What divers say about us
“First time i went diving with Alex was in December 2015. The plan was to see and discover only the cenotes in the cavern area. But during this week i learned so many new things, that i knew pretty quick that Alex will be the right instructor for me, to take a sidemount course.
Up to the second last day i was convinced that i only want to see the caverns and that there would be no way to enter any further into the cave systems. But then Alex showed me a very special cenote and i had a blast. Result: Beginning of Juli 2016 i went back to Mexico with the goal to become a TDI Sidemount Diver and afterwards also a TDI Cavern Diver. There was a lot to do, to learn, to practice new skills and a lot of sweat and effort. But i don’t regret one single second of it, neither a dollar i spent on these trainings. It is actually the opposite and i already booked my next stay in Mexico.
What really impressed me was the manner how Alex is teaching, which brought me further step by step. My dive buddies back home, actually couldn’t believe what they saw and some of them even said, i got a brand new dive buddy! I never had so much fun while diving and learning and i am so thankful to have learned that much. I am really looking forward to my next stay in Mexico.”Xavier Marest, Germany
“I had a fantastic trip with Marco to “the Pit” cenote. What an experience!
Apart from the stunning dive, the whole day was well organised and everything went super smoothly.
Mucho recommended! Thanks!”Nathalie H., Switzerland
“During my diving holiday in Mexico I primary dived in the cenotes and often with Marco as my instructor. I felt safe and comfortable in the company of Marco and he was always ready to help. His professional knowledge is impressive and he is very good at explaining.
Marco is very inspiring, lots of good company, and has lived in the area for so long that he has a great insight to diving sights, restaurants and many more activities.
All in all I have had many great experiences with Marco as my diving instructor. At any time I would love to come back and dive with him, and recommend him to others.”Maiken Kretzschmer, Denmark
