Cenotes The Pit & Dos Ojos

By far our favorite cenote combination!

$220.00 $199.00

Duration: 5-7 Hours

Experience Level: Advanced Open Water diver or 25 logged dives (15 years old)

Dive Type: Cenote/Cavern

What's included? The trip includes 2 tanks, weights, snacks, water, park entrance, and a great guide that is at least Instructor and Full Cave certified.

Located very close to Tulum and only 40 minutes from Playa del Carmen, The Pit (video) is a dramatic site to see as the water level is a couple of stories below the outer rim of the cenote. From the surface looking down you can see the infinite abyss below. This site is deep, very deep, and therefore suitable for advanced divers, or those wishing to expand their deep diving experience. At about 100ft/30mt, there is a thin layer of hydrogen sulfide which looks like a thin white cloud. The Pit also has a huge cavern chamber with a ceiling and very large stalactites. That coupled with the crystal clear water makes for a site that will leave any diver in awe.

Very close to the Pit are the Dos Ojos Cenotes, meaning ‘Two Eyes’ in Spanish, where we will go for the second dive. The cenotes get their name from the 2 small openings that are very close to each other within the park. These holes are linked to each other and it is very easy to swim between them. The cavern dives at either the Barbie Line or the Bat Cave are some of the most famous in the entire area. The site is beautifully decorated and is also very popular amongst snorkelers. The average depth here is less than 30 ft/10 mt.

    Best all around experience! My experience with Blue Life started weeks before traveling to Playa Del Carmen. Andrea was extremely responsive to the multitude of questions that I had about the area and the recommendations for our trip. Because of this response and attention, I felt I was visiting old friends when I finally made it to Playa. But the best part was the Cenote dives with Hugo. He proved to be the most fantastic guide and dive partner around. If you are looking for a terrific experience with excellent customer service and amazing dive experiences, Blue Life has it all!

    Dive. Blue life playa del carmon I have gotta say I have done alot of dives, and Blue life made it seamless. Everything was well organized and easy. There gear was in great shape and taken care of. Hugo was the man, he knew everything about everywhere we went. It was the first time I have dove a cenote.....wow, it was mind blowing. Hugo made it a very comfortable Experiance. If you are thinking about diving in playa, cozumel or cenotes you need to hook up with Blue Life, these guys are no joke. Thanks again for making my dives awsome, blue life and hugo. Bruce

    I had a great experience with the entire team at BlueLife. I did 4 reef dives (2 at Playa and 2 at Cozumel) with Valentina, 2 cenote dives with Hugo, and also did the whale shark snorkeling up in Isla Mujeres. Everyone was very professional, prepared, thorough, and communicated very clearly about all aspects of the activities. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone looking for a great experience from beginning to end!

    Lovely people, spectacular diving These guys were really great to us, I highly recommend doing dives with them if you\'re staying in Playa del Carmen, whatever your experience level. We did dives with Steve, Rodrigo, Vale and Hugo, and all were super easy to get along with, informative and ensured we were able to do all the stuff we wanted to, plus some awesome stuff we hadn\'t originally planned. Particular highlights were the Santa Rosa wall at Cozumel and \"The Pit\" Cenote, to pick out just a couple. We were so impressed with these guys that we continued to do dives with them even after moving on to Tulum. Our trip wouldn\'t have been the same without them!

    Heavenly diving experience! I did nine fabulous dives with Blue Life - 2 reef dives with Gustavo and 7 cenote dives with Vale. The customer service was excellent from the first email contact with Andrea. The instructors took patient care of me every step of the way, even through issues with my ears and congestion. I can\'t say enough good things about the cenote dives. Fantastic, each one a different world. We visited 6 cenotes in all - Calavera, Car Wash, the Pit (my favorite), 2 dives in Dos Ojos, Ponderosa (Jardin del Eden) and Taj Maha. This was my first cenote experience after years of reef diving, and I\'m so glad I did it. The beauty and other-worldly quality of these places is hard to describe. Such a transformative experience. Vale took such awesome care of me I felt pampered through every dive. Blue Life is a great dive shop and I will certainly dive with them again on my next trip. Such friendly people who take good care of their customers. And, after all, there are more cenotes to see!

    Had three days of fun diving with Blue Life and really enjoyed everything! I had a private freediving training session, two local playa dives, two Cozumel dives and two Cenote dives, while my bf got his OW certification here. Everything went smoothly - the instructors are very nice and patient, trying their best to make us comfortable and enjoy the dives. They also organize trips very efficiently and did a fantastic job introducing us various dives! If come back again to Playa, will go with these guys again!

    Friendly and professional Dive Operator in Playa Del Carmen I booked a couple of days diving in the cenotes around Playa del Carmen and Tulum and I was not disappointed! The staff is very professional and the dive guides fully trained, they speak perfect english and always made us feel at ease in the water as well as outside. The whole experience was a real pleasure, diving underground can be stressful but our guide (Valentina) knew exactly where to take us and where to stop for a nice snack too. I also booked a whale shark snorkelling trip via BlueLife and was again very very happy, even if the day was not managed directly by BlueLife.

    Amazing! I did the two-cavern diving trip (Dos Ojos and The Pit), and I can\'t say enough good things. The company was super organized and attentive in helping me prep for the trip and making sure I had what I needed. My guide was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly, and the dive sites were absolutely stunning -- both in very unique and different ways. And I ended up being the only diver, so it felt like I was getting a private full-day excursion. Start to finish just an amazing experience. Definitely recommend trying cenote-diving if you\'re an ocean diver looking to experience something totally different, definitely recommend Blue Life to take you on that trip.

    Blue Life has set the bar for dive shops. The quality of service is amazing! Our trip started with Andrea, who seems to be able to answer any question at any time of day, being extremely responsive and helpful. Arriving at the shop, we were greeted by Leo. I considered Leo the MVP of this all-star team. He helped with equipment, answered questions, and even went out of his way to escort others in my group to see a doctor. Some of our gear was temporarily lost by the airline, but he offered to deal with the airline to ensure that everything was delivered directly to the shop. Our first 2 days in the water was with Hugo for TDI Sidemount certification. You can tell this guy loves his job. Hugo is laid back and patient, but also very encouraging at the same time. Even though I was only able to do the Sidemount course, he was preparing me for more in-depth Cavern/ Cave courses that I would eventually take. I was never really interested in tech diving before, but Hugo has inspired me to go further. After completing the Sidemount course, we did the Taste of Riviera Maya with Steve for sites in Playa Del Carmen on the first day and Cozumel on the second day. Steve was great in explaining all the details of the dives up front, and knew just about every fish we would encounter. He executed his dive plan flawlessly. In Cozumel, we drifted for about 1.5 miles for our first dive and 2.5 miles for our second. The last day of TRM was cenotes El Pit and Dos Ojos with Daniel. Daniel was also very careful to explain the history and details of his sites. His excitement for diving the cenotes was infectious. He even spent a little time at the end to help me with my back fin technique, which I still can\'t do, but not from lack of effort on Daniel\'s part. Finally, our last day with Blue Life was to snorkel with Whale Sharks, and even though this excursion was outsourced to another group, they still exhibited the same level of quality, hospitality, and passion that Blue Life did. My time with Blue Life was a life changing experience, being able to do/ see things that I never thought I could. Everything is top notch. The guides did not just ask us to follow them and then point out things to look at, which is perfectly acceptable experience. But went above and beyond in that they are sincere about educating not just about the area and history, but always offering guidance on how to improve as a diver. They will not hesitate to spend a few extra days with you to get stuff right. Our Sidemount course with Hugo was scheduled for 2 days, but he was prepared to go an extra day if needed. The same was offered to my older brother during his Open Water course. Hospitality was 5 star at Blue Life. I hardly had to lift a finger, and all the food options they provided were great. I would not be exaggerating when I said that they all treated us like family. This is a very special shop and I can\'t wait to go back. Thank you again Blue Life!

    Cenotes Amazing day out with Blue Life. One of my favourite dive experiences to date! Communicating with Andrea was seamless before arriving in Mexico. I did The Pit and Dos Ojos with Hugo. He was very friendly and made for a great day out. As a guide he is amazing, he understood my experience level and therefore gave me space to explore and take in the wonders. Would 100% recomend and would dive with Blue Life again.

    Cenote cavern dive - The Pit and Dos Ojos We dived The Pit and Dos Ojos with Blue Life on 29 June. Hugo was our guide for the day and ensured that everything ran faultlessly. Diving a Cenotes has been on my wish list since first learning to dive and I can absolutely state that it was one of the best dive experiences I have had. If I had more time available, I would be looking at diving more of these sites and have no hesitation in recommending Blue Life or Hugo to my diving friends. Thank you for an amazing experience!!! and I am aiming to return to do more in the future.....

