So I just returned from my first Mexico cave diving trip. I dove with Protec tulum and it was a great experience. I had my family and some friends with me that are not cave divers so we did a cavern tour day and then I did a day of guided cave diving the next day. The cavern day we did casa cenote which was more of an open water dive but still really enjoyable. We then headed to car wash cenote and followed the gold cavern line which I liked better than casa cenote . All in all a great experience! Our guide was amazing and stayed within the limits of cavern , gave thorough briefings and site knowledge. The next day was my day of guided cave diving. I arrived at Protec tulum and got tanks and loaded up , we went to Nahoch na chich which was down a dirt road and north of tulum. My guide went over the dive plan and showed me the route we would be taking on Dive 1 going upstream on the mainline. I’m intro level so we would be diving intro level. We got in and did our checks and an s drill and headed up the mainline … what an amazing dive very beautiful cave ! The dive was shallow 18ft max depth and we had an hour dive time. We came back up and recalculated and went back upstream to Alberto’s line which was also amazing! We then took a lunch break and had tacos we had gotten earlier and switched to new tanks and discussed the two dives and I proceeded to tell the guide that it was awesome and I was hooked ! We discussed the next dive and we went down stream it was great dive we had a 99 minute run time on the final dive ( longest and best cave dive of my life) . Overall I really enjoyed Nahoch na chich and I’m officially hooked …. Already looking at flights back down without family to do more cave dives! Great experience
