Luis Sánchez—owner, and CEO—became a diving instructor and founded “Rango Extendido” in 1980. The name of the school is taken from the American terminology “extended range”, which broadly means ‘go beyond’ your own experience/limits by achieving lengthened bottom times, going deeper and further, and becoming the best of the best. For us, “Rango Extendido” also means ‘out of the ordinary’, intrepid divers, adventurous students & collaborators, and audacious exploration.
Since 1980, the school has provided diving and swimming courses and trips. The school promotes underwater photography and filming, for example in-house documentary projects, it also has collaborated in various studio and made for TV movies. “Rango Extendido” is today a recognised leading enterprise.
As off 1981, “Rango” has organized diving expeditions in Mexico and around the world—Africa, Indonesia, Galápagos, Costa Rica, Antarctica, Artic circle, Great lakes, Bahamas, Cuba, Australia, New Zeland, Island, Tahiti, Micronesia, Fiji, and much more. Diving experiences include shark, wreck, cave, reef, ice, and organised search for new diving sites through adventure exploration.
