ProTec Tulum

Opened in 2011, ProTec Tulum is a state of the art, purpose built facility, designed to accommodate all of your diving needs. Right on the doorstep of the most extensive flooded cave system in the world, our Tulum location is an action packed shop full of passionate cave divers and instructors. We now proudly offer on site accommodations at our “BaseCamp” – accommodation designed by divers, for divers.

ProTec Tulum offers diver and instructor training, guiding services and support for visiting cave and rebreather divers, two classrooms and a full retail shop. Our shop is well stocked with all the dive equipment needed for cave diving. We always have 797 Sofnolime CO2 absorbent in stock for our CCR Rebreather divers. We also run the biggest fill station in the area, with two L&W silent, high-volume compressors, a nitrox membrane compressor, a massive Nitrox 32 bank and an air/helium/oxygen bank with a double stage double action booster pump. 

Don’t feel like bringing everything with you? We have plenty of rental dive gear to choose from, including CCR Rebreathers and DPVs. We also offer photographic and video services and expedition support on special request.
