We had a great experience with this dive shop. Gilberto was great and went above and beyond, I can not say enough about how great he was. 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

Gilberto is the Man! He was very professional when we arrived and walked us through everything we needed to know. His team was also professional and paid attention to every detail. Their scheduling was very accommodating for our family's diverse interests in Whale Sharking, snorkeling and scuba diving. Also, the equipment was very well maintained and clean. We didn't have...

We can unanamously recommend Carey Dive Centre. As a family of 4 we had 1 diver who had to complete referral dives to get certification and Gilberto was very thorough and provided a calming reassuring experience. From the well maintained equipment to the concern for our comfort in the boat and the water, both Gilberto and Rudolpho exceeded our expectations.... More

I swam with the whale sharks with Carey Dive Center. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I loved Captain Jorge and the guide Sergio. Their experience and knowledge and love for the sea was obvious. The tour left at 8am and we were back by noon with HUGE fish stories to tell. In addition the price of the... More

He took us to a very calm sight so my husband and I could explore the marine park palancar reef while he went throughout the check out. upon completion, 15 year old had a big smile and could not wait to go...

A group from my local dive shop made the journey to Isla Mujerus for a dive trip. Our dive instructor studied under Gilberto. We had two 10 year olds with us. Gilberto and Rudolpho were excellent with them as they became junior divers. Safety is their top concern. We logged 14 dives this trip. Rudolpho took us to many different... More

Gilberto the owner is a very knowledgeable diver and know the local dive sites well. His rental equipment is very good and had various sizes to outfit 4 of us. The panga we had to take us out was in good shape and had enough power to make to the trip quickly to the dive sites. The weather had been... More

I have logged more than 30 dives in the last 4 years with Carey Dive Center. That should say it all. Gilberto and his staff are estupendo! Their professionalism in the shop and on the water makes for a great experience. My wife and daughter did a Discover Scuba course with Carey and from that point on were hooked. They... More

We were recommended Carey Dive Center once we arrived on Isla Mujeres and decided to walk into the shop to see what excursions they offered. The scuba excursions had already left for the day but Gilberto accommodated us for a later excursion on the same day, even at the same price. The two of us had mixed levels of experience... More
