Come sail away... to Cuba

 You wanna know one of Cuba’s more beautiful faces? Dive in, literally… An increasing number of visitors from all over are coming to explore Cuban marine environment, and the Ministry of Tourism is creating options to meet the huge demand.

As a matter of facts, Cuba’s nautical company Marlin S.A. and Spain’s Logisprint just announced the forthcoming launch of the Cayetana catamaran, to cruise the coastline of Havana - a city visited by more than one million travelers per year.


The vessel, with a capacity for 100 persons, will sail five times a day from the city's old quarter to the opposite end, and will provide Spanish-English on-board entertainment. If weather is not good for sailing, the catamaran will tour the Havana bay area only.

The initiative arose as the result of tourist demand, who will soon enjoy the capital city's urban landscapes from the sea, learn about its history and appreciate its architecture. Sources said that Cayetana catamaran will sail under the name Los Albatros de La Habana.

Marlin also organizes and hosts different events, such as the Ernest Hemingway Swordfish Fishing Tournament, to run this year from May 29 to June 3, 2017. The tournament, created in 1950, is one of the oldest events of its type in the world.

Marlin also organizes an annual underwater photography competition and other prestigious events, in addition to conducting training courses.
