16 divers from 11 nations came together because HP and Steve from Go Sidemount had that great and funny idea. And I was part of it (it’s me on the thumbnail bottom right – sidemount in black with two lights). Look what came out and enjoy.
Anyone that has been diving with me before knows that one of my big priorities besides safety is conservation. The step was therefore quite logical to apply for a membership with the local dive and watersport association called APSA. This organisation has set the official regulations on how safely conduct cavern dives and promoted it in the area. Signs put up at the cenotes help the cavern guides with their briefing.
As APSA Member I am also affiliated with the Hyperbaric Chamber in Playa del Carmen for any dive related injury or any other medical emergency.
APSA members are business professionals dedicated and committed to ensuring our divers safety, providing quality service, and preserving our precious environment.. They are also involved with several projects for conservation with regard to the lionfish or the bullsharks. If you would like to check their website out, please follow this link to APSA (only on Facebook).
There are many people I want to thank that helped me arrive to where I am today, that shaped me because of their friendship, their advise, their critique, their support.
For the cave diving and diving-caves.com, you were most important in that process.
Dai Jones; cave buddy and my intro-to-cave instructor. Yes, you were the one that hooked me to the world of caves.
HP Hartmann: cave buddy and friend. Thanks for all those cool pictures and that you are taking up with me.
Steve Bogaerts: my sidemount instructor; I am happy to be your hobbit.
Thank you also for those that gave pictures that I use on this page.
Diving Caves is the invitation I would like to extend. Come diving caves with me. You will find this webpage new and still growing and you also will see that cave diving is a growing market with many guides nowadays offering their services. I am not new in this business, I have been working as a guide and instructor for recreational and technical diving for several years in the area and have a good knowledge of the caves.
The Riviera Maya is the paradise for those that want to go diving caves. Come and get hooked as so many others.
This webpage is in progress and I have put it online so that people searching for cavetraining and guided diving in the Riviera Maya will be able to find me. I am not new in this business, just the webpage. Many posts in English will be put online shortly, if you have more questions, please do not hesitate in contacting me.