    We just finished our second trip diving with Blue life. On the first trip they set us up with some great guides that took us to some beautiful cenotes, diving with bull sharks, a night dive and some great reef dives. On the second trip I completed the cavern course with Hugo. He was an amazingly effective, kind and patient instructor. I left there with huge improvements in my knowledge and skills. This truly is top notch instruction. I will definitely choose Blue Life again for the Intro to Cave and Full Cave courses in the future. Valentina took us on some fun dives in the cenotes, a night dive and a wreck dive in Cozumel. She provided amazing pre-dive briefings and really ensured a great dive experience. She also did an excellent job instructing my partner with her wreck dive specialty. What I like best about Blue Life is that they always keep the groups very small and they employ only top tier guides. Definitely the best dive shop I have ever been to.

    Superb Diving with a Great Team So, three months ago I was planning a trip to Mexico and wanted to get some diving in, and to include the Cenotes that I had heard so much about. After trawling the reviews on the net I came across Blue Life based almost on the beach in Playa del Carmen. I contacted them via email from the UK with a prompt and very professional and informative response from Andrea, so booked my slots. 3 days with 2 tanks per day, one local, another in Cozumel and the final in the Cenotes. The guides Misael & Vale (sorry if spelt these wrong) were nothing less than skilled professionals who love their jobs, the equipment, boats were all in good order and had six fantastic dives, Cozumel & Cenotes are truly outstanding, so good I think I will come back next year and will book again with Blue Life. Thank you so much for three memorable days Te veo pronto

    Diving in Blue Life We spent 3 days diving with Blue Life in Nov 2017. The entire team was awesome and the owner Frank is a really nice guy. Pepe was our dive master for most of that time and I can\'t say enough great stuff about him. They were very professional and provided a very memorable experience. We had such a great time that we are planning to go back much sooner than expected. This time we will spend much more time in the cenotes.

    Great Experience Blue Life is a great dive shop. I highly recommend them for diving if you are in the Playa del Carmen area. I went with them for dive trip to Cozumel. The price was reasonable, the dive master, Flor, was very knowledgeable, safety conscious and professional. She took the time to explain the local area regulations, currents, dive safety concerns and procedures. The dives were fantastic, and despite bad weather, I had a wonderful experience. Because my first experience was so good, I booked another dive trip a few days later to dive in the Dos Ojos cenote. Once again the dive master/guide was very knowledgeable, safety conscious and professional. I was a bit apprehensive having never done any cavern diving. Bob took the time to ensure that I understood the safety briefing was comfortable with everything before proceeding. It was a pleasure to deal with Blue Life and I would highly recommend them to anyone wishing to go diving with a certified dive outfit in the area. I will be back the next time I am in the area.

    Great divecenter, even better guides! We had 10 dives with these guys, including Cozumel sites, a bullshark dive, and 6 different cenotes. All of them were perfect, and our guides and contact persons were professional, yet friendly and very flexible. We thank Leo, Misa, Hugo and Pepe for the good time and dives we had. The center is at a good location, close to the sea, it has good wifi, and nitrox and 15l tanks are complementary We had some rescheduling because the wind made the sea too wavey for diving, but we had constant updates from bluelife. They don\'t do the bullshark feeding, so we decided to do this with a different divecenter and I do recommend the feeding if you are a shark enthusiast. Other than that, they are a perfect choice for all types of diving

    Best Dive Family in Mexico! I am a 17 year old diver and on my trip with Blue Life, I was getting my Nitrox and Side-Mount certifications. Before we even made it to Mexico, Blue Life was beyond helpful with my education and my online work. They worked easily and efficiently to help me get all my paperwork arranged, and when I showed up at the shop they gave me a warm welcome like I had already dove with them before. Their dive sites were beyond beautiful. My first dives were in the cenotes (my first freshwater dives!) and Hugo was amazingly patient and caring as I struggled with Side-Mount. When my goggles wouldn\'t clear underwater, he gave me his. And when I mentioned how much I wanted a shark dive, they arranged it so I could go on one the next day! Every member of the Blue Life staff is amazing, friendly, and welcoming. They are so trustworthy my mom let me dive alone for the first time, and had no worries the following dives after that (Which is saying something, as I\'m sure other parents know)! I am so excited for my next trip to Mexico purely because I can\'t wait to dive with Blue Life again, for hopefully many many years to come. If you\'re thinking about diving, choose Blue Life!

    Awesome Cenote Diving We were a group of about 20 divers and snorkle-ers and had a great time on our trip to Dos Ojos Cenote with Blue Life. They had come highly recommended to us so we had high expectations which they lived up to. We had a nice drive from their office in Playa del Carmen to the cenote. When we arrived there, our dive guides did a great dive briefing and made sure everyone was comfortable. Hugo, Sarah, and Rimas were all great dive guides, and Eliah was with snorklers who had a fun time as well. Food and drinks were delicious as well. Safety was stressed throughout the day and it was a beautiful dive. Highly, highly recommend Blue Life!

    The best scuba operator in Riviera Maya I\'ve been diving with Blue Life for the past 3 years and I keep booking with them every time I visit Riviera Maya. Hugo, the advanced cave diving instructor, is the main reason I keep diving with them exclusively, his knowledge and confidence diving cenotes translates in a great confidence doing what is cataloged as one of the most dangerous activities. The staff is great, they\'ve always been amazingly helpful and my dives have always been a pleasure. Honestly, there\'s nothing but good things I can say about the shop and I keep recommending it to anyone I know is traveling to Mexico (In fact, I\'m planning on organizing a trip to Playa with my diving group and doing the full cave certification myself). One thing I missed at the shop is a store with a variety of essentials to purchase (like fins and masks), but John (the owner) told me he is thinking about having some stock. There are probably over one hundred scuba operators in Playa del Carmen but Blue Life always delivers and over achieves.

    Perfect Combination of Professional and Personal - Thank you Blue Life I spent two days diving with Blue Life. The first day was to see the Cenotes, the second was to diving off of Cozumel. From the moment I reached out, Frank was super responsive and informative, it was extremely easy to interact, get information, and set everything up so once I arrived in Playa everything was already good to go. Nearing the dates of the dives, and after Andrea provided great information via email and followed up to make sure the experience was amazing! The shop is located right near the heart of Playa, and very easy to walk to, I walked from our hotel, The Grand Hyatt. Upon arrival to the shop, Leo and Jessica were extremely welcoming, and made me feel at home, offered coffee, and worked through getting all the gear ready to go. Valentina was our guide for Cenotes, we had a small (3 divers) group that was friendly and got along well. We drove to the Cenotes, the whole time Valentina giving us great information on Cenotes, the Playa area and a whole host of other things. She was easy to follow as a guide, provided great information on what we were doing, and overall really nice! The cenote dives themselves were beyond incredible, a must do bucket list item for every dives. We did the Pit and Dos Ojos, two different types of Cenotes, but both amazing in their own right. The next day we did Cozumel; we leave off of a shared dock really close to the shop, and were in a dive group of 4. It was about a 40 minute ride out to Cozumel. The diving was good, great visibility, beautiful coral and sea life. Overall, great experience, Blue Life made it super enjoyable from the first contact via email to a few days after the dives. If you have to prioritize your diving, Cenotes should be number 1!

    Awesome experience Last year, my wife and I visited Riviera Maya. While we were there, we really wanted go for diving. Since Blue Life had superb reviews, I contacted and Fernanda helped me with arrangement. While were there, I decided to get my open water certificate, and while doing so my wife took the refresher course. Hugo took care of my wife and I as he was superb instructor with patience. He was also able to give us a shuttle service to rather far hotel that we were staying. We ended up going two ocean dives and one cenote dive. We were planned for three ocean dives, but due to severe weather, after waiting out a day Blue Life suggested and took us to a Cenote diving next day. Whole experience was superb and will definitely recommend to everyone. I know I am leaving a super late review as I was too busy with life. Me and my wife is planning to visit Riviera Maya next month and remembered that I forgot to post a promised review. If I can I will definitely contact Blue Life again. Only happy memories.

    Best Cenote diving experience! Friendly & Professional Service We booked a cenotes scuba dive trip with Blue Life ahead of time, and from the very start we received very professional and friendly support from the Blue Life team. Marcela communicated with us via email to coordinate every detail of our trip, including transportation since we were staying in Tulum, so that we were ready to go when we arrived. There were four divers in our group, and we felt like we received very attentive and personalized service from Blue Life - we were able to dive the cenotes as our own group with Hugo, our cavern dive master. We had a fantastic time diving with him! He is a wonderful, professional, and very experienced friendly guide. He made us feel comfortable 100% of the time, especially important diving in the cenotes\' cavern zone since we had zero prior experience doing so. In addition, their SCUBA equipment was in tip top shape - it was very evident that they care for and maintain all of their gear very well. We are very happy with our choice to dive with Blue Life, as they provided simply excellent service. We will definitely be diving with Blue Life again the next time we return to the Riviera Maya for another round of cenotes diving. Thank you for your professionalism and outstanding service!!!

