While Cuba is just 90 miles south of Florida, it’s an undiscovered paradise, especially for Americans who, until recently, have been banned from visiting the country.  Now that the political relations between the United States and Cuba are on the mend, Cuba is becoming a top destination spot for tourists, especially scuba divers. Because the

When you hear the word giant, I guess the first things that pop to mind are fairy tales, children’s books and maybe “Lord of the Rings”, yes I read the books and find it interesting…But I’m referring to actual giants, who live among us.

There’s nothing a diver parent wants more that for his little kid to join him / her underwater. If you’re like most parents, most likely you didn’t have as much time to actually go diving since the little angel was born. Let’s face it, they’re quite a handful. So I bet you have this whole

The island of gods is famous for its culture, beaches, temples and of course the party area Kuta. It also offers a variety of world class diving where almost every diver will find sites which suit their needs.
