Diving in the Bay of Pigs
There are four dive spots and schools:
- Playa Giron
- Caleta Buena
- Bahia de los Pesces
- Playa Larga
Getting around the different dive spots is very easy, because there is a bus connecting the areas. Since we stayed in Playa Giron we know the bus time, from there: we had to be at the Hotel Giron at 9.30 in the morning. Then the bus goes to Caleta Buena, then Playa Giron, Bahia de los Pesces and Playa Larga and back again. There are two buses in the afternoon, going the opposite direction. It was in Caleta Buena at 3.30 and 4.30 p.m.
If you dive in Playa Giron there is a colorful dive bus that picks up all divers around the village – that told their casa owners that they want to dive – at around 8.30 a.m. in the bus are also people who want to snorkel for the day. After picking up everyone, the bus drives to the diving school. There everyone has to sign in for the dives of the day and got the equipment. Afterwards everyone goes back into the bus, to the dive spot and dive J. The dive is from the shore, at a wall, very easy and nice. One dive costs 25 CUC per Person (and it doesn´t matter if you bring your own gear or not). It´s a factory-style dive…
