Diving in Cuba has become over the years one of the most attractive activities for tourism. New technological advances today allow greater comfort, safety and the ease of acquiring underwater skills much faster. Divers of all levels come to admire the marine fauna and ecosystems that include soft corals, underwater caves, shipwrecks that, together with unspoiled Caribbean beaches, Cuban islands and cays make it a perfect paradise for the lovers of the marine world. For beginners snorkelling, there are many possibilities to do this activity in crystal clear waters from the shore of Cuba.

Cuba is surrounded by the incredibly warm waters of the Atlantic to the north, the Caribbean Sea to the south, and the Gulf of Mexico to the west. With only two defined seasons, the dry season from November to April, and the rainy season from May to October, the air temperature oscillates between 26 ° C and 32 ° C during the year, while the water temperature varies from 24ºC in January to 28-30ºC in May.


Our waters lack strong currents and are characterized by their warmth and great visibility, around 30 meters. The transparent waters offer perfect visibility conditions to observe the almost intact reef barriers.

The island has an area of ​​1,250 km, 700 kilometres of coastline, 4,200 keys and islets and 200 bays. In addition, it has more than 1500 registered marine species, 200 species of sponges, 50 types of corals and numerous banks of endemic species.

That is why the priority of the Cuban state is the defense of its coastline and its waters, so much so that great efforts are made to avoid overfishing and pollution. Therefore, those who do not comply with the measures and laws that protect the marine ecosystem are fined. Thanks to this protective veil of the law, the coral gardens are in perfect condition and the marine life follows a natural course.
