Where you'll be

Puerto Escondido is a beautiful beach located in the rural part of the province of Havana(70km away). Its beautiful white sands are cradled on one side by the cliffs, which rise to tens of meters and house an exuberant flora, and on the other side by the warm and crystalline ocean.The sea is the main attraction, with clear and shallow waters, full of marine life. There are coral beds, underwater caves and tropical fish.

Christian and Anthony are incredibly experienced, knowledgeable and patient (especially with first time divers like myself and my partner) . We originally had our tour booked for one day but the weather wasn’t ideal for the dive. Christian had been tracking the forecast and communicated with us with ample time to make rearrangements . We dove on an idyllic day . The clarity under the water was incredible and the temperature outside the water was comfortable . Christian and Anthony were great guides both under the sea and outside the water. They helped us to regulate our breathing when we became anxious . They were there to correct us when we needed help . They also guided us to see the fauna and animals in the water. This was really magical ! <3

Christian and Tony were amazing and marine biologist! Showing much passion and support for each other for the adventures in marine environment! They were kind to arrange for taxi to the dive destination and as I hadn’t been diving for years, Christian did a good introduction and review on diving and always asked if I was ok in the water, which makes me feel comfortable in the water. There was also another girl who just did her first dive and they were very patient in teaching and guiding about using the dive equipments etc. Definitely recommend diving with them! As you’ll be sure that you’re safe while diving and finally, they take awesome photos of you! Loved this diving trip and I will for sure come back for more!

Great experience! Christian and Tony picked us up and we drove to a really beautiful peaceful place to dive. It was my first ever time scuba diving so I was a bit nervous but thankfully Tony explained it all in-depth and patiently helped me so much with everything! The hosts really do have an amazing knowledge of what they’re doing and we felt really safe with them! Would definitely 100% recommend it!!

Great scuba diving trip with Tony. Christian arranged for a taxi to pick us up in the morning to head to Puerto Escondido and bring us back after the dives. The beach there was a great spot. The equipment was in a good state. Tony explained everything before we start scuba diving which was adequate for beginners. We opted for the second dive which we would recommend doing. We saw loads of corals and fishes including an eel, puffer fish and an octopus. We had a great time and would recommend.
