    What to Expect

    We'll meet in our dive center. You'll try all your equipment with your instructor who will then make on sight a complete briefing about how to use your gear, safety and teach some basic skills. You will learn together how to face unexpected events and how to communicate with your instructor underwater. Once this done, we'll leave together with our vehicle to an open air cenote in the middle of the mangrove : casa cenote (15 minutes from Tulum). There we'll get equiped and get into the water all together to begin your first diving.
    You'll observe mangrove roots from below, tropical endemic fishes, some small caverns, amazing plays of light in a crystal clear water.
