“Must do trip!”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

Pictures don't do justice to the actual experience of snorkeling or diving amongst the structures and beautiful reef.

“Unique”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

This was a neat and different snorkel site to see. We had seen the museum on a travel channel program and didn't want to miss seeing it.

“Cool sculptures not a lot of sea life”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

This is a pretty unique place with a variety of sculptures. Not a lot of close up visibility on a snorkeling tour, but great on a scuba dive trip because you can get up close and personal. Don't expect to see too much sea life or a wide variety of life because the sea floor is pretty flat and sandy. You can find some really large lobsters under the VW beetle sculpture and under some of the other sculptures as well. Trust me they are hard to miss. Still a must see because of the meaning and history behind the sculptures.

“go see this!”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

This is so cool - it's an underwater sculpture of 300 concrete people that is slowly turning into a reef. It's only 14 feet deep so you can snorkel it as well as dive it. Go see it!!!!
