56,000 Ton Artificial Reef

A massive new artificial reef was officially unveiled off the coast of Cozumel this week.

Francine Cousteau, president of the Cousteau Society and widow of undersea explorer Jacques Cousteau, visited the island as its "godmother".

The new underwater attraction weighs more than 10 Boeing 737 jets. It is made of 56,000 tons (50.8 million kilograms) of salvaged concrete taken from the Puerta Maya cruise ship pier destroyed by Hurricane Wilma in 2005.
