Marine tour of Cuba planned

ADVERTISEMENT

Predicting an end to the U.S. travel embargo against Cuba, Ft. Lauderdale-based Richard Graves & Associates has organized a trip through the island nation’s marine industry. Set for Feb. 18-22, the week after the Miami boat shows, the trip will visit Hemingway Marina in Havana, and Marina Tarara and Marina Gaviota in Varadaro, as well as tours of several cities, including Havana.


The four-night, five-day trip is being organized by Other Cuban Journeys, an OFAC-licensed tour organizer.

According to Graves, Cuba plans to add 23 marinas with more than 5,000 slips, more than quadrupling the amount of dockage. Plans for the expansion of Marina Gaviota at Varadero show a marina complex similar to Atlantis in the Bahamas, including a five-star hotel.


The tour will be limited to 35 participants. For more information, visit www.rgassoc.com and click on “study tours”.
