To extract the maximum enjoyment from any given dive,
expert knowledge of the site is critical. This knowledge is not something
that is acquired quickly, rather over time and multiple exposures to the
varying conditions which may present themselves in unexpected situations.
If we are to consider safety it is clear that great knowledge of a site
fortifies our understanding and ability to prepare for and deal with any
event or situation that may present itself. For years I have dedicated
all my time and efforts to my passion of exploration and understanding
of these cherished natural wonders
-Deep Ocean Diving
-Recreational Caribbean Reef Diving
The Yucatan peninsula is home to a great number of water filled caves
produced by what may be termed a privileged geological process. Thousands
of cenotes hide within their labyrinth of endless passages an undescribable
beauty and enchantment. Enjoy being guided within these sacred sites taking
advantage of the wealth of insight and knowledge gained from an experienced
guide. CERTIFIED CAVE DIVERS ONLY.
Some of the cenotes we can explore:
Sak Aktun (Grand Cenote)
Aktun Ha (Carwash)
Temple of Doom
Cenote of the Sun
and many, many more
The ecosystems of the CENOTES are not exclusively available only
to divers with specialized training in caves. The possibility to
dive in the entrances of these subterranean worlds has become very
popular in recent years for the recreational or open water diver.
Accompanied by a specially trained guied you can dive in the natural
sunlight bathed zone of the cenote. All the cenotes are different,
but you can be sure of seeing an impressive light show, crystal
clear water and some caverns impossibly intricate speleothem formations
or even the incredible effect of the halocline.
1. Pre-dive briefing covering the following:
General and historical information on cenotes and their formation over
time and critical role in our aquifer, accident analysis (history of diving
in caves and caverns), dive procedures (body position, comunication, gear
modification, limits, philosophy, etc.)
2. In-water, pre dive:
Bubble check, buoyancy check, diveplan review, gas management.
3. One or two dives to depths of 5 to 17m/15 to 60ft, with a surface interval
of 60 minutes.
STANDARDS FOR CAVERN TOURS:
Maximum 4 divers per guide
Always within direct view of natural sunlight
Rule of thirds
Always a continuous guideline to the surface
Maximum depth 30 m/100ft.
Minimum starting visibility 10 m/30ft.
Minimum starting gas volume of 50 cubic feet.
DEEP OCEAN DIVING:
Dives to all levels using air, nitrox and trimix.
If the caves weren't enough, the area is blessed with the multitude of
adventures of the Caribbean Sea. With coral walls that start in shallow
waters and drop to depths beyond 200m/600ft, you'll find substantial populations
of turtles, sharks, mantas and large pelagics. All dives will be conducted
with strict adherance to the maximum certification level of the diver.
Oxygen is always onboard, with small group sizes. TRIMIX dives conducted
with maximum 2 divers per guide.
RECREATIONAL REEF DIVING:
Bathed in the warm Caribbean, the Riviera Maya is one of
the most popular dive destinations in the world. A vast coral reef
(part of the second longest in the world) runs along the coast,
tempting the recreational diver with easily accessed beautiful sites
from shallow patch reefs to deeper walls. Magnificent corals and
sponges, an abundance of reef critters, large fish like schooling
tarpon and jacks, lots of turtles, sharks and rays can be found
in many distinct and well known sites. We only work with small groups,
of course, with a personal touch. Private service, multilevel dives,
night dives, drift dives... the options abound. All recreational
PADI courses available. Oxygen is always onboard. My experience
with more than 1000 dives on these local reefs guarantees a pleasant
and secure experience.
