Don’t miss the first and only European underwater museum by artist Jason Taylor.
HOW TO VISIT THE MUSEO ATLANTICO, THE FIRST AND ONLY EUROPEAN UNDERWATER MUSEUM
MY FIRST DIVE
After a couple of mails shared with 2/3 diving schools when still in Milan, I choose the Rubicon Diving. They offer a full day package (150 € pp) called “A day at the Museum” which is a non-certification pack that allows non-divers to make their first dive and experience the thrill of the museum. The price includes equipment hire, open water training & open water dive, boat trip and entrance fee (8-12€) to the museum.
Once you have completed the initial morning Try Scuba Diving programme, you have time to take a break for lunch. After lunch comes the highlight of the day, the trip out to the museum. The dive boat leaves from the marina at 3pm for a 10 minute ride to the dive site. Once at the entrance to the Museum you will enter the water with your instructor and slowly descend along the fixed line down to the start of the museum tour. At all times your instructor will be with you guiding you and ensuring your safety. The dive lasted around 40 mins.
LET’S DEEP DIVE
Since I was so concentrate to feel comfortable breathing underwater and trying not to panic again 🙂 I didn’t take many pics during the Museo Atlántico dive. But you can see this incredible place in this Rubicon Diving video:
If you want to discover more about the work of this artist, have a look at the video below where, in a TED talk, he explains how his art is half sculpted by him and half crafted by the ocean and introduces his last work, the Museo Atlántico
