Dive with us

Diving from here in Playa del Carmen offers three completely distinct types of diving in three completely separate locations.

We have prepared a guide to help explain the differences between the dives we offer, or if you are planning to dive for a few days then take a look at our dive packages to get a taste of everything we offer – with great discounts too!

Cozumel Direct is our daily boat service running direct to the Cozumel Marine Park – Save time and hassle compared with the ferry.

Cenote Caverns offer truly unique diving experiences. Always within sight of natural light, you will feel safe even if this is your first cavern dive.

Playa del Carmen offers stunning diving for divers of all abilities. Our guides know these reefs better than their own homes and can tailor your diving experience to ensure you have a great time.
