I know Protec since years and it's definitely one of the best dive centers arround the globe. It's run by group of quite famous tec instructors and exploration divers and diving with them is one-of-a-kind experience.

We went to ProTec to check our options for diving in Tulum and started talking to Jaime, one of the instructors working there. We were really impressed by his openess and professionality, and decided to go diving with him. He recommended El Pit and Dos Ojos, which were both great dives in the cenotes near Tulum. He also provided a... More

Thanks Protec for the awesome 6 days of cave diving. It was our first time in Mexico to cave dive so we organized guided dives with Kim at Protec Tulum. He was awesome. Took us for a 3 hour plus check out dive to Mayan Blue which has to rank as the most awesome check out dive ever! We explored... More

Dove Dos Ojos with Skanda from ProTec. What an amazing experience! The setting was beautiful of course, but Skanda was top-notch as a guide and diver. I enjoy diving with great divers, because I always feel like I learn something from them. Skanda is one of those great divers. As a guide, he was attentive and informative, and made sure... More

Personal service, professional dive guides, patient with newbies, rental equipment, they can handle quickly any of your issues. I had 6 cavern dives over 3 days with a guide. Had fabulous dives and a very professional and accommodating guide.

Well, my experiance with Protec goes back to the days even before Protec Tulum. Back in 2011 when I decided to kickoff my diving development into cave diving I got in touch with Kim Davidsson, already then highly recommended by cave diving community. I completed my Full Cave Diver training curriculum with Kim in 2 super-demanding weeks in January. Ever... More

From initial contact, through sorting accommodation, transfers, pre-course reading materials and answering questions these guys rock. If you are looking at Protec as a dive center then you probably already know their reputation, but their instructors (personal experience of Kim, Patrick and Lelle) are brilliant. Absolute professionals. The courses are hard and you will walk away feeling that you have... More

My third trip to Tulum and again i used ProTec. I cannot imagine using a different shop. Thanks to Kim and Jaime for their expertise and professionalism. We had 6 fantastic days of diving along with seeing 5 new systems. I look forward to another trip this year.

My 15-year-old son and I spent an awesome day diving with instructor Lelle who introduced us to caverns of Carwash and Gran Cenote. Great professional shop with top-notch service!
