World-class diving and snorkeling experiences with premier accommodations at coveted 4 & 5 star resorts. That's what Pro Dive International promises visitors to Mexico's Rivera Maya and Cozumel Island. And it's not just hype. For more than 15 years this company has remained the area's largest and most diverse provider of diver-centric vacation packages and bespoke aquatic adventures.
Pro Dive operates 12 full-service PADI Five Star Dive Centers at favorite beachfront hotels in Cozumel, Playa Del Carmen and Puerto Aventuras, giving divers total access to sites on both sides of the Cozumel Channel as well as the freshwater cenotes of the Yucatan Peninsula. Pro Dive's professional team of multi-lingual dive masters and instructors provides each diver with the appropriate level of service, ensuring new divers enjoy a safe and rewarding underwater experience while allowing more experienced divers opportunities for additional discoveries.
Guests at select Cozumel beachfront hotels spaced along the western shore can board a fleet of five well-equipped launches for daily excursions to a full range of top sites from Palancar, Punta Sur and Santa Rosa to Yuca, Tormentos, Paradise Reef and more. Scheduled night dives are also available on a number of sites. On the mainland, Pro Dive operates five comfortable outboard powered dive boats that pick up at beach resorts for fast runs to area reefs such as Cueva del Pargo, Pared Verde, Tortugas, and the Mama Viña wreck.
And in addition to daily boat diving at favorite reefs and wrecks in both Cozumel and the Rivera Maya, Pro Dive offers several one-of-a-kind diving adventures. A unique diving adventure found nowhere else in the world awaits just off the shore of Playa Del Carmen each winter, where female bull sharks gather in clear water. These encounters with full-grown sharks are not staged feedings, and instead allow divers to observe the sharks' natural behaviors. Another equal-thrilling wintertime adventure is a blue water snorkel in the deep water between Cozumel and the mainland. Here swimmers can immerse themselves in the excitement of the hunt as fast-moving packs of sailfish corral schools of bait fish.
Slower-paced but equally thrilling marine life encounters take place during summer months when whale sharks congregate in waters to the north of Cancun. During whale shark season, Pro Dive International runs full-day excursions to the whale shark feeding grounds that begin with land transportation to Cancun followed by a small-group boat trip to open-water interactions. Pro Dive is considered the region's premier provider of whale shark encounters, with more than a decade of experience, an excellent safety record and a strong commitment to conservation that includes supporting the Whale Shark Project.
Another unique diving adventure that is available year-round with Pro Dive International are visits to the cenotes of the Yucatan Peninsula. Cenotes are freshwater-filled sinkholes that are the visible portions of a vast network of underwater caverns and cave systems. Expert cave divers from around the world travel to the Yuccatan to explore these underground labyrinths, but cenote diving is an experience that can also be enjoyed safely by open water divers. Many cenotes feature large partially-flooded cavern areas and deep ledges where sunlight filters deep into cavern mouths. Pro Dive's certified guides lead trips into a number of the most popular and dramatic cenotes in the Playa Del Carmen area.
Playa Del Carmen is also the site of Pro Dive's advanced education campus, where divers can pursue career tracks to divemaster, instructor and beyond at one of the premier PADI IDC centers in the Caribbean. In addition to training, the center can arrange intern opportunities at select dive resorts.
