What you'll do
Experience your first ever scuba dive by submerging into a mysterious underwater gallery of sunken life sized statues. Dive pros will take you through the class in a pool (1 1/2 hours) and then it's time to jump to the ocean for your 1 tank MUSA dive. The Cancun Underwater Museum (MUSA) was first created in 2009. After seeing the marine cement statues on dry land, I knew they would be magnificant once in the water and algae and coral had the chance to grow. The sinking of hundreds of tons of cement is no easy task, we helped with the operation from driving the boats whilst towing statues to guiding them down to their new home in the sea. I am proud to have been part of the creation of this man made reef as today, 9 years later our natural reefs are starting to breathe again after hurricane damage and visitors took their toll. Float around errie statues inhabited by marine life and fish for approximately 40 minutes. The sculptures are covered with algae and coral which attracts fish, lobsters, rays, crabs and sea turtles. Sometimes you find yourself staring at the sculptures expecting them to move, but don't worry, I don't think they come alive!
