Come and share our passion... these words perfectly reflect the atmosphere at Phocea : First of all, for us diving means pleasure (the pleasure to discover its underwater treasures), professionalism (we dive with the highest safety standards) and a great atmosphere (being serious doesn´t mean it can´t be fun). Come to discover Mexico, a country with a rich culture, ancient traditions, magic places and friendly people. The Yucatan peninsula enjoys a tropical climate, that allows you to dive all year long, in warm waters, with excellent visibility. The water temperature ranges from 79°F and 84°f in the sea, depending on the season and 75°f all year long in the cenotes.Martine, Didier and their French-Mexican team, welcome you to offer you the best of Phocea.
