Recreational Diving Courses In Playa Del Carmen

Join us on our next scuba diving courses in Playa del Carmen to become a privileged member of our community  and to expand your knowledge & skills mastery as a certified diver

“Begin With The End In Mind”

All our recreational courses are taught using a hogarthian configuration: backplate & wing with a 7ft/2.1m long hose regulator and alternate air source on a bungee necklace. This minimalistic configuration was born out of a need of standardization for exploration project in order to build capacity, safety and cohesion within the management of resources and team members, and is now the global reference for technical diving. It provides the simplest and most meaningful approach to scuba diving, providing comfort and efficiency in your every day diving.

The whole philosophy is to start your journey with the end in mind, meaning you will learn the fundamental skills and procedures that will remain the same throughout your diving career should you want to evolve in the future. Rather than having a configuration that is limited in its application as well as practicing a diving method that will be proven obsolete, the diver will be able to practice the right skills and gear that will grow with them, which in the end will make you a more capable, confident, safe and thinking diver right from the start.

At Elite Divers International, all our instructors will provide an exclusive experience with a maximum of 3 students per course. Theses scuba diving lessons will take place in Playa del Carmen Marine Reserve, Cozumel Marine Park and some training Cenotes between Playa del Carmen and Tulum. You will benefit from a relax teaching environment adapted to your learning speed and competencies without pressure. We pride ourselves to enforce the safety standards established by our diving organisations, reducing the maximum authorized student ratio per instructor and going beyond the minimum performance and knowledge requirements thanks to years of teaching and practicing both recreational and technical diving.

Students are paying for a course, but certifications must be earned. We will do our outmost to get your skills and knowledge up to scratch, and if this means extra dives or academic sessions, so be it (extra rate will apply if necessary). We recommend our students to plan at least 2 extra days for make ups / weather conditions / sickness / mid-course breaks or other unforeseen events.
