I can't express enough how amazing the Carey Dive Center is. As a brand new diver, I came to Isla Mujeres wanting to dive but was very nervous about doing so. After talking to Gilbert I felt a sense of relief and excitement! My boyfriend and I ended up diving with Gilbert all 3 days we dove because of how... More

I am a former dive instructor, so I have a lot of experience with dive shops. Everyone at Carey dive goes out of their way to make sure you have a good experience, very safety conscious, equipment seems in good condition, good pricing. Very fishy dive sites. As soon as the water warms (73 is waaaaay too cold for me),... More

We went to Carey dive centre last year and we lived it! It was the best service I ever had. If you want to dive near isla mujeres, it's the place to go. On our last day, they even caught fish for us to eat. We also did a drift dive witch was amazing! We saw turtles and dolphins. We... More

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
