MUSA continues to grow

This was absolutely amazing! Don't listen to what other negative reviews you may here about this dive. There is something amazing (and yes a little omninous) about diving to beautiful statues underwater. Look to see if you can find the telephone in the group of people ;)

Even if someone isn't a fan of museums, the combination of a a speed boat ride, scuba dive fun, swimming with beautiful fish, and scratching the coral decorated ocean floor in the clear, warm, aquamarine waters of this Underwater museum will make the whole trip worth taking

We dove this site with nautilus, and in all honesty I can see why someone snorkeling would find it unremarkable. Down at the bottom viewing the statues one can see the shapes, yes covered with a couple of years of ocean growth but not enough to be coral, the area is still very different and interesting, it does bring to mind the terra cotta warriors but is designed to be more in tune with the ocean. The statues you see on the net were photos taken at the time of placing the artwork, so no they no longer resemble the original photos they have become part of the ocean and are begining to teem with life. The new section of statues recently sunk are very clear and similar to the visuals you will find on the net

I went scuba diving and found this place really interesting! have never seen anything like it before and although it is man made it seems to blend in really well with fish and coral living happily amongst the statues. We only dived around the main part which was where most of the statues are located as well as a beetle car and a phone. The statues are slightly eerie but fascinating! I loved this and wish we had more time on the dive to explore more of it! probably would be rubbish if you snorkelled though as the museum is on the sea bed which is 10 metres deep!

My husband and I did this about two weeks ago and I wouldn't really call it a "museum" per se. There were a couple VWs, a large box (looked like a vampire bed to me, but most likely that's not what it was at all lol), maybe a few other things (the visibility wasn't the best at that time) and then the statues. We were snorkeling so we couldn't really get the full effect from the surface. There was one statue that looked up at you and it looked exactly like Forest Whitaker. Kinda creepy. I guess if you scuba dive you can see it a lot better, get some pics, and get more out of it. Maybe. It was cool to see and if I hadn't gone I would have wished I did, but I don't think I'll go again.
