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.

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

If you take the tour with the #1 Water Adventure center in BImini on TripAdvisor; BIMINI UNDERSEA, tipping is optional, but if you think they did a great job $5 - $10 per person is enough
