“Loved it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

What fabulous and friendly people at Eagle Ray dive center, very knowledgeable ( as you would expect ) and very professional.
i only managed 5 dives as couldn't leave the hubby to many times ( he doesn't dive ) but the dives i completed were mind blowing. so sorry i never took an underwater camera but will next time for sure.
All the guys are great but massive thanks to Jorge ( George ) and Alex for looking after me as twice i was the only person diving but that was NO PROBLEM !!!
Highly recommended and will go again on my next ( which will be number 5 ) visit to Cuba'
Thanks guys, love you all

“Good Scuba diving centre on North East of Cuba”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Very helpful staff.
Dive centre is on a lovely caribbean beach. You have to carry the kit across the beach to the dive boat. Cold showers.
The dive boat is an open GRP planing hull with a ladder up the side which is a little difficult to climb.
Dive sites are fairly close with lovely clear, warm water and no current when I was there in April.. Very impressive corals.
Good equipment. 60 pesos for two boat dives.

We spent ten days in March in guardalavaca. Our previous holidays were only one week but wanted more time to ensure more diving. The dive masters are very good and the cave dive was very cool. What was so disappointing was only five dives in ten days. We were told that the coast guard was cancelling the dives but later found out that that was true only one day and the rest of the cancellations was the boat captain who didn't want to go out...........lazy. When we tried to schedule a night dive we where told that the jeep and driver was in Havana getting supplies until the end of our week......two days later we noticed the dive jeep parked at our hotel and later discovered the driver was staying with his family on a holiday. Why all the lies? This was our third trip to Cuba and the first time we found people to lie and be so lazy and try to find any excuse not to work. People deserve a holiday but why lie about it and if your captain doesn't want to go out then possibly the dive shop needs to look into making other arrangements to ensure they can service their customers..........next time we will take our money elsewhere seeing they were not to interested in having us spend it with them.

“Just back from there....Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

My girlfriend and I are juste back from a 1 week trip to Cuba (Playa Costa Verde) and went on 8 dives with Eagle Ray. We dived twice a day, one deep and one shallow. Only one word: Awesome!

Good divemasters that KNOWS the area (Ask Alexander to show you the tank and artillery...he will find it by heart!) Going at the pace of the slower... very good equipement, even for Cuba (we had Luxfer (aluminium) tank instead of steel). We plan to go again within months!

Ask Jorge (or say George) about the cave or the night trip.... We did night dive!

Thanks again and I hope will see you again soon!

“Excellent Dives, Centre and Team.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

I first used this A.C.U.C. Dive Centre 11 years ago. It was very good then and just about excellent now. The Dive Masters and Admin team have a very high degree of Technical Knowledge, Skill, Ability, experience, enthusiasm and personality. Weather you spend 1 or 14 days with them, you never tire of their company. There are more than 2 dozen dives frequented by the Centre.

Communication is easy as all of the team speak excellent English. Be prepared for the light hearted banter that is always present. Jorge and Alex especially have razor sharp wit.

The equipment and craft are all in very good condition and well maintained. I would recommend this Dive Centre and its Staff without hesitation as one of the best I have used.
