Anyone who has dreamed of visiting Cuba's famous Gardens of the Queen Marine Park, mark your calendar for December 11-18, 2021! We have just rescheduled a REEF Field Survey Trip aboard the Jardines Avalon II, and we have several spaces available on our new dates in December 2021. This location is known as one of the best-preseved areas in the Caribbean, with frequent sightings of large predators like snapper, grouper, and sharks. It's also one of the few places where the rare Golden Fairy Basslet has been sighted. During the trip, surveyors will have the chance to contribute their sightings data to REEF's online database while discovering why this protected area is considered to be such a special place. Click here for more information about this highly sought-after trip.
If you're not able to travel this year, be sure to check out our 2022 and 2023 REEF Trips by visiting www.REEF.org/trips. REEF Trips are led by marine life experts, and include diving, seminars about fish identification, and plenty of fun with friends. Snorkelers, families, and non-divers are also welcome.
