BuoyancyQuest does not teach cave diving or offer to conduct cavern tours for open water divers. John is a "FULL CAVE" Certified diver since 1995, not a Cave Diving Instructor. We offer workshops that develope "high end" buoyancy control SKILLS, the kind that are needed to just show up for the first day of cave class. The kind of fundamentals, that sadly, most people do not have on the first day of cave class, even the open water instructors and divemasters who "SHOULD" know better.
We promise to help you develop skills that will set you apart from most others on your first day of technical diver training.
WHAT WE DO OFFER: is to arrange for our workshop participants to go on a Cenote Tour with colleagues that we have known for many years and to sample an environment where solid fundamentals are critical to success. We believe that there is no better time to experience this introduction to caves, than right after a week of practicing Frog Kick & Buoyancy Control SKILLS.
PLEASE VISIT OUR OTHER CENOTE PAGE: for hints that may help you plan a Cenote Tour, even if you are not one of our DIVE TRAVELERS.
better time to do a cavern tour
than right after a week of buoyancy practice?
BuoyancyQuest can arrange an optional Cenote Tour after the compleation of the Frog Kick & Buoyancy Control Workshop.
This adventure includes round trip passage on the ferry that runs between Cozumel and Playa del Carmen, two single tank dives in the Mayan Underworld and lunch.
We think that divers who have just devoted thirteen dives to polishing their buoyancy skills and their frog kick, deserve to experience something special. Such divers, owe it to themselves to do this "with style".

CENOTE DIVER III
MAYA is an area of
the Mexican State of Quintana Roo that includes some
of the best cave diving in the world. These
portals to the Maya
Underworld offer a rare opportunity for the open water diver to
experience a little bit of the beauty of these incredible underground
rivers. Buoyancy Control is very importanttto
all divers who venture into this extreme envioronment, both cave divers
and those recreational divers who opt for this rare treat. Buoyancy
Control not only protects the diver from injury but it protects the
decorated portions of the cavern from damage caused by careless or unskilled divers. Make no mistake
.... this is a serious overhead environment,
even for the divers who never leave the zone of ambient
BuoyancyQuest has been selling "just for fun" recognition items i.e. embroidered patches and silk screened t-shirts for about 6 years. We recently took these items off of the diving website and gave them a new home on their own website:
