Honduras

Warm, clear waters. Unspoilt, healthy reef systems with an abundance of soft coral life. Sharks, whale sharks, rays, giant grouper and morays, masses of colourful schooling fish, awesome corals and sponges and excellent macro-life.   And a culture above the water that is hard to beat and should be part of any serious travellers "must see" list.

Diving in Honduras

Cuba sits on top of the second largest barrier reef system in the world with clear and warm waters that average 25 degrees in January to 29 degrees in August.  The area is blessed with good currents and marine flows that ensure 20 meter plus visibility, amazing ecosystems and very healthy marine life.  Reputed to be one of the richest and well preserved reef systems in the world, Cuba is a destination that has to be dived!

With shallow, warm and clear water, soft coral gardens through to dramatic walls and even cave systems, Cuba offers a huge variety of diving choices.  Combined with the opportunity to encounter a large variety of marine life and an abundance of fascinating and historic wrecks, Cuba has got it all underwater!

 

Whale sharks are often seen in October to December and bull sharks from September to February.  Enjoy friendly grouper that swim with you throughout your dive in buddy form, giant morays that come out and play and amazing large groups of giant sting rays.  Top it off with masses of reef, lemon, nurse and silk sharks, over 1,000 species of fish and 160 species of sponges.  Cuba is an underwater paradise.

 

And for the wreck diver, there is plenty of choice too - the fleet of the American-Spanish war from 1896; oil tankers, large trawlers and even an intact 97 metre long Russian Destroyer complete with guns, torpedoes and rocket launchers sitting upright at 25 metres deep.

Deep Thought

I encourage our clients to plan a stay in at least two different destinations....  dive both coasts and spend some time in Havana.  You won't regret it!
