Diving, flying, driving, any way you travel there is no shortage of attractions – man-made or natural – to keep learning more about. In this 5 Cool Man-made Underwater Attractions review, we looked at the leaders in 5 Cool Man-made Underwater Attractions that pioneered a host of followers and attractions enthusiasts or sparked movements, albeit underwater, that increased the beauty we have and see in earth’s most abundant element.
Ithaa Undersea Restaurant, Conrad Rangali Resort, the Maldives
Specifically located at the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island in Alif Dhaal Atoll in the Republic of Maldives, the Ithaa Undersea Restaurant is the world’s first all-glass self-described underwater or undersea restaurant, encased in a M.J. Murphy Ltd.-designed R-Cast acrylic tunnel. Look up around at the clear roof affording a 270-degree panoramic view for its 14 guests.
Throughout its operations, the Ithaa Undersea Restaurant surfaced unscathed with a colourful underground history of adjusting its services to host parties, weddings, and overnight accommodations.
Museo Subacuatico de Arte, Cancun, Mexico
Another first, this time in the world of Art where, in “one of the largest and most ambitious underwater artificial art attractions in the world,” more than 500 lifestyle manmade structures are permanently affixed to the seabed – the works all in all weigh more than 200 tons and occupy more than 420 square meters.
Technically, the Museo Subacuatico de Arte – a “unique” underwater museum of art” – was designed to marry environmental conservation with art: the attraction’s engineered with special materials so that the system can be effectively colonised and inhabited by marine life.
Il Cristo degli Abissi, San Fruttuoso Bay, Portofino, Italy
The original “Christ of the Abyss” is a bronze cast statue of Jesus Christ submerged in n the Mediterranean Sea, off San Fruttuoso. However, several other museums, churches, and diving sites had already imitated the iconic art work since. This original stands 2.5 meters, 17 meters deep in water, sculpted by Guido Galletti and clearly depicts the image of Christ with His arms raised towards the heavens in supplication from the watery depths.
Grenada Underwater Sculpture Park, Grenada
The Grenada Underwater Sculpture Park, this time, in comparison to the previous “art attraction” and “art sculpture,” is an art gallery or more aptly, a “sculpture park” consisting of a variety of original sculptures hailing from different themes and usually made from ideal strong materials like concrete and rebar and mostly depicting .
Of Grenada Underwater Sculpture Park’s environmental impact: “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.”
Bonne Terre Mine, Bonne Terre Missouri, United States of America
“America’s Best Underwater Attraction” as handpicked by readers, the Bonne Terre Mine showcases “mammoth architecture, guaranteed year round diving conditions. Cal falls, oar carts, scaffolding, grating, staircases, pillars, slurry pipes, the famed elevator shaft, and much more” within its cavernous underwater freshwater dive resort. Bonne Terre Mine is the whole adventure in a singular experience and has been delighting visitors, divers, and history enthusiasts since 1860.
You don’t need to be soaring in open space to experience dizzying heights of sensation: a stillness in reverence of beauty and the power of man to dive deep into the meaning of life.
