Cavern diving is a unique experience.
Cenotes, which can be found only in this part of the world, offer certified sports divers the opportunity to discover the wonders of the cave underwater world!
Almost all caverns can be taken by certified sports divers without further training with one of our professional guides in the daylight zone of the caves.
Our Cavern Guides are trained FullCave divers and are also instructors with hundreds or thousands of dives.
Group sizes are limited to a maximum of four divers plus the guide.
The diving in the Cenotes offers a whole new diving experience which you probably never have experienced before . So do not miss the opportunity to do a cvern dive during your stay on the Riviera Maya.
Guidelines for safe cavern diving
As with other riskier activities, there are standards and safety guidelines for cavern diving and compliance with these rules are essential for the preservation of the caves and for safe diving.
- Size ratio of the group maximum 4: 1 (4 divers plus dive guide)
- Dives must always remain within the daylight zone
- Use of the third rule (one-third of the air is used to enter the cavern, one third to the exit, and one third to reserve)
- Maximum depth 90 ft
- Maximum distance to water surface 180ft
- No restrictions (2 divers must be able to pass at all times with full equipment)
- Visibility of at least 35 ft
- Permanently installed guide line (the main line must never be left)
- No decompression dives
- Diver must be equipped with at least one flashlight (the sun or daylight is the primary source of light)
- Never make a cavern dive at night. Without daylight, the cavern becomes a cave that can only be dived by divers with a fullcave certification.
- Comfort is a priority. If you are not feeling well, signal your dive guide. This is no shame.
