For those seeking SOMETHING DIFFERENT, here are some exciting options:
CENOTE OR CAVERN DIVING
The largest underground river system in the world, the “d’zenots” in Maya, “cenotes” in Spanish, is the main attraction for scuba divers visiting the Yucatan Peninsula. Centuries ago, rain water on its way to the Caribbean Sea formed cavities in the limestone of the Yucatan Peninsula by hollowing out caves, creating fantastic formations. When parts of the caves grew too large, their ceiling collapsed and cenotes and sinkholes were formed.
The gentle current and mild water temperature (about 75º F / 24º C) create a perfect underwater environment for divers of all experience levels which offers endless opportunities for spectacular views.
Unlike cave diving, which demands advanced technical training and highly specialized gear, cavern, or cenote diving requires only an Open Water certification.
You would take the 7:00 am ferry from Cozumel and be greeted at the ferry pier in Playa del Carmen by our sister company and transported from there to the first cenote site, then you will be given a light lunch and beverages and do your second dive at a different location, then back to the ferry pier in Playa for a return to Cozumel on the 4 or 5 pm ferry.
Cenote Dive: $130 per person + equipment rentals
You will be responsible for the ferry ticket which is about $16 US each way per person.
SPECIAL TRIPS - for Experienced Divers
Explore the lesser known and less visited reefs on the far South like Punta Sur, Maracaibo and Chunchakaab, and Barracuda and San Juan to the North.
These sites are for advanced divers only, due to stronger currents, depth, narrow swim-thru’s, etc. You will be required to dive with us before we take you to these sites.
See Dive Packages for pricing information.
