Scuba Diving Playa del Carmen Riviera Maya

If you are going to scuba dive in the Riviera Maya in the beautiful Caribbean reefs you must come diving in Playa Del Carmen, Riviera Maya.  Its only a 35 minute ferry ride from Cozumel to Playa Del Carmen and we are within 40 minutes from Cancun, Tulum, Puerto Aventuras and Akumal.   You will not forget this experience in your lifetime !  Diving in Playa Del Carmen has beautiful ocean reefs and caverns / cenotes diving to offer.

Scuba Diving in the open water Tortuga reef 5 minutes by boat from our dive shopof the Caribbean is an experience hard to forget.  Some of the dives are drift dive. Others you can see hundreds of turtles or maybe you want to go through some beautiful arches in the bottom of the sea.  It is all possible in Playa Del Carmen and the Riviera Maya. Scuba Dive Prices

If you are new to Scuba Diving we have great instructors. You can take a crash course called Discover Scuba Diving and dive with one of our instructors in just a few hours to a maximum depth of 30 feet. Or you can do an Open Water Course (3 to 4 days ).  If you live in a place that is just not conducive to doing your open water dives come here and relax in the Caribbean and do your Referral Course (2 days).  If you just want to gain more experience you can do the Advanced Open Water, Rescue Diver, or your DiveMaster Course.

Cenotes - Caverns - Caves

Cenote ChackMool only 20 minutes from Playa del CarmenThis diving area on the Riviera Maya just across the waters from Cozumel has the most amazing cavern / cenote diving in the world.  These caverns have no current, the water is crystal clear, the water temperature is 25 Celsius (78 Fahrenheit) and the average depths is 35 feet (10 meters ) all this makes for a very easy and comfortable diving experience.  One that you will never forget. The biggest misconception is that you need a special certificate. All you need is an open water certification to experience the pristine cenotes / caverns . Check out our Diving packages.

The word "Cenote" is pronounced, say-no-tay and is derived from  the Mayan word, "Dzonot" which means sacred well. A combination of  various geological events and  climate changes created an incredible and unique ecosystem in Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula.
