Our dive master (Gilberto) was very professional and stressed safety at all times. He led us around the reefs, pointing out sleeping nurse sharks in caves, lobsters, etc. He allowed us to maximize our bottom time where we were able to dive for an hour very comfortably on each of our two dives. We will return to dive in Isla... More

I e-mailed Gilberto just a few days before my trip and was greeted and treated like family. I was performing my checkout dives and traveling with 2 other certified divers. Gilberto made sure we all had opportunities to dive at our experience levels and arranged for Sydney to guide me through my checkouts. Special thanks to Sydney for boosting my... More

I wanted to take a minute and tell you about my experience with Carey Dive Center in Isla Mujeres. We were planning a diving trip to the island for quite some time. I had emailed several of the shops and had made plans with another shop. Originally I had either overlooked Carey or I didn't find them initially. I had... More

This was my first time scuba diving so I was a little apprehensive. We did the discover scuba dive where they teach you some skills then take you out on a dive. The whole place was very professional and the dive instructors were great. They have lockers at the shop where you can leave all your stuff so you don't... More

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

I wrote this back when we went, but didn't make the time to submit it. I am passionate about this experience, which is why I'm submitting it this much later. 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
