About Underwater Gardens
” A paradise for divers & families to celebrate life on land and under the sea! “
Underwater Gardens International has developed a new business model that simultaneously creates natural, cultural and economic wealth: the Underwater Gardens parks.
An Underwater Gardens Park (UGP) creates a link between two worlds: a set of
large underwater reefs conceived as symbiotic and experiential architecture and a set of land facilities geared towards family entertainment.
A UGP offers activities designed for all ages, abilities and interests, with the objective of raising awareness and spreading knowledge about the health of the ocean.
Under the water,
The Dive Center is designed to offer maximum comfort and state of the art equipment, the Aquademy is an experience center designed to promote hands on learning, and the Bio Lab features a bed of algae and coral dedicated to the maintenance of the Underwater Garden and is a facility for scientific research.
The Garden Gate welcomes divers but also their companions, offering attractive, complementary activities designed with a Gaming approach: to have fun and learn by playing.
