Come on down to Cozumel for the best drift diving experience on the Island....

Come on down to Cozumel for the best drift diving experience on the Island. We depart from the Marina Caleta at 9:00am getting in the water for the first dive around 10:00am. On our dives we avoid other dive groups and concentrate on the pristine areas. We will take you to some of the magnificent wonders of Cozumel National Park and seldom traveled reefs. Our dive program is computer based and allows the divers to manage their air consumption up to 75minutes, including a 3 minute safety stop on a buoy line at 15 feet. Our boat will be there to pick up divers as they finish their dive. The first dive is the deepest. After 90 minutes surface interval at a quiet beach where a delicious fresh mexican lunch buffet style is served, we will be heading to the second dive site, a shallower dive, again for 75 minutes. We return to the dock mid afternoon. Dive Masters are there to assist as needed, find and point out turtles, nurse sharks, eagle rays, splendid toadfish, and other elusive creatures. We are glad to help you improve bouyancy and air consumption, and to make sure you safely ascend to the surface at the end of your dive. Usually there is a dive master in front of the group and one at the end. We are safety conscious but try to be unobtrusive. Divers are expected to be responsible for their own actions and dive profiles. Since 1982 Careyitos Dive Team has always been comitted to Cozumel`s coral reefs and its marine life, taking action and participating in conservation efforts long before designated a National Marine Park. The Team’s proactive and service oriented attitude makes for a comfortable dive experience on the boat and underwater. We offer also free gear care, wash and storage.The Boat Careyitos is a Twin engine 40 foot Bertram refurbished for diving, Covered Deck with plenty of room for gearing up, Sun Deck, Galley & Head, Sink and fresh water Shower. Modern Aluminum Windows and Wind Break Curtains, Large Swim Step with two ladders for easy entry & exit. We can take up to 17 divers but we like a Maximum of 12 Divers. Anchored in the Caleta Harbor which is 3.5 km south of town, local taxi is the best way to get there. Our storage place is conveniently located at the corner of the main building turning right once at the Marina entrance.

We arrived for our reserved dive to find Careyitos Boat engine compartment open and an assistant waiting for the repairman to arrive. Simone was not even on site.

We had a big group and most of us did not know what we wanted to do- some snorkel, some dive, some just hang out. Careyitos staff helped EVERYONE enjoy the day. Snorkel and diving was spectacular, lunch was better than a lot of all inclusives, and we had a perfect day.

As always, Simone remains smooth underwater champ, navigating through the beautiful reef and spotting all our marine friends effortlessly. Not only he is an extremely skilled drift diver, he is also knowledgeable, passionate, observant and very helpful with your gear. After my main hose had a leak he was able to switch it to a loaner hose in no time... More

Simone and his crew are great. My last dive was 10 years ago & I had new equipment with me. They made sure I was good-to-go. We had a great time, dives were perfect. Would never hesitate to give my strongest recommendation for them.

If you are looking for someone that can show you the very best reefs in Cozumel this is the boat, particularly if you are an advanced diver. Simone Rossini is top notch.
