What is a Cavern Dive?
The cavern zone is the transitional area between the open water area of
the Cenote and the dark zone of the Cave.
A Cavern dive is different from both an Open Water dive and a Cave dive.
Cavern Diving is different from open water diving as you will be diving in an overhead environment without direct access to the surface during portions of the dive.
For this reason it is very important that you only Cavern Dive with a properly certified guide who will give you a thorough pre dive briefing which will include the procedures and safety rules to ensure that your dive is both enjoyable and safe.
If you wish to dive in the Caverns of the Riviera Maya without a guide then you will first have to complete a
Cavern Diver Course where you will learn all the skills and knowledge to dive safely in this environment.
If you wish to Cave Dive then further training and specialist equipment beyond the Cavern Course will be required to do so safely.
The only danger in Cavern Diving is, that like us you may never want to leave!
