The Pit is one of the deepest dives available to recreational divers.
After entry divers will descend approximately 30 meters straight down. At this depth they will find a milky hydrogen sulfide cloud that on some days appears almost as a false bottom, and looking up will see the rays of sun shining from above. The divers will find a fallen tree coming out from the sulfide creating an exciting, but almost chilling atmosphere.
The Pit is not only a fantastic diving experience, but an intriguing historical experience. Around the cenote are relics such as bones and pottery from the various ice age animals and peoples.
There is a fee to use big size underwater cameras ( DSLRs, Video cameras) 300 pesos
GoPro, Compact cameras no charge.
