Underwater Sculptures

Inspired by Mitch Teemley‘s 50 Unique Sculptures post, here are images from a few underwater sculpture parks I’ve dived. The sculptures in Grenada and Mexico were designed by Jason deCaires Taylor and the sculpture in Grand Cayman was designed by Simon Morris.

Grenada is an island located in the southern Caribbean. The images captured below were taken with my first underwater “point and shoot” camera.
