On our last trip to Isla Mujeres we used the Carey Dive center for 2 trips, one Whale shark tour and one discover scuba trip. The whale shark tour was great, highly recommended. The next day I took my 13yo for her first ever scuba experience. We went out with Rudolpho and what a great experience it was for everyone.... More

The title says it all! We did shallow dives, we did deep dives, we did wreck dives, we did reef dives. We dove in the morning, we dove in the night. All of our dives were full of fish and coral, with great visibility. Gilberto and Rudolpho have a keen eye for spotting the smalls and knowing just the right... More

We booked our diving with Carey after reading reviews on Tripadvisor which proved to be a great choice. Gilberto was expecting us-we did have to wait, but hey it's Mexico and he told us of a great place for a bite to eat while they switched out the dive gear. We were over to the island for just 2 nights... More

Life happened and it was not until 2007 that I had the chance to go through the course again and "re-certify". My daughter and I did our Open Water Referral Dives at Carey at that time and had such a... More

Did 3 dives with them and: - 2 times 30 minutes to late on appointment. - wrong material with him (wrong fins) - material (breather) broke of on 25meters!!!!!! - ended nightdive (only 2 divers) with 1500psi... DiveMaster (Ed) wasn't motivated... With more than 250dives worldwide was this a BIG DISSAPOINTMENT!!!