    Perfect diving experience I spent a lot of time going back&forth in choosing a dive outfit for my cenote dives. Given the potentially-dangerous nature of cavern-diving I wanted to make sure that I was totally comfortable both in the equipment and the guide. BlueLife did not disappoint. From the start the regular email interaction with Fernanda was quick & responsive. As someone who can\'t physically walk with a BCD and tank on they made sure to accommodate my physical needs for the cenote diving, as well as my vegan dietary requirements for the lunch & snacks they provide. I did three dives on my outing : The Pit and Cenote Dos Ojos (Bat- and Barbie- line). Our dive guide, Hugo, was gregarious, calming, present and and at no times did we feel like there was any safety concern. In short, I would dive with them again if I am ever in the area in the future!

Was originally planning on diving for two days during my week in mexico, but I ended up diving for 3 days, 6 dives in total which ends up being the \"taste of the mayan riviera\" package. If you\'ve never dove in the area I would definitely recommend it although they have packages to fit whatever your taste. I did 2 dives in cozumel, 2 in playa (including a bull shark dive!!!)

This was the only Dive Shop that would accommodate me and furthermore they also recommended I dive at \"the pit\". It was an amazing choice as the pit is a very unique diving experience that should not be missed if you are in playa. They arranged a private guide who was a very senior dive master to take me by himself to both locations. I felt very comfortable and 100% safe diving in both of these areas which could, with less experienced divers or guides be dangerous. I will definitely dive with them again if I am back in the playa area.

    Great dive shop We went diving with blue life recently and we had a great time. I am a diving instructor myself so I\'m always looking for a friendly dive shop where diving is a passion and not a business ! This is what we found in blue life diving !! We went a first day to cozumel with Fernanda and everything was well organized with water, fruits provided and even someone to carry our bags on the way back as it was hot ! The second day we went to the pit and dos ojos (cenote) with Sarah and she shared her passion and knowledge with us in a very nice way. Everything went well and was really well organised. The dives were awesome and we will come back with them anytime. To tell you I would even work for them if they had a job for me in the future !! You can go and enjoy Mexican diving with blue life !! Trust us !! Cedric & elena

    Fantastic day Had a fantastic day diving the Pit and Dos Ojos with Rimas - couldn\'t fault it. Loved the dives. Sarah and Fernanda were very helpful and efficient answering any queries I had before booking and with the whole booking process. Had time permitted would have loved to do another day\'s diving with them. Hope to make it back another time! Highly recommend them.

    AOW I\'m a little late with this but better late than never! I previously dove with blue life in April and had an incredible experience. So I went back to get my AOW in July and it was even better. I dove with Rimas the entire time. 11 dives in 3 days. That\'s how I do it. Blue life is always game. The first days I did all of my aow courses and a few fun dives. All 1 on 1. This isn\'t the norm with other dive shops. My third day there was one other diver with us in the cenotes but we were at the same skill level so it was all good. Ponderosa might be my fave now, or maybe the pit... idk all the cenotes are so unique and great in their own way. Rimas was great with my aow classes. I had some difficulty at first with a couple but he was able to coach me through them and by the end I was able to do perform the skills on my own. I also highly recommend the wreck dive in cozumel if conditions and time permit. On my last day blue life let me dive on nitrox for free because I had gone on 8 dives in the past 2 days. I can\'t tell if it made a difference but it was very much appreciated. Oh and Fernanda was great scheduling everything for me even though I booked my trip 3 days before heading down there and she was on holiday. But she was able to do everything remotely and blue life once again came through. Thanks and I\'ll see you guys for my rescue diver course!

    Incredible diving and dive instructors! Great for beginner and advanced divers! My best friend and I spent two days diving with Hugo and Fernanda in August 2016. On the recommendation of Fernanda, I decided to work towards my PADI advanced open water certificate since another girl in our group was doing the same. Fernanda cleverly figured out away for me to complete all five skills training dives over the course of my vacation, which was great! The first day we did two dives in Akumal. We saw tons of turtles and a beautiful reef. That night we did a night dive in Playa - my first one! I highly recommend the night dive- the sea really comes alive at night and the stars are beautiful when you surface! The second day we did 3 cenote dives. Being a new diver (I\'d only done 9 dives at that point including the dives from the day before), I didn\'t quite know what to expect...turns out its pretty dark in the cenotes (you definitely need a flash lights to see most of the time) and there is a spot about 30 feet down where its hard to see because of the halocline (mixing of fresh and salt water). Long story short, I got a bit panicked when we reached the halocline and I couldn\'t see, so I came up to the surface scared and convinced I should sit the dive out. Our dive instructor that day, Hugo, calmed me down and was extremely patient and kind. Hugo agreed to do the dive with me next to him so I felt more comfortable. He ended up holding my hand and guiding me for most of the dive, and I\'m so glad he did, because it really calmed me down and allowed me to relax and enjoy the dive, which was spectacularly beautiful and unique! I was much better on the second and third cenote dives but I still needed some hand holding (literally). If it wasn\'t for his kindness and patience, I would\'ve missed out on cenote diving entirely because of my fears and new diver nerves, which would have been a shame since the cenotes are so unique and interesting to dive. I cannot recommend Blue Life highly enough and look forward to returning to Playa and diving with them again soon! Note to the ladies- the cenotes are realllly cold. I dove with a 5mm suit and was cold, so I used Blue Life\'s vest and hood as well, which kept me toasty and comfortable.

    Cenote Diving A friend and I wanted to dive cenotes. I am a professional diver and have been in the industry for a while, so I was looking for a good service. Blue Life provided that, and then some. Hugo and Valentina took care of us like royalty. On time pick up, great attitude, snacks, all gear in great shape, and they definitely knew what they were doing. Having experienced many dive companies, including those I worked for, this is one to recommend. If you are going to Playa del Carmen/Tulum and want to have a great time diving cenotes, give these guys a call.

    Great small diving store I used this store in a couple of cenote dives earlier this year, and also got certified in Nitrox with them. My experience was very good. I had to rent material since I didn\'t bring any with me and it was good of quality and condition, including dive computers, etc. I will use them again in my next visit to the area. Recommended.

    Absolutely Wonderful.. Now we know why Blue Life get so many 5 star rating. We did six days of diving reef, cenotes and sidemount training. Fernada even guided us on our 2 tank boat dive and spotted a \"Pea\" very young, tiny Trunk Fish. She was so happy and the mood was set for the rest of our time. We were totally pleased with all our guides and sidemount instruction. Thank you all again Fernada, Sara, Rimas and especially, patient instructor Suzy. We would highly recommend \"Blue Life\" for safe diving and great instruction.

    Great Diving! I had two great days of diving with Blue Life Diving last week. I originally was scheduled to go with another highly rated dive company here on TripAdvisor, but after they no called and no showed on me, I quickly contacted Blue Life diving to see if they could accommodate me for a couple of dives later in the week. They were always so responsive and a very professional staff that you can tell really enjoy what they do. I dove once with Fernanda and another day with Sarah. Both were great. However, the second day of diving in the cenotes, especially The Pit, was especially memorable. Definitely one of the top dives I have ever done. Blue Life Diving definitely made my trip to Playa Del Carmen memorable and I was so happy that they were so responsive and able to take me after the negative experience with another company.

    amazing cenote dives!!! I\'ve been to a couple of cenote dives with Sarah from the Blue Life Diving. I must say she\'s a great guide as well as a great person. She\'s fun, patient and she knows what she\'s doing. I never had a second though about diving in the cenote no matter how deep or dark it got. I always felt at ease with Sarah as my guide - Thank you again Sarah - you are amazing! Thank you also to all the other staff members who always responded within a few hours or even less to my emails. I highly recommend this diving shop for cenote or any kind of dive. Here are some great people working!

    Safe and Fun Diving We did six cenote dives in two days with Hugo, and it was a fantastic experience. I would definitely recommend Blue Life Diving. You get a personalized experience, and the staff are great to work with. Fernanda is great to communicate with in advance of your trip and help with anything you need. She is quite friendly. Hugo picked us up at our hotel and took us to the cenotes. At each site, he went over the map of the cenote and our planned dive. He gave us backup lights to keep in our BCD\'s since we just had one each. Each dive and each cenote was fun and different. If you are advanced certified, on of my favorites was El Pit. After our dive at El Pit, Hugo asked if we wanted to look at the Pet Cemetery cenote. Because it is lit by artificial light, you need to be cave certified, but he took us inside to see the cavern, and it is really beautiful. Hugo didn\'t need to take us to Pet Cemetery and other shops might now, but it was nice he went out of his way to show us since we were in the area. Lunch was included in our trip. Lunch is probably sandwiches they pick up along the way because it\'s good to take with you, but we love tacos So Hugo took us to taco places that had amazing food. Because our Spanish is minimal, Hugo would tell us what was in each dish. He would order for us, and it was perfect quick eats between dives. Some of the best tacos we had on the trip. On the second day, there was a couple that was having a hard time communicating at the restaurant. Hugo went to the counter and helped communicate with the random couple to help them get tacos as well. Hugo\'s English is fantastic if you aren\'t great at Spanish like me. He has really interesting stories about his experience diving and living in the Yucatan. If you dive with him, I encourage you to ask him about his cave diving experience. He adheres to cavern/cave restrictions completely, and this ensures that you are safe on every dive. I prefer to break the rules most of the time, but cavern/cave restrictions are in place because people have been seriously injured. This is a really good shop that cares about your experience. I recommend asking for Hugo.

