Underwater Sculptures, St. George's

4.0
#1 of 7 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.

  • It is a good diving snorkeling site which is one of the must see things in Grenada. The statues are reminiscent of the concrete people in Pompeii. They do look a bit creepy. That said it's a very inte...  more »
  • I took a morning snorkeling trip to the sculptures. I enjoy snorkeling around reefs more, but this was something different and I would recommend it.  more »
  • Very disappointed. Some of the sculptures are broken and surrounding area has very limited selection of fish. If your tight for time/money don't bother. Just go to a beach and see more  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.
  • 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.
  • A definite must see. Tour guides were friendly and knowledgeable. Weather was less than cooperative but still enjoyed my visit.
  • Very interesting snorkeling area led by a great team on a catamaran trip. Would go again.
