Let’s face it: Unless you’re an avid snowboarder or a ski instructor in Crested Butte, Colorado, the winter quickly becomes a bummer just south of Christmas time.
Ren and Ashley Chapman of Evolve Freediving have teamed up with Carlos and Gaby Coste of Deepsea Bonaire to start 2018 off right. They’re hosting their second adventure exploring the cenotes of the Yucatan Peninsula slated for February 24-March 4.
Join the crew for what they’re calling “Cenotes Adventure 2018.” The all-inclusive adventure conveniently begins and ends in the international hub of Cancun, Mexico and continues throughout the Yucatan peninsula. Adventurers will explore the underwater world daily as the crew travels to remote areas to find the most pristine cenotes.
In addition to underwater exploration, freedivers will also look inward as each day will include access to depth training on dive lines with some of the most experienced and thorough safety divers on the planet. And if your gills get too wet and need drying out, the crew has also planned trips to Mayan ruins and other points of interest.
All-inclusive means never having to think about your next meal, travel logistics or where you’re going to lay your head at night. The crew will take care of almost everything for you. Wake up after a good night’s rest and enjoy a pre-breakfast yoga session. Have a breakfast designed with freediving in mind, pack a dive bag and let the crew handle the rest. Snacks will be provided along the way as well as extensive feedback on diving techniques. This experience is perfect for any freediver wanting to explore depth, take a vacation or just try something different in the dead of winter.
Carlos Coste has extensive experience freediving in this particular region and has this to say about it:
“The cenotes are marvelous and unique water spaces in the planet because they are naturally beautiful, crystal clear, decorated with huge cave shapes and ray lights coming trough their natural entrances. There are thousands of cenotes in the Yucatán Peninsula. All of them are unique and special. Freediving the cenotes will be a super experience. A dream come true.”