    Fantastic Diving. Wonderful Staff. This shop is situated on the \"mellow\" edge of town, away from the fray of Playa del Carmen\'s main strip, 10th Avenue. The relaxed vibe that pervades the shop takes the frenetic human temperature down to more acceptable levels, a welcome respite from the din and souvenir palaces just a few blocks away. For divers looking for a more personalized approach, the dedicated crew that run this delightful outfit will customize your diving trips and strive to make everything work. If cenote diving is your thing, or if you\'d like to add such an experience to a log book (as I did), the crew here provide expert guidance--they are trained cave divers. Our family, with varying degrees of skills, took the plunge with Hugo and Remus, diving Cozumel and the reef off Playa. Hugo conducted open-water certification dives for our 10-year-old, and Fernanda took care of our questions and bookings (and recommended local eateries as well). Rental prices are reasonable and the equipment is in good shape. Highly recommended!

    Cave Diving in the Cenotes of Riveria Maya I just returned from a week of diving with the staff at Blue Life Diving. Day one, Vale and I took the ferry to dive in Cozumel. I love diving in Cozumel. The remaining 6 days I went cave diving with Hugo as my guide. We visited a different cave system each day; it was fantastic. Both of the guides were personable, safety conscious and very knowledgable about the area and its dive sites. Last year, I took a two week course in side mount, cavern and cave diving at Blue Life. Interested in exploring a new chapter in diving? If so, investigate the options at Blue Life. You can feel comfortable diving with the personnel there; you will be in good hands. Charles.

    Three awesome days of diving We scheduled our dive trip with Blue Life a few weeks before arriving in Playa so that my son could finish his open water certification. For our first day of diving we met up at the shop around 8am and met the crew. I had primarily dealt with Fernanda while booking, she was awesome and answered all my questions. Then we met Rimas, he was the instructor that we worked with on all of our dives. He completed my sons open water requirements and guided us around the reefs. I cannot say how awesome and patient he was with my son, though he says that patience was not needed. On the fist day, we dove at Playa, walked with our gear from the shop and met the boat at the beach a block away. On day 2 we upgraded the dive to go to Akumal to see if we could find some sea turtles. We did see a few on our dives. We lucked out and had 2 perfectly calm days in a row! A couple of days later I decided we wanted to try a Cenote and they were able to get us in. Again Rimas was fantastic and did a great job of picking the spots and letting us enjoy our dives. My son and I had a great time as well. I will certainly look them up again next time I am looking to dive in the Playa del Carmen area.

    Blue Life is the best!!! This is the best dive shop I have ever been to. The staff is amazing. From the initial booking with Fernanda to the diving with Hugo, Sarah, and Frank, everything is super organized and professional. This was my 3rd time cave diving with Blue Life and I would not go anywhere else. As a PADI instructor, I have been to numerous shops across the Caribbean and Mexico and Blue Life is the best I have been to. I can\'t wait to go back.

    Super 3 days Just returned from 3 days diving with my 14 year old son and the crew at Blue Life. They did an outstanding job, and the 3 days were varied (Playa, Cozumel and Cenotes) and terrific fun. All the guides were super attentive and focused on our enjoyment, and were enthusiastic about both the diving and each of the sites. I want to make special mention of Hugo and Sarah who were were both excellent instructors and a lot of fun to be with and Fernanda who runs the office with such a great attitude. Thanks guys!

    bucket list cenote diving After a week of drift diving Cozumel, added a few days in Cancun with plans to do a couple of cenote dives. Well, expectations were exceeded, our DM, Simon, was our DM, very safety concious & experienced. An \"other worldly\" experience, glad we had a serious DM, would not have wanted to do 1st cenote diving with a company or DM with less experience, if open water diving can kill you, cenote diving can do it 4x as easy. Would definately go back. My 130 dives are not big time, but have enough to know a quality, customer service driven dive company when I experience 1. Fernanda, the shop & dive coordinator, was very prompt @ answering all my pre-trip questions, like she wanted us to join them, what a concdept.

    Awesome experience! I began my adventure with the people at Blue Life Diving by completing my Open water certification off the shores of Playa del Carmen. As a novice diver although excited about my next step I was very nervous. That didn\'t last long as Sarah, my instructor made me feel completely at ease and under her direction my dives went so smoothly. Better than I could have expected. I successfully completed my certification and was anxious to scuba in the Cenotes, which was amazing!. Thanks to Hugo for an awesome experience. I did 6 dives over 3 days and enjoyed it all. There was a lot of diversity in the locations and I especially enjoyed the fish arch in Playa. Thanks to the whole gang Sarah, Roxy, Fernando and Hugo. Geoff Anthony Dorchester Ont

    Spectacular Service, Excellent Diving I had the pleasure of diving with the great people at Blue Life and I couldn\'t be happier. While there\'s an abundance of dive operators in Playa I can\'t imagine that many can match the level of personalized care and attention that I experienced with Blue Life. The entire staff seemed fully engaged and mainly interested in my safety and ensuring the dives were tailored to my skill level and my interests. I did a six dive package. Each was unique and fun but the cenotes are by far the most unusual environment I\'ve been in to date. A surreal and incredible experience. But regardless of the location, the Blue Life team made sure that my needs were met. One of my dives even included lunch, a nice touch. At the end of the day, they rinsed and stored my gear so it was ready for the next day of diving. I am 100% satisfied with the service I received and I can recommend them to anyone looking for personalized service and diving with professionals who are interested in ensuring you have a good experience.

    Diving was spectacular I did my open-dive sessions for certification with Sarah at Blue Life and the experience was excellent. Sarah is a true professional who puts the client\'s interest/skills first. We did two dives in Playa, two off of Cozumel and two in nearby cenotes, and each was a great experience. Blue Life made it so easy by providing all the equipment, snacks and great sandwiches. I also enjoyed spending time with the others at Blue Life (Fernanda, Rimas, Frank, etc.) who were very familiar with the area and recommended good places to go. It was great fun to be with such nice people.

    Amazing diving and snorkeling!!! We are 60-somethings who have just returned from a 2 1/2 week exploration of the Yucatan. We are so happy that Blue Life was a part of that adventure! The staff is professional, personable, smart, safety conscious, and fun! Sarah, Rimas, Fernanda, Simon, Hugo, and Frank are incredibly good at what they do. We felt well cared for every step of the way. My husband completed his open dive portion of his SCUBA certification with Sarah, who is a great teacher. He had a chance to dive off the coast of Playa del Carmen, Cozumel, and also did two cenote dives. I snorkeled with Rimas, first at Dos Ojos (who knew I could be encouraged to enter a bat cave??), then at Casa Cenote and then at Grand Cenote. All three were different and amazing in their own ways. Swimming in an aquarium is delightful, and Grand Cenote has turtles!! We both always felt safe and well instructed. All gear was provided (wet suits are good in cenotes). We had our own prescription masks, but Blue Life provided eveything else ... even towels. All we needed was a change of clothes, some water shoes, and an underwater camera. They even brought along yummy sandwiches and fruit as well as water. After our snorkel at Dos Ojos we had a delicious lunch at Juanita\'s, where we enjoyed some yummy tacos and a sweet potato/ honey amuse bouche. I can\'t say enough about our time with the Blue Lifers ... if you are planning to dive or snorkel in the Yucatan, don\'t look anywhere else!

    Amazing diving experience with Blue Life Diving Let me start by saying that Blue Life Diving far exceeded my expectations! My wife and I were staying the Playa del Carmen area for a week vacation and we wanted to do some diving (we\'re both certified divers). We were hoping to dive both on the Mayan side and over at Cozumel. Blue Life had a package that accommodated us being able to do both - perfect! We booked the Ocean Blue package. Fernanda worked her magic making all the arrangements including arranging our transportation for us (it was cheaper through Blue Life than through our hotel). Fernanda did an absolutely superb job keeping us informed where we were going and on which day. She even accommodated my request to sneak in a couple of cenotes dives (which were amazing) above the standard diving package. Our dive masters (we had 3 different dive masters) were absolutely fantastic. Fernanda\'s logistics and customer service was amazing. Our overall experience diving with Blue Life couldn\'t have been better. Personally, I would not hesitant to recommend them to anyone (and in fact, I have recommended them to friends already). Next time I\'m vacationing in the Mayan area, I WILL be diving with Blue Life again! Thanks again Blue Life! I can\'t wait for the next time.

