The Yucatan Peninsula is home to the most extensive underwater cave systems in the world and there is an incredible diversity of caves dives in a relatively small region. Within an hour’s drive from the shop are caves of every color and size. There are caves filled with delicate formations and caves with smooth, scalloped walls so white they almost seem to glow. Divers can find passageways with artifacts and ice-age fossils, whole tunnels split by a halocline, and even places where the water is stained green from tannic acid. With hundreds of caves open to the public, and uncountable dives to be made in each cave, a diver could spend a lifetime in Mexico without seeing it all. Our goal is to show you as much as we can in the time that you have.

 

WHY HIRE A GUIDE?

The caves in Mexico are extremely complex. Mainlines are often hidden from the open water, and the most interesting passageways are often several jumps off the mainline. A guide helps to optimize your time in Mexico’s caves, not only by showing you interesting dives, but by helping to locate off-the-beaten-path cenotes, and navigating landowner relationships. There are also several systems that are currently inaccessible without a local guide. Transportation from the dive shop and back is included in guided dives, eliminating the need to drive a rental car down difficult roads, and in many cases, eliminating the need to rent a car completely. Cave diving is always an adventure, even for us! If you are up for jungle hikes and slightly longer days, we can to take you to locations that few divers visit.

 

WHAT DOES GUIDED CAVE DIVING INCLUDE?

A day of guided cave diving costs $195 USD for an individual diver, and $175 USD/person for groups of 2-3 divers. Included in this price are either two cave dives on doubles, or one long stage dive. Divers have their choice of manifolded doubles or side mount tanks with modular valves and hardware already in place, and all tanks are filled with 32% EANx to reduce diver fatigue and facilitate longer dives at intermediate depths. Gear storage in our large, clean equipment room is included, and we have plenty of outlets for you to charge your light overnight at the shop. Of course, guided cave diving includes transportation from the dive shop and back. Not included in guiding prices are entrance fees, which vary greatly between dive sites from $80 pesos for the day to $50 USD/dive (an average price per a day for entrance fees would be $15 USD). This allows us to offer you your choice of dive sites every day.
