There are four types of boobies that have been reported seen on the seas surrounding Cuba. They include the Northern Gannet and it is included as a member of the booby family. The boobies are large seabirds, known for their high dives from extreme heights into the waters below, shaping their bodies into dart-like forms in order to capture fish.

The other three boobies are the Red-footed Booby, Brown Booby and the Masked Booby, and can all be seen on nesting grounds in the Dry Tortugas, located on a group of sandy islands off the coast of the Florida Keys.
