“The entire island is an underwater museum, really.”

An awesome snorkeling adventure at the depth of a swimming pool. The Bay Islands Underwater Museum will take you on a guided snorkel tour of one of the most beautiful reefs in the Caribbean and so much more! Discover Mayan artifacts, a Spanish...more
We stumbled upon the museum during a day trip and are so glad we did. Though small, it is very well put together, informative, and professional. We learned history and relevance which is always a good thing. Strongly recommend for an hour stop. Easy parking,...More
Nice, clear water, calm and a good place to learn to snorkel. All equipment is included in the price. The underwater artifacts were interesting and the guides were very helpful. It was a good experience for my daughter who had never snorkeled before.

I am a scuba diver, but had a blast checking out the cheeky underwater museum by snorkle. Great excursion for kids as well. The atmosphere on the beach with the "Gilligans Island style" bar is awesome for a photo shoot! Bring your sunscreen, your own...More
First, a disclaimer: I have not paid the fee and actually done the Underwater Museum tour. I have often stayed nearby and have snorkeled the "museum" independently several times. I've observed the tour groups but not actually interacted with the staff. I assume a lot...More
