Jardines de La Reina, Cuba – with a smattering of Havana too!

Cuba is a fascinating destination and the team from The Scuba Place know it best! Experience the magical city of Havana and world class shark and crocodile diving at Jardines de la Reina. ​This holiday starts with two nights in the fabulous old town of Havana followed by 6 days/7 nights of diving with sharks and crocodiles in The Gardens of the Queen on La Tortuga. Then it’s back to Havana for two more nights before heading home. Flights from London Gatwick on Virgin Atlantic direct to Havana, tourist cards, transfers and marine park fees included.

​​Your accommodation in Havana is the very best. The Iberostar Parque Central hotel sits right in the heart of the Old Town, surrounded by cobbled streets and all of the famous bars and attractions. Floridita, also known as Hemingway’s, is right across the square, and The Capitolio is just around the corner. Museums are close by, and the streets of Old Town Havana are right on your doorstep.

​The diving is world class – sharks galore, all in a stunning marine reserve. Expect clear warm waters, pristine reefs packed with marine life, and some of the best surface intervals ever on desert islands after visiting the crocs in the mangroves. This really is a slice of Heaven – stunning sunsets, silence, zero light pollution, and exceptional hospitality on board the floating Hotel, La Tortuga.

The shark diving is the best – expect 20+ grey reef sharks buzzing around you, or the same numbers of silky sharks on different sites. Lemon sharks frequent the shallows, and keep your eyes peeled for hammerheads, and even tigers. The odd whale-shark frequents these waters too, and expect schooling tarpon, Goliath grouper, conch fields and plenty of critters too!

This is a photographer’s paradise, and is one of the only places on the planet where you can jump in with crocodiles!

Take an immersive dive below the waves off the Welsh coast using 360 VR: Common Spider Crab (Watch Video)

Published

A week-long series from Jake Davies…

Below the waves off the Welsh coast, there are a range of species and habitats that can be seen. However, you don’t have to venture too far from the shore to see them or don’t have to leave the comfort of your home. Using 360 videos provides an immersive feeling of being below the water and encountering many species and habitats from diving one of the most important habitats and species that aren’t often seen whilst diving. For more of an experience of being below the waves, the VR videos can be viewed using a VR headset.

Take a VR dive just off the shore and explore what can be found within the shallow waters of a sandy beach. Fish can be founding cruising amongst the seaweed and numerous crustacean (Crabs, lobster, prawns, shrimps) species can be found walking around the seafloor. Common Spider Crabs (Maja brachydactyla) are one of the largest crabs species found along the coast and during the early summer, they aggregate in large numbers to moult which allows them to grow.
