Dove Christ of the Abyss with Horizon Divers and beautiful site and surrounding reef! Guarded by barracuda, this site features beautiful coral, fish, and a serene view of the Christ statue. A must see if diving in this area!

This was the first time we dove to see the Christ of the Abyss statue. The whole family did the dive and our five year old grandson snorkeled above, looking down at us. Great experience. The dive is easy for experts and new divers alike....More

This is an alright dive site, if your not Religious then your probably better doing another Molasses reef dive. I dove this site with Rainbow Reef divers and truly enjoyed it, I just with the plaque was kept clean so it was legible.

saw this statue 40 years ago and happy that it is still in good shape. the captain gave a good warning about not touching due to fire coral.

We did not see any or hear of any issues or concerns. I would be more concerned with the barracudas though.

I would recommend to check with them... not sure if there is a certain time of the year which visibility is bad, but the attraction itself is pretty nice!
