EXPERIENCE CENOTE DIVING
Planning to visit the Riviera Maya?
Then you cannot miss the unforgettable experience of diving the MAGICAL and legendary Cenotes. If you are a diver, diving in Cenotes is in the top of ‘MUST dives’ in every diver’s Bucket List!
The name Cenote means ‘Sacred well’ and protected by the mischievous spirits of the jungle – the Aluxes. When you see these Cenote gems, you will know why! It’s mother nature in High Definition! Mayans believed these Cenotes were portals to speak with the gods.
The Yucatan Peninsula is estimated to have anywhere from 5.000 to 8.000 Cenotes of which less than 5% have been registered.
In the Riviera Maya we have close to 20 different Cenote Dives available for Certified Open Water Divers, all mind blowing and each with its own amazing characteristics. From haloclines to sulphydric acid clouds, all kinds of speleothems such as
stalactites and stalagmites, fossils, signs of human activity from when the Cenotes where dry, crystal clear water with visibility boosting over 100 meters / 330 feet, no currents and shallow depths. Furthermore, the weather does not affect diving in Cenotes, the cavern diving conditions here are simply perfect all year round!
At Divers UnderGround, we offer private Cenote Diving tours to all Cenotes available for recreational cavern diving. Our guides are experienced Cave Divers and Scuba Diving Instructors with thousands of dives under their belt. Some of us are actually Cave Diving and Technical Diving Instructors. We are always helping divers improve their skills, when you dive Cenotes with us we will explain some of the specialized techniques for safe cavern diving and give you tips and pointers on how to finetune your diving equipment and the way you dive.
