“Cuba’s 30-year dedication to its reefs has nurtured the largest elkhorn coral gardens in the Caribbean…Black corals and huge sea fans are surrounded by numerous Goliath grouper, silky sharks, blacktip sharks and great hammerhead sharks. I am astounded by the abundance of coral and marine life every time I have the opportunity to dive there.”
