2nd annual SCUBAPRO TEST DIVE a huge success!

Yes, it was a great fun day once again!!!

The second annual Scubapro & Pro Dive Mexico TEST DIVE was again a huge success, and of course a lot of fun!

Hosted by Mexico's leading PADI Career Development Center in Playa Maroma and Platinum Course Director Anders Heegaard, we had some real scuba industry "celebrities" attending the event:

Scubapro Latin America Sales Manager Mr. Roberto Quintana, and Scubapro Mexico Representative Mrs. Silvia Maiz, accompanied by Platinum PADI CD Anders Heegaard and his Pro Dive Mexico colleague, former Queensland, Australia PADI regional manager Jim Hutchinson.

The event was also attended by our GOPRO Assistant Paolo, our italian Maroma instructor Valentina, videographer Leandro as well as by some of our eager Gopro candidates, who sure enjoyed to be part of the great event!

Our fun group was evaluating some exciting new SCUBAPRO gear and items, and the test results will serve the manufacturer in its decisions to launch the products, as well as help our CDC facility determine what equipment will be useful and resistent enough for daily operations. Pro Dive Mexico is an authorized Scubapro dealer, and we only use the worlds Best scuba gear brand for our operations, since only the Best is good enough for our GOPRO Scuba Academy.

Because we know that....DEEP DOWN YOU WANT THE BEST.

Check out the yearly & traditional video, produced by our professional partner Martin Porta from UNDERWATER IMAGER, to get a glimpse of the fun:

Tec course at Pro Dive Mexico

Monday morning was the final dive of the PADI TEC 40 Course. The student (Goretty) and her instructor (Course Director Anders) set out for on a sunny day with calm seas, to complete the graduation dive of the course.
3 days of skill practice and training dives, led up to this great moment.


Dive site was set for Punta Toro and its famous Cantil wall. The cantill is were the barrier reef ends and the bottom drops from about 35m to 400meters!
Diving on this edge is absolutely and amazing experience.
Conditions were great, and the strong currents were expected as usual:-) On the 40meter dive we encountered rays and some lion fish,
but the highlight of this dive site is the sponges (some 5 feet tall) that grow sideways, due to the northern current.


Quote from Goretty:
"My course was amazing!! I had such a good time and I really felt comfortable with the pace and skills of the course. We did different dives doing the 3 day course, but the best was Punta Toro:-)
I can’t wait to come back for my TEC 45 and 50, and who knows maybe one day also my Trimix Course. My instructor (Anders) really took time to explain me in details how the theory and skills work to dive comfortable TEC.
Hopefully I will be back soon."
