I have never seen anything like this in my life. The statue is absolutely amazing. All I could do is just stare. This statue will take your breathe away. The beauty words cannot not express.

My daughter went snorkeling there yesterday and was able to dive down without scuba gear. It's roughly 20 feet deep but when the tide is low, it's a little easier. It's worth the trip.

This is a statue at a dive site. Advertising makes it a bigger deal than what it really is. Great for pictures but you don't have to go out of your way to make it a part of your trip because in the end, its...More

This was a good trip as the weather had eased some and visibility was better than the previous day. I buddied up with someone and thanks to great instructions we found the Christ Statue easily. Ocean Divers are a slick operation and to be recommended.

We scubaed with Amoray. There were snorkelers onboard sometimes, but my impression is that the boat was dedicated more to scuba in terms of the depths and sites we visited. If you just want to visit the Christ of the Deep... More

No, the statue is about a 30 minute boat ride out. There are cannons just off the beach at John Pennekamp State Park. The boat trip only cost about $30.00 per person from the park. They limit their numbers so it is not over... More