    Great dive shop, super friendly staff! My husband and I went to Playa del Carmen for New Year holidays, and our goal was to dive as much as possible. We picked Blue Life because of its good review here on TripAdvisor and we weren\'t disappointed! The staff and instructors were super friendly,and did everything they could to arrange the dives as we wished. We dove two days in Cozumel, one in Playa del Carmen, including the bull shark dive, and Fernanda even arranged three dives at the Cenotes on January 1st, when most dive shops are closed.

This time for a movie production \"Cave\" where Frank, Sarah and Fernanda worked as local producers doing all of our logistics in terms of diving, cenotes license, accomodation and getting around. We received great help from Simon and Hugo as safety divers for our actors and they provided all their effort to help out on the shoot. Frank is very helpful and supervising as always, they made us feel safe and taken care of, on a personal level too. I highly recommend their level of expertise and the #1 place to go for cenote, cavern and cave diving on Yucatan.

    Great Dive Shop that caters to its customers After a less than pleasant experience with another dive shop, my girlfriend and I wandered into this one. Immediately they asked us what we wanted to see and created an itinerary for just that. We signed up to do a dive at Akumal in hopes of seeing some turtles, and then ending the day in a Cenote. The next morning we had 3 additional divers join us. We did our first dive, and while we did not see any turtles, our guide Hugo was awesome. We went to the cenote to finish while the other divers did another turtle dive. They say turtles, but the cenote dive was the coolest dive I have done to date. Utterly breathtaking. Hugo was again very professional and knowledgable.

    Cenote diving dream come true 2 thumbs up to Blue Life for organizing three days of cenote diving for my husband and I. Fernanda was quick at responding to email and most communication was done online. We booked 6 months in advance as we knew we were coming at high season. We did the Nitrox course online and got certified at Blue Life. We also got hotel pickups arranged which were always on time and direct to the cenotes. Wonderful service! Sarah and Hugo are excellent and knowledgeable dive masters. I had a lot of trouble with equalization and they were very patient with me. My husband and I are vegetarians and we were taken to a delicious taco stand each day for lunch. Authentic and delicious! We dove Dos Ojos, Calavera, Car Wash, The Pit and Taj Ma Ha. Notes for travelers: the bathrooms are Eco toilets with no toilet paper in most cases. The roads are very bumpy and through a jungle. Bring Gravol for weak tummies!

    Hugo and Sarah were top-notch instructors and the whole team was awesome! My boyfriend and I walked over to Blue Life based on the overwhelming number of rave reviews online. We weren\'t disappointed. Fernanda and Sarah were sitting there, chilling after a dive (Sarah\'s hair was still drying), and they were friendly, personable, knowledgeable, and helped us problem-solve to find the best combination of dives for Jeff, who was more experienced, to dive with me, who was still getting my open-water certification. We arranged for 4 dives in two days for my certification, and Jeff did an additional cenote dive with Sarah on the 4th day. Hugo was our guy the first day, and he\'s patient, kind, very knowledgable, and put me at total ease with his wanrth, humor, and experience. I learned a ton from him the first day. We dove off of Playa del Carmen. Day two Sarah was with us. She was amazing- fun to be around, experienced, and very patient with me, who was a little overwhelmed by the sheer amazingness of our Cozumel dive. The first one I made mistakes (lost my weight belt, accidentally inflated vest when trying to deflate, panicked a bit in moments for some reason) and she was with me and corrected me with great patience and skill the first dive, which was eye-poppingly beautiful (Santa Ana Wall), and we were able to have a great time with no blips the second dive. Jeff had an incredible experience with Sarah on day three, and this was his first cenote dive. I would strongly recommend Blue Life to anyone diving in the Playa del Carmen area.

    Tailored dive package with great service! Before our trip we corresponded with Courtney and Sarah, both of which were very helpful in creating a dive package that my boyfriend and I wished to do. The diving they recommended in Cozumel was great diving. Our dive guide, Hugo, showed us a great time and ensured our safety. The second day of diving in the cenotes with Hugo was an unbelievable experience for us. We did not have previous experience cavern diving, so Hugo gave us extensive safety briefings and lead us through 3 caverns. I highly recommend diving the cenotes, especially with Blue Life. Our dive group only consisted of myself and my boyfriend, so you can\'t ask for a better dive experience.

It was my first dives after certification earlier this year so I was still a bit nervous about my skills, but the staff made me feel really comfortable and took good care of me.

    Excellent diving - local ocean, Cozumel and cenotes We had five days of wonderful diving with Blue Life - two days on the local Playa sites, two days on Cozumel via the ferry and a day at cenotes. We booked with Frank online and coordinated via both email and telephone. Frank has local and US phone numbers so he makes communications really easy - and he\'s almost instantaneous in responding to questions. It was kind of funny that we never actually met Frank in person during our visit, because he had gone to Mexico City to get a new vehicle for the business. However, he had everything so well organized that we didn\'t miss a beat. Josiah was our DM on the four ocean dive days. We met on our first day, set up our gear and didn\'t need to mess with it until our last dive. He took car of washing everything and hanging gear to dry. Throughout the dives, Josiah allowed us to dive at our own pace and spend as much time as we wanted checking out things we found and taking photos. He pointed out stuff he found, but he totally let us dive our own profiles and to our capabilities. We didn\'t surface until we needed to. It was great diving with Josiah. Rafael (aka Frenchie) took us diving at The Pit and Tajma Ha. We had two great dives and we loved experiencing Rafael\'s love of cenote and cave diving. We\'ve been diving with several other shops in the Playa area and Blue Life is the best we\'ve seen. We highly recommend them.

    First Cenotes\' Dive! A recent short trip to Mexico, gave us an opportunity for one day of cenotes diving. A magical landscape and experience made even better by the generosity and hospitality we were given by Blue Life. From the easy planning process via email with Frank all the way to our, out-of-the-way drop off to our hotel by Frenchie, our entire experience (my first of cavern diving) was amazing! Our guide Frenchie was down to earth and kept us comfortable and informed every step of the way. His love for diving was inspiring to say the least. Sad to have had only enough time for one day of diving, but the excursion left me wanting for more, and any trip in the future to the Playa del Carmen area, Blue Life will be hearing from me! An experience I will never forget, thank you again!

    Phenomenal service. This the second time I\'ve had the opportunity to dive with Blue Life, the experience was just as exciting as the first. Frank was able to accomadate me and my misses with a wonderful day of cenotes diving. As before he fine tuned the dive itinerary specifically to our wants and desires. He even provided out of the way transportation to and from our hotel. And what else can I say Frenchie, Frenchie, Frenchie, an absolute gentleman and professional, it was pleasure having him as our guide. I can\'t wait for my next adventure with Blue Life.

    Great diving with Hugo I am a beginner diver and do not know much about diving in Mexico but my three days with Blue Life on Taste Riviera Maya package were a total success. I dived with Hugo all three times and loved every minute under the water. Hugo was helpful but not stressful ibstructor. He really took us llaces where you can see sealife and enjoy the underwater world. The cenotes (The Pit and Dos Ojos) are a MUST SEE.

    Personal service Having a private dive master to show me about the cenotes of the Playa to Tulum area - well it doesn\'t come any better than that. My diving experience has been ocean and large Midwestern US lakes and while in Playa de Carmen I wanted a taste of the cenote and cave diving I\'d read about available there. My first contact was with Sara thru the Blue Life web site and she was very attentive and prompt with her information and encouragement, always availble by email and phone, William, my dive master, picked me up at my hotel and escorted me thru the day, just what I wanted but you can never expect. He was very knowledgeable and experienced and taught me a great deal about the mechanics of true cave diving along with my one day of cenote diving. As soon as time allows me a week to go back, I will be returning for the full cave training. The cenotes and caves are incredible and mysterious geological wonders to rival anything the ocean offers. Thanks to Blue Life for an amazing day.

    Knowledgeable, safe divemasters Had a wonderful experience with Blue Life from booking thru to diving! Karla was helpful in helping us choose dive sites when I reached out months in advance, and Frank was also great with follow up closer to our trip/dive dates. Dove two days: one day ocean diving and one day cavern diving. Had good experiences both days, but if you only have time to do one day of diving, I would say choose the cenotes! We dove the Pit and Dos Ojos. The information on BL\'s website is a good reflection of the dive site(s) as you decide which site to dive. Blue Life\'s top-notch DMs hands-down drives my recommendation of Blue Life. Williem, our cenotes DM, briefed us clearly and succinctly about the dive sites and ran us through safe cavern diving protocol in detail (we\'re not cave certified and had no cavern experience prior to this). Williem was also just genuinely friendly and interesting (for us tourists) to talk to about the cenotes, Playa, Mexico, general history of the area, etc. On our ocean dive, Guillermo clearly paid attention to the group and kept us 8 together, whilst giving photographers time for photos. Other points to highlight: * Water temperature: Ocean dive = 28C; Caverns = 25C. Coming from Asia, I found the cavern water a bit chilly, particularly towards the end of the dive, even with the 3mm suit provided. I\'m glad I brought my own cap. I would have been even happier with an additional vest. * Ocean dive: Dive boat had two pick up points -- where we initially boarded, and then onward to a hotel where other divers hopped on. The process was efficient, but know some people like to get straight to diving! * Gear: Dive gear all well maintained. O2 bottles on board the dive boat. * Group size: 8 people on our ocean dive, only 2 of us on our cavern dive. Blue Life continued with the cavern dive even with only the two of us (vs. disappointing tales of other shops cancelling dives if there are not enough people). * Walks to the cavern: You gear up at the set-up tables, which are ~20-30m away (with stairs!) from the entry point to the caverns (Dos Ojos, the Pit). Be prepared to walk with a tank on your back and gear in hand to the platforms, or ask for help if you need it!

