Ever visited an underwater museum before? This is one of the best ways to experience sea life in Cancun, with so much more to see than you could ever imagine. If you have an underwater camera, you’re going to want to bring it with you, because this is a tour like no other…

Start your tour by arriving at the biggest marina in Latin America. You’ll have free access to lockers to leave all your belongings there before sailing out on a boat ride to Manchones, an artificial reef and the largest Musa location. Swimming in real reef areas can be damaging to these spaces of natural beauty, so this artificial reef has been created to allow you all the best bits of the experience without causing any harm to underwater sea life.

Put on your snorkel gear and jump into the water, ready to explore this fascinating underwater museum. Everything is taken care of, so there is no need to worry about bringing your own gear or equipment. Just relax and enjoy this wonderful tour. There are over 470 underwater statues in Cancun, with at least 455 of them located right here at Manchones. You’ll see the statues first, from the Silent Evolution to a VW Car known as Anthropocene. Take it all in, because this is one of the once-in-a-lifetime scenes you don’t see often!

Then it’s time to snorkel in the biggest artificial reef in the world, with incredible coral reef formations and an absolute abundance of beautiful marine life. From fish to rays to turtles, admire these amazing creatures in their natural habitat as they swim past and under you on part two of this tour. You’ll be amazed at how real this artificial reef looks, where coral grows, and marine life can breed. It is an incredible sight and something so worth doing during your time in Cancun.

After your snorkel experience, sail back to land to enjoy the rest of your day. This tour is one of the most unique snorkel experiences in Cancun, from the algae-covered statues to all the marine life you can see.
