“Sapona wreck in Bimini”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Great place for snorkelling and a very easy but fun dive.
I was there diving with a friend and we loved it. The boat is stuck on the sand and almost half of it outside the water but it is very nice to be able to enter inside.
Plenty of fish to see too.

“Very interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Took a tour around the ship. Our guide was very knowledgeable and We found in very interesting. We did not snorkel as the waves were very rough. The divers loved it. To bad that it is now covered in graffito.

“An interesting place to snorkel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Katie and Grant at Bimini Sands took us on a snorkeling trip, which included the wreck of the Sapona -- a rum runner's 'floating warehouse' during Prohibition. You can swim through it and around it -- very interesting and easy to get to.
