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

Hello all! I used to scuba dive back in high school back when Lincoln was President (kidding...but just sort of). 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!!!

Arrived to Isla Mujeres and went straight to Carey Dive Center because I had seen some good reviews about it. However, when I got there, the place did not look good and there was a receptionist who was not able to talk and therefore give any information. Ended up going for a different dive center...

He fills our scuba tanks for us. He is deaf and mute. He has been working at the shop for more than 10 years and is... More

I dove a wreck and a drift dive with Carey Dive Center and had a great time!! The staff and owner (Gilberto) are very friendly and helpful and strive to make sure all their customers are satisfied, safe, and walk away from every dive a better diver. I would definitely dive with them again!

He took care of everything from the moment we walk into the shop. All the staff was great and very helpful. If you are looking for great customer service look no further. Class... More
