Cenote Dive (2 Tanks - Single Day) Trip Summary
Cenotes are natural sinkholes resulting from the collapse of the limestone bedrock, characteristic of the Yucatan Peninsula. Crystal clear freshwater runs gently through the cenotes which are filled with amazing underwater structures, including stalactites, stalagmites, columns, and fossils. The play of light filtering from above and the halocline, which is the blurry water where fresh and saltwater meet, create a unique experience for all divers.
Your cenote trip starts with the 7 am ferry from Cozumel to Playa del Carmen. There you will be met by a representative of our partner dive op by the Sr. Frogs restaurant at the base of the ferry pier. You'll take a short van ride to the dive center where you will gear up with wetsuits and all needed dive equipment for Cenote Diving. Then you are just a short drive away, from these amazing dive sites, located in the rich, mysterious jungles.
After your dive briefing from the dive guide, you'll gear up and venture into the cenote. To maximize safety and fun, you will enjoy two separate dives in two different areas in small groups of around four divers. There will be a 30-minute break in between dives, for a sandwich and refreshments.
