About ProTec Dive Centers

ProTec Dive Centers was founded in 2001 in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, right next to some of the world’s most famous cenotes. Since then, we have been at the forefront of cenote diving, cave and technical dive instruction, innovation in CCR and Sidemount techniques, and technical diving support in the world.

In 2011 we opened our second location near the cenotes and caves of Tulum and in 2018 we inaugurated the BaseCamp, our own in-house accommodation for cave divers coming to train or fun dive.

At our dive centers we: 

  • Provide world leading technical and cave diving instruction
  • Pride ourselves in our international team of ten full time technical diving instructors and guides
  • Have facilities ran by the owners with a friendly atmosphere and a positive and neat environment
  • Teach technical dive training in Backmounted doubles, Sidemount and CCR configurations
  • Conduct Technical Instructor Training and Instructor Trainer Evaluations
  • Advance the use and techniques for rebreathers in technical diving
  • Offer CCR and cave diving equipment sales, rentals and support
  • Offer comfortable facilities with multiple classrooms, refreshments, tools, filling stations, tank rental and storage, etc.
  • Support cave exploration, scientific diving, professional photography, expeditions and research

We look forward to making your cave diving trip in Mexico one to remember, thank you for putting your trust in us for over two decades!
