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. The Mesoamerican Reef System that surrounds this island means you'll be sharing the water with thousands of underwater creatures, so keep your eyes peeled for manta rays, eels, and sea turtles.
