SS Sapona was a concrete-hulled cargo steamer that ran aground near Bimini during a hurricane in 1926. The wreck of the ship is easily visible above the water, making it a great photo magnet.

SS Sapona Shipwreck

Today, the SS Sapona Shipwreck is used as both a navigational landmark for boaters and a popular dive site for avid snorkel or scuba divers. It is also a good place to see tropical fish and sharks attracted to it as an artificial reef.

The shipwreck lies in 17 foot deep water, 4 miles south of Bimini Island in the Bahamas. Military target practice and the weather have stripped the hull of most of its concrete. The wreck is a very popular diving site since it is in such shallow water and attracts a multitude of fish that will allow you to take endless photos that you can share on social media.
