Diving-School: Dripstone Diving
Dripstone Diving is a small dive shop, operating in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. Our passion is to show recreational divers the beauty of the Cenotes along the Riviera Maya. We offer cavern tours – cenote diving for recreational divers. Cenote diving is nothing else, than diving in the entrance area of a cave system. On a cavern tour every diver which holds a diving certification, is more than welcome to join us. And all dives can be performed in normal scuba gear.
Diving in the Cenotes is something unforgettable and if you would like to go even deeper into the caves, we also offer quality individual diving training from beginner up to full cave diver.
Dripstone Diving only teaches diving courses in small classes, our ratio student/instructor does never exceed 2:1. Like this nobody will need to kneel on a pool floor to perform the essential diving skills, which is not very realistic anyway, but what is often taught. We will teach you how to perform the skills while hovering in midwater, from the first minute on, in real diving conditions. Our mission is to teach the most modern diving techniques. And we are convinced that only a diver which has a good buoyancy control, a nice trim and uses different propulsion techniques is a safe diver.
Besides the standard diving courses we do also offer other interesting courses, such as a technical Sidemount course, or a Solo diver course.
On top of that and depending on the season we also have the chance to show you the bull sharks and the whale sharks. The bull sharks are here during the winter months and we offer bull shark feeding and bull shark watching dives. The whale sharks visit us during the summer months and is fun and a very nice experience for the whole family and non-divers too.
