Where am I Being Pushed "Overboard"?

This was a fun day- swimming, snorkeling, climbing and jumping. It's a really popular spot for both sailors and power boaters. The map is a hint. Where was this photo taken?

Looks like the Sapona, south of Bimini.
Looks like fun!

You must have been there! Yes, you're correct! Sapona in Bimini, Bahamas. Do you have photos there too?

Been there a few times. Back in the fifties, you could find bullets and practice bombs left from WW2 when it was used as a practice target.

Have dove/snorkeled the Sapona many times, but many years ago.

In the 70s you could spear 3 lobsters in one shot the way they were lined up under there.
