What you'll do

In this experience you will feel like a marine biologist,you will make visual censuses which is one of the tasks that we perform daily to investigate about the life of the fish. Early in the morning you will receive an educational talk about the main species of fish that live there and the role they play in maintaining the ecosystem's balance. Then we’ll get ready with the dive equipment and we will dive in this spectacular reef full of marine life and colors but you’ll have an identification guide in your hands, in which we go to write down with a pencil which species we have managed to see.Yes, although it seems incredible, we will write underwater!!!!!!!! With your work and our knowledge interchange you’ll contribute with the research work of Cuban scientists about the state of health of Cuban marine ecosystems in this area .

You can dive if: you are over 15 years old. Have you ever dived before? Great, it doesn't matter, we are here to teach you !!!! We will not travel by boat at any time during the adventure. You can ask anything about the experience

Hi,I’m Christian. I’m marine biologist graduated from the University of Havana. Moreover I’m international scuba diver certified by SNSI and professional underwater photographer. I’ve more than 10 years in dive experience and underwater photography is my biggest passion,which I combine with my job as a marine researcher. I like teach to dive at my friends and share all that I know about the sea and the organism that living in there, for that reason I created my own Diving Club as cuban entrepreneur to interchange knowledge about cuban marine ecosystems with people around the world . I would like to share this experience with anybody who really want value and know about Cuban marine life.

Where you'll be

Puerto Escondido is a beautiful beach located in the rural part of the province of Havana(70km away). Its beautiful white sands are cradled on one side by the cliffs, which rise to tens of meters and house an exuberant flora, and on the other side by the warm and crystalline ocean.The sea is the main attraction, with clear and shallow waters, full of marine life. There are coral beds, underwater caves and tropical fish.

I was unable to go on the dive, but my 2 teenage sons and our 26 year old cousin went in our place. My oldest son and my cousin described the experience as life changing, the guides as incredible and wonderful, and the location as stunning. I am so jealous that I missed this. This truly was the highlight of my families trip to Cuba.
