The Sapona is a nice place to explore and spend a few hours snorkeling around it and inside of it. Best to do it at high tide, the water is crystal clear and usually lots of fish and at times a Manta Ray or two frequent the wreck. There is a rope you can climb to the top of it... More

If you want to have a fun snorkel adventure, I recommend booking with Bimini Under the Sea at Resorts World and going out with Jean-Luc and Jonah on Jean-Luc's beautiful sailboat. The boat ride through the bluest water you'll ever see was wonderful and you got to see both the North and the South Islands on the way to the... More

A must snorkel spot. Beautiful and clear water with lots of marine life. A bit offshore from South Bimini. Must get there on private boat or charter.

Great place to snorkel. No need to dive because shallow enough. Need to book through Big Game - Corey and the guys will take you through and all over the wreck. They will even help you climb to the top and jump - which is a must!!!

We sailed to the Sapona as part of a sailing training exercise with BWSS. The concrete-hulled wreck is easily visible above the water and a great dive. Beware off the fire coral inside the wreck

Had a great meal with great service. Had the filet and lobster tail. Beef was not very good but the lobster tail was great. Wife had the two lobster tails and that would be what I would order next time. Service was very good here.

I have never seen much of marine life around the Sapona ship, but just north are the 3 Sisters rocks, the marine life there is incredible, so I have stopped going to Sapona.

I would have liked to see a bigger variety of fish. however we did see starfish, other fish and clams. The water is very clear.

Dove this shallow wreck in January with Neal Watson and it was surprisingly spectacular! We weren't sure the sealife and photos would be that great at such a shallow site but we were wrong. I've never seen so many colorful sleeping fish in such a variety, plus enough lobsters to feed an army. Lots of Southern and Round Stingrays who... More

Really enjoyed snorkeling and swimming with kids around this wreck. Very enjoyable. They talked about it for weeks.
