Dubbed the world's first underwater sculpture gallery, this impressive collection of 65 figures were carved and deposited by British artist Jason Taylor. The art sits at depths that range from six to 24 feet, with subject matter that draws from the island's cultural heritage. The figures include a group of 26 children holding hands and standing in a circle, a man on a bicycle, a table with a bowl of fruit and a pitcher, and The Lost Correspondent, a writer sitting at a desk in front of a typewriter. The "living gallery" has drawn coral growth, so that it will continue to evolve.

Editor Tips & Helpful Hints
  • You don't need to be a diver to enjoy. Most of the sculptures are visible from the surface. Those comfortable with skin diving (or free diving) can also reach a good vantage point.
  • It's close to the port at St. George's, but consider hooking up with a dive operation like Aquanauts Grenada for easy access.
  • Bring your underwater camera—you'll find some great photo ops.
