Our Cuba – Caribbean Endemics Birding tours target almost all 28 Cuban endemic birds and further 23 Caribbean specials, as well as great wintering North American migrants. Using the services of local bird specialists at each site, we guarantee an impressive success rate in observing the island’s amazing avian diversity. From the world’s tiniest bird (the Bee Hummingbird) to such sought-after species as Giant Kingbird, the cute Cuban Tody, the beautiful Cuban Trogon, Gundlach’s Hawk, Oriente and Yellow-headed Warbler, Zapata Wren and no less than four species of stunning quail-doves, Cuba is an absolute pleasure to bird. On this tour we will cover a wide variety of habitats, ranging from interior tropical forests and mangroves, to extensive wetlands and white sand beaches along the northern coral cays. The awesome birdlife is further augmented by ease of travel, comfortable lodges, fascinating culture, a turbulent history, vintage cars that take one back to the 50’s and friendly people.

2023 Tour price is an estimate and will change. Tour dates could be adjusted.

The more we got to know Chris as the tour progressed, the more fun we had. We found the birds and we did not neglect their enjoyment once we found them, and we also remembered to have fun with each other as well. We laughed a lot! The group chemistry was very good, and I believe Chris Sharpe played a major part in that outcome.

Honestly, this was a tremendous experience! The tour was extremely well organised and balanced, the guide, Dušan Brinkhuizen, was excellent and very professional, and the local guides also impressed me. I look forward to travelling with Rockjumper again.

Dušan was great. He took charge of the group with enthusiasm. His birding skills are excellent. The office staff were super in responding to emails and answering questions. I have told my birding friends to consider Dušan and Rockjumper when they schedule their next trip.

This was an excellent trip. I couldn't have written a better story. Our guide, Chris Sharpe, was knowledgeable in birds and other scientific topics. He was very keen on details of our arrangements and itinerary, keeping our time productive and enjoyable. He had a very pleasant demeanour, was enthusiastic about the birds we were searching for, and was a good story teller, which helped make the whole experience a lot of fun.

Tuomas was constantly on the birds, even during our long drives. He was infectiously enthusiastic throughout the tour and able to get even the most difficult in our group on the birds. He was also flexible, tweaking the itinerary when the opportunities arose to ensure we got all the target birds. This flexibility is critical to a well-executed tour and does not happen often enough.
