The Halcon really does have the "Wow" factor. An elegant, gleaming white yacht cruiser, it provides unique accommodation for groups of divers and anglers seeking to sample the spectacular underwater delights of Jardines de la Reina. This natural marine park is one of the largest protected areas in Cuba. The distinctive combination of mangrove and coral has led to unusual ecological systems that have earned it a reputation as one of the best places in the world to dive with sharks (you'll spot many different species) as well as one of the Caribbean's premier diving spots. But the wonders of this region aren't just found in the depths, as above the surface divers can look out for turtles and even saltwater crocodiles in their natural habitat. The Halcon gives onboard guests and divers full access to the best dive and fishing locations in Jardines de la Reina; the Captain has an intimate knowledge of the archipelago. More remote fishing flats and shallow reefs can be reached by hopping in one of the skiffs tied to the main yacht and with such a precise appreciation of the area, the Captain and dive team can advise on more extraordinary excursions such as night diving. Hospitality on the Halcon is highly exclusive; days begin with a hearty breakfast while lunch is welcomed after the morning's dive or fishing trip has helped guests work up a healthy appetite. It tends to feature satisfying sandwiches and pasta. Unsurprisingly, there is an emphasis on fish and seafood, with lobster featuring heavily. Expertly prepared by the on-board chef, you can't get fish any fresher than this! Because of the intimate nature of the yacht, service becomes almost bespoke - so, for example, any dietary requirements, within reason, can be easily catered for. Accommodation is extremely comfortable, with ample storage space for keeping your kit in. Any kits that you find you have forgotten can be hired. A large salon makes an excellent place to sip a beer or cocktail in the evenings, reflecting on the adventures of the day and planning the activity of the next morning. The mojitos come highly recommended! Guests are gently lulled to sleep by the yacht's slight rocking, their dreams filled with the magnificent marine life they've witnessed, the incredible hues of the colours of the healthy soft coral, shimmering shoals of exotic tropical fish or the wonderful sight of a plentiful catch being hauled aboard...
