SCUBA DIVING

With such an abundant marine environment and no less than a thousand ship wrecks to explore, it is not surprising that Cuba is such a popular spot amongst divers. The underworld landscape here is composed of an impressive network of caves featuring profusely decorated vertical walls, tunnels, channels and cliffs, offering stunning day and night dives, where you’ll come across some of the thousand species of fish that inhabit the Cuban waters.

Along with the fish, Cuba’s underwater gardens are home to no less than 200 kinds of sponges (including cup, branch, and tubular), about 60 varieties of coral (527 miles of coral reef), as well as numerous molluscs, crustaceans, gorgonians, algae and Common Sea Fans. Located just off the northern coast of central Cuba, Jardines del Rey Archipelago (or Sabana-Camaguey Archipelago) is the island’s most important reef and, stretching over 280 miles, is also the second largest reef in the world. Divers will also enjoy the exceptional conditions at Cuba-Colorados, Jardines de la Reina and Canarreos. 

 
 

In terms of diving conditions, the large island is surrounded by a wide insular shelf of 26,190 square miles providing calm waters averaging at a year-round temperature of 24 to 28.5oC, and with visibility ranging from 65 to 130 feet.
