El Colony International Scuba Diving Center is on the Isla
de la Juventud, Southwest of the Cuban mainland, 46 kilometers
(29 miles) from Nueva Gerona, capital of that island municipality.
Its enchantment stems both from its history -which is filled
with legends of buried treasures- and from its beautiful seabed.
The Siguanea Marina can fit you out for scuba diving in renowned
sea depths, which many specialists consider one of the best
in the world for scuba diving. Tunnels, passages, grottoes,
deep channels and underwater valleys form an incomparable
submarine seascape inhabited by a great diversity of species.
Scuba diving courses at all levels are offered, with internationally
recognized certificates. An international underwater photography
contest, Photosub, is held at this marina each year, upon
client's request, with different specialties and prizes.
Punta Francés, a reserve of the biosphere, is near
the Puertosol El Colony International Scuba Diving Center.
Its picturesque beaches are perfect, both for water sports
and for simply enjoying nature. Moreover, it is a special
stopping place for cruise ships.
