. It is easily done. Take snorkel gear and wear gloves. The Sapona is rusty I wear gloves so I didn't cut my hands. Take a underwater camera. This ship is withering away to the elements.

While a good portion of this wreck is above water and slowly succumbing to the elements, there's much to be seen below. Great fish populations. Accessible by snorkle. Careful about surge and all the sharp rusting metal around you.

Visited the Sapona as part of an excursion. The snorkeling was great, beautiful reef, fish etc... Snorkeling inside the Sapona was something I'll never forget. Be careful with fire coral and jelly fish, but other than that, nothing to worry about.

We hiked up the ship and free-jumped from it. What a experience! Being inside is interesting as well - you never know when you'll see some big or small fish and what it might do to/with you, so...that's quite an adrenaline rush.

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