The Cancun Underwater Museum is the worlds most famous underwater sculpture museum. Scuba dive in this incredible place devoted to conservation of the area.
This eco-project known as MUSA began in 2009 and now holds over 470 life sized statues
The idea was to create an artificial reef featuring sculptures made from marine concrete. First algae forms on the underwater statues and then the tiny polyps begin to grow. Some of the figures are now covered with algae and others have some beautiful reef formations making the facial features distorted and eerie looking. The underwater museum Cancun is one of a kind.
Our 1 tank 28ft MUSA dive will take you to the main part of the Cancun museum known as the Silent Evolution.
There are 450 statues here and their eye formation is as such in order to protect the statues and of course the marine life and coral from increment weather conditions. The statues were made and placed with only two things in mind – conserving our existing natural reefs of Cancun and providing new havens for fish and sea life.
At the same time Cancun diving just got more interesting and this is not to be missed during your vacation.
Other statues from the museum in Cancun that can be seen during this dive are Anthropocene (a life sized VW Beetle car), The Bankers, Urban Reef, Bio Map, Bacab and Timebomb.
