You don’t want to miss this opportunity to the dive in the No. 1 destination in the Caribbean!
Even though most liveaboards in Cuba – Gardens of the Queen are fully booked through 2018, we managed to secure 7 nights aboard the premier live-aboard Avalon II on November 5th-12th, 2016. Avalon is the best dive operation based in Cuba and the pioneer diving operation to the Gardens of the Queen.
The arrival to Cuba will be a day earlier, Nov 4th, we will spend the first night at Iberostar Park Central hotel, one of the very best in Havana located right in the center.
The “Gardens of the Queen”, is a complex network of untouched marine ecosystems (Mangroves and Coral Reefs) that have been regarded by many knowledgeable scientists and organizations as a reference of what was the original status of the Caribbean coral reefs that Christopher Columbus found when discovering Hispaniola!!
Prepare to see an abundance of marine life, including 6 different species of Sharks, Turtles, huge Snappers and Goliath Groupers up to 400 pounds, Crocodiles and even Whale Sharks if we’re lucky.
This is a joint trip of Fantasea Line and our partners – Mozaik UW Cameras. UW Photo Pro, Ran Mor of Mozaik, will be leading the trip and will offer an UW photo workshop featuring Fantasea products for those interested.