    Felt like Indiana Jones My wife and I did our advanced water certification as well as Cenote diving with Blue Life. It was an unforgettable experience and Peter our instructor made it very special. Cenote diving was amazing, really felt like we were in an Indiana Jones movies, lol. Frank was very reliable, flexible, easy to work with and gave me the best prices possible. Couldn\'t have asked for a better diving experience and Blue Life made it happen.

    Awesome Diving Not realizing our resort had a dive shop, we arranged to dive with Blue Life on our recent trip to Playa Del Carmen, and we are SO glad we did! We originally booked a 5-dive package; three cenote dives and two dives in Cozumel. When the dive days came, Willian picked us up at our resort right on time (apologizing for being 3 minutes late because of some issues with our hotel staff), we picked up our equipment, two other divers, and our tanks, and we were on our way. We had such a great first day diving with Willian in the cenotes (and getting our nitrox certs) that we ended up adding on another dive for the second day, so we did 2 Cozumel dives and another cenote, Cenote Zapote. That last cenote dive was not cheap, but it was 100% worth it, so if you get the chance, take it. It\'s a once in a lifetime kind of dive, and even the guys we dove with who had much, much more experience than we did said the same. Willian took awesome care of us, made sure we were comfortable and happy at every step, and just really went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time diving and pushing our skill level just a little further than we had before, with great success. We enjoyed our Cozumel dives with Pancho as well, but the group was much larger and we didn\'t get as much of a chance to hang out with him, whereas we were driving around with Willian for 2 days. If you\'re in the area and looking to dive, dive with Blue Life. From setting everything up over email to the dives themselves to extra stuff we didn\'t anticipate doing, every part of it was awesome from start to finish. This is the kind of dive shop that spoils you for diving through less organized, less friendly resort shops.

    Best diving in Playa! We did our Advanced Scuba Diving course with Bluelife and it was an incredible experience. We had the chance to dive with Karla, Frank and Pete, and all of the dives went very well. We ended up doing two extra dives at some Cenotes - definitely recommend it! Thanks again to the Bluelife team for a wonderful diving trip.

    Excellent service, great experience This is a top notch dive shop. Frank is on top of communication, and he\'s the guy at the helm of the shop. Frank responded to my inquiry to his website quickly and personally. The other two dive shops did not respond at all to my e-mails, while Frank called me, took time to answer my questions, and worked with my schedule. When some timing issues came up for me, Frank was gracious to work around them and schedule me at a time that worked for me. And due to an illness, I had to cancel two dives, which Frank reached out personally to make sure we were OK, to offer help, and promptly took care of the deposit that I had placed. Absolutely top notch service. Frank sets the bar VERY high, I will absolutely be diving here again next time I come back.

    Custom diving at its best I can tell you that Blue Life Diving\'s top spot on Trip Advisor has been well earned and deserved. My wife and I called a few dive operators for quotes and options on arrival in Playa. It was Blue Life Diving who\'s custom dive plan and attention to their customers needs won me over. Karla and Frank\'s attention to their customers is second to none. My wife got burnt on the day we went to Cozumel so wasn\'t feeling up to diving again in Cozumel the next day. Frank was so understanding and totally went out of his way to make last minute changes so we could dive two more cenotes vs. another long sunny trip on the Cozumel boat. Blue Life truly takes care of their customers and goes the extra mile to ensure that they are having a great time. In total we did ten dives with Blue Life. Also, their equipment is all top notch and well taken care of. Special thanks to William who helped me overcome my fear of cenote diving. (it was so good we dove four of them!) He practices super safe diving and is a great guide and an amazing person. We\'ll definitely we using Blue Life for all future diving trips on the Mayan Coast. They are the best!

    Unbelievably Good! I had been recommended Blue Life Diving by a friend, and they certainly far exceeded my expectations. Karla and Frank turned around a last minute dive request for me, and I was able to dive The Pit and Cenotes Dos Ojos today with Pete. Pete is an excellent dive instructor, safety oriented (kinda important in a cavern dive) with a huge wealth of knowledge about not just the dive sites but the surrounding area as well. I would HIGHLY recommend Karla, Frank and Pete for ALL your diving needs in the Yucatan Peninsula. In fact, I am hoping I get to dive with them again before I leave!

    Great company to dive with Blue Life was one of a few companies we tried while in Playa Del Carmen, and I wish we had tried them first. In a region heavy on profiteering, Blue Life\'s focus on Service and professionalism was refreshing and very appreciated. If there is any disparity in price between them and other companies (and there wasn\'t that I noticed), they are worth every cent

    Outstanding experience with awesome personal attention. I was in Playa Del Carmen July of 2014 and Blue Life took great care of me. Great communications with Karla and lots of personal attention from Frank and especially Peter who was our guide for the Cenotes. No wonder why these folks have such a high rating, they certainly deserve it! If you go to Playa and don\'t dive The Pit you\'re missing out on a dive of a lifetime. The obvious cave and cavern expertise of Blue Life is a great comfort for a first time Cenote dive. Thanks!!!

    Great Experience in the Cenotes I found Karla on a SCUBA diving forum and while asking fellow divers about diving in Playa del Carmen. Even though it was more than 3 months away, Karla was very helpful and put together a 2 day package for my daughter and I that included 2 tanks in the ocean at Moc Che and 2 tanks in Dos Ojos and The Pit cenotes the next day. When the time came, Frank picked us up the first day and we dove with Leo. Having dove the Great Barrier Reef, Hawaii and Cozumel, I wasn\'t expecting a lot on the Playa del Carmen side but Leo showed us a good time at Moc Che Deep and Shallow where we say eels, turtles, flounder and the ever invasive lionfish. We also saw something I\'d not seen before, an arrow head crab. The cenotes dives were our first times in the fresh water caverns so we were excited to try it. Having dove with Leo the previous day, he picked us up and drove us and a very nice young Australian couple to Dos Ojos and The Pit. Unlike the ocean diving, waiting until later in the day to dive a cenote is not a problem. It can actually be beneficial as the sun is more directly overhead and much more light is able to beam down on the water for those oh so dramatic pictures. We were all issued flashlights for the cenote dives and Leo set our gear up. Once in the water, wd did both the Bat Cave and Barbie lines. Next, we did The Pit and experienced our first halocline. Blue Life isn\'t the cheapest but they had great gear, great service and we weren\'t in with a bunch of novices that burn through an 80 in 20 minutes. Most of their regs had dive computers and our wet suits were so new we had to wear extra weights. I never felt we did anything dangerous or went beyond our limits. I would recommend them without hesitation.

    My experience of Blue Life Diving I went diving in June but booked my cenotes diving with Frank at Blue Life back in November. Even though we were months away, Frank was patient, helpful and knowledgeable. He answered all my questions without once saying \"crikey - it\'s over half a year away!\". Cenotes diving isn\'t cheap, but I really would recommend it. On the first day I did two \'basic\' dives which were a great introduction, and on the second day I paid a little more to do \'dos ojos\' and \'the pit\' - the latter of which was my absolute favourite. Pete the diving instuctor knew his stuff, and put me at ease. He was also very passionate about cavern diving which was good to hear! Thanks Frank and Pete, I\'m really glad I dived with you :-)

    DIVE WITH THEM! On June 27, 2014, and June 28, 2014, I did three and four dives respectively with Blue Life divers. My guide was Frank Gutierrez, one of the owners of Blue Life, and we dove The Pit, Taj Maha, Dreamgate, and Dos Ojos. From the beginning, Blue Life\'s service was excellent: Karla Perusquia, who runs Blue Life with Frank, was immediately responsive to my emails and super-helpful and charming. Whatever I asked, Karla answered. Frank is a fun, charming guide who is not only hard-working and helpful, but who also is just a blast to hang out with. This should show what I mean: I came down to Playa to dive the Cenotes and hit my 100th dive. I miscounted and thought I needed six dives to get there. Three dives per day. After the first day, I realized I\'d miscounted. I told Frank and Karla the next morning and Frank found a way to get me four dives on day two...and my hundredth dive. Thank you, Karla and Frank, for an awesome two days of diving. I\'d book you guys again in a heartbeat.

