Diving Equipment in El Colony Scuba Diving Center

Basic diving equipment and controls:

  1. the diving mask
  2. the demand valve of the diving regulator
  3. the buoyancy compensator inflation and vent valves
  4. an alternate buoyancy compensator vent valve
  5. shoulder straps of the BCD, which can be released by another diver in case of emergency.
  6. a depth gauge - showing 23 metres
  7. the contents gauge displaying remaining pressure in the diving cylinder - showing 150 bar

It is recommended that if you are diving in Cuba you take your own kit with you. The minimum kit you should take is a dive computer or own depth gauge so that you can confidently monitor your dive. Cuba is a poor country and dive centres may not be ran to the standard that you are familiar with elsewhere. It is also important to thoroughly check kit before each dive, be aware of your limits and not be afraid to ask the dive guides to stay shallow or slow down if you do not feel comfortable.

Welcome to my site dedicated to the Hotel El Colony and its related Marina and International Scuba Diving Center. I am "poco a poco" researching and updating it with the aim to provide as complete as possible record of the hotel's ancient and recent history; bearing in mind that the goings-on today may one day be of historical interest.

My site is NOT the official website of the current hotel operator, and is by no means endorsed by them; but I am grateful for their help with the research.

You can make from this site room reservations through the Bizloco eTravel System operated by Cubaism Ltd.

Best wishes for 2017
