Visited with Non Stop Divers, Playa Blanca. Instructors explained in detail about every different sculpture/installation before we went in, and that really added to the experience. Otherwise, visibility was not great. And the sculptures didn’t attract as much marine life as I’d expected. The whole...More

Not a bad dive experience, but know that the underwater art exhibitions in the pictures don't necessarily look the way they do in the famous pictures anymore. The art exhibitions are covered in algae now thus reducing the detail of each and ever figure. Also,...More

Very disappointing and expensive dive. Really don't see the point of it - it attracted a fraction of the sea life of other, much prettier dive sites. I wouldn't dive it again and if I am honest, I wish I hadn't bothered. My brother dived...More

My son and I dived Museo Atlantico with Lanzarote Non Stop Divers. Despite being a relatively recent addition the sculptures have already become home to a wide variety of fish and other sea life, and are also interesting and thought-provoking in their own right. Recommended...More

We did this with Dive College Lanzarote it was a fantastic experience for both my 13 year old daughter and I. Not only a beautiful dive but it also has some powerful messages for the human race. Excellent thanks

Interesting concept, nice to see, especially because it has become home to lots of fish. It's a good diving site to try if you are around in Lanzarote.

Very nice and safe dive. The life around the statues is very diverse like octopus/cuddle fish/ barracuda/ trigger fish and lots of other fishes.

I did this dive with Alex from Lanzarote Non Stop Divers, a really great dive school. The museum is stunning, and provides a really interesting commentary on modern society. It's a must-do dive!

This artificial reef is absolutely amazing, cultural and lots of meaning to each of these beautiful statues. Lovely peaceful atmosphere as limited numbers per visit, lots of fish everywhere and an all round unforgettable experience

Wonderful, well worth the visit. We visited in a small group and I was really impressed by the statues and the clarity of the water. We saw an electric ray and there were lots of beautifully patterned and coloured fish.

You can visit if not an approved diver but must do a ( non certificated) course in the morning and can then go with a guide in the afternoon. I'm a keen snorkler thought had never dived before 2 weeks ago. The museum is not... More
