Pro Dive Mexico, a PADI 5-Star Dive Resort founded in 2003 and one of the most established and recognized IDC & CDC Centers in Latin America located at several 4* and 5* Resorts along the Riviera Maya and in Cozumel, have announced the addition of Dive Computers to their wide array of products.
Cressi Leonardo Dive Computers can be rented at all ten of Pro Dive Mexico’s base locations along the Riviera Maya & Cozumel, making the company the first dive operator in the Mexican Caribbean to provide this kind of equipment to their customers.
Regarding the Leonardo, Cressi themselves say that “the Leonardo is the first and only dive computer designed and built completely by Cressi. An elegant expression of simple, functional design, the Leonardo is a must-have for divers entering the sport and those who ‘just want to dive’.
“A single button interface makes it effortless to program Air, Nitrox and Gauge modes the first time a diver picks the computer up, and an edge-to-edge, high-definition screen gives large numerical displays in a computer that is still compact and travel-friendly.
“The clearly visible battery life indicator and distinct audible alarms deliver critical information as well as peace-of-mind during the dive.
“The Leonardo can also be fully re-set after each use, making it an excellent choice for rental departments.”
“Students who participate in Pro Dive Mexico´s Open Water Diver courses will be provided with the choice of learning to plan their dives by using either a dive computer (their own or rental) or tables. Those who decide to use a dive computer throughout their course do not need to learn the Table/eRDPml, hence, can refrain from doing the extra RDP Quiz and Exam,” adds Angel Navarro, one of Pro Dive Mexico’s permanent Platinum Course Directors.
Everything under one roof, Pro Dive Mexico provides tailor-made world-class experiences, including dive packages, snorkeling safaris, accommodation in coveted 4 and 5 star resorts along the Riviera Maya and in Cozumel at preferred rates, airport shuttles and combo options to explore the highlights of the Yucatan, such as Cenotes, Cozumel Marine Park, Bull Sharks, Wrecks, Whale Shark, as well as world heritage sites.

Tips for… Refreshing Skills
A hugely important subject, and one that should be considered by any diver regardless of your training level. Just like anything, sometimes life gets in the way, we get sidetracked and before you know it, it’s been 2 months out of the water. It may not seem like a lot, but we naturally start to forget things when they are not used. We slow down our actions as we are out of practise and have to think a little more in order to retrieve the information to help make decisions.
There’s nothing wrong with this of course, we cannot always be diving! But it is important that we refresh before getting straight back into it. We obviously conduct a lot of refresher courses here at the dive centre, but we are also realistic, knowing that not everyone will want to pay to refresh their skills with an instructor. That’s also fine too, just be sensible.
Our tips for this would be the following; some will likely seem a little common sense… but it’s always good to have a reminder right?!
First off, when getting back to diving, choose a buddy that you usually dive with or someone that has a higher level of competency in diving. This will give you the reassurance in the water and not have to be worrying about the others person whilst getting back into it yourself.
Secondly, choose a site that you know. Don’t be jumping straight in having seen an amazing new site that you want to try out… that can wait for another time. You have already had a break in your actual diving, without having to then also consider navigating and a new dive plan.
Next, try to leave out the brand new equipment. It’s great that getting back into diving you have decided to buy yourself a new drysuit, fins and BCD, but it all might be a little bit much. Let’s concentrate on just getting back into the water and then move onto those new additions. This kind of change can make even the best of divers anxious.
Last but not least, there’s nothing wrong with staying shallow. Our first dive to get back into it, does not need to break our dive depth record. Stay shallow, enjoy the marine life at this depth, and keep the dive nice and easy. Practise those skills if you would like to, make sure you know where all your equipment is positioned and get comfortable. The ocean isn’t going anywhere… there’s always tomorrow to get in for another!
