My husband and I dove with Hilberto from Carey Dive Center on our honeymoon in April earlier this year. Hilberto was an excellent dive master, we felt safe and had lots of fun. The rest of the staff at the shop were also extremely friendly, they felt like old friends. Hopped on the boat at the beach which was just... More

1. From the first email communication, the shop was responsive, clearly understood my questions, and answered them thoughtfully. 2. When I arrived, the staff immediately made me feel comfortable and welcome. 3. When I was the only person going diving one day, the team took me on a special trip and made me a delicious seafood lunch afterwards. 4. The... More

With a visit to Isla Muejeres to dive over an extended weekend, I choose Carey Dive Center for how close the shop was to my resort (2 blocks) and the flexibility of diving. Through email, I was able to arrange most of my diving and a whale shark excursion with or through Gilberto's shop. He arranged an Cenotes trip with... More

Me and my friends would suggest this dive centre! They were so nice to us! Best tour ever. Saw whale sharks, had extra snorkel tour, unexpected chill out time on beach eating melon and drinking beer! We will go back for some diving!

Gilberto is the man! Very knowledgeable, great english, and experienced with over 20 years of diving. He is owner of the shop. 1/2 the group went through the discovery scuba program. He made it work so that our group of certified and discovery class could go out on same boat. We booked a whale shark tour through them as well.... More

The wife and I booked the whale shark experience and followed by some scuba diving the next day. The shop is easy to find. They take care of all of our questions, concerns and needs. I'd read about the collective for whale shark tours, so it was only a small surprise that we joined them. 5 couples on our boat... More

I recently dove and snorkeled with Carey Dive Center. My family and I booked the Whale Shark excursion. My husband and I loved it! It was a bit more physically intensive than we had originally assumed which limited my mother and fathers participation. However, my husband and I had a wonderful time! The next day we dove (just the two... More

This was my first time diving with Carey Dive Center and they were wonderful! I'm still rather new at diving and had some fears about equalizing since my last dive in 2014 left me hearing things like Charlie Browns teacher's voice...for a month. These fellas listened to my fears and assured me I'd be fine on a shallow dive. They... More

Finished my 4 open water dives to become certified through Carey Dive Center. I had open heart surgery in 2009 and Gilberto was very concerned for my safety. I really appreciated the cautious approach and safety first attitude. We dove in the most beautiful coral reefs, saw sea turtles, and all kinds of beautiful fish. They made my training dives...
