The Sapona


Last week I took my 14' Explorer to a wreck we call the Sapona. The Sapona is a concrete wreck that is half submerged and has beautiful marine life under the water and an incredible history during the rum running days to Florida and gun running to Cuba before a hurricane put her aground. The US Navy then used her for target practice so she would never sell contraband again... After diving the wreck, I free-dove several reefs and had the pleasure to sit through a beautiful sunset on the way home.

I have been using the board to explore our incredible mangrove areas, we teach free-diving during our wild dolphin weeks here and I can pack all my gear on the Explorer, dive all the reefs in our Bimini area. I am able to do deep drops with the board floating above as a safety platform in the Gulf stream. In a few weeks, when our season starts we will be using it to play with our wild dolphin pods here in Bimini
