Expedition Dives

For Expedition Dive we mean cave diving activity in all those caves located over the classic or touristic circuit, far from paved roads, reacheble only by walking in the jungle carrying the diving equipment.

This type of activity could be strenuous, as walking in the jungle is not likewise to walk on a paved road; often the access to the water could be not easy, due to the fact that those cenotes have never been open to the public.
Actually in these caves have been only few divers, and in some passage just the explorer; this gives you the view of a virgin cave.

There is a bearers service, dedicated to the cyilinders transportation only.
