    The ‘Tortuga’ is a unique floating hotel allowing divers to explore the Jardines De La Reina. The 34m long double decked steel house boat is permanently anchored in a protected channel and is extremely stable, so there’s no chance of getting seasick - no matter the weather! The Tortuga Liveaboard has eight guest cabins, which can accommodate 2-3 divers, with a maximum of 21 divers on board. Each cabin has individually controlled air-conditioning and en-suite bathrooms. There is an air-conditioned dining room, where you will enjoy 3 hearty meals per day. Cuisine is a combination of Continental Italian, Cuban and seafood. The foredeck and and afterdeck offer a perfect place to relax and enjoy pizza appetisers, cocktails, and maybe a Cuban cigar before dinner.

    Diving from the Tortuga you will board a skiff and the experienced and professional guides will take you to show you the pristine beauty of the Jardines de la Reina (Gardens of the Queen) Marine Park where you can encounter huge schools of sharks, jacks, tarpon as well as healthy corals, walls and canyons. The Tortuga is a great choice for your scuba diving liveaboard holiday in Cuba. Contact us today to reserve your space.

    Amazing Crew, Beautiful sharks and Crocodiles (with chumming- if you're against it, probably better off to choose another destination)! Jardines de la Reina (Gardens of the Queen), Cuba in February

    The first day, I was concerned as the diving wasn't as good as I thought it would be, and had many discussions with the other dives which started with, "How much did I pay for this trip??!" The reviews from my scuba diving friends all over the world definitely did not match our first 3 dives. It turns out the director of diving was around, who is absolutely against chumming for the sharks, which is one of the things that make the diving in Cuba rave-able and is generally done when she isn't around. We had a couple of professional photographers on the boat whom complained enough that we started chumming on days 2-5, and the diving improved IMMENSELY. In other words, do not come to Cuba if you don't believe in chumming sharks, please. Without that attraction, diving can be much better for much cheaper elsewhere, even in the Caribbean- Bonaire for example, Florida, Mexico, Belize, etc etc. However, as long as they chum/feed the sharks and Niño the crocodile, I recommend the experience for the (moderate) price. The boat crew is one of the best I've ever experienced- happy, helpful, attentive, genuine, and warm- true to Cuban culture. Dive briefings were, well, brief but adequate for safety. Note: Don't leave your macro lens at home.

    The boat crew, the shark chumming and the crocodile experience!
