MUSA came highly recommended, but at the end of the day, it's just underwater statues with a little bit of reef growing on them. I hadn't been diving in a few years, so it worked well as a refresher course, but the reality is that...More

We booked with aqua world and had an amazing time along with great tour guides. I can’t say enough about the ease of the snorkel and accessibility for most ages. Would definitely go again.

This is an amazing idea and as its been around a few years now it has taken on its own life with fish living all over the place.

The current was pretty strong and waves big the day we went so we didn't get to spend as much time as we'd have liked, but it was fascinating to see all the underwater sculptures there.

We did a boat dive at MUSA underwater museum, mostly visible at 30 ft. It was a good dive to do with our kids, one of whom had never tried boat (only shore) dives. There was no current--simply waves and some fire coral (don't touch)!...More

In order to really see the statues and experience the underwater exhibit you should be scuba diving, not snorkeling.
