Gilberto went out of his way to squeeze us in for an afternoon dive. We arrived at Isla Mujeres not knowing if we would snorkel or scuba but were easily convinced to go out with this very experienced crew. We also liked knowing that other dive shops had their equipment serviced at the center. Rudolpho, our dive master, took just... More

They are the BEST by far!!!!! My travelin' companion only snorkels. I dive--well a little anyway. The guys at CAREY were SO knowledgeable. A gal from the USA who lives part of her life in Isla Mujeres annually , came with us and stayed with me. She, also was wonderful! She was totally empowering, telling us what to do rather... More

This is our second year in a row in Isla and we have already booked for next year. One of the main reasons for returning was Gilberto and his staff at Carey DIve Center. There are plenty of dive shops on the island and I had the unfortunate incident of trying one out before I found Carey. Gilberto was an... More

I have been diving on Isla for 14 years with many different dive companies. I have seen them come and go. I have had some good and bad experiences on the island. I found Giberto about 4 years ago and will never use anyone else. He and his staff are always polite, prompt, knowledgable, and attentive your needs. This was... More

I dive with Carey in March. They were a great dive centre. The centre is organised well, even with lockers for your dive kit, the boat is across the road. The kit was all organised and carried for me. Gilberto and Rudolfo were enthusiastic guides. The dive centre was very responsive to my many emails. I did the underground museum... More

Had a great dive trip with Carey's! I went to the Underwater Museum and Atlantis reef with Cindy and had a great time. Carey's can take you anywhere to dive. They offer a full range of PADI courses if you want to get certified or they can just take you on a great dive.

I just did my advanced diver course with Gilberto at Carey. He is a great instructor, we finished the course with more confidence and ability than we would have expected from such a short course. We did several dives with Carey after the course was finished. The staff is great, they were friendly, informative and genuine. The dive masters are... More

Have used Carey for the last 2 years in Isla. Great little shop. Small groups and very good dive master to diver ratio. Highly recommend Carey Dive and the great crew there.
