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.

This 3 hour tour provides you with a 45 minute snorkel experience in the museum where you will also see the schools of fish, turtles, rays etc etc. After this, subject to timing and weather conditions, we will stop off at a second site which is full of marine life. El Farito is a famous snorkel area just off the coast of Isla Mujeres where you will enjoy a 20 minute visit; the perfect way to round off your MUSA experience.

The sculptures that you could see in this area include; The Cross of the Bay, Man on Fire, Dream Collector, El Bacab, Antropocene (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). This ever changing environment alters the appearance of the statues constantly, the sculptures require algae to provide a base for the fragile coral as well as food for the fish. Some of the sculptures are already showing coral growth and we look forward to more in the near future.

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.

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.

    Fun and beautiful! We took the snorkeling tour, the tour lasted about 4 hours. There is only one departure per day (9:30am), one important thing, on top of your tickets, there is a USD$10 dock fee per person, which is a government tax they have to collect before letting get on the boat.

    The boat ride to the site is about 45 minutes, the staffs super friendly and nice! One thing I must say, the sea is kind of rough so prepare yourself if you easily getting seasick, there were about 25ish people in our group today, some people got quite seasick that they couldn’t even get into the sea to snorkel by the time we got to the MUSA sites, so get yourself a pair of motion sickness wrist bands or take some motion sickness pills before you go!

    The trip stopped at two different sites, first was to see the underwater sculptures (more rough sea), second near Isla Mujeres (calmer sea) to see corals and fish. I think the the price is quite reasonable. I must say since we were snorkeling with life jacket on, we could only see the sculptures from up top, not very clearly, if you want to see the details of the sculptures, do the scuba diving your instead.

    Sun Screens are not allowed at this trip because they are harmful to the reefs, so if you are sensitive to the sun or easily gotten sunburns, you may want to wear long sleeves water gears!
