“Epic for those who seek Adventure....”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

Cool spot to snorkel, climb and jump!!!

Went with a group of friends and we then reflected on the experience as epic!

We initially went with a little fear of snorkeling it because we were afraid it was going to be super deep and with sharks...

The snorkeling part was pretty cool there were fish nothing too crazy but enough to make it cool.

Snorkeling inside the ship is really neat... I never imagined I would climb it and jump off!!!!

There is a rope already installed... It can be a little challenging but for those who dare it will well worth it!!!

Totally recommend one of my favorite spots!

“Great Shallow Snorkle”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

Very cool. Lots of fish. Not very deep. Can swim through the wreck, and explore inside. Lots of fun. Can only get there by boat. Wear gloves, try not to touch to much. Some fire coral, some jagged edges. Lots to explore. If this review helps your planning, please leave me a helpful vote...ENJOY

“Awesome sight”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

This concrete ship is still visible above water. It's a nice snorkel or dive. We did both.
We saw lots of different fish.

“Fun wreck; unique dive”
Reviewed February 11, 2014

Site could just as easily be snorkeled, but diving the wreck allows a more detailed exploration of the lower hull and it's inhabitants. Really fun and unique spot.

“Great snorkeling and shallow diving site”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

The Sapona is a great snorkeling and shallow diving site with a variety of marine life and surprises like .50 caliber shell casings. Because of the relatively shallow depth it is easy to have extermely bottom times. The depth allows snorkelers to spend time on the bottom to see corals and smaller maine animals up close.
