About us

“Truly great instructors can distill the essence of their art into something simple, elegant and beautiful. Less is More. But to do less you have to learn more.”
Steve Bogaerts

Elite Divers International is born out of passion for the underwater world and scuba diving some years ago in Thailand. After traveling around the globe through Asia, the Persian Golf and Australia, we finally settled down in Mexico after falling in love with the Cenotes and Cave Diving. We feel privileged to have such a wide diversity of diving environments to our disposal and the magic of those places is making hard to ever consider leaving again.

We pride ourselves in offering a personalised service and small groups for the most comfortable and adapted experience to your needs. We invite you to join us and dive with us to share our passion, transmit that flame should you decide to become one of our esteemed Padawans.

  • positive review  Expérience incroyable avec Arthur. Nous étions un groupe d'amis voulant plonger ensemble. Élite divers nous a organisé une journée personnalisée de plongée dans différentes cenotes. Nous n'étions pas rassuré de plonger en Cenote, car c'était la première fois. Arthur a été très professionnel, et à fait des briefings de qualité qui nous ont entièrement rassurés. Ça a été une expérience inoubliable du début à la fin ! Je recommande à 200% !!

  • positive review  From the first point of contact with EDI, I could not have been more impressed and pleased by the experience. Anne Laure responded to my first message within minutes and truly made me feel like a valued client, start to finish. She teamed me up with Søren who is not only friendly and personable, but extremely knowledgeable and passionate about cenote diving. It was awesome to learn about the history of the cenotes and how each one has something different to offer to those lucky (or brave) enough to dive them. Once we got in the water after our briefing, Søren did everything he could to make sure I was informed, comfortable, and up for the task of diving these natural beauties. He also gave me tons of advice and pointers, in and out of the water, which I can use in my future as a diver. The dives themselves were a life changing experience - one that I’ll remember forever. I loved it so much that signed up for another day. I should also mention that I briefly met Arthur who was teaching a side mount course but was kind enough to introduce himself and thank me for diving with the company. I haven’t yet had the pleasure of meeting Anne Laure, but through her great communication with me throughout both days of my dives I feel like I already have. She was so kind and warmly welcomed me to the diving community. So what I’m saying is that Elite Divers International rocks!! I will absolutely be diving with the again. Do yourself a favor a give them a try! You won’t regret it!

  • positive review  These charming and knowledgable instructors showed us the best diving in Yucatan. In a few days we got to see the most beautiful selection of Cenotes and went out on a non-fed dive with the bull sharks 🦈. Anne-Laure and Arthur are highly trustworthy and knowledgable and made sure we had an amazing and very safe diving experience in the caverns and caves. Their equipment is top-notch and we were overwhelmed by their extraordinary service. Thanks for having us! We’d highly recommend going with them and are sure to come back!

  • 5 star review  I went diving a few times with Anne-Laure and it has been amazing. She is a beautiful diver, very professional, dedicated to her divers, passionate about her job, thorough but cool at the same time. I hope to keep diving with her for a long time and to get my full cave certificate with her as my instructor one day! Do not hesitate and go discover the magical beauty of the cenotes with Anne-Laure!

  • positive review  I had the opportunity to go diving in Playa Del Carmen during my family vacation (left my whole family and took a bus alone hahah woops) and met up with Arthur to go diving in the Cenotes. It was FANTASTIC! they came and picked me up, gave me gear, and got me ready to go on some of the most fantastic diving I've seen. Anne-Laure communicated with me for weeks beforehand as I was a bit nervous to get to playa del carmen alone hahaa but it ended up working out! Arthur is way prepared and made me feel very comfortable as this diving was a little more challenging than I was prepared for. I wish I had more time (and more money) to go back but one day of diving was fantastic enough as is. Thank you!!

  • positive review  This is a boutique dive operation - small groups and personalized service from the moment you contact them. They make sure to provide the best possible dive itinerary that is safe, within your diving experience and fun! Anne-laure, Arthur and Soren were a pleasure to dive with! If you're staying in Playa, dive with these guys and you'll come away with great memories and new dive friends!

  • positive review  I took the Peak Performance Buoyancy class with Arthur and dove in the cenotes with Anne-Laure and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I wasn’t that comfortable after my certification and it was important for me to work on my buoyancy and controlling my descents/ascents. It was a challenging couple of days, but it was definitely worth it. They are both so professional and made me feel comfortable even when I got frustrated with myself. And the cenote experience was AMAZING and one I won't forget. I'll definitely be back!
