Island Watersports are delighted to be awarded Best Operating Company and Best Eco Dive Guide in the Museo Atlantico Winter 2017-2018 awards.
Grateful thanks to all our divers for completing the survey and providing feedback.
The Museo Atlantico dive is becoming one of our most popular dives and it is not difficult to see why.
Since the first installation in 2016 the sealife around the statues has grown to provide an amazing display of marine life.
We dive the museum every week of the year so if you haven’t visited yet give us a call. Set in an area of 50 x 50meters at around 12 meters depth this is an ideal dive site suitable for all level of divers.
Did you know that you can also dive the Museo Atlantico even if you have never dived before?
Ask us about our Museo Atlantico Experience for non divers, after two training dives you can enjoy a guided dive to the Museo Atlantico, Europes first underwater museum.
Museo Atlantico – Europes first underwater museum, created by artist Jason deCaires Taylor.
Since the first installations back in 2016, the Museo Atlantico has proved to be a very popular dive site and a ‘must do’ for many of our scuba diving visitors. At a depth of 14 meters this dive is suitable for all certified divers and now non divers have the opportunity to dive here too.
These latest pictures from our trip this week show how the flora and fauna are making the museum home.
Our guide Iain Irving was delighted to see a spiny sea star making it’s home on the girls head at the hybrid section, wrapping itself around the bun on the back of her head.
There is always plenty to see on this dive , Barracuda, Angel Sharks, Trigger Fish, Bastard Grunt and the Spiny Sea Star were the entertainers yesterday.
Now you can dive the Museo Atlantico even if you are not a certified diver, just complete 2 training dives with us and then you will be able to dive the museum.
