When the current is slack is the best time to snorkle here. The sunny side of the ship is an aquarium, literally. It's amazing. While your snorkeling and looking down, remember to look up toward the surface of the water...you'll see so much~~

Enjoyable family activity. Many different species of fish seen. Especially memorable were the sting ray. Water was a little choppy when we went, but we were still able to enter the wreck safely. Nice spot for first time snorkelers.

The Sapona is a concrete ship in the middle of the ocean! The water was beautiful! Great place to go for snorkeling or just plain fun! Be sure to jump off of the ship into the water for an adrenaline rush!

Interesting part of history of how this ship came underwater. Snorkeling at the Sapona is one of the highlights of visiting Bimini.

Great location to snorkel and jump of the old ship. Sank in 1926 and used for bombing training during WW11. Very fun to do by boat.

You have to go by boat and the trip is well worth it. Bring snorkeling gear and sunscreen! There are interesting fish everywhere and little sting rays that swim right up to you and are harmless, unless you step on them.

Beautiful dive. Tons of sea life. If you are brave you can jump off the wreck. Has fun swimming through the wreck. Shallow dive. Easy for beginners. Would definitely go again.

It's not very expensive, you can dive or snorkel Best Place to use the Bimini Big Game They are great! I'm sure they have a price list on web site... Have fun
