Deep Diving


Deep diving is a real pleasure as you experience the thrill of going deeper, feeling the excitement and the relaxation of diving in a quieter and more remote deepness. Deep diving is also an important skill valuable to learn as it is needed for dive sites and wrecks with more difficult access.

To do a deep dive it is required to have an Advanced Open Water Certification course and a specialty in Deep diving for a maximum of 140ft.  or deeper dive with a Tech Diver certification course.

The important thing to remember is that deep diving is a skill, which means it takes practice and tutoring to dive deep safety.


Today, the equipment configuration in “fashion” is “sidemount” and the breathing gas “helium”.

Side mount or back mount + stage cylinders configuration fit fine for our boats and crew assistance.

Helium helps divers to reduce the Nitrogen percentages on the breathing gas which result on less narcotic effects.  The Akumal Dive Shop offers you the chance to experience the benefits of helium and nitrox on a very nice dive to 110ft for 25 minutes. As a first experience you will be able to enjoy the ease of deep diving and be aware of how considerable the risks are minimized while using helium. Try it today! and experience a deep dive that will change your dive life forever!
