Discover Scuba Diving at the Underwater Museum in Cancun

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Begin this Discover Scuba Diving experience at a centrally-located meeting point in Cancun that’s walking distance from many Zona Hotelera accommodations. Learn about the basics of equipment and safety during a dive theory session led by PADI-certified instructors, then suit up and enter the shallow end of a swimming pool in full diving gear.

    Make your ocean dive at the Underwater Museum of Art, or MUSA, where more than 500 life-size sculptures are fixed to the seabed. Sculptures are made from coral-friendly materials, so the museum may interact with the natural world, and the artwork forms part of a complex reef structure.
