Space is very limited so don't wait, book now!
We will be training at Cenote Angelita
The Cenote Angelita (“Little Angel”) is a beautiful underwater cavern with a peculiar backstory. Tucked 17km south-west of Tulum in a lush jungle, this 200 foot flooded cave is part freshwater, part saltwater. The first 100 feet of the hole is crystal clear fresh water. At the bottom of this, you'll discover a hazy layer of hydrogen sulfate, separating the fresh and salt water. Tops of tree branches reach up through this layer, adding to this hauntingly beautiful effect. Divers compare this to what an underwater river might look like. This phenomenon is referred to as a Halocline. Haloclines form when salt and fresh water meet, causing the salinity of the water to change drastically. They can typically be found in underwater caves by coastlines. The fresh water from the jungle layers over top of the denser salt water from the sea. Creating the "underwater river" illusion.
Getting out to Angelita Cenote is a slight hike from the road, so be prepared with a way to carry your gear. We will be practicing rescue, free immersion, and controlled weight skills here.
