Cenotes usually offer perfect dive conditions such as crystal clear water , almost current free and 

the best visibility you could ever imagine to appreciate the beauty that it has to offer.

The temperature of fresh water is 24°C /77°F all year long. 

Passing through halocline (a halocline is the interface of fresh and salt water and when mixed produces

zero visibility), salt water is 26°C/80°F .

 

There are a few differences in the diving techniques, safety, signals and gas managment; that’s why we highly

recommend you to listen carefully to the guide’s briefing, even if you are a very experienced and highly certified diver.

 

There is also a difference between cave and cavern.

We offer both type of dives, according to your level and certifications.

1/Cavern diving

2/Cave diving

 

The general rules and limits for cenote cavern diving are :

- NO snorkel, gloves, or knives

- max 4 divers per guide

- no decompression diving

- max distance to open water : 67m/140ft

-keep your light on during the entire dive

-never pass under the guide line

- always maintain a continuous guideline to the surface

-follw the guide in a single line

-keep your position and stay at least 1.5m /5ft from the diver in front of you

  • Cave diving:

To dive in water-filled caves, a diver must use specialized equipment and specialized training.

Improperly trained divers, including open water instructors, have a very poor safety record in caves.

If you are interested in cave diving, be sure to receive the proper training (Cave Diver) from a well-respected instructor.

This underground river system is running all over the Yucatan peninsula, and just a little part of it has been explored until now,

so if you’re coming especially for cave diving, we can arrange a full week exploration or as many days you'd like.
