We will swim and snorkel near Havana to find the remains of one of either of these two ships, SS Olivette or City of Alexandria, both American ships that sank in the waters off Havana. We will pick you up early in the morning at your place. On the way to the beach, you will be told the story of the century-old shipwrecks.
At the beach, we will warm up with simple physical exercises and go over the safety rules. If needed, we will teach you basic breath-holding techniques. We will swim 450 yards over the coral reef (SS Olivette) or 300 yards (City of Alexandria) until we get on top of the shipwreck. In good weather conditions you can see the wrecks perfectly from the water surface. The whole expedition might take two to three hours. Later, we can enjoy the beach for a while before going for lunch at Abanay´s House. Abanay is a chef friend of ours who accept to have us at her place and cook Cuban traditional dish for us (starters, main dish, dessert, coffee, and Cuba Libre cocktails included). While tasting her amazing food, we share our experiences and meet each other better!
