Neal Watson’s Bimini Scuba Center in collaboration with Bimini Sands Resorts double dares you to join us this Halloween season for The Bahamas’ first ever underwater haunted house.

As the sun sets and the Halloween moon rises, Bimini Scuba Center will be setting sail into the heart of the Bermuda Triangle for the thrill ride of a lifetime. Divers and snorkelers fascinated by the occult and other freakish tales of mystery and murder are in for “trick” – or should we say, “treat”.

The Sapona, or concrete ship, is already the island’s most storied and haunting wreck, making it the ideal destination for a night of ghouls and goblins on the high seas. Jutting out of the water at a height of forty feet, this majestic ship was first run aground in the Great Hurricane of 1926 and then later used to store illegal rum during the United States’ prohibition years. Aside from making an appearance in one of the James Bond Novels and being fired upon by George Bush Senior in a training exercise, this sunken ship was in fact the intended destination of Flight 19 just before it disappeared into the Devil’s Triangle.

This season, the Sapona is debuting as The Bahamas’ first ever underwater haunted house. The spectral swim through the Sapona will feature devilish dens, lurid lairs, hidden treasure and so much more, if you dare.

The Sapona Haunted House will be open Wednesday October 30th. The boat will leave from the Bimini Scuba Center (adjacent to the Beach Club) at dusk, around 7pm. Participants must be 16 years and older. $85.00 for divers. $39.00 for snorkelers. Tickets can be purchased via email at or toll-free at (800) 737-1007 or locally at (242) 448-6606.

After the dive, freak-seekers are invited to Mackey’s Sand Bar for their annual Halloween Party, which will include costume prizes, dancing, drinking and karaoke. Happy Hour kicks off at 3:00 pm for those who are not brave enough to venture into haunted seas.
