No, absolutely not! All snorkelers are given floatation vests to wear and our sea water is very buoyant, keeping swimmers and snorkelers effortlessly on the surface to enjoy the view.

What should I bring for snorkeling?2024-03-14T12:08:03+00:00

Bring your snorkeling gear if you have it(mask, snorkel, and fins), sunscreen, a towel, and a waterproof camera if you wish to take photos or video. Don’t worry about the gear, Eco Dive Grenada will provide you with the snorkeling equipment you’ll need, including floatation devices 🙂

What marine life can I expect to see?2024-03-14T12:08:58+00:00

What does the sculpture park represent?2024-03-14T11:50:31+00:00

The Molinere Underwater Sculpture Park serves multiple purposes. Artistically, it offers a thought-provoking experience that challenges the boundaries between art, nature, and humanity. Ecologically, the sculptures act as artificial reefs, providing a substrate for coral colonization and a sanctuary for marine life. This helps alleviate pressure on natural reefs, which are often damaged by human activities and environmental threats such as climate change and ocean acidification.

Key Pieces of the Grenada Underwater Sculpture Park2024-03-14T11:51:34+00:00

One of the most iconic pieces in the park is the “Vicissitudes,” a circle of 26 life-sized figures holding hands. This sculpture represents the unity and resilience of the human spirit, as well as the interconnectedness of humanity with nature. Over time, the sculptures have become encrusted with coral, algae, and sponges, creating a vibrant underwater landscape that attracts a diverse array of marine species, including fish, crustaceans, and mollusks.

Another notable sculpture is “The Lost Correspondent,” which depicts a man working at a desk covered with historical newspaper clippings, symbolizing the transient nature of news and communication. Other sculptures include “Grace Reef,” a series of female figures lying on the ocean floor, and “Sienna,” a sculpture of a young girl gazing at her reflection in a mirror, highlighting the theme of self-awareness and introspection.

What’s the best way to see the sculpture park?2024-03-14T11:55:46+00:00

Exploring the park through a guided snorkeling or diving tour can offer a personal and in-depth experience, allowing you to discover the stories behind each sculpture and observe the marine life that has made the park its home.

What is the Grenada Underwater Sculpture Park?2024-03-14T12:04:52+00:00

The Grenada Underwater Sculpture Park is an underwater gallery featuring sculptures by artist Jason deCaires Taylor and others. The sculptures serve as artificial reefs, promoting marine life growth and offering a unique snorkeling experience.

Do I need to be an experienced snorkeler to visit the park?2024-03-14T12:05:36+00:00

No, the park is suitable for snorkelers of all levels, including beginners. However, it’s recommended to be comfortable in the water and basic snorkeling skills don’t hurt but aren’t necessary.

How deep is the water in the sculpture park?2024-03-14T12:06:25+00:00

The sculptures are located at various depths, with some as shallow as 5 meters (16 feet), making them easily accessible for snorkelers.

Is it safe to touch the sculptures?2024-03-14T12:10:17+00:00

Hands off please! It’s best to avoid touching the sculptures to preserve their integrity and the marine life that has grown on them. Also, touching coral and marine life is very harmful to them. It can take years for corals to grow a tiny amount and a touch can undo all that growth.

How can I help protect the sculpture park?2024-03-14T12:11:18+00:00

Respect the marine environment by not touching the sculptures or marine life, avoiding sunscreen with harmful chemicals, and not leaving any trash behind. Want to do more? Ask us when you’re here, we love to talk about the park!
