The waters surrounding the northern coast of Hicacos Peninsula, where Varadero is located, are known for being warm and steady, turning this zone in one of the favorite of scuba-diving lovers.
Among the most notorious diving points are Playa Coral, area with a depth from 3 to 60 feet, inhabited by over 30 species of coral. For its characteristics this is the only diving point offered to beginners and divers with Open Water certification.
For those with a little more experience, the program offers sites such as Patrol Wreck, an underwater wreckage of a russian patrol ship, inside the submarine park “Cayo Piedra del Norte”, where you can observe groupers, barracudas and blue snappers. In sites Claraboyas I and II, large submarine hills are predominant, with grades between 30 and 60 feet, crossed by caves and cracks, and populated by shoals of shads and kingfishes.
With a weekly rotation system, designed to avoid repetitions, Varadero Diving Centers offer departures from any of the hotels in the resort to the diving points, covering the modalities of shipwreck and coral barriers with diverse species. Some friendly morays may even show up to eat from the diver´s hand.
