Sapona Dive Site in Bimini, Bahamas:
The 270-foot Sapona was built by Henry Ford in 1911. She served as a troop transport for just one trip during World War I. After the war, the Sapona was used by rumrunners between the Bahamas and Florida during Prohibition. Some say she was anchored and turned in to a private drinking and gambling club or simply a storage warehouse for rum. A hurricane in the late 1920s drove the ship aground between South Bimini and Cat Cay, where she only partially submerged.
Today, the Sapona is very popular with divers and snorklers. A large portion of the ship remains above water. With such a shallow depth it is a great place for beginning divers to practice wreck-diving.
