Visit 470 underwater statues! This is one of the best snorkel tours you can do in Cancun! Our snorkel in MUSA tour offers a unique excursion where you can visit statues under the sea, close to the Manchones reef area. Life sized statues brought to life by coral and algae as well as marine life and many many fish.
The coral reef sites in Cancun have received a huge influx of visitors over the years and this has taken its toll on the natural areas and ecosystems. Snorkel in 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.
Our Snorkel in the Cancun Underwater Museum tour offers a unique snorkel excursion to visit the underwater statues located beside Manchones reef area. There are three MUSA locations in Cancun this tour takes you to the largest. Between the coast of Cancun and Isla Mujeres lies Manchones reef and it is now home to 455 of the statues.
This 5-hour tour provides you with two snorkel experiences, first in the Cancun underwater museum and then we go to Manchones Reef. Both sites are to a depth of 9-11 meters where you will also see the schools of fish, turtles, rays, etc.
The sculptures that you could see in this area include; The Cross of the Bay, Man on Fire, Dream Collector, El Bacab, Anthropocene (VW Car), Silent Evolution (450 statues), Thing Blue (Beetle Car) and The Promise. We will do our utmost to make sure you see the majority (weather and visibility permitting).
Today algae cover these eerie statues as well as polyps of Coral, the plan worked and Cancun is now home to the biggest artificial reef in the world.
