Scuba diving Underwater sculptures. Dive sites with Underwater sculptures

Scuba diving There’s never a shortage of incredible things to view when scuba diving, whether it’s some of the world’s most magnificent marine creatures, the remnants of historic sunken ships or even underwater sculptures. Around the globe, there are underwater statuaries and submerged sculpture gardens that you can swim around and explore. As artificial reefs, these sculptures are proving highly successful so far in attracting a stunning array of varied marine life. In doing so and attracting visitors, they have indeed fulfilled a role in easing the environmental pressure on other reefs in the locality. A key aspect to the sculptures’ appeal has been the dynamic changes brought about by being exposed to the power of the ocean. Unique natural forces including sea surge, wave action and currents have imposed their own influence and changes on the sculptures.
