Snorkelling and diving

Various tours are offered to visit the underwater museum. You can choose an excursion for snorkeling, but also for diving. So you can get closer to the artworks. And thus have a better experience. Although snorkeling is also very rewarding.

You can visit with a snorkel mask, where you float on the surface. Although diving is logically a better option. Then you get really close to the images and you can view them extra well.
