Experience the culture and dive into one of the most pristine coral reefs on the planet.  We will then spend seven nights on the Avalon JA-3 for an exceptional liveaboard experience while diving Jardines de la Reina (the Gardens of the Queen). On the JA-3, you will be joined by a Cuban marine scientist and diving experts who will provide you with a once-in-a-lifetime look at a relatively undisturbed reef and mangrove ecosystem. You will see massive coral reefs, steep walls, and a diverse fish population. It is common to see turtles, large jewfish, snapper, grouper, and more. The shark experience is like no other in the Caribbean as you may see black tip, lemon, nurse, silky, and hammerhead sharks...many on the same dive! This trip is built to include most meal costs and provides a “no worries” travel itinerary.
