What You Can Expect

Cancun 2-Tank Cenote (Cave) Dive

Cancun 2-Tank Cenote (Cave) Dive

Explore the Yucatan’s famous underground cavern system with an expert guide. Plunge beneath the waves on a 2-tank cavern dive of Cancun’s cenotes, sinkholes that lead to massive underwater caverns. Just like the caverns on land, cenotes have interesting topographic features including stalactites, stalagmites and haloclines, an aquatic phenomenon that occurs from fresh water sitting on top of salt water, creating a spectacular, swirling, filmy effect.

Your guide will lead you into the depths of this magnificent underwater world and explain how the cenotes were central to the life of the Mayan. They provided the Yucatan’s indigenous people with water, hiding places and ceremonial venues. After you’ve plunged to the depths of the cenotes, lunch is included at a small palapa lunch area.

Please note: this dive is for certified divers only.

Amazing best dive I've ever done. I don't know of many places of the world for cave diving. Inside the xenote the phenomenon of fresh water on top of salt water is mind blowing. It looks like a lake at the bottom of the water. The guide Hector was super friendly and made me feel safe.

3 star rating: Worth doing July 2013

The actual diving was good. The Cenotes were amazing. But the operators (company you subcontract) need to step up. Equipment didn't look trustworthy which is extremely important due to the tremendous risks of having something failed underwater undercavern. Wetsuits with holes and regulators attached with tie wraps not good at all. Also the bathrooms of the installation (in store and in the cenote area) were simply deplorable. We had to go downhill down stairs and to the cenote and back up with two buckets of water to drain the toilett. They should put more effort on keeping the area decent for tourists and for them.
