The ProTec Dive Centers in Tulum & Playa del Carmen team consists of seven full time Instructors. Four are Technical Cave Instructors with Kim, Patrick, Matt and Rob.

There are five additional full time staff members with Rosso, Mali and Jose to keep ProTec Tulum Dive Center open plus Rosalba and Nelson at ProTec Playa Dive Center to keep it running smoothly with its daily operation. 

We offer a unique training opportunity for Instructors as we have with Patrick and Matt two in-house IANTD Instructor Trainers working at ProTec Dive Centers in Tulum & Playa del Carmen full time.

Our staff of full time employees is dedicated to the service of our customers, and we schedule our staff according to our customers needs. We are not a sales agent for divers needs. We are a complete in-house service provider. Our part time employees are guides and Instructors who live and dive in the area and their field of expertiese for years to ensure quality service and customer satisfaction.
