Comments This was a very refreshing Caribbean dive location...corals,sponges,fish were all doing well.Reef tops were pristine...thick with corals,sea fans,sponges,& tropical fish,large groupers & snappers & sharks were plentiful.It was so nice to see a dive location in the Caribbean look like all the Caribbean & FL Keys did many years ago.I was part of an Island Dreams group trip so as usual all went very well.I think we were the first group on the Jardines Aggressor 2 so everything was perfect....no complaints.The most unusual highlight of the trip was a snorkel with a salt water crocodile...up close & personal. The diving is worth a return trip if Cuba stays legal for Americans to visit in the future.
