TDI Full Cave Diver or Razor Basic Cave Diver in the Cenotes

All passionate cave divers will travel to Mexico. Of course, we did too! And we liked it so much that we chose to live and dive in Yucatan near the cenotes of Tulum to fulfill our passion for Cave diving.

Cave Diving Training is for you if you are a serious adventure seeker wishing to explore overhead environments! The peninsula of Yucatan hosts the longest underwater caves in the world. A lifetime would not be enough to know them all; there is much more to be discovered. At Deep Dark Diving, We love sharing our passion and guiding you in the most amazing passages in the Cenotes of Tulum and its surroundings. And we provide high-quality cave diving training with a high commitment to security and conservation. 

Caverns and Caves are amazing, beautiful, and ever-fascinating places on earth. But they are very challenging environments to explore. Even more challenging is when you explore the underwater caverns and caves and decide to be among the lucky few!

Be aware that your cave diving in Mexico might be addictive 🙂 And we’ll do our best to make that happen safely and share our passion.
