Best dive sites in Yucatán Peninsula

Punta Cancun – This is a popular spot with divers and provides access to several dive sites and some healthy coral reefs. Located at the eastern end of Cancun's hotel zone, the reefs contain colorful coral formations and you can hang out with a diverse array of marine life, including barracuda, rays and sharks. Punta Nizuc – This site is famous for its snorkeling and diving, thanks to an offshore reef that is rife with abundant marine life. Depths average 10 m/30 ft and the great visibility makes this a spectacular spot where divers meet lobster, groupers, rays, sergeant majors and a host of other marine life. At Punta Nizuc art meets coral reef conservation and divers can visit a statue of a young girl lying in a coral garden. She’s part of an underwater museum, Museo Subacuático de Arte, that’s well worth exploring. Playa del Carmen, Akumal and Tulum – South of Cancun, Playa del Carmen is a bustling town with a European vibe. Akumal and Tulum are seaside villages that offer a glimpse into the Yucatan of yesterday. Generally, the dive sites here are shallow with excellent visibility, and boat rides are as short as five minutes. You’re likely to see turtles, barracuda, stingrays, lobsters and nurse sharks. Pared Verde – Sloping rivers of sand divide sections of the wall which is well populated with coral, sponges and myriad macro invertebrates. Depths to 40 m/130 ft are possible and the currents can be strong. Larger pelagic species are frequently seen here, given the reef’s location in the middle of a sandy plain. Cenotes – If you want to try something truly special, dive a cenote. These deep, freshwater-filled sinkholes formed when the roofs of limestone caverns collapsed and filled with water. The Yucatan’s elaborate cenotes have intricate cave systems and underground tunnels that draw divers from around the globe. Many cenotes boast pristine turquoise waters and a beautiful array of stalagmites and stalactites formed over millions of years.

Snorkeling in Yucatán Peninsula

Non-divers will find plenty of reasons to enter the water in the Yucatan Peninsula. From shore, you’ll be able to access the region’s best reefs and even take a dip in a cenote. If you happen to be in the area from June to September, make sure to take a day trip to Isla Mujeres to snorkel with whale sharks. There are also trips to the deep sea for snorkeling with sailfish for something a little different.

We are a new diving operation that centers your experience as the top priority. We are a dive center created by friends and ocean lovers as you are. Hence, we are not the typical dive center you find in Cancun. Our operation is not crowded and we dedicate our time and resources so you get a magnificent time underwater.

We provide our services with equipment properly serviced, boats in great conditions, practical facilities, following PADI and DAN safety standards, and by using the most rescent tools to deliver training. This allows us to make things faster and give you a better service.

All our services include snacks (fruit, water, sport drinks, protein bars), Scuba Equipment (mask, fins, BCD, Regulator, weights and wetsuit); but also, all tax fees. Meaning that there are no hidden prices; you get what you paid for.

We have a combined experience of 10+ years diving around Cancun and other parts of the world. But we selected Cancun as our base because there is nothing like home. 

Diving in Cancun is splendid, with light-filled waters and a great diversity of marine life, dive sites and dive conditions. These allows you to work on a variety of different scenarios that will give you a unique and useful experience. However, most of the time you can expect great visibility and calm conditions. 

Also, for those in search of drift, wreck or cave diving we have options for every type of dive. 

We invite you to book now your next PADI adventure and expirience it yourself.
