Underwater Sculptures, St. George's

4.0
#1 of 6 in Museums in Grenada
Head beneath the surface to see an interesting and unusual art and conservation project at Underwater Sculptures. Created by British sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor, the park features over 65 individual sculptures, with some positioned together to form a scene, and some standing alone. Open to artistic interpretation, the sculptures have been designed to promote the regrowth of coral and other aquatic life in the area. The hope is that the sculptures will provide a sanctuary for marine life once coral polyps attach to the concrete statues, and alleviate the intense pressure on the ecosystem because of tourism and hurricanes. Explore the underwater park on a scuba diving, snorkeling, or glass-bottomed boat excursion.

  • This was fun. The sculptures are interesting. I would suggest a guide to make sure you don’t miss any of the sculpture pieces as they are spread out over the ocean floor.  more »
  • A decent place to snorkel but not the best and watch the currents. As Underwater Parks go this is worth a visit.  more »
  • Our group of 13 divers dove through the Sculpture Park as our last dive of the day while diving in the Grenada Protected Marine Park. The statues are in various states of being converted to coral reef...  more »

  • One of the most amazing experiences. They are not very deep so you can snorkel and dive down. If you want to get really close, then scuba. The guide took us to each sculpture so that we wouldn't miss anything. Really amazing. We went when it was raining and cloudy and could still see them clearly. My kids LOVED this experience. That's them diving down in the photos.
  • We went with Seafaris powerboat which took us to the site. Maybe the sculptures would have been more visible on a sunny day. Our day was cloudy and rainy, so visibility was limited. The statues were a surprise when you finally spotted them, and it was kind of interesting the be snorkeling and all of a sudden, you come upon them, mysteriously in the deep. It was neat to come across one unexpectedly, and there were a surprising number of the statues. Some were too deep to make out well. We were more drawn to the abundant sealife that we came across, lobster, eel, barracuda, water snake, squid, as well as the usual schools of tang, parrotfish, etc.
  • A definite must have snorkeling experience here in Grenada. The first of its kind and a lasting impression.
  • This is an amazing place. I only wish that i had the ability to take photos underwater. Believe me, it is alor more facinating that these simple photos here as i see on google. It is just amazing. Also the kids loved it.
  • Sadly, it was nothing like the photos I had seen in brochures and online. A lot of the sculptures were broken and had fallen down. There were few fish and what coral and vegetation there was looked like it was dying. There are no markers restricting the area to protect swimmers, and a tour boat from the local Sandals resort almost ran over me as I was snorkeling.
