  • positive review  Nice to meet passionate divers who love their jobs and treat every dive as though it was their first so many companies who just go through the motions out there but not this one. Tailored to your needs in every way with some mind blowing moments in the cenotes that literally take your breath away. The caves and caverns are a great new adventure for many new divers away from their comfort zone of the open ocean but briefings and safety are paramount with Arthur and Anne so you are in safe hands with them you don't get to call your company elite divers int without living up to the name. Would I dive with them again..absolutely. Would I want to have any training with them..definitely. Would I class them as friends In and out of the water..Yes. for a personal service I couldn't recommend elite divers more highly...until next time 🤘🤘

  • positive review  I can't recommend Arthur and Anne-Laure from Elite Divers International enough! They both offer super friendly and professional service with exquisite attention to details! Whether it is a dive in the ocean or in one of the breathtaking Cenotes the Riviera Maya has to offer you can't go wrong by choosing these awesome guys to fulfill all your Mexican diving needs!!!

  • 5 star review  100% personalized service, it is just you and Arthur. Very experienced and knowledgeable dive instructor and guide! You pay some extra money compared to the group tours or diving centers but you get a 1 to 1 unforgettable experience (rather than being in a big group of people), in addition to his flexibility about timing and the willing to always choose the best time of the day for each dive in order to get the best daylight angle for each “cenote”!! Definitely a MUST DO experience! I’ve been diving for two consecutive days with Arthur!! EXCELLENT!!!!!!!!

  • positive review  My Razor Basic Sidemount course was the best I can do. I have the course with Anne-Laure Huynh. She is so a perfectly girl because I don’t speak not good English and I understand everything. To adjust the Razor wing is not easy but Anne-Laure tinker so long that it’s perfect on your body. We practice much skills of sidemount and Razor specially. I found the back kick was the most complicated skill, but in the end of the course I handled all skills very well. After the course I have 4 fun dives in the Cenotes, so beautifully, so unbelievable I can’t say the right words!!! I can recommend Elite Divers International!!!! The best way to found your perfect balance with your Razor underwater👍🏼👍🏼

  • positive review  These two. I “just” wanted to go diving and instead (lucky me!) I bumped into them. First and foremost they are really special human beings and cannot thank them enough for how they welcomed me. Furthermore they are so prepared and skilled that when you are with them underwater everything seems possible... even considering going side mount or (never say never!) cave diving. It’s funny because I didn’t even know what the Cenotes were before going to Playa (poor me!). But Anne-Laure (my patient dive buddy) made me fall in love with them and their underwater rainbows. Btw, don’t be distracted by her look: beneath her beauty and grace lie a very gentle soul... and a hard core Navy Seal. I’ll definitely be back Thank you!!!!

  • positive review  Je recommande Elite Divers pour découvrir les cenote de la région. Une équipe réactive, professionnelle et passionnée. Nous étions 4 amis et nous étions seul avec Arthur pour ces plongées. J'avais quelques appréhensions sur la plongée en Cenote et grâce à leurs conseils j'ai passé une journée inoubliable. Merci encore ! 5*****

  • positive review  It is always a pleasure diving with Anne-Laure. She strives to give her customers the best possible cenote diving experiences. She is very knowledgeable about the cave systems along the riviera maya and will customize each trip depending on what we want to see, the weather, etc. to make sure we have a great time. I have done cenote diving with many different shops in the last few years and she is by far the most safety-conscious and dedicated guide. I can’t wait to dive with her again - she is the first person I contact whenever I am planning a dive trip to Mexico. Hope to see you soon!
