Cave Diving Courses
Here are the options to become a NACD certified cave diver.

First course: Cavern - 2 day course
Second course: Intro to Cave - 2 day course
Third course: Full Cave - (Includes apprentice to cave & full cave) - 4 day course

If you take all three courses together then we call that the complete cave course. -8 day course.

Our suggestion as for the best training to become a certified cave diver is:
Our one week package called "Intro to Cave Plus". This package gives you four days of instruction, including the cavern and intro to cave courses and two days of experience cave diving at the intro to cave level with your instructor. Note: if you do not complete all requirements in the four days of instruction, we still have two extra days to complete the course. This helps take the pressure off, but also the experience dives are very important for a solid understanding of cave diving.

Then our second week package called "Full Cave Plus" gives you another four days of instruction and two days of experience diving at the certified cave diver level, also again with your instructor.

The best of the best is to take the above courses with the condos, food and transportation all included, so in that way we take care of all your needs and you can concentrate on cave training.

Please find below more info and prices.

Inland, an unlimited supply of fresh water cenotes led to a vast network of galleries and passageways containing breathtaking formations of stalactites and stalagmites. Rated the best fresh water diving in the world (Rodale's People's Choice Awards), these underwater caverns have stunned and amazed all divers with their beauty and impressive formations. Cavern and cave divers from around the world travel here to witness these underwater cave systems which they say are the very BEST! Besides diving and snorkeling, you can enjoy fishing, sailing and exploring the many inlets and bays.

Beautiful white sandy beaches, crystal clear water and warm tropical sun are a vacationer's delight. The Mayan archeological ruins and history add to the flavor to experience something special and unique. It's obvious that the Caribbean coast of the Yucatan peninsula creates a splendid adventure where anyone and everyone can find and enjoy the wealth of water activities and incredible tropical jungle.
