We have been discovering, enjoying and sharing unique experiences through diving, paddle surfing, kayaking and snorkeling for more than 10 years. Without stopping there, we also offer guided tours of the most spectacular archaeological sites in the region and, perhaps, the entire world.
Our service is personalized, professional, safe and with highly competitive rates. We know how to create an adventure and turn it into one of your most unforgettable experiences. We have a special love for exploring cenotes, rivers, oceans and lagoons in the area and we want to share that joy with you.
