Pro Dive Mexico - An award winning company!



Every dive center on the globe, especially IDC centers, will state that they are the best. Guess what, so do we! But how many centers can actually support their statements? Very few. We have just received a personal congratulation letter from Drew Richardson, President & Chief Operating Officer at PADI Worldwide. Read for yourself:

Dear Markus,

I wanted to take this opportunity to congratulate you and Pro Dive Mexico on your recent nomination at DEMA for the "PADI Americas Overall Oustanding Achievement Award".

On behalf of everyone here at PADI, I would like to extend a hearty congratulations on a well-deserved nomination!

Thank you for your support and keep up the great work!

Best regards,

Drew Richardson
President & Chief Operating Officer
PADI Worldwide

To explain, PADI Americas will every year nominate 3 members only, for each category of excellence out of their whole region, being North America, Central America & South America.
Pro Dive Mexico has been nominated in not only one, but two categories! Only the best out of these best, meaning the ones that are nominated for several and not only one award, will then be nominated for the OVERALL Oustanding Achievement Award.

April IDC and great weather.

Just a few days ago Pro Dive Mexico started the April IDC with students from all over the world.
With students coming from England, France, Belgium, New Zealand and USA, makes this IDC a very interesting melting pot of culture and opinions.

Quote from the Course Director
"Teaching IDC's is not only my passion, but also so rewarding for me, as I on every course learn something more about instructor training from the students.
They bring with them new ideas and believes that help me understand to better teach this level of courses."

So far this IDC had had the best weather possible, with a heat wave of high tempratures, sunny days and clam seas.

Stay updated on the this site and facebook.

100% passing rate at the PADI Instructor Exams!

This Sunday at Cenote Ponderosa, Pro Dive Mexico's instructor candidates showed their skills and all passed the 3 day exams held by PADI headquaters.

It was the work of 2 weeks of training with Platinum Course Director Anders Heegaard and his staff.
"It was all my pleasure to teach this IDC and sure that we will see many of the new instructors again either here in Mexico, or in other popular dive destinations around the world."
