I just went on an introductory dive with Carey and it was great! They are extremely experienced, safe and patient. Gilberto and Rudolfo are awesome divers and provided great service. They also brought along a recently certified master diver to run me through the basics. Could not have been a better experience with better people! If you are a master... More

Full disclosure: We didn't actually dive with Carey Dive Center. It rained heavily on the exact three days that we were on Isla Mujeres to dive. Yet, we experienced firsthand the amazing service and hospitality that Gilberto offers. Shortly before our trip, we emailed Gilberto about diving and he was honest when he replied that he couldn't take any bookings... More

My family of 10 recently enjoyed a one week vacay to Isla Mujeres. While there, we hired Carey to organize five dives, including a night dive, a fishing trip for grouper, trigger fish and snapper and a snorkeling trip with Whale Sharks. They put us face to face with the whale sharks and our first night dive was indescribable. Gilberto... More

My experience with Carey Dive Center is the only place that deserves a positive review after my recent vacation to Cancun, Mexico. To begin, I contacted Carey Dive Center while I was in the United States just to get some basic background information on what I would be doing, the price, what to expect, and how to prepare, Carey Dive...

Gilberto was amazing! He took care of all our special needs (which were not small). He also let us dive to our skill level -- which is important to me. I would very highly recommend Carey Dive Center.

I can't express enough how amazing the Carey Dive Center is. As a brand new diver, I came to Isla Mujeres wanting to dive but was very nervous about doing so. After talking to Gilbert I felt a sense of relief and excitement! My boyfriend and I ended up diving with Gilbert all 3 days we dove because of how... More

I am a former dive instructor, so I have a lot of experience with dive shops. Everyone at Carey dive goes out of their way to make sure you have a good experience, very safety conscious, equipment seems in good condition, good pricing. Very fishy dive sites. As soon as the water warms (73 is waaaaay too cold for me),... More

We went to Carey dive centre last year and we lived it! It was the best service I ever had. If you want to dive near isla mujeres, it's the place to go. On our last day, they even caught fish for us to eat. We also did a drift dive witch was amazing! We saw turtles and dolphins. We... More

Our dive master (Gilberto) was very professional and stressed safety at all times. He led us around the reefs, pointing out sleeping nurse sharks in caves, lobsters, etc. He allowed us to maximize our bottom time where we were able to dive for an hour very comfortably on each of our two dives. We will return to dive in Isla... More

I e-mailed Gilberto just a few days before my trip and was greeted and treated like family. I was performing my checkout dives and traveling with 2 other certified divers. Gilberto made sure we all had opportunities to dive at our experience levels and arranged for Sydney to guide me through my checkouts. Special thanks to Sydney for boosting my... More
