Save $500 on the Avalon Fleet24th August 2016 | Sandro Lonardi
Cuba in hot right now, but scuba diving in Cuba is even hotter! With fewer travel restrictions for US citizens and the introduction of direct flights from several US cities, more people than ever will visit Cuba in the coming year. Be one of them with this amazing deal from the Avalon Fleet.
For select departures through the end of October, the Avalon I is $500 off! This deal can be applied to the August 27th, October 1st, October 15th and October 22nd departures. We're sure this summer special won’t last long, so be sure to book your space before it's gone.
If you’d like to try one of the other Avalon Fleet ships or travel later in the year, the Special Euro Rate is for you! This rate saves you between $200 and $300 in USD before applicable fees and is available on the Tortuga, Halcon, La Reina, Avalon I and Avalon II through December 30, 2016.
Unfortunately, these two special deals cannot be combined, but either one will save you hundreds of dollars on the best diving in the Caribbean!
The Avalon Fleet was the first to sail to Cuba’s famed Jardines de la Reina (a.k.a. the Gardens of the Queen). These ships remain the premier operator for this shark paradise, offering a boat for any style or budget.
The Tortuga is as much a hotel as it is a liveaboard. This houseboat remains stationary in the Gardens and is therefore perfect for divers who suffer from seasickness. It’s also the best choice if you don’t know whether you will participate in all three dives each day.
For divers who want a little luxury and wish to dive with Nitrox, the Avalon II is a good choice.
Divers who don't care about Nitrox yet still want to travel in style should pick the Avalon I.
For a smaller liveaboard experience, the Halcon has only 6 cabins to accommodate a total of 12 divers.
Finally, La Reina is a great choice for scuba divers who are careful with their budget. Especially with this special deal, it’s the most economical option.
Jardines de la Reina
With the third largest reef in the world, guaranteed shark sightings and mighty crocodiles, the Jardines de la Reina (Gardens of the Queen) in Cuba is a destination seemingly created for scuba divers.
Diving in Jardines de la Reina is exciting on many levels. From circling sharks to pristine reefs, there’s a bit of something for every type of diver. In addition, diving in the Gardens of the Queen is pretty easy. You can expect almost no current, warm water averaging from 79°F (26°C) to 84°F (29°C), and amazing visibility of 100 feet (30m) or more. Dives in the area are generally split into two categories: shark dives and reef dives.
As you may have already guessed, many are attracted to the Gardens by the nearly guaranteed shark sightings. There are some dive sites where you will enjoy more than 30 sharks circling above and below you at one time. Common shark species include large Caribbean reef sharks and silky sharks. At any time of year, the Gardens of the Queen are a fantastic dive destination if you are seeking guaranteed pelagic action with gorgeous underwater scenery.
