Full-service, PADI 5-Star Dive Resort and Instructor Development Center on Mexico’s Caribbean coast. Dive the pristine reefs of Xcalak Reef National Park and Banco Chinchorro Biosphere Reserve, far from the mainstream crowds of the Riviera Maya. Recreational, technical, and professional diving instruction. Tarpon, American crocodiles, manatees, and more.
With miles of pristine reefs, shallow-water shipwrecks, bottomless deep-wall dives, and an array of big animals and other exotic marine creatures, Mexico’s best diving is just a few hours’ drive down the coast from the crowded Riviera Maya, though it feels like worlds away.
XTC Dive Center is a full-service, PADI 5-Star dive resort and Instructor Development Center located in the tiny fishing village of Xcalak, the southernmost town on the Caribbean coast, and within the Xcalak Reef National Marine Park. This unique ecosystem offers dozens of fantastic dive sites only 5 to 30 minutes from our pier. Just 36 nautical miles away lies the legendary , a vast, protected marine sanctuary that sees fewer than 1,000 divers per year.
XTC is the only dive operator running in both Xcalak and Chinchorro. We can accommodate divers of all levels, providing world-class facilities, training, and service in a remote, natural setting.
Our facility is designed as a one-stop shop. It includes a dedicated tech diving facility, complete with a custom-built gas-blending station.
Our training programs far exceed the highest industry standards, from recreational scuba courses to professional and technical diving training at instructor levels.
We know how lucky we are to live and work in one of the last unspoiled dive destinations in the Caribbean: XTC is committed to responsible tourism, sustainability, and conservation.
You will find that spirit in everything we do, from our facilities to our one-of-a-kind trips and rigorous training philosophies.
