In an ethereal setting, the old concrete ship rusted in the aquamarine waters off Bimini. 15-20 feet underwater the old ship provided a superb snorkeling location. We saw stingrays, grouper, and many other fish. A must see. Do not miss.

My mother, my best friend and I did this tour. Even though I REALLY wanted to do the dolphin swim, they objected and this seemed like the more family-friendly option. We boarded the ship, which was fairly big for the group. The crew was fairly...More

A 20 minute boat ride from Resorts World. Very cool, old reinforced concrete ship that run aground some 90 years ago. Fun to jump from and explore. I'd recommend wearing water shoes though if possible, as I burnt my feet pretty bad from walking on...More

Very cool. Great to look at but if you dive be aware of the current. It is strong and will carry you away quickly

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.

I recommend the #1 Water Adventure center in BImini on TripAdvisor; BIMINI UNDERSEA, this tour costs $69 + tax per person including snorkel gear rental.
