Female divers and male divers seem to view the world a little differently. Many male divers feel that the experience must be intense in order to “count” for something. For example, they may state that it is not a dive unless it has a strong current involved or unless a dangerous sea creature makes an appearance. Men tell stories to impress but seem to forget that a regular dive is also a valuable experience. A dive does not have to be dangerous in order to be exciting. Mandy Shackleton, who works as a marine scientist at Hull University, released a research study several years ago and included her reasoning behind why women are better at diving than men. Are her findings valid? Is it true that women excel in this area, and why is that the case?


Hormonal Advantages

Men are typically thrill-seekers. They are interested in finding something new and exciting while diving, so their bodies give off more adrenaline, testosterone, and cortisol during the experience. As a result, they may engage in riskier behaviors. This same concept applies to driving; Dr. Magnus Johnson, a professor at Hull University, believes men may engage in riskier driving in front of a female companion in order to look good to her. Women, however, are different and are more cautious while driving.



Women pick up on non-verbal cues and are able to use what they see to help determine what they should do. Because divers cannot use their words to convey meaning, non-verbal communication is essential under the water. Women, therefore, seem to have a natural advantage in this area, something that both Nancy Briton and Nigel Forman discussed in their research. As a result of this, women seem to be more efficient divers and are able to deal with any changes as they arise.


According to Michael Messner, who works for the University of Southern California, men typically have less body fat than women. Therefore, women have more natural buoyancy, something that can be corrected with additional weights. It does give women several advantages in the water, however. They don’t expend as much energy, and they stay warm even when the water is very cold.

Leg Strength

Women are more adept at using their legs than men. Male drivers tend to focus on using their upper body to help them in the water, while women are able to tap into their lower-body strength. Richard Hinrichs and Scott Mclean determined that when a man and a women swim the same distance, the man usually kicks more. Women, therefore, are more efficient than men in the water, particularly when using fins that help them go longer distances with fewer kicks. They also take in less air because they are not working as hard. Along these same lines, women’s lungs are smaller. For this reason, they also don’t use as much air as men, even when not in the water. Therefore, their dives are able to last longer and they tend to have more air available for longer periods of time.


Spatial Awareness

Women look at the whole rather than the parts. This means that their spatial awareness skills are strong, which helps them in the water. Taking into account everything else mentioned above as well, women, therefore, do not disturb coral as much as male divers.

When you go diving, watch your friends closely. Do you notice a difference in how men dive versus how women dive? Who do you think are the more efficient divers? Regardless of your observations, we can all improve from one another, so it is always a good idea to watch and be open to tweaking your diving style.

Cave diving in Mexico is one of the main delights of Mexico. And it is even more fascinating if you are the kind of person that feels drawn to the thrills of challenging untouched underwater experience. Although cave diving expeditions are thrilling and captivating, the truth is that it can be quite dangerous. To ensure you are well geared and prepared for what lies ahead, this guide to cave diving in Mexico will answer critical questions and enlighten you.


1. Dangers of cave diving


Do not get it twisted, because cave diving is dangerous. Even in the introductory course of the Open Water Certificate, you will be taught how to handle stressful situations. In other to get ready for cave diving, you need to master a lot of drills, including:
● How to handle a situation when your tank runs out of air.
● How to handle equipment failure
● How to deal with losing a dive buddy
● What to do when your dive buddy gets tangled in the line
● What to do if you ever lose the line that connects to the exit of the cave.


2. Certificates and skills needed for cave diving


If you are that determined to cave dive, then you need to tick off some steps before you go on your first adventure:
● You must have completed an Advanced Open Water Course with a minimum of 130 feet dive.
● You must complete a specialist course related to cavern diving that will allow you to experience low-light conditions and overhead environments.
● You will also need to complete a night dive course


3. Diving techniques


It is all good and well to have all the required certificates and to know all the right caves to dive. But that is not enough, as you will still need to possess instructor-level buoyancy control, and perfect multiple propulsion techniques, including:
● Helicopter turns
● Back kicks
● Flutter kicks
● Frog kicks


4. Cave diving equipment


So far, we have highlighted cave diving is a highly specialized activity. So, having the right equipment is crucial to a successful dive. For example, get a single tank with K-valves with two separate on/off valves and regulator first stages. What this means is that if your valve-to-regulator O-ring should rupture, and the regulator starts to free-flow, you can still turn it off, and use the second tank. Most of the equipment you will be using will be reconfigured to ensure any risk of entanglement and silt kick-up is reduced. So, all inflator hoses, gauges, and regulars and fitted on the suit tightly.

The Wonders Of Cenote Cave Diving

Those who enjoy the thrill of discovery that is part and parcel of the SCUBA experience are continually on the lookout for the next experience that will live in their memories for years. One of the experiences that are growing in popularity is the opportunity to explore the unique underwater environments of the Cenotes of the Yucatan Peninsula’s Riviera Maya.

Cenotes were formed by the erosion of limestone by acidic rain that, over millennia, gradually led to the formation of underground caves. These caves are fed by rivers that flow through the limestone. In time the weight of the roofs and the continued effects of that slow growth of the caverns has led to the roof collapsing. The result has been some of the most visually stunning lagoons, many deep in the jungle.

These lagoons are continually fed by above and below ground freshwater streams and rivers – however, there is another source of the water which fills them – and one that has divers in search of adventure flocking to plunge into one of the many Cenotes which dot areas such as the Playa Del Carmen. That other source is saltwater which flows up the course of the underground rivers and contributes to filling the Cenotes. This leads to the formation of a zone in the Cenotes called the ‘halocline’. This is a zone where the salt and fresh water meet. For those diving the Cenotes the Halocline is clearly visible – and one of the most fascinating sights available to SCUBA divers.

For experienced cave divers, Cenotes are also often the entrance to vast underwater cave systems – some well worth exploring. For instance, the Sistema Sac Actun is the longest underwater cave system in the world.

The attractions of the Cenotes are almost too many to mention. With more than 7,000 to choose from in Yucatan, the diver (or snorkeler) is spoiled for choice. The Cenotes boast unique ecosystems with exotic fish species and flora. the settings of the Cenote are as close to paradise as possible. Colorful birdlife and dense jungle shelter these unique natural features. The waters are often crystal clear and visibility is incredible.

For the ancient Mayan culture in the Yucatan Cenotes were revered as places of worship. It was here that they could commune with Gods and receive the blessings of the clear blue-tinged waters.

Today divers from all over the world are rediscovering the wonders of the Cenotes. Cenote cave diving in Playa del Carmen is an experience that should be on every divers bucket list.
