Diving in Havana

Learn how to dive in one of the most beautiful diving regions of the world and experience Cuba in a very unique way. After the first few theory classes you start practicing in a pool. Afterwards you can dive into the Caribbean Sea. Beside the spectacular deep waters, you can also get to know vivid Havana. Choose from many different options for your free time: How about a Classic Car Tour or the famous Tropicana Tour? You can also extend your stay and visit Viñales or Las Terrazas. If you can't get enough of diving after your tour, you can also use your certificate and go for another diving tour on the Cayo Largo or in Playa Girón.

Below you'll find a day-by-day breakdown for the Diving in Havana Tour.

Diving in Havana Highlights

Diving Area

The diving area around our diving school is located about 15 km from the center of Havana and offers perfect conditions for diving beginners. After 10 minutes of paddling directly from the mainland, dive into the fascinating underwater world. Gentle tides determine the water there, so that no strong flow is produced. Also, the average water temperature is 24 ° C and the clean water ensures that the seabeds are covered with various vegetation. With coral fish, blue marlines, turtles and reef sharks, you'll be immersed in a diverse landscape of coral and animal species!

Diving Course

Our diving course is led by our instructor, Pepe, who knows this part of the ocean as if it was his home. Since his very first dive during his training as a deck officer, Pepe has completed over 15,000 dives in Peru, Panama, Angola and Cuba. He'll share his 30+ years of experience with you as your instructor. After your first classes, you will complete a few practical exercises in the pool, before doing a total of 4 dives in the sea. With the successful completion of the final exam, you receive the SSI certification as an Open Water Diver.

Havana

Experience Havana during this diving trip. Explore the vibrant city as part of a guided tour, take an old-timer tour, visit the Rum Museum or the Hemingway Museum. Make sure you don't miss Havana at night: when the city really comes to life! Stroll through the old streets of the city and experience the true Cuban way of life. You'll hear music, see dancing and maybe be swept up into the rhythm yourself. Enjoy a mojito in one of the many restaurants and pubs in the old town, or visit one of the famous shows in Cuba, the Tropicana Show or the Cabaret Parisien.
