If underwater photography is a small niche in the wide world of photography, cave-diving photography is its obscure foreign cousin. Challenges include taking enough light into very dark places, managing the risk of adding tasks to an already task-loaded technical dive and finding something to photograph when there's not a single colorful critter in sight. On the other hand, the crystal-clear water, mysterious darkness and lure of the unknown can be a fantastic canvas for crea
ENGLISH On this occasion, the project I had in mind was to make a short film in which I could present myself and represent something of what we do in Advanced Diver Mexico. It all started with making a promosion similar to the one I saw in 1999 on tv. and he helped me make the decision and certify me in cave diving in the year 2000. I go back to the year 1999 and I tell you, that one night in the room of my apartment in the city of Cancun relaxed after an arduous day of work,
Great day at Jardín del Edén with Danny Fugate and Pablo Gamba! After 3 hard days of IANTD DPV cave course, today the kids have time to enjoy and practice what they have learned on the program. As usual, I take my camera and take some pics. Training is the key to improve one's diving skills. Cave diving needs hard work and it is unbelievably rewarding and beneficial for all of us. #sidemount #undewaterphotography #Mexico #sidemount #caves #cenotes #cavediving

Una vez mas pasamos a visitar a esta maravillosa cueva, que belleza, ver su esplendor y el tamaño de estos tunnels. Por primera vez visitan Josue y Pablo esta increíble y grandiosa gruta, no tenían palabras para expresar lo que vieron, y ellos están acostumbrados a ver cuevas en Yucatan pero nada como esta! El plan comienza una vez que nos ponemos de acuerdo de ir a bucear, por lo general yo tengo un arreglo con todos mis estudiantes locales, y es el siguiente, una vez que e
Coop 1 is a cenote part of the Tux-ku-Paxa cave system, in the same road to Nai-Tucha cenote, you can get the key at Zero Gravity, the entrance fees is $100 pesos. The road to Coop 1 is very rocky and is in the middle of the jungle. The ride is about 30 min. from the high way, in the cenote entrance you can appreciate the made much bigger with a bulldozer, the dive is worth it! The average depth is about 28ft, is full of formations, cause is far from the city expect many mosq
I have been reading a few posts regarding cave instructors and decided to try and point out some qualities that you may want to look for when shopping for a cave instructor. First off I want to clarify that I think that a proper cave diver training program is the most rigorous non-military/non-commercial dive training you will ever go through. That is because the cave environment is the most demanding environment that non-military/non-commercial divers will dive in. Because t
