Equipped and staffed dive centres in Cuba are located throughout the country and Cuba dive safety is paramount. Bilingual dive instructors are certified by international agencies including the American Canadian Underwater Certification (ACUC), the Confederation Mondiale dÁctivites Subaquatiques (CMAS), Scuba Schools International (SSI) and more. PADI (US-based) does not operate in Cuba, but PADI certification is accepted in Cuba.
Tips for a successful Cuba diving holiday:
Bring your dive certification as it will be required by all dive centres
It is a good idea to bring your passport to all dive centres
Your first dive of the day should be the deepest
Eliminate or reduce alcoholic drinks
Drink as much water as possible before diving
Decrease the number of dives two days before flying
Do not fly (international flights) until 24 hours after your last dive
Always have travel insurance that includes diving in the policy
MOST IMPORTANTLY – dive to the conditions and know your own comfort levels. Do not dive deeper than you are certified to, and signal to your dive master, dive leader or dive buddy immediately if you are not feeling comfortable .
