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  Anne-Laure patiently answered the million questions I had before even meeting her, and then took my husband and I for two incredible dives in the cenotes. Not only were her briefings thorough, but she was actually quite educational about the sites themselves as well. Her dive management and leadership was impressive to say the least, and we felt incredibly safe in her hands. I would definitely book with her again. 🙂

  • positive review  I cannot recommend Elite Divers enough. Arthur and Anne-Laure are incredibly helpful and responsive and their service is among the most professional I have seen. Diving with Arthur was fantastic. They specialize in Cave and Cenote diving and provide a wonderful experience and introduction to this unique type of diving. If you care about the quality of the service and the guides, this is the place for you

  • 5 star review  Wow! We had an amazing time with Arthur! After finishing our Open Water certification with him he took us on 2 Cenote dives. Absolutely amazing instructor! Professional, friendly and patient. Everything you'd hope for when diving for the first time! If you are looking at doing any diving in Mexico, he is the man to do it with!

  • positive review  First of all I just want to say thank you to Anne-Laure for arranging an amazing diving day for my wife and I on short notice after we had been let down by another company! Our dives themselves were ridiculously good! Our guide was Soren and from the get go he was so informative, passionate and professional! Just from how he was describing the reefs in his briefings made us want to get down there even quicker. Our two dives in Cozumel were better than we could have imagined, we saw so many species that we had never seen before as well as amazing coral formations. The equipment that we used was extremely good and you can tell it is looked after which is what you’d like to see. Anne, Soren and all the crew were brilliant, I’ll be definitely booking another dive through Elite Divers International the next time we’re back in Mexico and I urge anyone who is thinking about doing it does the same!

  • 5 star review  Prise de contact par message avec Arthur, super feeling, on a donc réservé 3 jours de plonger. C’est Anne Laure qui a été notre guide, et je peux que recommender de passer par eux. Super guide / instructeur, organisation au top. Première plonger en Cénote pour nous et ça été juste merveilleux, nous nous sommes sentis en confiance pour profiter au maximum. En gros professionalism et bel rencontre �.

  • positive review  When I asked the ladies in the Girls That Scuba FB group for recommendations for dive companies in Mexico, I had no idea they would come thru with such an amazing company. Anne-Laure and Arthur take the time to figure out what you're interested in and customize it for you. I was the only diver in my group, but I wanted my snorkeler friends to come too. They made it happen when other dive companies said it was either a dive group or snorkel, we could not mix. My friends and I couldn't stop commenting on how they treat you like family! They stick to small groups and know the best times to avoid crowds. I would 100% recommend them to anyone in Mexico even for a discover dive and can't wait to go back next year! Thanks so much guys!
