Pro Dive International has announced that it is now offering shark diving and snorkelling with real crocodiles in Cuba. Together with Avalon, Pro Dive International guarantees a real thrill underwater experience.

Jardines de la Reina, this pristine underwater paradise consists of abundant marine life and amazing coral reefs. This place is also called “Shark´s paradise” for a reason. Sharks are one of the main attractions and they can be encountered everywhere. It’s common to dive with six different species: Silkies, Reef, Lemon, Black tip, King Hammerhead and nurse sharks. During the dive divers can expect that there will be even 30 sharks circling around them. The spectacular underwater show is guaranteed.

Undoubtedly, one of the most exciting encounters is snorkelling with crocodiles and observing them in their natural habitat. By swimming on the surface of mangroves there is certain chance to have a close interaction with these amazing creatures.

The American crocodile is one of the most common species living in this area. Like all true crocodilians, the American crocodile is a quadruped, with four short, stocky legs, a long, powerful tail and a scaly hide with rows of ossified scutes running down its back and tail. Its snout is elongated and includes a strong pair of jaws. Their narrow heads and long snouts is what distinguishes them from alligators. Its eyes have nictitating membranes for protection along with lacrimal glands, which produce tears.

In Jardines de la Reina Marine Park this species is protected and is one of the examples of how valuable animals are when conservation is related with tourism, as this is one of the biggest attractions of the park.

Jardines de la Reina is home to the biggest populations of adult fish in the Caribbean, Sharks, Snappers and Groupers; Jewfish up to 400 pounds are an everyday experience. Gardens of the Queen is certainly one of the last virgin reefs known by man. Dive and snorkel sites are well protected from the winds and sea currents. Visibility is more than 40 meters.
