The expedition to discover Cuba is going underwater.
Marine wildlife artist and conversationalist Guy Harvey’s Fort
Lauderdale-based Outpost Resorts is launching a weeklong diving trip to
the Caribbean island in September — lionfish derby included.
The team-led guided fishing and diving trip will leave from Miami
International Airport on Sept. 14, then spend three days in Havana and
four days in Maria La Gorda, on the southwestern tip of the island. The
trip will focus on conservation, education and entertainment and be led
by Cuban native Yoel Gonzalez.
At Maria La Gorda, the group will take part in a lionfish derby to
remove the invasive species from Cuba’s reefs, where it preys on the
native species that don’t recognize it as a predator. Awards will be
given to the biggest and smallest lionfish caught, as well as the most
“We are incredibly excited to expand our Expedition Collection and offer
these extraordinary educational adventures, beginning with Cuba,” said

and Little Cayman.
The Cuba trip includes lodging in both locations, tours in Havana and
four dives, including tanks and weights, for $2,400 per person.