    Mind Expanding Cenotes - Outstanding Operation in every possible way I\'ll start with communication and service. Outstanding all the way. Karla is absolutely first rate with this always on the ball with a quick and helpful reply. When you\'re trying to sort things out on a holiday at short notice this is massively important. I might also add that nothing was too much trouble. In our case this included finding us accommodation at a hefty discount, lending us laptops & iPads to complete PADI training, re-scheduling training at short notice and so on. On the diving side Frank & Pete are both superb. Both vastly qualified and experienced for the PADI Open Water and the small amount of Cavern Diving I did. On their off time these guys go exploring and charting caves that have literally never been dived before so truly live and breathe it and it really showed when you were around them. The caves/caverns/cenotes/xenotes themselves were a huge highlight for me. Literally mind expanding. Really didn\'t know what to expect but found them to be totally jaw dropping (The Pit, Dream Gate to name two). I might add that the last dive I did before diving here was Darwin\'s Arches out in Galapagos. Finally Karla and Frank are a really lovely friendly couple and make a great team. There are some great dive operations around there but it is very clear to me why these guys are number 1.

    Amazing dives, great personalized Service! I am an expireced diver who had always wanted to do a cenote dive. I was referred to Blue Life by a dive shop I used to dive with, I was very happy I contacted them for the dives. My guide Pete came to my Hotel in Tulum to pick me up. From the beginning I was impressed by his professionalism, and knowledge. I had around 250 dives, but zero in a Cenote, I was a little nervous about the dive. Pete really helped by giving me a thurough dive briefing, and helping with my equipment. Once in the water I had an amazing dive experience, it was like nothing I had seen before. I\'d like to give a big thanks to Pete for the great dives, and to Frank and Karla for getting it all set up. The next time I am diving in the Yucatan it will be with Blue Life!

    Experience of a Lifetime! If you are already a diver and haven\'t experienced the Playa/Cozumel/Tulum area of Mexico, you need to do it soon. If you are not certified, but have been thinking about it, what are you waiting for!? We recently returned from our trip, and can\'t wait to get back to one of the best diving areas in the world!!! Blue Life made our experience even more memorable by providing first class service and professionalism. Both Frank and Karla are English speaking, as well as our DM Pete, which made arrangements that much easier. Pete was exceptional in his services as well. He was a wealth of information, and showed much skill and concern for everyone\'s happiness and safety. Both me and my wife highly recommend Blue Life if you are looking to add to your diving bucket list, or to get the proper training in a world class environment.

    The best operator in the area! We dived with Blue Life back in December and they were absolutely amazing! We did lots of research before coming to Mexico as there are thousands of dive operators available in the area and from other reviews we decided to do our Cenote dives with Blue Life. They are honestly the best operator in the area (we tried two other companies).

    Cenote diving - a great experience! A friend recommended Frank at Blue Life when I mentioned I wanted to dive a cenote for my first time on my upcoming trip to Akumal. He sent Frank an email and with my information and Frank got in contact right away. He was helpful and informative and organised for Pete to take my friend and I the following day. Pete picked us up, on time, from our hotel in Akumal and drove us to Dos Ojos. He was knowledgeable, friendly, thorough in his briefing and in regards to safety. I had an amazing afternoon and would recommend Blue Life without hesitation. Pete even kindly drove us back to Playa del Carmen afterwards as it was easier for us to get home. Many thanks Frank and Pete.

    Top Rate Diving Came out to Playa this past week. We had scheduled many dives to be done throughout the week. Blue Life was very organized. We dove with Samantha in Cozumel on the \"wall\". She was very sweet and helpful. Peter dove with us for the rest of our dives. English speaking always a plus. Super outgoing and fun to dive with. Peter picked us up from our hotel and drove us out to the dive boat for the salt dives, and for the Cenotes...picked us up and did the thirty minute drive with us. Willing to hold your hand if you need it, but for a seasoned diver you will feel like he is your friend. Had a fabulous time. Thank you Frank, Karla, Peter and Sam.

    EXCELLENT, KNOWLEDGEABLE, ENJOYABLE We used Blue Life diving to do a private dive. Our family was of 3 people and we were sent a dive master \"PETE\" who was outstanding! Pete was from the UK so his English was perfect and very clear. Pete was extremely thorough and very knowledgeable. Pete also takes his job, and dive safety very seriously. We took a refresher course prior to our Akumal Dive and Cavern dive and I was very sure, we would be in good hands with Pete. I would strongly recommend this dive shop to anyone who wants to dive here in Mexico and needs an English speaking dive master. Very professional and worth every penny.

    Unforgettable scenery with reliable tuition To experience the underwater world in the \"sink holes\" of Mexican jungle is a very exotic and cultural way of diving, its like nothing else! We chose Blue Life diving because of Frank\'s reputation in the diving society and by recommendation from his previous students. Our courses gave us new in-depth view of how to dive caverns with sidemount and we appreciated the high level of professionalism. We will for sure come back to dive the cenotes again, that tells a lot about our diving experience with Blue Life.

    Outstanding! Having reviewed the various dive operations in the area Frank and Blue Life were recommended to me by my dive shop Manager back in Indonesia, a guy who knows the top instructors in their fields all over the world. Working in the industry i\'ve experienced a lot of good courses run by true professionals and I have to say that Frank is truly exceptional at what he does. Aside from the fact he wrote the PADI sidemount course and that he is an intrinsic part of cave exploration in the area his teaching is up to date and bang on point- While some instructors may teach you simply to dive the line Frank dives the cave: awareness a key point to his training and while you\'re consciously learning the skills to keep safe and explore this incredible world Frank is reinforcing those points through a level of training where every minute underwater teaches you to be the best you can and stay safe doing it. During the course I also had the opportunity to meet and talk with the some top explorers in the field and everyone of them acknowledged great respect for Frank as a man at the top of his game. So here\'s my recommendation- Dive with Blue Life for one of the most rewarding experiences of your life!

    The most incredible dive op. We found Blue Life (Frank and Karla) through the ScubaBoard forum. It began simply with us asking questions about diving in the area and they were kind enough to offer their experiences and local knowledge. We decided based on the prompt and genuine replies that we would dive with Blue Life. After more than a month of email correspondence prior to heading to Mexico we had everything planned out thanks to their excellent communication skills and dedication to their business and passion. We were incredibly happy with all of our cenote and ocean dives and couldn\'t imagine doing it with anybody else. We did have one small issue arise which was not Blue Life\'s fault - despite this, they still made every effort to accommodate us and ensure that our trip and memory of diving in Mexico was nothing less than it should have been - Incredible. After diving with Blue Life we have also decided that when we decide to do our Cave certifications we will not even consider doing it through anyone else. Blue Life\'s dedication to safety and their veteran experience in the field makes them the obvious choice. Thank you for a memorable trip and we look forward to seeing you in the future. T and N

    Awesome customer service and individualized attention Blue Life & Frank came highly recommended from two friends of mine in the diving world, and within a couple of emails back and forth I could already tell Frank was running a highly efficient, highly professional and organized operation -- which is a huge blessing when you\'re on an extended road trip through the Yucatan with plenty of other logistics to plan besides your cavern diving! From what I saw, they\'re also one of the few shops that give you the option to dive some of the more interesting and less crowded cenotes (by less crowded, I mean there was nobody else at the 2nd cenote, and this was during Christmas! -- as my guide Pete said, \"alone time is hard to get\" and that\'s especially true during the high season in Mx). From what I saw they\'re also the only ones who will agree with you ahead of time on where you\'re going -- they have a tiered pricing system based on the cenotes you dive. On the day of the dive, I ended up being the only diver in the group (there were 3 other snorkelers including my sister) so I got basically a one-on-one tour of two of the best cenotes. My guide Pete was a seasoned vet who\'s dived all over the world for the better part of a decade and was a fantastic and entertaining host to spend the day with. The scuba gear was in great condition, and the dive briefing was highly professional and thorough -- Pete helped me to quickly see the differences between open water and cavern diving and to feel prepared for all the things to keep in mind in there. And of course I was stoked to be able to explore the caverns in a small group! It gets tight in there sometimes, so going with a shop that guarantees a small group like Blue Life is definitely worth it. Finally, the customer service at Blue Life is above and beyond. After the dive I had a couple of questions for Frank and he answered them super quickly and openly, and was proactive in working with me. He holds himself to an extremely high standard of customer service... you can see that\'s why every single review here is Excellent. I did some diving earlier in my trip with an operation on Isla Mujeres who was also competent, friendly, professional; but after working with Frank the comparison between the two is night and day. I only got to do one day of cenote diving on the trip, and with Blue Life it was easily and by far my favorite experience of the entire trip through the Yucatan. In short, if you dive with Blue Life, you can rest easy knowing you\'re going to have an awesome experience and memories for a life time...which is priceless. Thanks so much Frank and Pete!

