First word of advice is don't go if the waves are rough. We went right after a storm and it was quite scary. I'm a novice snorkeler and I was a bit worried. It was great to see a ship wreck since I had never seen one and seeing pieces of the wreck under water was great but there weren't... More

Loved it :) I've been here several time :) love swimming through the ship , and taking pictures. There are always a variety of species of fish swimming around !!!! You could climb on top of the ship and jump off , if you have the courage :) This is so relaxing ! There is nothing I disliked. Maybe just... More

With all the small boats anchored off the Sapona, it looked like a tail-gating party. The wreck is reasonably large, reasonably shallow water with some fish. You can swim in and out, but need to be careful of the metal edges and holes in the ship. There is a way/rope to get to the top of the wreck and jump... More

A must! Dive at the Sapona with Bimini Undersea. You can book your tour at the island or at the Hilton or even before to get special pricing.

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!!!
