International Diving Centre La Aguja - Marina Hemingway

Situated just on the edge of the City Centre of Havana lies the international port and marina, Marlin Marina Hemingway. Home to mega-yachts and small water craft alike, this purpose built marina offers a good selection of restaurants and facilities at the head of the moorings.

Equipped with new Scubapro equipment, and several speedboats and larger dive boats is the Marlin Dive Centre.

From the central marina a 25 minute speedboat ride out through the port will drop you into clear waters, full of dramatic rock formations, and heavily populated with Atlantic marine life – barracuda, morays, congers, lobsters and schooling fish a-plenty. There are over 30 logged sites to choose from, and the staff at the centre will do their utmost to provide you with the type of diving you want.

You will immediately forget that the city is just a stones throw away on the surface!

Rays of several type and size will be there in the sand, and you have to check out the large barrel sponges – often filled with crab and lobster shells. Apparently, the octopi like to clean up after themselves, and use the sponges as bins!

Hot tip: Take your passport. Marina Hemingway is an international port and you will need it to exit and then re-enter the marina.
