Comments One of the best outfits in plya Picked us up at our hotel door. Equipment was included in the price. Did two cenote dives and two ocean dives. the cenote dives are with a full cave instructor with a set of doubles. I have cavern and intro to cave certs, but, my dive buddy just got his advanced open water cert. Diveing was never rushed. Some outfits down there want you in and out so that they can get to the next group.these guys emphisize No time limits, just leave 500 psi in your tank. they are very concerned that you have a nice relaxed dive.If you have never done a cenote these are the guys to do it with.You don't need a cavern cert. to do these and you can see a hole ahead and a hole behind if you need to come up.youwill change your depth often so be sure that you don't have equalization problems. Good depth management is important as, you want to stay off the bottom of the cave to keep from stirring things up, as well as of the roof to keep from breaking any stilagmites. A very good out fit to go diveing with.
