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.

As many divers (both new & returning ones, me included) here already said so many excellent things about Careyitos Advanced Divers, I don't need to add too much. But when you had an absolutely fantastic experience with a company for the first time, and with your expectations set so high, it's almost impossible to beat that first great experience - yet it does, EVERYTIME. Then it has to be shared and recognized.

"Wunderwater" dive instructor that he is, Simone knows how to get things done. No doubt.
He can spot those amazing marine creatures better than sharks and he can navigate through beautiful Cozumel water better than turtles. He is a real pro in what he does; overseeing & managing the entire dive operation on and off the boat everyday- while making it look easy somehow.

Here's one more thing I need to add: On my third day during our second dive, when a storm rolled in suddenly with heavy rain and blowing wind it made our ride back pretty rough. We were tossed around up and down, side to side during one of my wildest boat rides ever. But, not to worry as we're on the mighty Careyitos with its super crews to keep us safe. While other dive/tour boats had to abandon their boats near shore or sadly ended up crashing into reef/rocks nearby, our skilled Captain was able to bring us back safely to marina and park Careyitos in her spot perfectly in one shot! How super-amazing is that!? Hats off to Captain Jose!! Big time.

It's just so obvious: You are in good -the absolute BEST- hands with Simone & Careyitos crews.
No kidding!

First of all, Simone is a one of a kind man whose only interest is for you to enjoy and have the best time you could ever have. A fantastic and responsible scubadiver that knows the reefs like the palm of his hand, the whole crew of Careyitos made our trip a perfect adventure. If you are thinking of scubadiving you can't let go the opportunity to meet Simone and have a wonderful experience!

I have been diving with Careyitos for about 7 years and my wife recently completed her open water certification with Simone. Whether you are advanced, just starting out, or would like to begin with a "Discover Scuba" course, this is the outfit to do it with. Hands down the best dive operation I have used.
