Visit Cuba


Long a source of mystery to the rest of the world, Cuba has recently burst onto the diving scene. Situated along the north east edge of the Caribbean Sea where it meets the Atlantic ocean, the waters of Cuba offer a healthy and diverse mix. Due to its unique political status, the country and people have been isolated for many years. Well known for it’s cigars and rum, Cuba is an amazing place to visit for more than just the diving. The diving here is for all levels of experience from beginners to expert divers.


As the largest island in the Caribbean, Cuba has a seemingly endless coast line. A myriad of different eco systems are present throughout the island. There are resorts and liveaboards spread throughout the island making it easy to dive at all of the best spots. The best diving area, Jardines de la Reina, is a marine protected area that is only accessible by liveaboard.
