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 .
