The snorkel tour begins with a boat ride to the "Silent Evolution" site off Isla Mujeres. You'll then have 40 minutes of snorkel time to enjoy the museum’s sculptures and the marine life that will swim your way. Then, another boat ride will take you back to the Cancun marina. A perfect way to start your day!

The newest and most spectacular addition to Cancun, the Underwater Sculpture Museum is an under-sea sculpture gallery of more than 400 figures. The monumental underwater sculptural museum was established in the surrounding waters of Cancun, Isla Mujeres and Punta Nizuc in 2009 by British artist Jason DeCaires Taylor. The project has sparked great interest worldwide and will be an ongoing project for years to come.

The main body of the museum is called "The Silent Evolution" and consists of 400 life-size figures molded in pH neutral clay. The main goal of the museum is preservation, so the clay promotes marine growth to form a complex structure inhabited and colonized by various forms of marine life. Eventually coral reef will form on each sculpture, making them change appearance over time.

The total museum installation occupies over 1,600 sq. feet (150 sq. meters) and weighs over 120 tons, and will one day form an artificial ecosystem where various fish and marine mammals will thrive.

Snorkelling in the sea was great and looking at the structures
The fish were so pretty in the reef

Fun - just the right amount of time too. You don't get as close to the sculptures as the photos lead you to believe though.
