I did open water course and plus other 2 dives. The experience was amazing. Steve was a great instructor. Really cared that I learn everything right and that I feel comfortable with what I am doing. Communication with the shop was fast and adjusted to my requests quickly.

This was my first cenote diving experience. I'm a newly certified diver and only had 10 total dives before this. Hector was great with explaining what to expect before arriving at the cenote and once there he gave us a very thorough briefing and made sure we were comfortable with everything before the dive. Chac Mool was one of the... More

My partner and I happened upon the place and had a great experience. Our refresher course and dives were set up right away, we were provided equipment, and our instructor, Steve, was patient and knowledgeable. We had a great time and re-learned a lot! (Plus the sea turtles and sting rays and sea horses and all weren't too shabby.)
