Description:

Combine your love for diving and art with our guided diving excursion in Lanzarote's Atlantic Museum. Curated by Jason deCaires Taylor, a British artist who has also constructed an underwater museum in Mexico and one in the West Indies, the Atlantic Museum is the first of its kind in Europe.

The underwater Atlantic Museum covers an area of 2,500 square metres and is located off the bay Las Coloradas, south of Lanzarote. Only certified dive centres are allowed to conduct diving excursion in the Atlantic Museum, unguided dive in the area is not allowed. So join us for an extraordinary dive where our professional dive masters take you to visit some of the 300 art figures, models and sculptures. These sculptures are made of pH neutral cement which, in time, will help the marine biomass flourish and facilitate the reproduction of species on the island.

The Atlantic Museum is about 14 metres deep, hence making it easy for certified divers of all levels to enjoy this unique immersion. Each sculpture has a story and meaning to it, some of the popular ones are:
> 'Los Jolateros' featuring children paddling in a miniature boat - a tradition in Lanzarote
> ‘Los Fotógrafos’ with a faceless couple doing selfie which prompts us to reflect on the use of technologies
> ‘The Raft of Lampedusa’ which echoes the tragedy of the maritime migrations
> Human Swirl
> The portal and so much more

After the Atlantic Museum visit, there will be another dive nearby where you can check out the underwater landscapes and sea creatures of the Las Coloradas area.

The 2 dives will not take more than 2 hours to complete but please allow at least half a day for the whole experience which includes transfer, preparation and waiting.
