Uncover an underwater world brimming with marine life and historical artifacts at Bay Islands Underwater Museum. Snorkel in the warm waters and discover artifacts that span thousands of years, including a Spanish galleon, pre-Columbian figures, canoes from African settlers, and a submerged Mayan cemetery.
