古巴潜水：Jardines de la Reina
位于南部的Cuba, Jardines de la Reina (Queen’s Garden), without doubt, is the most adventurous archipelago in Cuba for scuba diving. The area is profoundly protected by the Cuban government where the commercial fishing and industries are prohibited, and only certain number of tourists allowed.
Fidel Castro, who used to be a scuba diver, decided to preserve the area in 1990-ish and pointed out an Italian company, Avalon, to manage the tourism industry in the archipelago. The company allowed to bringing of maximum 750 scuba divers and 500 fly fishermen annually.
Jardines de La Reina的红树林区是鸟类，鱼类和美国盐水鳄鱼的家。这种濒危鳄鱼的平均寿命为70年，大约两米。其中一个经常在托尔图加，浮动潜水员居住的浮动小屋等人。新金沙线上新金沙线上弗朗诺，因为托尔图加的员工名叫他，将在Tortuga的甲板下等待，直到其中一名员工或客人用渔麻线固定的鸡肉。在终原吞下肉之前，他在徘徊。它看起来好像在这次关闭遭遇的甲板上享受我们的公司。
One thing to guarantee while diving in Jardines de la Reina is, almost in every dive site you will come across groups of Silky sharks and Caribbean reef sharks. Occasionally you can also expect to bump into Lemon and Nurse Sharks. Most of the sharks are about two to three meters long, and yes, they are huge! Before diving, our dive masters who have long experience diving with sharks briefed us that sharks in the Caribbean waters are not aggressive unless when they feel threatened.
Our first encounter of around 20 sharks was in a dive site called Black Coral Two. Similar sights could also be found in dive sites Boca de Piedra, Caves o de la Qera, Cabeso de la Ralla, and Los Moqotes.
除了鲨鱼,我们也遇到了拿骚,and Goliath groupers. These species were considered endangered due to severe over-fishing. The groupers were relatively huge; we predicted their weights were about 80 to 90 kilograms. After several days diving with the sharks and groupers, I concluded that I should be more on guard towards the groupers rather than the sharks.
Other dive sites such as Frallon, Anclitas and Montana Russa have beautiful landscape featuring underwater canyon with tunnels and caves along with gorgonian fans and sponges. In these dive sites, scuba divers can easily spot the morays, barracudas, sting-rays and tarpons.
After all, Jardines de la Reina is a living proof that profound marine protection could result amazingly. It is a place worth to visit for scuba divers to enjoy a pristine area and to feel that there is small part in this planet where our ocean, sharks and other endangered species get fully protected.

Pescador is a small Island in the west of the Moalboal. Diving there will surprise you in any season. The mystical and spooky cathedral is worth a dive for its own. And we all remember the fantastic school of sardines. Will ...
