Bimini landmark

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.

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

We rented a boat and snorkelled around the Sapona. There were many varieties of fish - it was peaceful and beautiful. Crystal clear water!
