Marina Trinidad (41 99 6205, nauticamarlin.tur.cu), opposite Hotel Ancón, offers diving excursions and diving courses, including beginners’ classes. Fishing excursions include deep-sea fishing, trolling for big game, and bottom fishing.
One of the most popular snorkelling excursions is to Cayo Blanco, a narrow islet 8km from the peninsula with its own coral reef, where the waters teem with parrotfish, trumpetfish and moray eels. Trips on catamarans last six hours, and usually include a lobster lunch. The area is known for its easy diving with good visibility, minimal currents and an abundance of vertical coral walls. You’ll need your passport for any trip leaving from the marina.
