Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    We'll meet in our technical center in Tulum town (no hotel pick up allowed because of an agreement between the divers and the taxis trade unions) at 8:30 am or 2 pm the day of the diving to try your equipment (rental included in the price) and give you a complete course how to use your equipment, safety signals, how will your body react and a briefing about the cenote we are going to dive. Then we leave together in our vehicle to Casa cenote (gorgeaous open air cenote in the middle of the mangrove with crystal clear water).

    We pay the entrance fees already included in your price.

    Once there, we'll get fully equiped and jump into the water for your first underwater experience.  Firsty we'll be sure you feel at ease, can breathe easily and once we're sure you are ok, we'll go down and begin some easy practical exercices underwater before enjoying the dive itself (more or less 45 minutes, depending on your air consumption).

    The tour ends at the technical center in Tulum town where we drop you off after the diving.
