#5 Our Arrival in Cuba | Clearwater to Cuba Pontoon Adventure | Avalon Luxury Pontoons

September 2, 2019


While we’re here stopping, we’re gonna
just give you a little brief report, and these guys have been amazing. They have a
kind of damned torpedo attitude, but it’s really worked out. Today is a gorgeous
day, just taking a moment to do some refueling before we get there, dump all
this in there in case they have some issues with loading up fuel in the
harbor or whatever. So, we’re 20 miles outside of Cuba. So far, no jet fighters
or anything like that have come to buzz us… do they have jet fighters?
“Sure, they probably have a couple..” “We got a helicopter!” … “Do we?” Yeah, fueling in the
middle of the ocean is probably a bad sign. We’re gonna find out.. do we hear a helicopter? We have our life raft, we have procured
our life raft. It’s a rental, but it may save our lives. You might not be able to see it, but out
there is the Cuban skyline. That’s Havana. 14 miles out. 13 miles! “Thirteen, that’s my lucky number.” You ready to get on the radio? “Yeah, sure.. But I’m just gonna speak English… I don’t speak Spanish well enough to do it on the radio.” One of the first close encounters we’ve had..
a nice catamaran. They’re like, “No big deal, really.” “They weren’t like waving their arms,
‘Don’t go!'” Alight, we’re looking at under six miles to go. We can see Havana out this way. Travis now trying to take credit for this trip.. “Yeah, it’s all my idea, my planning. Basically I thought of everything so far.” Well, somebody had to. 4 miles out. Beautiful day in downtown Havana. “What do you think we’re gonna find down
there?” I think we’re gonna find some cool cars, great culture, hopefully some good food, and a cold Modelo. And here we come in. You can see already a little bit
different look to their buoys. The navigation lays are a little bit different. “Pontoon boat in Cuba!” “Here they are here, Trav.” “This is it? Customs?” We are in Cuba, baby. “You guys did it! Amazing, great job.” It just feels like the Bahamas. This is a lovely day here.

    You guys not the first ones doing that, the Cubans swim to USA all the time on the rubber boats, so nothing to be proud of 🙂
