Join us on an educational scuba expedition to Cuba!

We've arranged an educational workshop trip to Cuba including the spectacular Gardens of the Queen marine park on the brand new Avalon IV liveaboard. Travel to Cuba under this program is legal for U.S. citizens and residents.

This licensed educational visit examines the relationship of Cuban citizens with their natural environment, including socioeconomic and cultural issues brought about by Cuba’s growing ecotourism industry. The exchange also represents an opportunity to explore important environmental issues that impact the marine waters that both nations share through face-to-face interaction. The environment, and particularly the marine environment, is something that both biologically and culturally joins Cuba and the U.S. Visitors will meet with Cuban scientists and resource managers in workshops and perform citizen science.

You'll spend seven nights on board a brand-new, beautiful liveaboard dive vessel, Avalon IV, in the heart of Cuba's Gardens of the Queen (Jardines de la Reina) National Park, located 60 miles off the southern coast of Cuba, an archipelago comprising a chain of 250 virgin coral and mangrove islands extending along 75 miles of turquoise waters. Gardens of the Queen was featured on an award-winning segment of the CBS news program, 60 MINUTES hosted by Anderson Cooper. Gardens of the Queen is Cuba's first marine park and the largest no-take marine reserve in the Caribbean, where much of the story lies underwater. U.S. visitors will accompany Cuban specialists and scuba dive in one of the healthiest marine ecosystems remaining in the Caribbean.

Space is limited. Visitation to Cuba's Gardens of the Queen is already limited by the Cuban government, and capacity on this mixed LGBT/general public charter has been further limited for social distancing.
