We were recently in Isla Mujeres visiting friends that teach/guide part time at Carey. We were at the end of our trip and were not planning to dive again but we got talked into it. I'm glad we did! We used Carey's gear (except regulators, fins and masks) so that our gear could stay dry for our pending return trip.... More

I had another great day of diving with Carey Dive Center this Month. This is my 3rd trip diving with these guys and once again saw a couple great dive sights with my family and felt very safe. You can contact them by email and schedule your trips very easily before you arrive. There is no doubt that this is... More

I went diving with my 66-year-old mom, who is a novice diver. The guys are Carey asked a ton of questions to make sure my mom was capable and healthy. They took extra care by giving a refresher safety talk and paying special attention to her underwater. They also chose an easy, shallow dive site to accommodate us. They even... More

I went out with Carey for six dives the past few days. Although I am not very experienced at all, I have dived all over the Caribbean. There were never more than five divers on the boat (I will not dive on large boats with hordes of divers). For two days, nearly all the divers were much more experienced than... More

As an well experienced diver, I always return to Gilberto and his crew when I'm on island. You will always get good, safe dives tailored to the experience levels of the divers on board. Whether shallow and easy or deeper and challenging, every dive trip has been a pleasure.

Carey Dive Center was a great experience. We scheduled 6 dives but could only go to 2 due to the weather. When we did dive, they were very attentive, informative and we had a great experience. We will definately dive with them again. They spoke great english, explained everything well and gave us t shirts and discounted our dives since... More

This is a small shop so I rank it against other small operators and it stacks up wonderfully. As a PADI professional I tend to be very meticulous in my evaluation of PADI operators and these guys are awesome. Gilberto made sure customer service and diver safety were the foremost focus. Rudolfo was a great dive leader and ensured we... More

We did 2 really great dives with Ronaldo from Carey Dive Center. We had hoped to go to the reefs further out which included a wreck dive, however it had rained heavily the morning we were supposed to go and were delayed a bit so ended up going about 15 minutes off shore and doing 2 dives about 10m deep....

We had a great week of diving during our trip from Oct 3 to 10. The whole crew seem like family and we have used Carey exclusively on our trips to Isla. The night dive was great, lots of turtles and we always see octopus. We will be back to see them next year!

We were a group of 5 girls - 2 qualified and 3 beginners doing the Discover Scuba Diver. The staff were friendly but the instructors English wasn't great. The DSD watched a video then were taken into shallow water in the sea to do their skills. Then we went to our first dive site which was the MUSA (underwater museum).... More
