Scuba Diving in Playa del Carmen
Would you like to learn to scuba dive along the reefs of Playa del Carmen? Train to become a certified Cave Diver or Technical Diver?
Beyond Diving is not just another dive center in Playa del Carmen. Whether you want to learn to scuba dive, or you want to become a more proficient diver, we are here to help. We offer training courses through PADI and IANTD.
Beyond Diving Dive Center is personally attended by the owners who are passionate divers and dive instructors. All of our rental equipment is top of the line. Our BCD's, wetsuits, fins and masks are Aqualung and our regulators are Apeks. The way we see it, if we wouldn't use our own rental equipment, neither should our guests. We want you to have a completely safe and enjoyable experience while you are our guest. We dont want you to worry about the condition of the rental equipment.
We are not a cattle boat operation. We have always worked under the principle that scuba diving should be an enjoyable activity for all involved. Be it the instructor, divemaster or our divers, we want everybody to have a great time during the dives. That is why we have set a limit of no more than 4 divers per instructor/guide ever! Also, we want to get to know you! We want to help you become a better diver even if you don't take a course with us. We will help you fine tune your buoyancy, get the proper weight you need for your dive and maximize your dive time! After all, you have come all this way, so we want to make sure your dive lasts as long as possible (within safety limits).
We are convenientely located in the heart of the Riviera Maya in Playa del Carmen.
Whether you are interested in diving some beautiful ocean reefs, diving or snorkeling the caverns and caves of our world famous Cenotes, the adrenaline of scuba diving with bull sharks (Carcharhinus leucas) (November to March), technical diving, increasing and perfecting your skills by taking a specialty course (or many!) or snorkelling with the world's biggest fish, the whale shark (May to September), you are in the right place.
Our specialty is diving in the cenotes. With crystal clear water, and visibility in excess of 100 meters (300+ feet), little-to-no current and amazing rock formations, your cavern dives in the cenotes will be hard to top. Let one of our certified and experienced guides take you beneath the ground and explore the beauty of the cenotes.
Playa del Carmen Scuba Diving is awesome! Drift diving is king! Come check out our beautiful ocean reefs or the famous Mama Vina wreck and experience it for yourself. Let us introduce you to some of our resident mooray eels (giants!), sea turtles, and assorted species of colorful reef fish and invertebrates.
Also, you can make a difference by joining us in one of our Lionfish hunting trips, where we go out specifically to try to help control the population of these invasive and extremely destructive fish. Afterwards, we may even feast on some fresh ceviche!
