About Us

El Cañon Dive Center

El Cañon was the first dive center in quintana roo back on the year 1962. Formed by la familia Cardenas, original fisherman divers of Isla Mujeres, they found two cañons of spanish galleons and the decided to call the dive center el cañon. The Isla Mujeres was the first place to start offer scuba tours and services, in Mexico and arround the world. We were a small dive shop located on Isla Mujeres that was close during the pandemic times. Now we re-open on the marvelous hotel zone of cancun. To share the knowledge of safe diving, fun of be weigthless, and the real freedom that is the ocean
