Jardines Avalon III


Jardines Avalon III

Avalon has taken the utmost care in building and restoring our dive boats continually over the last 25 years. First, there was the 50' Explorador, refitted and transformed into La Reina. Then the Halcon, an old wooden boat with a noble past; and next the Georgiana. In 2010 the Jardines Avalon I became our first brand new boat built from scratch, and she is beautiful and comfortable with 8 staterooms cruising to the outer edges of the Gardens of the Queen. In 2014, we took this model of size and luxury even further; the Jardines Avalon II at 120 feet with 10 cabins, is a wonderful vessel cherished and loved by all.

The 160 foot Jardines Avalon III is a luxury motor yacht with 15 staterooms, including 4 suites with balcony. All cabins have private bathrooms and 2 beds (double or twin), air-conditioned with individual thermostats. Jardines Avalon III has an overall capacity of 30 passengers and 12 crew members.

There is a plethora of space onboard among its 3 panoramic decks. With a hot tub and full time crew at your every beck and call, you will find care and comfort in all of her details. Divers will dive using 3 shadowed 33 foot diving skiffs and have access to two Nitrox and two air compressors covering all of your diving needs.

Jardines Avalon III is strikingly beautiful and we are so proud of how she turned out and we very much look forward to hosting you onboard!

Tipping is widespread in Cuba. Many Cuban workers rely on tips to supplement their basic income and they all work really hard. Tips help them get a better lifestyle. So if you receive good service, it is very good etiquette to tip accordingly.
