We dove with Gilberto and Rodolfo several times, and are very impressed with their quality of service. We like to support small operations wherever possible, and were pleased with the way they run the dive tours. They are excellent dive guides, taking us to very good dive sites where we saw lots of sea life. It is not Cozumel, but... More

My husband and I tried them out for a whale shark snorkel at the end of July 2014. We were staying at an all inclusive a couple of miles away... More

Chose Carey simply because they were close to our hotel. We were in town 12 days and logged several good dives. Everyone was exceptional, in the shop and on the boat. My only knock is that they seemed to attract the newer divers. They had difficulty getting enough divers to make the run out to several of the wreck sites.... More

We had previously researched dive centers there including reading trip advisor reviews and when we arrived on the island walked around and checked some of them out. We are so very happy we chose to go with... More
