    Hello all,

    I'm going to be spending the month of January 2020 in Cozumel, PDC, and Tulum, and I understand there are a number of GUE instructors in Tulum. I've got a group of 3-4 people all interested in doing a GUE Fundamentals class sometime in the latter half of that month, though I don't see anything scheduled at that time on the GUE website. I'm wondering if anyone here can recommend an instructor in the area that I might be able to get to run the course for us.

    Thanks!

    I think zero gravity is down there?

    Kelvin Davidson, with Third Dimension Diving, is a super person. I visit Tulum annually and run in to him at least once each trip.

    Zero Gravity in Puerto Aventuras is the local GUE place for Q.Roo. Give them a shout and they’ll hook you up.

    While Lanny and Clare are awesome, they're not GUE instructors, so can't help with his question.
    For a fundies class, best bet is to give Zero Gravity a shout, and they will help arrange a class for you. They are GUE instructor trainers/evaluators so trained all the GUE instructors in the area, and so can point you to any of them.

    I just checked Kelvin's website. It appears that his classes for 2020 are not scheduled yet. Guessing if you contacted him now, he could arrange a fundies class convenient for your friends. His website is www.thirddimensiondiving.com. Email addresses are kelvin@gue.com or kelvin@thirddimensiondiving.com.

    As johnnyc mentioned, Zero Gravity is 25 to 30 miles up the road in Puerto Aventuras. Their website is www.zerogravity.com.mx. I could not find any fundies classes in 2020 for them either but am sure they could schedule a class too.

    Good luck.

    Thanks everyone, I've reached out to Kelvin to see if he's available. If he's not then I'll tune in with the folks up at Zero Gravity.

    Hi Brad,
    I am a GUE instructor and currently living in Tulum. I work closely with Kelvin and a bit with the crew up at ZG. You have a lot of great options for instructors in the area, and I am sure you will be able to find one who fits you and your buddies training needs/personalities. I am happy to chat with you about your goals and be a resource for you in any way I can. Feel free to give me a shout here, on Facebook (link in signature), or email at Kieren@GUE.com.

    Best of luck!
