The best time to dive in Cuba and the Jardines de la Reina is from November to April. Within these months, you can expect dry and warm conditions. You’ll also find almost no current, warm water averaging from 79 °F (26 °C) to 84 °F (29 °C), and amazing visibility of 100 feet (30 meters) or more. On the other hand, May to October is the rainy season and also hurricane season. October carries the highest risk of these massive storms, although Cuba has historically escaped the majority of hurricanes in the Caribbean. During the rainy season, surface conditions are liable to be at their worst. But these months still feature great diving. You just might want to take out trip insurance in the event cancellation is necessary. Although the Cuba diving season can be split into two seasons, scuba diving in Cuba is fantastic year-round. The sharks and crocodiles are present in every month and liveaboards depart throughout the year.
