Ocean Atlas Underwater Tour

****PRIVATE BOAT EXCURSION**** 

BOAT – MIDNIGHT EXPRESS 39

SEATS – 16 passengers comfortably 

*****STATUE HISTORY*****

This sculpture was created by Jason deCaires Taylor, who named it “Ocean Atlas”. It depicts a girl, who sits on the western coastline of Nassau in the Bahamas, at a depth of five meters and it is the largest underwater statue in the world.

The girl looks like she carries the weight of the ocean above her in reference to the Ancient Greek myth of the Titan Atlas, who holds up the celestial heavens.

Ocean Atlas is the largest single sculpture ever to be deployed underwater. It reaches five meters up from the sea floor to the surface and weighs over sixty tonnes. Due to the sheer scale of the sculpture, it had to be assembled underwater in sections using an ambitious new technique developed and engineered by Jason deCaires Taylor.

At low tide, the work reflects a mirror image on the underside of the sea’s surface. It is a dramatic increase in scale from Taylor’s previous works and ensures that even after substantial coral growth the figure will still remain highly recognizable. A solar light and flag is located on the highest point to aid marine navigation
