The Story

Coco Diving Center has been giving hopes and dreams to the people who have yet to explore the underwater world, and to the divers and snorkelers from around the globe who love the oceans for the past 2 decades.

Our diving center is an integral part of our community and rated #1 diving center in Cuba. Over the years, our professionalism, friendly service and care have been well noted by many new and repeat clients.

Due to the major destruction caused by Hurricane Irma (September 8-10, 2017), our diving center has been severely affected. With a lack of resources at hand, we ask for your support to help us revitalize our diving center.

With every dollar we raise from your generous donation (there is no amount too small or too big), we will repair our building, replace damaged items and restore our business as quickly as possible. Additional aid will be used to assist our neighbors and community in need.  

Please give us hope to fight against the recent devastation. Help us make our diving center and community great again.

Hello everyone,

Sorry for the delayed update. 

With everyone's generous donations here as well as from a donation jar in another dive center, I sent CDN$1000 to send to Coco Diving Center on October 4.

US$725 donation after the fees US$696.97 = CDN$845.27 (exchange rate x 1.21277)

Additional donation through a donation jar CDN$60.

Added extra CDN$94.74 to make the total wire transfer $1000. Which became 745.85CUC.

Melia Cuba has announced that they are going to reopen Melia Cayo Guillermo on October 20.  The hotel is nearly fixed. However, there is no help yet to come to Coco Diving Center, and nothing has fixed yet.

They have cleaned up debris and all the mess in and around the diving center. They are currently waiting for a construction team to come to fix the building of the diving center. 

Thank you very much for your kindness and generosity once again!!
