CUBA  LIVEABOARD DIVING

Cuba Liveaboard diving brings you the marine wonders of the Jardines de la Reina (Gardens of the Queen). This archipelago so impressed Christopher Columbus, he named it in honor of the queen of Spain.  Although Christopher Columbus and his vessels in a way were the first Cuba liveaboard visitors to the Jardines de la Reina, scuba gear was still science fiction. They could not go diving in the Jardines del la Reina but you can! What’s more you will find the place as pristine as he left it, because since 1996 it is a marine reserve and from 2010 a National Park.

Located on the Caribbean side of Cuba, the Gardens of the Queen are bathing in blue jade crystal-clear waters. Cuba Liveaboard vessels navigate between its 250 virgin coral islands to take you diving on the very best spots. Your will be scuba diving reefs, vertical walls, canyons and caves, all covered with impressive sponges, Pilar Corals, gorgonians, fragile laminar corals and last but not least black corals. All of this wonderful wilderness is of course overflowing with life of all sizes, such Sharks, Snappers, Groupers, Jewfish and myriad variety of fish and creatures. Along with sharks, oversized Goliath, black, tiger and Nassau groupers are a big attraction here.

These superbly equipped liveaboards like a space ship will take you back in time, to an archipelago where the reefs are as they were hundreds of years ago.

Even Jacques Cousteau dove here with Fidel Castro as his buddy to personally show him the immense beauty and importance of this marine treasure. Generally giving very calm and warm Caribbean diving with very good visibility, this Cuba liveaboard diving trip is perfect to build up experience before setting out to more challenging rougher and colder water destinations.

It may not be your drink, but if it is, there truly is no better place to sip a Cuba Libre than on the deck of this Cuba Liveaboard diving vessel at sunset, overlooking the surrounding mangroves.
