“Dive your air with the BEST”

Careyitos Advanced Divers

Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

“Dive your air with the BEST”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

Simone and crew are the best. We began diving with Ricardo and Careyitos in 2005 after Wilma. They were the first dive operation ever to encourage me to use all of my tank. The crew know I would like at least 1 one hundred minute dive. Our family are all divers. Two years ago we rented out the entire boat. We had two Discover Scuba, one open water certification and 7 certified divers. Everyone was thrilled with the service, attention and warmth we each received. We love having dinner (and drinks) with Simone, Cielo and who ever else is available. We were there in early February and are going back end of March. We are bringing another Discover Scuba diver, and three to do their open water certification.

Advanced dives that are led by very experienced, highly skilled divemasters. Multiple divemasters in the water with small groups of divers-perfect!

“Dive with the Best!”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

I am a repeat diver with Careyitos. I started diving in Cozumel in 1997 and have been back every year, often multiple times a year, and always dive with Tony, Simone and crew.
I cannot recommend it more highly. Dive your tank or 75 minutes is the rule, but come up earlier if that is your desire - no pressure and no problem. There are probably other excellent dive operations on Cozumel, but I have found mine!

“Safety first and I learn every time.”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

We rent a house and use taxis. They are like family to us. At night we usually walk to a restaurant. One dinner we will have the crew over for a grill out. What a great vacation every year
