Cuba Scuba Tours | 515.575 Humanitarian travel to CubaJoin Scuba Center and Cuba Scuba Tours as we continue to explore Cuba. We have completed several trips to Cuba since 2013 and have experienced firsthand the wonderful diving and fascinating culture that Cuba offers. This land based trip includes dive research opportunities as well as many cultural research experiences. Cuba Scuba Tours is an organization licensed for 515.575 Humanitarian travel that leads groups to participate in a humanitarian-environmental project with meaningful contact through citizen science marine discoveries and cultural activities. These educational exchanges bless the Cuban people and offer transformative experiences to travelers to understand the setting in which Cubans experience their own marine environment and efforts to protect/conserve it.

Villa Marinera in Cayo Largo
Villa Marinera in Cayo Largo | Legal Educational Travel to CubaCayo Largo is Cuba’s largest sea turtle nesting site amidst the finest beach, the broad westward-facing Playa Sirena, where 2km of natural, powdery white sand remains cool to the feet. This dreamy key is an ecological reserve within Cuba’s National Marine Park System with abundant pelagic marine life including sharks, grouper, tarpon & rays with clouds of schooling fish. Due to its remoteness, few Americans have ever dived this southern little island off the mainland, easily classified as the top land-based diving area in Cuba. Stay at Villa Marinera (these charming remodeled cabins just reopened July 2022 with terrific food!) & join Cuba Scuba’s team led by local marine biologists to discover this hidden treasure to help shape humanitarian- environmental conservation projects.

Havana
Havana Cuba | Havana is located on La Habana (Havana) Bay on the island’s north coast. It is the largest city in the Caribbean region and has one of the great treasuries of historic colonial preserves in the Western Hemisphere. Prior to 1959, when Fidel Castro came to power, it was a mecca for tourists from the United States, who were drawn by the city’s many attractions, which included climate and nightlife in addition to history.
