The Jardines Avalon Fleet liveaboard are comfortable floating hotels based in Cuba. All cabins on all ships of the Jardines Avalon Fleet feature individually controlled AC, storage space, and private en-suite bathrooms.

Cuisine aboard Jardines Avalon Fleet vessels includes a mix of Cuban food, grilled seafood and vegetables, as well as international dishes. The onboard bars house a selection of Cuban beers and rum, international wines, and spirits. All ships have a large dive deck located at the back of the ship, with plenty of room for gear storage and kitting up before jumping into the pristine tropical waters of Jardines de la Reina (Gardens of the Queen).

The Jardines de la Reina marine park is a diver's paradise, and there are local marine biologists on board, ready to teach and discuss the conservation of this unique ecosystem. Liveaboard diving in Cuba offers divers the chance to visit pristine coral reefs and an abundance of wildlife, including up to 6 different species of shark, such as hammerhead and silk sharks, huge schools of snapper, giant grouper, and even the chance of whale sharks at the right time of year.

Fantastic experience onboard and in the water.

Diving in the national park, we were the only liveaboard on the reef. Huge amounts of sea life and sharks at every dive. The staff were continuously attentive and responded to our every need, both with diving and on board. Excellent food and accommodation.
