Description:

Come on down to Cozumel for the best drift diving experience on the Island....

Come on down to Cozumel for the best drift diving experience on the Island. We depart from the Marina Caleta at 9:00am getting in the water for the first dive around 10:00am. On our dives we avoid other dive groups and concentrate on the pristine areas. We will take you to some of the magnificent wonders of Cozumel National Park and seldom traveled reefs. Our dive program is computer based and allows the divers to manage their air consumption up to 75minutes, including a 3 minute safety stop on a buoy line at 15 feet. Our boat will be there to pick up divers as they finish their dive. The first dive is the deepest. After 90 minutes surface interval at a quiet beach where a delicious fresh mexican lunch buffet style is served, we will be heading to the second dive site, a shallower dive, again for 75 minutes. We return to the dock mid afternoon. Dive Masters are there to assist as needed, find and point out turtles, nurse sharks, eagle rays, splendid toadfish, and other elusive creatures. We are glad to help you improve bouyancy and air consumption, and to make sure you safely ascend to the surface at the end of your dive. Usually there is a dive master in front of the group and one at the end. We are safety conscious but try to be unobtrusive. Divers are expected to be responsible for their own actions and dive profiles. Since 1982 Careyitos Dive Team has always been comitted to Cozumel`s coral reefs and its marine life, taking action and participating in conservation efforts long before designated a National Marine Park. The Team’s proactive and service oriented attitude makes for a comfortable dive experience on the boat and underwater. We offer also free gear care, wash and storage.The Boat Careyitos is a Twin engine 40 foot Bertram refurbished for diving, Covered Deck with plenty of room for gearing up, Sun Deck, Galley & Head, Sink and fresh water Shower. Modern Aluminum Windows and Wind Break Curtains, Large Swim Step with two ladders for easy entry & exit. We can take up to 17 divers but we like a Maximum of 12 Divers. Anchored in the Caleta Harbor which is 3.5 km south of town, local taxi is the best way to get there. Our storage place is conveniently located at the corner of the main building turning right once at the Marina entrance.

I am a frequent traveler to Cozumel and wanted to try a new dive operator while in for the day on a cruise.

I recently dove 6 days in Cozumel. I had booked my two-tank Nitrox dives with Simone of Careyitos. Our first day of diving together was magnificent, incredible bottom time 60-90 minutes. Simone taught me a trick about my BC I didn't know - very much appreciated. He mentioned he was having issues with his sinuses and by the next morning... More

excellent dive operator. Plenty of room on the boat without a ton of people. Friendly staff eager to assist you with your needs Great food between dives. Definitely recommend this dive operator, especially for those that do not like the 6-pack speedboats and are looking for the more leisurely trip out to the dive sites.

It just doesn't get any better than this. The boat has a very comfortable design so that you can be in the sun or shade at all times. The pace of the dive day is very relaxed and laid back. You will leave out at about 9 am and return around 3:30. In between those hours you will do two... More

These guys have a very responsible and attentive crew. First off, they tend to all of your equipment while you do nothing but chat with other divers. They spend a considerable amount of time cleaning and prepping your mask so it doesn't fog, which by the way mine was crystal clear for each dive. Gaspar helped us into and out... More
