Cuba boasts not only fascinating landscapes, but is also a top diving destination. With our Diving Courses you can discover up-close what lies beneath the Caribbean Sea. We offer a range of courses for a range of diving abilities, ensuring that everyone is catered for. You can choose between our Scuba Diving Course, Open Water Diving Course or Advanced Open Water Course. You can also book single dives. Our courses can be booked at any time and will take place regardless of the number of places filled.
In order to dive you must be certified as medically fit. Please also note that you must wait a minimum of 24 hours between your final dive and boarding an airplane. This is to allow the nitrogen which accumulated in the bloodstream during diving to dissipate. This restriction is in line with the guidance and regulations of all major diving organisations.