    Best Birthday Experience Ever I told my husband that I wanted to do cavern diving for my birthday. I had heard that Mexico was the best place to do this because the cenotes around Tulum were supposed to be super amazing. I also love taking under-water photos and I wished to take a few photos to cherish the memory. After a lot of research, I found a reputable diving company via the PADI website, who then went on to recommend Frank to us. At the time, we decided to kill 2 birds with one stone, to do the Speciality Diver course in Cavern Diver and enjoy cavern diving. We were in contact with Frank via email at the beginning and he was very knowledgable in advising what courses were available, how long it would take, the reading material we would need to do and subsequent online test. He even recommended Side Mount as an option and we decided to do that too. We were sent a little video on how to practice on our buoyancy prior to our arrival as we only had a few days in Mexico so a lot of pre-prep work was required eliminating unnecessary class room time and maximising on hands-on in the water experience. Frank was able to tailor our course over 3-4 days and also helped me to take a photo of this very special experience, allowing me to also stop once in a while to take a photo quickly whilst on our strict training. We started off with training just the 2 of us, then a 3rd person joined which made the training experience even more challenging and fun. Frank is a very patient and calm teacher, but he is no softy and makes you work for the answers and solutions, he also has a wicked sense of humour and is very generous with his time. He went beyond our expectations and picked us up every morning, hand picking some of the best and most beautiful cenotes for our training, and took us to a great local place for drinks and the biggest bowl of ceviche I have ever seen. He even went as far as getting us a bottle of this local tequila that we wanted and hand delivered it to our hotel. We were so touched as it was a hell of a long drive back. My advice is that you do need a thick full length wet suit and your rash vest as it does get super cold in there, but do bring your own mask and fins. And a hat for when Frank does the verbal training above water. It is disgustingly hot before you go in the cave in full gear but once in the water it is a sweet relief. The experience was everything I thought it would be, I was amazed how different it was to swim in salt water to rain water in a matter of seconds. The light that shone through the cave ceiling holes looked like UFO beams coming down from the sky with loads of cat fishes swimming around. It was totally amazing. We came away with more qualifications than I thought we would and I am very proud to say we are now certified as: 1. Sidemount Diver (TDI) Cavern Diver (TDI) Sidemount (Padi) Cavern Diver (Padi) Sidemount Diver (SDI) I would highly recommend Blue Life and Frank as your trainer, AND PERSONALLY THANK FRANK for the best ever birthday experience.

    Glorious cenotes Did four glorious days of cenote diving with Frank\'s business partner Cesar. Had found Frank via Scubaboard.com. Cenote diving is a beautiful and surreal experience that every diver with good buoyancy skills must seek out. Dove Chikin Ha, Gran Cenote, Calavera, Angelita, Dreamgate, The Pit and Pet Cemetery. Each was different form the last, from shallow two-meter deep cruises through complex, otherworldly speleotherms to deep,spooky dives into clouds of stinging hydrogen sulfide. So different from your run-of-the-mill tropical angelfish/triggerfish dive. Cesar was a competent and reassuring guide with whom I would be happy to dive again.

    Cenotes!!!! Was going to PDC and posted a msg online for guides and dive shops in the area. Got a number of ppl on Scubaboard.com that recommended Frank. Hooked up with him and planned some of the itinerary w/ him via facebook. Had a awesome time. Went well beyond in accommodating us and our requests to go see specific cenotes as well as recommending some as well. Awesome dives, great guide.

    First time diving the cenotes. A friend and I were in Mexcio and wanted to experience diving the cenotes. After discussing all the different dive sites with Frank we decided on The Pit and Pet Cemetry. They were two amazing dives and Frank was awesome. He is extremely knowledgeable, professional and made the experience very easy and exciting. I hope to go back to Mexico soon and when i do i will be diving with Blue Life! I highly recommend them.

    Eat, Sleep and Dive.....Living the dream! Diving in Mexico was one of my top expereinces! Between reef diving and cenote diving you have so many options! Our guide and now good friend Cristobal\'s was amazing, we could not have asked for a better guide. We did two days of reef and ship wreck diving, wandered over to Cozumel for a day and then we started in on the cenotes! The cenotes were quite the exciting adventure and Cristobal always made sure we were well prepared. His knowledge of how to properly plan and navigate the dives was so reassuring it made the diving even more enjoyable. My teammates and I were so happy with all of the dives. It would be hard pick a favorite dive, but two that really stood out to me were El Pit and Angelita. El Pit was a giant hole that had a thick sulfur layer around 30m(??) that you were able to descend down through that looked like a dense fog, you could barely see a foot in front of you. It was so much fun. I would highly recommend this trip to experienced divers who have their buoyancy under full control because kicking up sand and nudging the stalactites is never fun for anyone. This is a great trip for people who want to either plan group dives or want to take their own solo vacation and dive with Cristobals! :) Have fun!

    Awesome Cavern Diving! I was in Cozumel for a dive trip for a week this Spring. We were lucky enough to head over to Playa for a day of cenote diving. Had an incredible experience with Blue Life - guides were friendly, knowledgeable, safe and of course, fun! This was my first time cavern diving, and I loved it. Highly recommended!

    Excellent... Professional & fun. Great diving, great people, great experience. Cristobal could not have been more helpful. He is an exceptional guide and created a schedule for the dive sites that we wanted to see. With his expert advice we enjoyed a fantastic diverse range of cenote dives. From being picked up in the morning from our hotel, throughout the dives, to being returned home; the day could not have been better ran. Fantastic small groups allowed us to enjoy the cenotes without the hassle of larger (multiple guide) tours. Blue life\'s professionalism made me feel exceptionally comfortable despite not cavern diving before. If I could give them a higher score (than 100%) I would.... Amazing.

    Cavern diving with blue life- amazing I did 4 dives with omer last week, our guide was cris. First of all, as omer said- the caverns were amazing, very different from normal ocean diving, one of the \"musts\" in the diving world.. Something you have never seen before. The ocean dives were asa beautiful as always. Second, all the management of frank and cris made the experience very pleasant- from the beginning with all the info we got about the dives, thru the preperations and what should we expect in the dives, and to the dives itself- cris did a great job, i enjoyed it very much. Very comfortable- great guide and a great guy in general. Continue with your good work!

    AMAZING experience!!! After i got recommendations on FB and on TA i decided contact Frank, He gave me all the information I needed about diving around Playa Del Carmen. If you are looking for someone who knows about dive sites in the area especially Cenotes sites. I dove with Cris. Besides of being a great guy, he gave us a lot of info about the area and the dive sites we were about to dive and let us feel very relaxed and secure. First we dove in \"The Pit\" a deep cenote with crystal blue waters and la_res of sea water and sulfur which was mind blowing and a very cool, beside the stalagmites that you see there, no doubt an experience very different from the \"normal\" ocean dives. the second site was \"The Bat Cave\", not as deep as the first cenote but with very beautiful stalagmites and good training for your buoyancy skills. I also dove 2 ocean dives with Cris, and it really felt that he was diving with me and not for me.. In conclusion, I highly recommend diving with Blue Life if you are looking to dive in PDC and the area, small groups and great guides.

    Incredible diving, best dive operators I have been with Frank and Cris were real professionals from the moment I emailed all the way through our diving. My wife and I can\'t wait to return to do more cave diving. We did \"the pit\\\" and \\\"Dos ojos\\\". Two incredible dives that were fun as incredibly relaxing thanks to our guides!!

    Peak Experience My wife and I had the privilege of diving with Frank Gutierrez yesterday. He and Marijke Hoos, his student, took us through two cenotes, \"The Pit,\\\" and \\\"Pet Cemetery.\\\" I am still trying to absorb the experience. Frank is a professional, thorough, and confidence-inspiring diver, guide and instructor. Preparation for the dives included the most comprehensive briefings I have ever had. We brought our own gear, and Frank and Marijke set it up right for the conditions. If I were just a few years younger, I would be signing up for cavern and cave courses from Frank. What a day! Like I said, it was a real privilege to dive with pros like these.

    Playa del Carmen/Cozemel/Cenote diving Awesome experience! Best dive operation in the region! Total attention on the customer(s) with a huge focus on diving safely. The equipment is good, staff professional and friendly, the location and dives are spectacular! We had previously dove with Frank, the owner and Divemaster on a trip to Kauai and were impressed enough to seek him out for our dives in Mexico. He again exceeded our expectations. He and his staff are fantastic. Extremely knowledgable, attentive and focused on making sure you have a memorable dive experience. The ocean dives were exceptional, but do not miss diving the cenotes!! Absolutely the best diving experience ever! I must admit, I thought diving an open fresh water pit would be boring, but what a surprise! If you want an experience that 99.99999% of the worlds population will never see, follow Frank or his staff into one of the cenotes. A dive experience of a lifetime!
