Scuba Playa Cenote Dive Overview
If you are looking for a truly unique scuba diving adventure, join our bilingual dive masters for a one-of-a-kind excursion to the splendid cenotes in the wilds of the Yucatan Peninsula. Cenotes, remarkable flooded limestone caverns, are rare natural wonders that can found in few places on the planet. Our dive masters have extensive experience guiding certified scuba diving enthusiasts into these dream-like underwater environments where you can witness incredible rock formations, including stalagmites, stalactites and tremendous columns. You will be astounded by the beauty as you swim through these mysterious caverns. The streams of sunlight that illuminate this submerged world create an amazing visual effect.
In some cenotes, the fresh water in the cavern can merge with saltwater at lower levels. At these points, called the halocline, divers will enjoy a visual distortion effect. On this tour, you will have the opportunity to visit two different cenotes, most likely Gran Cenote and Nahoch Nah Chich Cenote.
Once important ceremonial sites for ancient Mayans, these cenotes were created by erosion in the limestone that forms the Yucatan Peninsula. Once a massive reef, the peninsula is now home to the most extensive underground river systems on the globe.
Your excursion will not only include two tanks' worth of diving at two different cenote sites deep in the jungle, but also transportation, lunch, soft drinks, and entrance fees. This region is world-renowned for its spectacular coral reefs dive sites, but the cenotes offer divers a truly rare opportunity for a unique diving experience.
