What is cenote diving ?
Cenote diving is accessible starting with level 1 certification (CMAS, FFESSM or PADI Open Water Diver). It’s an advanced start at cave diving, for everyone.
If you aren't a certified diver, no worries, you still have 3 options to visit the amazing cenotes.Certified divers will dive in easy access caves with all the specific diving gear provided (flashlights, 5 mm long wetsuits, regulators, BCD, fins, weight belt and air tanks). Tours are given respecting the highest levels of security with ample space, always close to one of the exits and numerous air holes. You will have permanent visual contact with natural light. A show and emotions are guaranteed!
Our multilingual guides have minimum 10 years experience guiding in Tulum's best cenotes. They are all full cave certified divers and some of them are also PADI or SSI instructors.
Depending on the cenotes visited, you can observe millions of limestone formations: stalactites, stalagmites, columns, fossils, prehistoric bone formations and native animal species. You will live the exceptional experience of the halocline (a natural, obvious line that divides the fresh from salt waters ), zigzag through the mangrove tree roots and discover amazing lighting effects.
Level 2 or advanced certified divers will also have access to the deepest cenotes (Angelita and Pit) and more technical ones : Dreamgate, Taak Bi Ha. The deep dive certification holding a level 1 isn't enough unfortunately. A valid level 2 or advanced certification will be required at booking to confirm the tour.
During rainy season, it's also one of the most pleasant places to be because you are in a cavern. For this reason, cenote divings aren't affected by the weather forecast and won't be last minute cancelled.
With the water being 75°F or 24°C year round, the crystal clear cenote water is the coolest option in the tropical heat of Yucatan peninsula.
