Product Description

Enjoy snorkeling in the Cancun Underwater Museum (MUSA) and watching over 470 underwater statues. This is one of the best tours you can do in Cancun!

Over 470 underwater statues in Cancun, you won’t believe your eyes

The coral reef sites in Cancun have received a huge influx of visitors over the years and this has taken it’s toll on the natural areas and ecosystems.

The Cancun underwater museum  is  a unique way to draw people away from the reefs and create an artificial one where coral can grow and marine life can breed.

The museum in Cancun now consists of 475 submerged sculptures and there are plans for more!

Our Snorkel in the Museum tour offers a unique snorkel excursion to visit the underwater statues located beside Manchones reef area. Manchones is located between the coast of Cancun and Isla Mujeres and is now home to 455 of the statues.

During our 2 and a half hour underwater museum snorkeling tour you will also see the schools of fish, turtles, rays and other sea life that inhabit the area. The museum provides the essential shelter and food they need in order to thrive, grow and of course breed.

Some of the sculptures that can be seen during the excursion are the 450 life sized statues collectively called the Silent Evolution.

Most of these models were locals from Puerto Morelos, a nearby fishing village to the south of Cancun. A 5 year old boy sat for over an hour whilst he was covered with marine cement, other statues were made from a pregnant lady, a nun, a local fisherman as well as a model and a famous British TV presenter. Others statues to be seen here are Man on Fire, Dream Collector, Bacab, Anthropocene and The Banker.

Today these eerie statues are covered with algae and polyps of Coral, the plan worked and Cancun is now home to the biggest artificial reef in the world.

    We took the Museum Tour and had a great time and value. After snorkeling at the Museum we went to another location and snorkeled there. It was a god 3 hours. The tour operators did a great job and even let me drive the boat when we were in the open ocean. When we got back we went parasailing and had a wonderful time. This was our second time to the Cancun area and trust Aquaworld for our excursions rather than the people selling tours on the beach.
