We had book a tour with other operatot that departs from same Marina La Paz. We were not sure so before we parked we asked the lady in the desk if we were in the right area. She welcomed us very nicely when we walk in and she told us they were the only operator in the area and send... More

We recently went for a snorkeling with whales shark tour, and everything has been great! Price is super fair, staff very friendly and we spent a very good time while on boat.

I contacted several diving centers in La Paz, and ended up choosing Buseo Carey because of their professional feedback, and the fact that they limit the number of people on the boat. I was not disappointed: the staff handles everything in a very professional and kind manner (including the necessary paperwork and payment). We ended up being 3 divers, doing... More

We (myself, wife and 21 year old daughter) were spending 2 weeks in Cabo SL during spring break (March 2016) and took a couple of days in La Paz to decompress, do the whale shark tour and do a couple of dives. We chose BC because of TA reviews even though they were a touch more expensive than the competition.... More

These guys are by far the best snorkeling and diving guides in La Paz. In the past 2 years, my family has visited La Paz twice, the last time largely because of the fantastic experiences shared by the people at Carey. Request Javier and Chin (Sheen) as your guide/captain for the day (or in our case, 10 days)! We can't... More

So here’s the bottom line: If you're a diver, don’t go to La Paz in February. We were only able to dive two of the five planned days because high winds messed with the port and the seas. But the good news is when you do go to La Paz, you’d find yourself spoiled and pampered by these folks. We... More

The group I was traveling with took a tour to snorkel/swim with sea lions and whale sharks. While booking the tour, we were taken care of very well and the experience was great. It's a family run business that's been in operation for 9 years at the time of this review, I believe. They take into account the wind and... More

This is a small and basic dive shop. However, they are well organized and the boats are spacious and very well maintained. The trip to the dive sites is rather long, clocking in at over an hour or more (we left at 8am and returned at 3pm). Therefore, to defray the cost of fuel, a two-tank dive costs approximately $50...
