Those turquoise waters you always hear about in Cuba? They’re just as beautiful as everyone says — but don’t just see for yourself, you should try sleeping right on the gentle waves. This eight-day sailing tour starts and ends in vibrant Havana, then welcomes you onto our spacious catamaran to head down the southern coast. Along the way visit plenty of beaches, explore the colonial city of Trinidad, and snorkel right off the comfortable catamaran that’ll be your home away from home. With some of the freshest seafood you’ll ever taste, the only catch will be the daily one served at dinner.
